Burn Damage - Age of Vultures (Raging Planet Records)

Burn Damage – Age of Vultures (Raging Planet Records)

  This is the début album of a Portuguese quartet from Lisbon and thankfully it’s not lamentable or operatic, but rather solid thrashy death with plenty of groove to get its hooks in you. If you were to hear the intro to “Age of Vultures” in.. Read More

Power Trip - Nightmare Logic (Southern Lord)

Power Trip – Nightmare Logic (Southern Lord)

Hailing out of Dallas, Texas, Power Trip are a pretty intense thrash metal group. With a very prominent early 80’s thrash sound mixed with some crossover thrash influences and some touches of grindcore and powerviolence in terms of the rhythmic assaults, this five piece mean.. Read More
Havok – Conformicide (Century Media)

Havok – Conformicide (Century Media)

NO KARATE IN THE PIT! You heard!  Denver based Thrashers Havok are still as vehemently old school in their approach to music and there are no toxic beer mugs or tough guy macho stylings in sight. I interviewed founding vocalist/guitarist at Download last summer and.. Read More
Ghoul, Insanity Alert & Lunatic Hooker – London Underworld 1/3/17

Ghoul, Insanity Alert & Lunatic Hooker – London Underworld 1/3/17

There’s normally all sorts of ghoulish behaviour once the sun sets in Camden Town but tonight was going to be like none other and all manner of grizzly and gruesome things were about to happen in the Underworld. First we had a date with a.. Read More
Solitary - The Diseased Heart Of Society (UKEM)

Solitary – The Diseased Heart Of Society (UKEM)

These old school thrash lords from Preston have been on the UK underground scene since the mid-nineties. Having earned a reputation for delivering uncompromising, undiluted work for this genre, “The Diseased Heart Of Society” represents another important chapter in the band’s history. Living in an..

Sanctuary – Inception (Century Media)

Sanctuary – Inception (Century Media)

Not a new album – quite the opposite! This is actually how it all started, this is how the band sounded before they were signed, before Dave Mustaine’s mentor-ship, before…to put it into a musical time context, these tracks were actually recorded before fellow Seattlers.. Read More
Torrefy - The Infinity Complex (S/R)

Torrefy – The Infinity Complex (S/R)

Canadian thrashers, Torrefy have released their second full length and an interesting listen it is too. What we have is a clever blend of thrash and groove that is blackened up just enough to give it an edge that’s pretty darn infectious. The musicianship is.. Read More
Suppressive Fire – Nature of War (Lost Apparitions Records)

Suppressive Fire – Nature of War (Lost Apparitions Records)

Well, this was quite a surprise! When the (rather attractive) digipack CD arrived through the door, and I saw that this was an American thrash album, I must confess that I had a certain sound already stereotypically going through my head. Suppressive Fire, from Raleigh.. Read More
Overkill - The Grinding Wheel (Nuclear Blast)

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 you will get with any.. Read More
Iron Reagan - Crossover Ministry (Relapse)

Iron Reagan – Crossover Ministry (Relapse)

Having a bad day? Maybe the boss is giving you the shits and the rest of humanity is conspiring to just not play nice? 30 minutes is all you need to cast away these unpleasantries and Iron Reagan may just be the cure. “Crossover Ministry”.. Read More
Kreator - Gods Of Violence (Nuclear Blast)

Kreator – Gods Of Violence (Nuclear Blast)

For their fourteenth album Kreator are back with a couple extra features they haven’t really bothered with before, namely four tracks with orchestral accompaniments arranged by Fleshgod Apocalypse, collaborating with German pop artist Dagobert along with harps and bagpipes on other tracks. What’s also clearly.. Read More
