We tinker around a bit, we strip the engine down to rebuild it by adding a couple new parts whilst taking some out, always trying to make it run faster and sounding louder, this time though we’ve added a bigger exhaust system and a shitload of nitrous …and a cup holder’’.

Damnation Plan released a new single from it’s upcoming full length


Finnish progressive melodic death metallers Damnation Plan have released a new title track single from their upcoming album “Reality Illusion”.

Drummer/songwriter/lyricist Jarkko Lunnas comments:

“Creating this album took us 3+ years of hard work, driving me and some of us almost insane during the process of recording the album almost entirely ourselves. It was a massive task but I believe it served the end result well!

The album deals with separating the truth from the beliefs and seeing it (or not seeing it) through the different bubbles that we’ve learned to live in our stable and modern societies. We are estranged from the reality until we are forced to face it.

The album delivers the message covering a whole spectrum of feelings from an atmospheric and emotional perspective, all the way to the maximal intensity.”

The band is also running a Pledge Music pre-order campaign for the upcoming full length album, out March 10 2017.

By pre-ordering the album from the campaign you’ll get 10+ in-depth video documentary episodes about the making of the album. The campaign can be found here: http://pledgemusic.com/damnationplan

The album was mixed by Dan Swanö (Edge of Sanity, Nightingale, Bloodbath, etc) at Unisound Studios.

01 – Intro
02 – Beyond These Walls

INTERVIEW: Thrash Bombz (Italy)


INTERVIEW: Thrash Bombz (Italy)

Interview with (Giuseppe “UR” Peri: rhythm guitar) by Carina Lawrence

Dead” on the 3rd March 2017 via Iron Shield Records. Find out what to expect
from the upcoming release along with the bands plans for the rest of year from
rhythm guitarist of Thrash Bombz, Giuseppe “UR” Peri…
Can you tell us how Thrash Bombz came to be in 2007?                                                         Thrash Bombz was born in December 2007 from the ashes of Necrosis (death/thrash
band from AG), to play Thrash Metal without compromises. The band has recorded
the demotape “Sicilian Way of Thrash!!” in 2012 and in the first days of 2013 the
new EP “Mission of Blood” 5 tracks of Pure Thrash, released on limited “green” tape
for Tridroid Records in October 2013. In January 2014 Iron Shield Records has
released in CD, our first full length “Mission of Blood” with 12 tracks and in
September the new EP “Dawn”. “Master of the Dead” our second full length will be
out the 03/03/2017 for Iron Shield Records!!! http://www.ironshieldrecords.de/
How did you arrive at the name Thrash Bombz?                                                                         It’s simple and straight in your face with THRASH attitude…
How would you describe your sound?
Evil Speed Thrash Metal.
You recorded your first demotape “Sicilian Way of Thrash’ back in 2012,
how would you say your sound has progressed since the beginning days of
the band?
The progression of the sound it’s evident, in the first days we were more influenced
by American death metal of ’90/’91, now our sound it’s a commingling of the great
heavy metal of the ’80s with more speed metal tendencies.
How happy were you with the sound and response to your first full length
2014 album “Mission of Blood”?
Yeah, we had great responses with our first full length “Mission of Blood”, from the
audience in our live show and with the media (radios, ‘zine, etc…).
How do you think your sound has evolved since then?
In the right way, our music grows with us. Now we’re very pride of the new album
“Master of the Dead”, 10 new songs of evil speed metal. More aggressive but with a
touch of melody.
What can you tell us about your second upcoming new album “Master Of The
Dead” which is unleashed on March 3rd this year?
We hope that the new album let us the possibility to reach new fans to make more
tours with the band. We need your support for spreading the disease!!!
