It’s been more than a decade since Inculter’s inception in a town called Fusa in Norway, and they have delivered two full-lengths and one EP of blistering thrash since. Their third album Morbid Origin will be released next Friday, four years after the excellent Fatal Visions. The band is still comprised of Remi André Nygård..
Well, hell has frozen over and Sadus are back in action with a new album! I have honestly lost hope these death-thrash vets will release something new, but, The Shadow Inside, their first new material in 17 years, will be hitting shelves next Friday. Formed back in 1985 in Antioch, California, Sadus is a household..
Richmond, Virginia’s crossover thrashers Enforced have been around for less than seven years, but we are already awaiting their third full-length album War Remains. As witnessed by Stoyan Tsonev, who had the privilege to hear it early, the album is another tour-de-force of extremity condensed into less than 34 minutes and 10 tracks. It’s an..
Life’s a bitch sometimes, and in the case of Razor’s leader Dave Carlo – much more often than usual. The Canadian trash/speed veterans’ guitar player has bravely and even stubbornly pushed the band forward through hard and harder times in the Eighties, before throwing the towel in the early nineties.

The eternal underdogs of thrash and speed metal and one of the most unlucky bands on earth – that’s what Razor are.

Paradox is one of the classic bands from the German speed-thrash scene, which was even signed by Roadrunner Records for the release of their legendary second album Heresy in 1990, before falling victim to the changing tastes of the big labels. After a decade in oblivion, Paradox returned with the fantastic Collision Course in 2000..
Blood In The Water, the new album by speed thrash legends Flotsam and Jetsam is obviously one of the highlights of 2021 so far, as you have recently read in the Lee Vickers penned review here.
