War Is My Shepherd

Just home from my jaunt 60 miles south to the Asylum in Birmingham for a master class in thrash metal or a lesson in violence, if you will.

It is ridiculously scary just how good some of these “old” bands are at this moment in time, many are now entering their third decade. Thrash metal, like whiskey, certainly does get better with age and tonight’s 90 minutes of good friendly violent fun proves it yet again.

They may be missing mainstay Gary Holt who’s moonlighting with Slayer on the other side of the Atlantic, but fellow six stringer Kragen Lum from Bay Area neighbours Heathen is proving again to be a more than worthy stand in.
