Haven’t posted much on the blog lately.
Between life and here I have been listening to many new bands some many have heard and maybe some you have not.
Most recent LP I have on the way is Pestilence Testimony Of The Ancients the album that followed the insanely good Consuming Impulse.
This posting is about albums I have tracked down and are on their way here from all over the world. But are not in my hand yet.
I love Death Metal I have a pretty large collection of Death Metal on Vinyl.
Also have quite a bit of Thrash Metal and Punk and other styles of Metal.
It reminded me Thrash is what got me into metal. In the 80’s it was Metallica, Testament, Megadeth.
Thrash is where Death metal came from.
I started looking and realized in America Thrash pretty much disappeared it’s not dead but there isn’t a movement going on here is the states. As I looked I found France of all places has a thrash movement going on and it seems to be a movement in Europe as a whole.
I discovered fantastic Thrash bands: Thrashback, Ultra-Violence, Bio-Cancer, Infinite Translation the list is huge I have only plucked a few bands out of what seems to be many.
While MP3s and some CD’s can be purchased here in the states all the LPs “Vinyl” releases are not here they are over in Europe.
I discovered Bio-Cancer a few weeks back they formed in 2010. And hail from Athens, Greece.
When I heard them for the 1st time I was instantly on the search for the LP.
On it’s way the excellent album is called Ear Piercing Thrash.
It’s seriously a must hear Thrash metal band. This is their 1st full album release.
A month or so back maybe more I discovered another excellent band Ultra-Violence.
Another great band again from over in Europe they hail from Italy.
my introduction to them was their 1st full length album Privilege to Overcome and absolutely heavy n fast album it will blow you away.
Another LP on it’s way is Ultra-Violence Wildcrash E.P their very 1st release but a mini album of 5 songs which after followed Privilege to Overcome.
Since the majority of purchases lately were from Europe I wanted to add at least 1 Thrash band and they are from my area Tampa Florida so that makes them cool before I even heard them.
They do have some rough Death metal like vocals in the music but it is ultimately Thrash.
The band is Generichrist they hail from the good ole US of A right here in Tampa Florida.
The albums title I have on way is Rotting In The Swamp. One of the songs is called “Tampa Morgue”
Good thing about this Thrash band is if you can find the LPs on sale you don’t have to spend expensive European shipping charges.
The LP I have on the way is a Mini-Album 12″ Vinyl with 3 songs.
I have listened to them and yes they are good. Are they as good as the 2 European bands I listed here in my opinion No. But go ahead and get some of these albums compare yourself you tell me.
What can I say about Thrash today?! It KICKS FUCKIN ASS is what I say!
Go ahead see if I’m wrong these European bands know what was missing and they are doing it right!
