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...

Riddle me this, riddle me that, why the fuck did the Metal-Archives remove Beowülf from the entries? I mean, they still have Excel and Beyond Possession and those two lay way more on the punk side of crossover. Who the fuck knows with those ass backwards elitist fuckwads that also removed Toxic Narcotic but host numerous amounts of (insert buzzword)-core bands on there. Well we’re not here to discuss the actual amount of metal required in the equation to be considered...

  Coming from a skullcrushing crust punk sound in their early music, Onslaught’s The Force is a refined, epic, thrash, masterpiece.Onslaught, much like Sacrilege, started off as a hardcore/crusty punk band and evolved into a brilliant thrash band. Unlike their debut album Power From Hell (a very under rated and ripped off constantly album) which was a raw crusty thrash album, Onslaught sewed together elements of the bay area thrash scene and Iron Maiden stylised...

    If you claim you are a fan of early Sepultura you need to know Morbid Visions, and everything else before Chaos A.D. Before switching vocalists, before being Nü-Metal, before being “Post-Thrash”, Sepultura was Sepultura. Sepultura is Portuguese for evil, fast, and heavy. There is absolutely no doubt that Arise and Beneath the Remains are thrash while Schizophrenia is an influential death thrash album but what is Morbid Visions? In my opinion.....

Let’s get one thing clear right now, what the term hardcore means nowadays is so loose. This ain’t no scene kid post-hardcore BULLSHIT, this isn’t a fucking eerie note, breakdown, chug along, slit my wrists album, this is some pure, original, New York hardcore punk that’s all thrashed out, this is the mother fucking CRO-MAGS! and if you don’t know Cro-Mags, well you gotta know! While hardcore punk existed from the late 70’s starting with...
