Fjordhammer Friday (30th October 2020)
At long last, the night before my favourite holiday that isn't Yule! Samhain is a special time of year where the lines between this world and the next blur and we can feel the presence of our relatives more strongly or attract a demon, depends if you mess around with the occult stuff at this time of year. Anyway, whilst everyone is getting spooky, my mind wanders onto a Zombie Apocalypse for some strange reason, probably a sign of the times as it feels like the apocalypse, so why no raise the dead? Of course, we can't chill out with things that are trying to eat our brains, so this week I'm ramping up the speed and bringing the chainsaw, this week we're looking at thrash metal! Me and thrash have had a chequered past, but as I started going to the gym more I need something that would hype me up and keep the energy flowing, and apart from hardcore/beatdown, thrash was the only other option at the time. The intensity and crushingly fast rhythms and riffs gets you going no problem. I also got into thrash because I said to myself that I can't fully enjoy black metal without some sort of understanding about thrash. Anyway, time to cut the story and get head banging, here are this week's top underground picks for thrash!
