Thrash is back. And its cooler than ever because the masters have returned. Testament will be touring soon and Anthrax members are making all kids of special appearances. After watching Lars answer some expensive questions, you can read an interview with crust king Rob Miller of Amebix [not thrash, but still has a hefty amount of ownage].
RETURN OF THE THRASH
Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante did not invent the blast beat. duh.
Metallica has another single coming out.
Everyone's starting to get Testament fever
Lamb of God latest debuted at #2 and Chris Cornell's solo album debuted at #10 on the Billboard 200. Meanwhile Chinese Democracy is finally falling out of the top 200. Which reminds me: When the fuck is that train wreck Axl going to grace stadiums all over the country in Betsey Johnson tights again. Not to mention Slash and Izzy's brainwaves synchronise on stage.

FLASHBACK OF THE DAY
Before there was Fred Durst and Eminem, America's favorite angry white boy would go crazy when he heard a cymbal. His era was at a time when MTV allowed musicians to ruin TV sets.
The last time we interviewed Florida's BLACK TIDE, I had just come from doing a lot of Jager shots with DAATH. Needless to say, I spent most of the interview picking on the band asking if they were drunk. Looking back, I regret it, but it made for a hilarious interview. Flash forward to one year later… we are scheduled to do an interview with
guitaristbassist Zach Sandler, and I thought he was going to want to punch me in the face. Luckily, he remembered how tall I was (WHAT!!) and that didn't happen. But what did happen was a pretty funny interview, which you could check out here.

Holy crap. Did you see the routing for BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE's upcoming tour? Their summer package with CANCER BATS, BLEEDING THROUGH, and BLACK TIDE is hitting up some huuuuuge venues. I can't speak for many of the other towns, but the Hammerstien Ballroom in NYC is pretty much the largest venue I could think of in the City with the exception of the Garden. Where did these guys come from? Sure, they've been pretty big in the UK, but they seemingly have exploded here. You guys into them? Should be interesting to see how well it draws. Unfortunately, I will not be able to do any on-the-field reporting for this one…
