Birthed in the mid 2000's, Colorado's Havok under normal circumstances would have had their work cut out for them in their quest to make themselves future stalwarts of thrash metal. You'll remember that as we were reaching the middle of the naughties, Nu Metal had arguably already peaked - and the new wave of American heavy metal was in full swing. The likes of Lamb Of GodKillswitch Engage, Machine Head, and Devildriver had charged through...

Though when it comes to size and appeal, thrash metal reached its cultural peak in the 80's, it's bands like Municipal Waste, Revocation, Power Trip, and Havok that have kept the genres modern day heart rate from flat lining. Generally sticking to the classic blueprint left for them: Denver four piece Havok have always took nods at the Mount Rushmore of thrash, but never quite been an outright carbon copy of their fore fathers. Their breakout rec...

Ahead of their tour that's set to savage its way across Europe this spring, Lamb Of God riff master Mark Morton and Kreator vocalist/guitarist Mille Petrozza sat with BBC Radio 1's Daniel Carter to discuss their first exposure to heavy metal.

Though this is merely one of many trailers before the full video is unleashed - it's a fascinating look into which bands specifically captured the two, and how they've gone to be influenced by...

Taking the thrash metal scene in their stride, Swansea based quintet Helldown have been extremely quiet since 2016’s self-titled demo. Having previously being hailed as the new wave of British thrash, it’s clear that there’s a huge precedent to be set by the band. Needless to say, new EP, In Deaths Hands, is a relentlessly aggressive ode to old school thrash metal. Comprising of 4 singles, this EP takes clear influence from the greats; channellin...

The metal scene is rife with both artists trying to push genre boundaries and those who bring a more tried and tested sound to the table. At times this can leave listeners longing for the best of both worlds: a sound perfected with modern technique, production and finesse. Texas 3 piece The Scourge have had their shot at this with Warrant for Execution, and it's a well aimed shot at that. 

Thrash revival has brought a slew of great bands over...

There are many frequencies that have comprised the spectrum of Metal throughout the years, some fading away and others proving persistent. Few have had the longevity of Thrash, with bands like Evile, Gama Bomb, Municipal Waste and Power Trip providing some excellent contemporary contributions throughout the last decade. Motive are here to remind you that Thrash Metal is still very much alive and seeking to invade our airwaves. Fight the World is...

For a band only just releasing their debut EP, Birmingham-based Creature already have their ambitions clearly in sight. Hex is the first edition in a trilogy of EPs set to be released over the coming months, with a mission statement to reduce what they dub “inauthenticity” in modern heavy music; stripping back to a sound that steers clear of overproduction, processed guitars, and triggered drums. The eight-minute EP, in their own words, is design...

Flotsam & Jetsam is anything, a slightly underrated Thrash titan delivering the same brand of breakneck Thrash speeds that we would expect to see from the likes of, being the most prime examples, the ‘Big 4’ over the last three decades.

But this in no way meaning that they are unworthy, quite far from it. Since their debut, the Arizona thrashers have consistently delivered. Letting the music speak for itself and their thirteenth offering,...
