So, “nu-thrash” is dead then? It seems so and not before time really – as a notorious grump and long-time thrasher myself, the majority of the latter-day neon-and-bandanas “party thrash” contingent got right on my norks.

But thrash’s new wave has its detractors as well – we’ve all got plenty of Slayer and Exodus records by now, and accusations that some of the latest clutch of shredders haven’t necessarily done much that’s genuinely new or distinct have some merit, including some from right here. Have Evile finally managed to record an album to shut those dissenting voices up?
