This week we’re turning over the Sunday Slaylist to something a little different – we want you to go buy something. On Monday 18 February, Pat Egan, Relapses Records’ Director of Retail Sales, died following a the result of complications with a case of pneumonia. To raise money for Pat’s daughter’s college fund, the folks over at Relapse have gone and put together a compilation of 20 of the finest bands ever to have worked with the label – and we think it’d be a damn fine gesture if a few of our readers joined us in buying it, in recognition of the awesome music Pat helped bring us over the years, as well as to help out the family of a fellow metal fan when they need it most.

We’ve shown you what Raz and Hugh’s albums of the year are, but they’re not the only ones responsible for the Thrash Hits Top 20 Albums of 2011. Oh no. We’ve got a whole load of contributors – writers, photographers, and miscellaneous behind-the-scenes types – that help keep Thrash Hits running smoothly, and the albums they loved the most from 2011 matter just as much as those favoured by the boss men.

Levelling The Plane Of Existence

It is perhaps fitting that Abysmal Dawn’s third record should be released so close to the anniversary of that seminal first Possessed album. That the doomsayers that have been claiming death metal was just a walking corpse simply waiting for the final gory takedown are proving to be so spectacularly wrong is entirely down to bands like this releasing records of this quality.

After his debut Thrash Hits column last month, Metal Mark from SkullsNBones.com is back to tell us what’s been shaking over the pond in Atlanta these last four weeks.
What’s going on metalheads? The past month has been full of shows in Atlanta. Now my wallet is empty, and there is more PBR in my body than water. This month started out with the awesome Summer Slaughter tour at The Masquerade in Atlanta. The tour lineup was insane, with bands like Necrophagist, Suffocation, Dying Fetus, Origin, and Beneath The Massacre destroying the stage.
