Derrick Green of Sepultura “There needs to be some type of balance between humanity and technology”

When Derrick Green entered the turbulent world of Sepultura back in 1998, the shit splatter from the fan was still very much pungent in the air. Earning it’s place up there as one of metal’s worst feuds that nigh on equals that of the Dave Mustaine Metallica bootin’ incident of ’83, the departure of Max Cavalera was not only a ...

Sepultura/ Obscura/ Goatwhore/ Fit For An Autopsy @ The Fleece, Bristol

One thing’s for sure, Fit For An Autopsy won’t be someone’s little opening bitch this evening. Despite all the deathcore wannabes we’ve had to wade knee high to get through, the strongest of these bands are now showing their true colour.

Review: Inferno – Genética Humana

Thrash metal, it’s sad to say, has had its day in the sun. With the exception of a few contemporaries – Havok being the prime example – the genre is frankly, on its arse. Though Megadeth’s 2012 release, Endgame, was a stunning return to form, the list of great modern thrash records is sparse. Testament, Metallica and Kreator have all ...

Live: Testament, Brooklyn Bowl, London

The typical nightmare of the London rush hour, British weather bringing torrents of rain and flooding, and then the break down of two tube trains on route to the O2 all tried their hardest to dampen the excitement of a unique night with one of thrash metals finest. Testament were in the capital and rather than just a night of ...

Review: Anthrax – For All Kings

Possibly one of the most anticipated releases of the year is soon upon us, and this will be one that will really prove their worth. Back in 2011 saw the release of Worship Music, with the return of Joey Belladonna on vocals which made people nervous. Would Joey still have his voice? Will it be an album to forget? Will they ...

Live Review: Raging Speedhorn, Camden Underworld, London

Friday 27th November has been a chaotic day for me. I went into London bright and early to go to Winter Wonderland, to drink some viking blood and enjoy the Christmas spirit. I then arrived in Camden at around 4:30 and due to some miss-communication the people I had arranged to meet turned up later than I expected, but this ...
