Coal Chamber – Rivals (Napalm)

Warfaith – Wise Man Is Dead (S/R)

This is a French thrash band, although to my mind this isn’t thrash as I would normally categorise as being so. It’s very modern, very nineties and noughties, it has aggressive “core” vocals, a few riffs here and there that… Continue Reading →
