Hell Fire – Mania (RidingEasy Records)

On the cusp of a new Formula 1 season, this avid follower of the motorsports spectacle might have been sympathetic to a band whose sophomore release (2017s “Free Again”) paid tribute to the late great Ayrton Senna. However, when said… Continue Reading →

Nuckin’ Futs – Abyss (Blood Fire Death)

Catalonia is a hotbed of social unrest at the moment. Feelings of oppression, loss of cultural identity, wanting to go their own way… It’s the perfect foil for some good old fashioned thrash metal! Nuckin’ Futs, a five piece from… Continue Reading →

Destruction – Under Attack (Nuclear Blast)

‘Big Teutonic 4’ my arse! There’s only THREE mega successful German thrash bands in my book and that’s Kreator, Sodom and these guys – Destruction. How those beer soaked loons, Tankard, found their way on the ‘Big Teutonic 4’ EPs… Continue Reading →

Kayser – Read Your Enemy (Listenable)

I actually heard this bands “Kaiserhof” debut album years ago but forgot about it, so I gave it another spin to remind myself of what it was like and much like this new album Kayser play thrash metal and have… Continue Reading →

Shrapnel – The Virus Conspires (Candlelight)

Thrash Metal. What does that mean to you? For me it means tight jeans, Converse basketball boots, patched denim over leather (Bonded By Blood back patch was mine), mullets, Lowenbrau and getting smashed to bits at Kings, The Greyhound or… Continue Reading →

Bloodstock Open Air Sunday 12th August 2012

Sunday morning. Hungover and suffering from that nearing-the-end-of-the-festival fatigue, one is in dire need of a pick-me-up. Something loud and heavy to get the blood pumping as it were. Off to a galloping start then, are female-fronted Canucks, Kobra And… Continue Reading →

Project Pain – I Have Sinned (F.A. Records)

Thrash metal. This style can mostly be split into Good thrash metal and bad thrash metal…with a few variations in between. I mean, when you get an album like this in the post you know not to expect anything groundbreaking,… Continue Reading →

Dust Bolt – Violent Demolition (Napalm Records)

NWOWTM an acronym I’ve made up for New Wave Of Worldwide Thrash Metal, more or less sums up what has happened to the thrash metal genre in recent years, well I’d say from about 2004ish with an exponential explosion of… Continue Reading →

Prong – Carved Into Stone (Long Branch Records)

In the late 80s and early 90s crossover music sprang up all over the place and then died, at the time, once the bands realised that making actual thrash was better anyway or that true hardcore was a better way… Continue Reading →
