While the latest crop of thrash revivalists have released some fine records, with the Big Four tour and the old greats like Exodus, Testament and Overkill back in fine fettle, there’s noticeable problem from examining the records from the new bands. While there are some fine albums, but no one has written a The New Order, a Forbidden Evil or most appropriately a Bonded By Blood. The new generation is still marathon distances behind the bands responsible for those records, and bands like Bonded By Blood still need to convince us this latest movement hasn’t run out of steam.

Yeah, that’s one of the most metal photos ever, right? Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax may well be doing the rounds on the Continent (Poland done, Switzerland next, then Czech Republic probably reviewed RIGHT HERE ON THRASH HITS!!) but if you can’t be arsed flying Ryanair to a miserable European field, you can just watch them in the cinema. Seriously. #SRSLY?

  • The world is currently experiencing difficult times… is this the perfect moment for a Rammstein to re-emerge?
  • Richard Kruspe: “My feeling is that in difficult or uncertain times, when jobs are harder to come by and money is tight, people are quite open to music, to entertainment in general, so actually it’s a good time to be putting out a new record.”
    Paul Landers: “There are certain moments when it’s comforting to have something to rely on, something that won’t let you down, and we hope that Rammstein is that immovable object…”
