Sweden’s I Hate Records have just released the "Slaves Of The Burning Pentagram" debut full length by Germany’s old school Thrashers HELLISH CROSSFIRE on CD. The album, which previously was only available on vinyl (also through I Hate), comes with a slightly different (yet of the similar style), improved coverartwork and is highly recommended to fans of VIOLENT FORCE, ASSASSIN, DARKNESS and likeminded 80s German Thrash acts. For a detailed review check out our review section. The label can be contacted at www.ihate.se.
And another re-release: DROWNED‘s latest 4 song demo "Viscera Terræ" will finally see the light of day again via Nuclear Winter Records from Greece. The label has picked up on it and will release this little gem of brutal old school Death Metal the Scandinavian way on a 12" vinyl EP. A more detailed description of the demo can be found in our review section. You may contact the label at www.nuclearwinter.cjb.net
Fans of 80s Speed / Thrash Metal will surely remember Staten Island’s SAVAGE THRUST who made their vinyl debut on the second "Speed Metal Hell" compilation with the track ‘Crown Of Thorns’ (the sampler among others also featured FLOTSAM & JETSAM, AT WAR, POST MORTEM, SAMHAIN (DEN) and ANVIL BITCH). After all these years there’s finally a tribute website dedicated online now, which can be found at www.savagethrust.com. It features lots of vintage pictures, music, videos and of course the necessary historical info, so make sure to check it out.
