1986 – a year almost every Metalhead will, at some point in their life will experience. Responsible for four of Metal’s biggest bands and almost four of the most influential albums in the Metal timeline. Bringing each a different aspect to the aggression that personified Thrash. Slayer took on the more morbid of tendencies with a particularly more visceral religious slant. Opting for more conspiracy theories and the government itself, Megadeth saw more into the military like vein. Anthrax the New York Thrash underdogs went for more of a well rounded if ever slightly crossover approach with their 1987 release Among The Living. Ending with the biggest band of all time Metallica are without a doubt the crowned kings of the big four and deservedly so. Taking on more of an introspective look into subjects ranging from war to inner torments the band simply got it right with (almost) every release.
A metalhead facing up to the dreadful storm to the tune of ‘Raining Blood‘ has gone viral.
Teasing their brand new video last week, Slayer have at last completed the trio of their brutal Repentless series of videos.
The third in the series of videos to be released by Slayer have made its first teaser.
As the saying goes, good things really do come in three’s! Now on our third day at Bloodstock Festival, we woke up bright and early to check out even more of some of the premier talent to come from all over the world at this gathering of grungers, this congregation of Metallers and what better way to kick things off this morning that the haunting stylings of Ghost Bath.
If you were hoping to hear some new Slayer material soon. It’s just not gonna happen.
What could be one of the most stupid mistakes made yet sees a fan spit at the lovely Tom Araya from Slayer.
What a line up.
First Anthrax gives us a video full of inquisitional torture. Now Slayer are jumping on the bandwagon of violence to bring us a bunch of bloody stabby stabby action! NSFW. Just saying.
2015 is no doubt a different picture for all of us to have imagined but for a band as archetypal in the machinations of the metal world as Slayer it represents a significant point in their career. Having tragically lost previous member Jeff Hanneman the future was uncertain, bouncing back this year releasing their highly anticipated album Repentless the band have been back at it. Now thirty years on how exactly do they compare…
Finishing up another fantastic line up we shall see the Thrash Legends headline at this year’s coming Bloodstock Festival.
Having just wrapped up their incredibly diverse Deathcrusher tour, Carcass will be heading over stateside to join Thrash Metal legends.
