Thrash Metal




He’s back! The suicidal maniac! Crossover thrash legends Suicidal Tendencies are coming to town this summer. Their eponymous 1983 debut started a revolution by combining hardcore verses with slower thrash choruses. ‘Suicidal Tendencies’ jumpstarted their career but on ‘Join the Army’ (1987) and ‘How Will I Laugh Tomorrow When I Can’t Even Smile Today’ (1988) they gravitated towards a thrashier overall sound although the hardcore roots remained palpable. Now fast-forward to 2016, with the hiring of three new band members including legendary ex-Slayer skinsman Dave Lombardo, and the release of ‘World Gone Mad’. Expect political lyrics, Mike ‘Cyco Miko’ Muir’s inimitable delivery, ripping solos and great leads, catchy bass lines and to top it all off, Lombardo’s punk-inspired style that adds a dimension to the music that early fans will definitely appreciate. They’ve been racking up rave reviews so don’t miss out! (#GMM17)
