Today (January 26) is Australia Day. According to Wikipedia, it “marks the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British Ships at Sydney Cove, New South Wales, and raising of the Flag of Great Britain at that site by Governor Arthur Phillip”. In the UK, this means loads of pubs put on extra drink offers on crappy lager in order to entice the nearby Australian ex-pat community into the pub. At Thrash Hits, it represents something we can hang a themed Sunday Spotify Slaylist off.
The Berzerker was an extreme metal band from Melbourne, Australia. The band's music, heavily influenced by older death metal and grindcore, can be characterised as a fusion of these with industrial metal, speedcore, and gabba. The band's founding member Luke Kenny describes the band's style as industrial death metal.
The Berzerker has produced five full length albums, The Berzerker (2000), Dissimulate (2002), World of Lies (2005), Animosity (2007) and The Reawakening (2008). Read more on Last.fm
