Ten years after the first sparks of thrash metal’s fiery 2000s-era rebirth, Roots revisits the savage leading edge of progress by post-nuclear pilgrims including Power Trip, Havok, Dust Bolt, Lost Society, Hellbringer, Vektor, Suicidal Angels, Ultra-Violence, and more. The thrash revival has now lasted longer than the original thrash metal era, and the day of reckoning has arrived. Prepare for a total armageddon assault…on Roots!
