When it came to the second full day of the first ever Hellfire Festival, Thrash Hits was looking forward to hour upon hour of the cream of young British metal talent tearing up North London like an runaway JCB.

Two artists share this name: a Japanese black/thrash metal and a British thrash metal band.
1) Sabbat is a black/thrash metal band from Japan. It can be said that the story of Sabbat started in 1983 when a band called EVIL consisting of Gezol (bass), Ozny (guitar), Elizaveat (guitar), Valvin (drums) and Toshiya (vocals) was formed.
