Hail Satan – Rad Metal EP Review and Interview

Just the name alone, Rad Metal by Hail Satan, is enough to tell you exactly what the fuck you're in for with this EP. That, being super party, good times focused thrash/speed metal nastiness. Rad Metal is almost a battle cry belched into... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Grinder – Dawn for the Living (1988)

Germany has given us an insurmountable amount of just fucking killer, and often classic, thrash and speed metal bands over the past thirty plus years so it's no surprise that some bands would slip through the Teutonic cracks and falling... Continue Reading →

Helloween – Walls of Jericho (1985)

When it comes to Helloween I've always maintained that all you really need are the two Keeper of the Seven Keys albums. Those, in my opinion, are the template for power metal. I've heard some of the albums after those two but... Continue Reading →

Purgatory – Tied to the Trax (1986)

Purgatory combine a lot of my metal weaknesses into one fucking package: One full-length release, 80′s, American power/speed/thrash metal. Who am I to deny? Well, I’m not and if you heard this you wouldn’t either. The power/speed/thrash hybrid I mentioned... Continue Reading →
