Testament, Exodus & Death Angel – Manchester Academy 7/3/20

Without question this stellar thrash package, dubbed ‘The Bay Area Strikes Back’, was the best to hit our shores in a very long time. Indeed the legacy of each band is legendary to say the least as this colossal tour… Continue Reading →

Profanator – Fallen (FDA Records)

Mexican act Profanator are the final stab I got in my last reviews of this month and are by far the most progressive yet still inherently beastly on every song. This fourth album was actually out in 2018 on Mat… Continue Reading →

Slaughter Messiah – Cursed to the Pyre (High Roller)

Belgium’s deadly thrashers…a statement of fact from the PR material. Their earlier material has made waves for myself and I could not wait to hear their new output. One thing that is a touch missing is the large striking band… Continue Reading →

Necrowretch – The Ones From Hell (Season Of Mist)

For many years I had a purist outlook on Blackened Death Metal, it was a mix that I didn’t really enjoy. Mainly it’s sad to say for the Black Metal element. Whilst I’ve always been a fan of Black Metal… Continue Reading →

Sepultura – Quadra (Nuclear Blast)

This is quite easily Sepultura’s best album in a really long time. Sure, I’ve enjoyed the last 3 but nowhere near as much as this one. Perhaps is has to do with the quartering up of the album and that… Continue Reading →

Sylosis – Cycle Of Suffering (Nuclear Blast)

An award for the most unexpected release of the year thus far goes to Reading’s Sylosis having retuned from what seemed at the time to be a very definite hiatus (that usually segues into full time retirement from said band)… 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 →

Red Death – Sickness Divine (Century Media)

Crossover has not received the same resurgence and regurgitation as its purer cousin despite many of the dayglo thrash revivalists sounding more like D.R.I and S.O.D than Destruction and Kreator. Red Death from Washington D.C. bring it old skool. Sickness… Continue Reading →

Exmortus – Legions Of The Undead (M-Theory Audio)

Catching attention supporting Obituary on these shores in 2018 and with The Sound Of Steel resonating in our ears this Californian Melodeath, thrash act are having a bit of fun and letting their hair down with this stop-gap EP. This… Continue Reading →

Klaw – LightCrusher (S/R)

This is the début album by the Swiss quintet, a thrash metal band and contain a member of Poltergeist, which turns out to be one unknown to me, as I only ever managed to pick up ’91s ‘Behind My Mask’…. Continue Reading →

Iron Age – The Sleeping Eye (20 Buck Spin Records)

I am slightly baffled as to why 20 Buck Spin has decided to pick this up for a reissue from Texan bunch Iron Age when the original release from 2009 is still easily available including the vinyl editions. Added to… Continue Reading →

Reveal! – Scissorgod (Sepulchral Voice)

My first experience with Sweden’s Reveal was putting their debut ‘Nocturne of Eyes and Teeth’ as my number one album of 2011. ‘Scissorgod’ represents their third release with a style now difficult to pin down. Black, death, thrash, even avant-garde,… Continue Reading →
