ThrashBack Campaign release Special Edition Anthrax Vinyls

Universal Music is celebrating 30 years of Thrash music by re-issuing seminal albums from the founding fathers of this sub-genre for the ThrashBack Campaign. If you haven’t heard of the campaign yet, the lowdown is that it’s a campaign that celebrates Thrash, and offers some very special deals!

The ThrashBack campaign kicked off with the inaugural ‘Wear Your Thrash T-Shirt To Work Day’ on the 6th June 2014. This encouraged thrash fans all over the UK to sport their favorite Thrash band T-shirt and upload the picture through their social media avenues. The hashtag, #ThrashTshirtDay, was used in 226 posts, reaching over 800,000 unique users and generating over 2 million impressions across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Entries came from offices, shops, schools and cafés. Weirder entries came from the job centre, a piercing studio, a radio station, the This Morning Studio and an ambulance station.

Thrash music has generated album sales of over 200,000,000 copies and has been responsible for one of the world’s biggest bands in Metallica. 80’s rock music was dominated by Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax – the so called ‘Big Four’. These bands helped shape the world of heavy music and to this day still have a substantial influence in modern metal music.

Developed in the early 80’s in the U.S, Thrash Metal represents the evolution of the so-called ‘New Wave Of British Heavy Metal’. The bands borrowed the core elements of British Heavy Metal and added aggressive sounds, low-register guitar riffs and fast-tempo melodies. The genre quickly spread worldwide, with European bands such as Celtic Frost & Kreator becoming essential to the scene. Thrash continues to be a strong force in contemporary rock music with a host of new acts emerging all the time.

The Thrashback campaign will feature a wide range of classic albums from key bands including some special edition coloured Anthrax vinyls! Set for release on The 14th July 2014, the vinyls are available exclusively at the ThrashBack store http://po.st/APB8ur
