Havok – V (Century Media)

Colorado thrasher’s Havok are back with their 5th studio release, the appropriately named ‘V’. After “Conformicide”, their 2017 release which was greeted with a mixed reception but delivered with a high intensity touring schedule, ‘V’ sees the band pushing onwards… Continue Reading →

Bonded – Rest In Violence (Century Media)

FRRAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSHHHH! There’s not a huge amount of great new thrash metal bands out there. Sure we had the thrash revival a few years back with bands like Evile & Municipal Waste waving the flag for those of us that used… Continue Reading →

Overkill, Destruction, Flotsam and Jetsam – London Islington Academy 21/3/19

Owing to the venue’s policy to take a donation for an animal shelter for guest access, and only accepting cash in this digital age, I had to queue twice after being instructed to find the nearest ATM and come back… Continue Reading →

Overkill – The Wings of War (Nuclear Blast)

Overkill need no introduction, they are thrash masters and since I got into them in the 80’s I have never felt disappointed by one of their releases, no matter what people say, these are the dogs bollocks, always have been,… Continue Reading →

Autopsy – Puncturing The Grotesque (Peaceville)

This seven track EP is Autopsy celebrating their thirtieth year as a band. Thirty gore soaked, depraved and sick as fuck years. I make no bones about it, Autopsy are one of my personal favourite bands of any metal genre… Continue Reading →

Overkill – The Grinding Wheel (Nuclear Blast)

Overkill are probably my most respected band, during the quiet years of music (ahhh the 90’s!), this band continued (as did some others I might add, I know!) to record great thrash albums, developing with each one. But one thing… Continue Reading →

Paradox – Pangea (AFM)

It’s an unfortunate fact that many 80’s Metal bands, right across the board, just can’t win whatever they do. Thrash bands cop for it more than most because of the 90’s. They either split up (and get a kicking for… Continue Reading →
