With the ominous date of 06/06/06 fast approaching some of thrash metal’s finest are heading into the studio! The once mighty, (hopefully to be again! please! please!), ENTOMBED are currently recording “Serpent Saints” to be released on that day. The greatest thrash band of all time SLAYER have also started recording! Dave Lombardo returns for his first recording with the rest of the guys since 1990’s Seasons on the Bus 😉 – and uber producer Rick Rubin is at the helm. Release is expected some time in the Autumn i can’t wait!!! In the meantime the boys will be heading their own festival on a tour of the States, kicking off on… 06/06/06! Last but by no means least is my top band of the moment STRAPPING YOUNG LAD! Yes, the Lad are already working on their follow up to last years ALIEN album! Big Gene says they’ve pretty much got 4 songs under their belt already and they are looking to launch it in July… to be followed by what he describes as a “crazy” touring schedule… please play near here! please play near here!
***Turns off NIN and cranks up the LAD… “ZEEEEeeeeeeennnnnnn!!!!!”***
