After 30+ years and 17 albums, you might think a band would begin to sound stale and lose some of that hunger they had when they were but young punks in Jersey. You’d also be wrong when it comes to Thrash Metal titans Overkill.
I had the chance to catch Megadeth for the fourth time as well as up-and-comers, Chicago’s own Diamond Plate at The Venue in Hammond, IN on Megadeth’s short, smallish tour of NA prior to bigger adventures overseas.
Today’s album review is from a band inspired by bands such as, Soilwork, Pantera, Machine Head and old school Slipknot. From Italy, Modern Thrashers, Sawthis have released their third album titled, Youniverse. The album is based around the concept of multiple-personality disorders.
A first for me, and probably many of you international metalheads out there, today we take a little trip over to India. India you say? Yes, for a Death and Thrash outfit by the name of Halahkuh have released their EP titled, Desecration. Immensely heavy and rapid tracks are what they deliver to the metal world.
Lets cut to the obvious question at hand: Why is MUTANK the featured band this week? 1 – they recently won the Canadian finals for the International Wacken Metal Battle. MUTANK will be heading overseas to show the metal world what Canada has to offer.
Today brings a heavier, thrashier case here at WeLoveMetal. A bit closer to home, from Charleston, South Carolina, Melodic Death and Thrash quartet, Centura, self released their debut EP titled, Amerigeddon. According to the band, they are sick and tired of our Sh*tty Government and our Sh*itty system, so what more to do than to get angry with them?
The first half of 2014 has passed and gone and there has been an overwhelming amount of metal that has been released. We’ve seen major releases from just about every genre of metal out there. Some average and so so, to outstanding and explosive.
Last year I reviewed two novels in the Eviscerated Panda series, by Sarah Tipper. These two books, A Metal Tale and Back in Bamboo, tell the story of a heavy metal/thrash band called Eviscerated Panda.
From East Germany, Black Metal thrashers, Nocturnal Witch, recently released their latest creation via Undercover/Evil Spell Records, titled, Summoning Hell. Just over a half hour long, this album distinctly is rich in old school thrash elements blended with Black Metal tones. The production in the album is well done, with perfectly executed raw sound.
