Classic Thrash Metal

Last night an amazing tour made a stop in town and thrash metal was the choice dish served up. Finally I got to see Forbidden after years of missing them along with new comers Evile out of England. Both bands killed it, but the headliner brought a stadium show to which will go down as one of the best sets I have seen in quite a while. The legendary Overkill stole the show and deservedly so. Their brand of Jersey thrash metal has been going strong for over 25 years and I was sure as hell stoked to hear Hello From The Gutter, brought me back a few years before hardcore and punk became my mainstay. Here are three choice cuts from the bands, as it was truly a great night of pure thrash metal.
