There’s a bunch of these super, super heavy bands knocking around at the moment. They call it “crust punk”, “grindcore” and “proto-thrash” but it’s inspired by the furious punk metal of Discharge and the classic death metal of Entombed. Featuring members of Converge and The Hope Conspiracy, All Pigs Must Die are certainly one of them. Unsurprisingly, God Is War is a great reason for this effort in brutality to exist.

We are massive fans of alliteration here at Thrash Hits. That’s why I was given the latest Roadrunner Records band, Revoker’s new album Revenge For The Ruthless to review. I’ll be well pissed off if my laptop keyboard runs out of Rs by the end of this Rticle. Yeah, punch me now. Please.

The three albums that precede Union Black have showcased how innovative this Welsh quartet can be, though never quite captured the absolute intensity of what they are capable of. After years of touring and proving their worth to the masses, will this be the record that does them justice?

The so-called thrash revival may have seen Metallica bringing metal back to the masses with stadium-filling ease last year but they’re not the only one doing it. German stalwarts Kreator may not be headlining arenas anywhere but Hordes Of Chaos delivers a more classic and raw-sounding package.
