Destruction – Born To Perish (Nuclear Blast)

Some bands are a bastard to write about; it is easy to wax lyrical about song structures and compositional ability, virtuoso performances or atmospheric impact. It can be difficult to write about bands that have a tried and tested formula… Continue Reading →

Repent – Condemned To Fail (High Roller Records)

I can’t believe it is seven years since this German band released their third effort “Vortex Of Violence” a release that holds aloft the banner of true thrash metal. I never caught onto the band back in the 90s when… Continue Reading →

Excuse – Prophets From the Occultic Cosmos (Shadow Kingdom)

I tried to do some digging about for info on this band but my efforts were in vain. Excuse are an enigmatic bunch as far as I am concerned, so based off what little information I have available to me,… Continue Reading →

Abbath – Outstrider (Season Of Mist)

As a long-time fan of Immortal I am starting to feel like the tug of love corpse painted child. The parents can no longer see eye to eye and are dropping us kids off at a Toby Carvery to be… Continue Reading →

Birdflesh – Extreme Graveyard Tornado (Everlasting Spew)

Forming in Vaxjo – Sweden in 1992 the only original member is Drummer/ Vocalist Smattro Ansjovis. This is only the bands fourth full length but they have peppered eardrums with E.P.s and splits over the last three decades.  Panda Flamenco (bass/vocals)… Continue Reading →

Vulture – Ghastly Waves & Battered Graves (Metal Blade)

In an era when metal has taken on so many forms it’s somehow comforting to think back to thrash metal as one of the genre’s purest. Who can argue with Fistful of Metal, Feel The Fire and Kill ‘Em All?… Continue Reading →

Indian band Kryptos are really no stranger to these pages, this is their latest offering and man does it work out really well! Their art of powerful heavy metal, bounded with a true magical sense of melody, well, this is… Continue Reading →

Terrible Headache – Der Rote Baron (Boersma Records)

So, I don’t know too much about Terrible Headache, except for two things: 1) They are German; and 2) Before this, their last album was released way back in 1998. Now, I have this mate who has a number of… Continue Reading →

Xentrix – Bury The Pain (Listenable Records)

23 years since they last released anything, with this being their second reformation since disbanding in ’96, Xentrix are finally back with a new album. After Chris Astley left in 2015, a new vocalist/guitarist Jay Walsh replaced him 2017 and… Continue Reading →

Footprints In The Custard – A New Low (S/R)

One of the core concepts in Thrash Metal is how fun it is. Sure, you can be all serious like Slayer, Metallica (pre-1991) and Megadave are, but Anthrax were the band who managed to bring the fun with their infectious… Continue Reading →
