NUCLEAR ASSAULT

Nuclear Assault are among thrash metal’s most socially aware groups, making room for serious subject matter (and occasional goofs) in their careening speed metal riffing. They also remained closer to the world of hardcore than most of their peers, and at their late-’80s peak released some of the most uncompromising thrash metal offerings of the time including “Survive” in 1988, and at the peak of their career “Handle with Care” in 1989. After performing on Anthrax’ 1984 debut Fistful of Metal, bass player Dan Lilker was canned because of issues Read more...

TANKARD ALBUM COVER AND TRACKLIST REVEALED

German thrash metal heroes TANKARD just revealed the album cover for their upcoming new album „R.I.B.“. The artwork was brought to life by Patrick Strogulski, who is a student of Sebastian Krüger, the former TANKARD cover artist. Mastermind Gerre states: „R.I.B. continues the story of Chemical Invasion. The crazy professor is back to take revenge on mankind, because he failed in 1987! The cover is done again by Patrick Strogulski, an apprentice of Sebastian Krüger and really hits the spot! As always with Tankard, things shouldn’t be taken too seriously!” The band also Read more...

VOIVOD

Anomaly. Seminal. Iconoclasts. A “band’s band”. These are the nebulous words that sum up a group of artists now in their third decade of collaboration and creation. These terms are yokes that Voivod must bear. Yet there is a purity in this fate that will live forever. What were the odds in the first place? Four young men in Quebec, addled by art, high on hash, fueled by Venom and Motorhead. Post-heavy metal, pre-MTV. The 80s were upon them and the threat of nuclear war seemed almost inevitable. Why not live out the endtimes sipping absinthe, writing music, and donning Read more...

ANNIHILATOR

Canadian metal band Annihilator is the lifework of guitarist Jeff Waters. Founded in 1984, the band took the metal scene by storm with their debut 1989 release “Alice In Hell”, upped the ante with 1990’s “Never, Neverland” and finished off their 3-record deal (Roadrunner Records) with “Set The World On Fire”. While most late-80’s era metal bands disappeared, Annihilator went on to forge 9 more studio cds, dvds and live releases, all consistently selling well and remaining true to the heavy metal cause.

And they kept their worldwide fanbase for all these years, delivering one strong album after another. When you think of beer and Thrash Metal the name TANKARD is the first that will pop up for sure. Founded in Read more...

METAL CHURCH

  Born out of the West Coast Metal scene of the 80’s, Metal Church quickly became one of the standout talents of the genre. After signing a deal with Elektra records, they released two critically acclaimed albums. Their self-titled release “Metal Church” postured the band as one of the pioneers of the thrash/metal scene. The All Music Guide had this to say about the debut: “The band’s incredibly tight musicianship is a highlight all on it’s own. This album remains an overlooked classic of straight-ahead American-bred heavy metal.” With the Read more...
