Each week I listen to lots and lots of songs I then select the best and post them here. In summary: listen to this mix if you like LOUD, obscure and heavy tunes which you'll never, ever hear on The X-Factor. There may be the occasional digression into experimental, alternative or electronic genres; just to keep things interesting.
This weeks theme is Thrash Metal, some of the "younger" or perhaps upcoming bands. Thrash metal (sometimes referred to simply as thrash) is a subgenre of heavy metal music, one of the extreme metal subgenres that is characterised by high speed riffing and aggression. Thrash metal songs typically use fast, percussive and low-register guitar riffs, overlaid with shredding-style lead work. Thrash metal lyrics also often deal with social issues using visceral and blunt language, an approach which partially overlaps with the hardcore genre.
Thrash was the first sort of music I really liked and there seems to be a resurgence in recent years.
