Satan - Court In The Act

It’s no big secret that the uprising Thrash movement – back in the early 80s – had enough to lend (as every other Metal genre) from the unparalleled New Wave Of British Heavy Metal phenomenon. Unique British bands and subsequent monumental albums acted as the constituent of entasis (matched by the Punk rage) for lots of bands in e.g. the Bay Area (San Francisco) or California, LA or New York regions in order to have a first flirt with thrashin’ disaster for the world to know from then on.

Samhain - Samhain III - November Coming Fire

There is a lot of discussion about nowadays’ Deathrock / horror Punk bands that pop up like mushrooms after the rain, originating from countries of Southern Europe and of course the queen of this genre, UK, but lets be frank here; everyone of us has listened to Glenn Danzig’s earlier works, after he had left MISFITS (at least once) or, even worst, danced to one of those out-of-the-blue student party (yup, there were lots of them back in the late 80s/early 90s). So, let’s don’t pretend that we, the genuine metalheads, hate this scene that offered some of the most aggressive moments of that kind of Punk Rock that many described as the precursor to Gothic Punk with the extra occult-like aesthetics.

Heaven's Edge - Heaven's Edge

There were tons of bands emerging from the US in the late 80s, performing the so-called Hair Metal style. Paving the way set by earlier acts of the time such as BON JOVI, DOKKEN, MÖTLEY CRÜE or RATT, the record industry – as in any other genre or fashion – saw the money coming in and thus from Los Angeles to New York city there was hair, perfume and a good time taking over with bands and fans struggling to have their own piece of the action and fun at the same time. Then it was the time of the Grunge explosion in the early 90s and the music collar-man officers showed their teeth to a new musical explosion ready to deliver the $$$ to their thick butts. Hence, many US melodic or sleazy hard Rock outfits left alone shaking after the release of one and only – in most cases – album that was supposed to rock the world…

Paradox - Heresy

Paradox - HeresyIf you, the average Thrash fan, ever decide to dig dipper in this malicious genre’s kist you’ll probably come up with some hidden treasures you never imagined they even existed. Focusing on the German Thrash style in particular, the divine makings of kings such as KREATOR, SODOM and DESTRUCTION certainly left their venomous marks once they were unleashed – talking about the 80s deeds – but there was further quality unseen and obstructed by the loaded Media exposure of the aforementioned rulers. And, yes, fellow maniacs like TANKARD did finally get their share but brutal outfits like DARKNESS, EXUMER or PARADOX had their initial pressings hailed only by some small hordes of dedicated fans. It’s no wonder, though, those original works are highly praised in our days, more than two decades later…
