    Never listened to the group simply because their name sounds so cheesy.

    So was their first album, lyrically anyway. Good thrash music though. They kind of remind me of early Metallica, but with cheesier lyrics.

    They're no Testament, that's for sure, but I wouldn't call them a fail. Musically, they play some pretty solid thrash, which we can always use more of. If they can mature lyrically, they might still have something to offer the metal world.

    Thrash is one of those genres that tires me after a while. I can enjoy music that incorporates elements of Thrash but not Thrash in its purest form too much.

    For me, there is nothing like a good thrash album. To each is own. If we all liked exactly the same stuff, the world would be a pretty boring place.

    Evile are an excellent band. I love thrash. For the entire time I've been into metal up until the last year or so, I have totally overlooked thrash. I first listened to bands like Kreator and Sodom, which didn't really appeal to me; I was more into things which were written to perfection or at least well thought out. Now I can't get enough, I love Sodom and Kreator for what they are. Thrash is simple and that's what I find enjoyable.

    My top five albums of this year so far (not in any order):

    Lamb of God
    Lazarus AD
    DevilDriver
    The Black League
    Novembers Doom

    I'm not aware of too many big releases besides Slayer between now and the end of the year, so unless a smaller band surprises, there may not be too many changes to that list. I know a lot of critics are going to have Mastodon on that list, but I find their music kind of boring and overrated. The Lazarus AD may need an asterix beside it, because technically the album was released a few years ago on a tiny label, and is only now seeing the light of day having been re-done and released on a bigger label. I would definitely recommend checking it out regardless.

    What gets me about Thrash is how little experimenting I've found in it. While there are definitely unique sounding bands, I can't seem to find out of the ordinary elements worked into it.

    But that's not the point lol. Thrash is ment to be simplistic.

    That's precisely why Thrash can't always do it for me. :p

    It was a blast. A blast that spilled over into a Motorhead concert last night, and I'm going on a week of not enough sleep. Hopefully tonight...
