The Killchain Presents: Obscure German Thrash night

The 3rd of February’s Killchain Hour on Live Funeral Radio is brought, by way of a conversation with one of the fellow hosts, to you by the power of German thrash. Germans do thrash very well; arguably America’s Big Four are easily matched (and sometimes bettered) by the Teutonic Three. In fact, you’re more likely to find me listening to Kreator, Sodom or Destruction these days when it comes to fulfil a need for some serious necksnapping action.

But, a confession for me first. A long time ago, on an internet connection far far away, I torrented a MASSIVE file of German thrash records. I know, it was terrible of me. But this was before pretty much any ancient metal record was available on streaming sites or YouTube. A lot of these records are now long out of print and almost impossible to get a hold of in any form now, but that’s not to say I haven’t tried! Anyway, this is where my thing for German thrash came from. There were so many late 80s bands doing thrash fantastically well, and most have disappeared. So I’m doing a thrash revival night for our Germanic friends on the Killchain Hour. Cause who brings better riffs than German thrashers anyway!?

Check out the playlist on Live Funeral Radio’s Facebook page, and tune in at 10pm GMT to get thrashed.
