May thrash never die. When my wife and I visited Switzerland we traversed 6000 ft above ground to Mt.Stanserhorn. Climbing the snow capped Alps we gained a natural perspective like none we’ve ever witnessed before. Later, we took a lake cruise on the clearest and purest waters you can imagine.
Ahhh, Spain. Land of sangria, tapas, flamenco dancing, balmy weather, siestas, and the place where the rain falls mainly on the plain. Oh yeah, and you’ll find some excellent Thrash Metal courtesy of Century Media’s Angelus Apatrida.
If there is a recent band whose name accurately describes what you’re going to hear from them, it is undoubtedly The German Panzer (or Panzer) on their debut Send Them All to Hell from Nuclear Blast. Prepare to be crushed.
We complain about demanding bosses, nagging spouses, and uncomfortable weather. At the end of my “tough” days I still rest my bones on a king size bed next to my gorgeous wife and drift off to sleep with a full belly.
Macbeth killed Banquo, but his real target was Banquo’s son, Fleance. The witches prophesied that Banquo’s sons would form a long line of kings that would rule over Scotland for hundreds of years. Fleance escaped, Macbeth was decapitated, Scotland thrived. In the world of thrash metal, Steve “Zetro” Souza is Banquo with a twist.
Here’s a band you may not have heard from before – I certainly hadn’t prior to Cripper’s album Hyëna, on Metal Blade Records, showing up for review. They do a decent job of mixing old school and modern thrash metal since their inception in 2005.
