Nobody’s safe on the bloody middle ground between thrash and death metal this week, as host Ian Christe plunges into the savage maelstrom of death/thrash. This forbidden zone between rhythmic, fast-paced thrash metal and dark, brutal death is owned by a handful of bands including Sadus, Slaughter (CA), Massacra, Demolition Hammer, early Sepultura, Hellwitch, Solstice, Pestilence, Carcinogen and others. Join us and feel no remorse as we thrash towards death!
