Artist: Black RatAlbum: Demo 2017Genre: Black Metal/ ThrashOrigin: CanadaLabel: IndependentYear: 2017 % Discuss this album in the MetalXtreme forum! Blackrat has been around for roughly 5 years. In those 5 years they have refined their sound into a raw black thrash. This 2017 demo is f****** sweet. This reeks of old school. This is some quality black thrash, even if it is just a demo.

Shadow Realm‘s debut self titled EP is a monster that revealed itself to the world last year. With a maddening progressive approach to thrash and not sacrificing aggression is Shadow Realm from Australia. There is nothing that manages to disappoint on this EP. Check out this quick teaser for the album below to get a taste of the steal. Hopefully I can get into contact with this band soon to conduct an interview. The sad news is that the original is sold out, as it was...

I talked about this album last year when it was only available on cassette, I just discovered that this kick ass album hit Spotify recently. I do not know when it hit because I have a copy of the tape… That news is not all. It seems as though Sepulcher also released a CD copy of Mausoleum Tapestry as well. Check out my little write up of Mausoleum Tapestry here, and check out the album below. You need to buy...

Despite Keith Caputo changing his name to Mina Caputo, aka changing his sex in an effort to boost modern audiences to listen to Life of Agony again, back in 1993 Life of Agony was fucking sick! It is really cool that they made a video for the song “Through and Through“. Life of Agony’s legendary debut River Runs Red came out in 1993. The album featured a sound that is still unrivaled today. An original mix of sludgy thrash crossover that made one almost go...

Pestilence is one of the sickest bands to ever exist. The truest masters of Death Thrash, both musically and production wise. Here is a video for their song “Out of the Body” off the kick ass album Consuming Impluse! I did not know this video existed until my buddy Chronolith showed it to me. There is nothing better in excellently produced Death...

Posted by on Oct 10, 2016 in 1986, Essential Albums, S, This Month of Metal, Thrash, USA |

The year was 1986 and the extreme’s of thrash metal were starting to be pushed to higher boundaries. With 2 albums already released, Slayer was already making a huge name for themselves. Though “Hell Awaits” was heavier and darker sounding that its predecessor, the iconic album “Reign in Blood” went even further down the same path, leaving an even bigger, if not the BIGGEST mark on metal history. Though the album is technically considered...
