BLEED THE FREAKS
“All Is Lost”
()
After having discovered the big four it was time to move on to newer and perhaps better things. And what better place was there in the 80s for thrash than the Bay Area. Bands like TESTAMENT, DEATH ANGEL, EXODUS and a handful of others changed my view on extreme metal. To this day I keep returning to the earlier albums by these bands. To call this hardrock is to do the band a great injustice. This has more in common with the Bay Area thrash that we saw in the wake of Testament and Death Angel. There is an edge to this that. This is the kind of metal that I spun day and night in the 80s/early 90s. Metal that followed in the tracks of Exodus monumental thrash. Metal that competed with Testament for the throne as thrash kings to be. Cool stuff all the way through. Anders Ekdahl
