Poll: What Was The Best Year For Thrash Metal 1983-1991?

Since it’s pretty clear many of us (including me) are living in the past (rightfully so)…what is your favorite year for Thrash Metal? You can choose from 1983-1991. Personally, I’m going to have to choose 1986 with classic such as Pleasure To Kill, Darkness Descends and Reign In Blood pulling much of the weight, but what is your pick?

Grim Reaper: Where Are They Now?

  • In a recent interview Steve Grimmett said, “”We have a date of February 19, 2019, (original date was in October 2018) we had to move the date forward because we could not deliver the album on time and neither could the record label. February 19 will gives us a little bit more time to get things done. We have recorded all the guitars, all the drums I have started the vocals, when we get back from the tour I will be doing vocals and bass. it should be done in the next month.””
  • Guitarist Nick Bowcott is a rep for Marshall Amps.
  • Nick Bowcott spoke at Jeff Hannaman’s funeral.
  • Just having the word “hell” in an album title tied Grim Reaper up in lawsuits with their label from 1987 to 1988.
  • Steve Grimmett was in thrash metal band Onslaught. Strangely enough, Onslaught’s first album was “Power From Hell“.
  • The band broke up in 2008.
  • The band re-formed and started work on a new studio album tentatively titled “From Hell” (not joking)
  • In 2017, after collapsing at a show from a leg infection, Steve Grimmett went into surgery. As a result, he had to have a potion of his leg aputated.

Anvil: Were They The First Thrash Band?

Anvil: Were They The First Thrash Band?

Way back a long time ago, before Anvil was best known for a movie made about them: Anvil was in a tremendously influential, “proto-thrash” band. Musicians like Lemmy, Slash, Scott Ian and Lars Ulich considered them to be a big influence.

While Anvil’s sound was more of traditional heavy metal, they did play louder and faster than most bands did at the time.
