After 13 years of performances and with their sixth album, Anger as Art prove that thrash will never cease. Fast As Fuck! is their first live album featuring 16 tracks, three of which are new studio cuts, including a cover of “Matriarch” by Montrose. It is done very well, I might add.

Album Review: Triple Kill, “Age Of Rebellion”

Melbourne, Australia metallers Triple Kill are releasing Age of Rebellion, an album that delivers classic thrash metal.
