Kreator is currently touring with Lamb Of God as support, but they managed to slot in two UK headline shows, one in Leeds and the other in Brighton on the 11th of March, which I was fortunate to attend. To make the occasion even more unique, this was the first time the German Thrash veterans have played in Brighton, and to top it off, they played a special deep cuts set list, especially for these two shows. The CHALK venue is a small intimate venue; you wouldn’t expect a band of their calibre to play here, which added to the rare thrash metal spectacle.
At last the wait is over as today, Hellripper have released their brand new album ‘Warlocks Grim & Withered Hags’, a record that has seen the band push their sound further forward more than ever before.
Building upon Hellripper’s signature Thrash Metal ‘Warlocks Grim & Withered Hags’ pushes the envelope of the Scottish artist’s sound. Blending moments of fierce Black Metal, furious Speed Metal and Scottish folklore it’s a must listen for any fan of Metal.
Time flies! Looking back at the last year, vicious thrash metal legends DESTRUCTION saw many successes, celebrating their 40th anniversary with the release of their impressive latest full-length record, Diabolical. Catapulting you straight into the seventh heaven of metallic bliss, their incredible 15th studio album brings out a heavy artillery full of honest and uncompromising thrash metal – a massacre of razor-sharp sound no fan of the genre should miss!
MEGADETH debuted at the top of the charts with first week sales on new album The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!, taking the No. 3 spot on both the Official UK Album Chart and the US Billboard 200, marking their 8th US Top 10 album of their career, and matching the US chart impact of previous album, the Grammy-winning Dystopia.
Bay area thrash metal giants TESTAMENT unleashed their highly acclaimed thirteenth studio album, Titans Of Creation, via Nuclear Blast in 2020.
Today, TESTAMENT have released the Titans Of Creation Video Album. The limited-edition collectible features performance videos of all the tracks on the record. The footage was compiled at a soundstage in San Francisco, and was edited into music video-style clips, now available on Blu-Ray accompanying the CD with bonus photos and liner notes, plus a button and sticker in a longbox. Staying true to the record, the performances feature Gene Hoglan behind the kit! This version is limited to 6,500 units worldwide.
Thrash metal legends Megadeth return with their sixteenth album, ‘The Sick, the Dying… and the Dead!’ which is the follow-up to 2016’s ‘Dystopia’. This album marks the longest gap between releases for the band and the first album to feature drummer Dirk Verbeuren and bassist Steve Di Giorgio from Testament following David Ellefson’s dismissal last year. Steve re-recorded Dave’s bass parts, but he is not their new bassist; he just featured on the album. The new permanent bass player is James LoMenzo, who was previously in the band between 2006-2010 and rejoined fully this year. For guitarist Kiko Loureiro it is his second album with the band.
