Holy Terror – Mind Wars (1988)

Thrash, a genre I used to think was a one trick pony, has supplied me with so many surprises and lost masterworks that it makes my fucking head spin. It must have been hard to be a thrash band in... Continue Reading →

Vendetta – Go and Live… Stay and Die (1987)

I think thrash, more so than the other metal genres, is the one that is misrepresented the most. Maybe not misrepresented but pigeonholed the most perhaps. Most genres acknowledge numerous innovators and and legendary acts where as thrash has really... Continue Reading →

Invocator – Excursion Demise (1991)

I’ve been in a bit of a thrash mood the past couple weeks. I’ve been jamming some old classics, filling out some discographies here and there, and finding killer new, well, new to me, thrash classics. Take today’s featured band... Continue Reading →

Demolition Hammer – Tortured Existence (1990)

Demolition Hammer’s 1992 album Epidemic of Violence ranks as one of the best thrash metal albums ever to be produced, by anyone, ever. That’s not opinion, that’s just a fucking fact. Just listen to it, you can’t deny the sheer thrash... Continue Reading →

Znowhite – Act of God (1988)

While checking out reviews for my last post about Realm, I discovered this band Znowhite. Yes, the name is terrible, and the artwork for this album is even worse, but bear with me here, it gets better I promise. Just... Continue Reading →

Deathrow – Riders of Doom (1986)

Sometimes all you want to do is thrash your fucking brains until they explode from your ears. In moments like that, you cannot go wrong with German thrash. Particularly the 80′s time period of German thrash. Kreator, Destruction, and Sodom... Continue Reading →
