This week’s heavy metal history lesson flashes back thirty years to 1986, as thrash peak reached a creative peak and smashed through the commercial boundaries to take over the larger metal world. Join us for a recap of the maturing Metallica, Slayer, and Megadeth; the newcomers Nuclear Assault, Dark Angel, and Whiplash; and the very early seeds of rising death and black metal in Kreator, Sodom, Sepultura, and Sacrifice. Know your Roots!
For the view of the rise during the early 1980s of Metallica, Megadeth, and Slayer, pick up the essential photo book MURDER IN THE FRONT ROW: Shots From the Bay Area Thrash Metal Epicenter, by Harald Oimoen and Brian Lew.
