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?

I had the pleasure of getting to meet Steve of Steve Grimmett’s aka Grim reaper – he was a fucking awesome guy and a great singer who’s life should be made into a Hollywood movie IMO. The guy is 60 years old, had a leg amputated, still sings metal because it’s the only thing he knows how to do, and can still deliver Ronnie James Dio caliber vocals – saw their show and forgot how many awesome songs the have – including this one.
I got to have drinks with him at The Rainbow Bar and Grill, Los Angeles before the show and he was a super cool guy…we talked about Trump, why Bud Light is the best beer on Earth, how even though getting his leg chapped of sucked, it was cool to see fans line up around the block to donate blood (which 3 eventually did) and how the one album he sang on with Onslaught outsold all of the Grim Repear albums (which was something I didn’t expect)
This is my pick for best metal song of 2019 – I’ll have to admit I hadn’t listened to Darkthrone since “The Cult Is Alive”, so it took me a minute to catch on to this one even though it’s been out for a minute – check it out if you hadn’t already!
Slayer their walking papers regarding Slayer sponsored NASCAR team car. J.J. Yeley’s No. 54 car was scheduled to race earlier this month painted to promote the Slayer Farewell Tour, but that never happened.
I guess Slayer wasn’t Redneck enough, because the team pulled the plug on the Slayer sponsorship in favor of PODS.
The team was not clear about the decision to forgo the Slayer sponsorship and only released this tweet.
I’m sure; the decision had much to do with protecting the right-wing Cristian bureaucracy of the sport. Slayer has been saying since the mid-eighties that they were not Satanists. Tom Araya even identifies himself as a Christian, but no, Slayer is still too terrifying for NASCAR fans.
Ironically, NASCAR has no problem with sponsoring a Kid Rock car, even though his lyrics gloried pimping, cocaine, homophobia and smacking women, but a little fo-fu Satanism is a bit too much!!
Nothing too complicated here…Slayer live at Monsters Of Rock Castle Donnington 1992
