CROSS EXAMINATION Still Ain't Nothin' To F@$% With!!

You guys know Cross Examination, right? The awesome party squad has been tearing things up for years destroying everything and everyone that gets in their way. However since the band released their second full length album, Menace II Sobriety, way back in 2008 things on the Cross Exam front have been pretty quiet. Sure the band has continued to perform shows in and around their home town of Saint Louis, but other than the occasional gig, nothing. Cross Examination have been quiet for so long I couldn't help but wonder if the band was ever going to release a new album.
All my worries and doubts regarding a new Cross Examination album vanished this past week as the band not only announced the release of a new EP this Summer, but also gave fans something they've been wanting for a long, long time. A BRAND NEW STUDIO TRACK!

Opposite Day, the first track off the band's upcoming Dawn of the Dude EP is everything fans of Cross Examination have come to expect from the band. To put it simply it's a high octane thrill ride featuring killer riffs, a bitchin' solo and some damn good lyrics. It's a must hear for fans of killer crossover and proves that Cross Examination still ain't nothin' to fuck with!

Listen to Opposite Day below and look for Dawn of the Dude this July. I'll do my best to keep you all up-to-date on any new details regarding the EPs release but if you're looking for up to the minute information your best bet is to follow the band on Facebook.

First Bands For FULL THRASH ASSAULT 2015 Announced.

For those of you who don't know, Full Thrash Assault is an independent all day festival that takes place every year in the UK. For close to a decade Full Thrash Assault has provided a stage for the best and brightest up and coming thrash bands the UK has to offer, and as we all know by now - there are a lot of killer thrash bands in the UK.

As some of you may know, Global Thrash Assault was asked to sponsor the Full Thrash Assault festival this past year (2014) by the man behind the festival, Mr. Dave Ingram. Of course I agreed, in fact I was honored to be asked. I tried my best to make it to this years festivities (which took place this past Saturday, April 12th) however things didn't work out like I had hoped they would. Other than me not being there I'm told everything with the annual thrash metal meeting went great. All the bands killed and fans from across the country had a great time.

Although I'm still disappointed I wasn't able to attend the 2014 edition of Full Thrash Assault, Global Thrash Assault is once again sponsoring the show next year so I'm hoping to make the trip across the pond (so sorry) in 2015 to enjoy a fantastic day of UK thrash metal. Hopefully things work out this time because the line-up for next year's show is looking pretty damn good.

Mark your calendars ladies and gentlemen because on April 18th Full Thrash Assault 2015 is going down at the Snooty Fox in Wakefield! As if a one year notice wasn't enough to get you to the show then this line-up most certainly will.

Confirmed bands for Full Thrash Assault 2015 so far:

Abadden
Incinery
Thrashist Regime
Risen Prophecy
Synaptik
Terebos
Exterminus

Damn. And to think the headliners are still to be announced.

Be sure to join the official Full Thrash Assault 2015 event page on Facebook for up-to-the-minute information regarding the festival. Hope to see you all there!


SEPREVATION To Release Debut Album, CONSUMED, This May!!

Some of you may know the UK deathrashers Seprevation from Wreck Your Neck: Volume 1. A lot of you probably know the band because these Bristol natives may just be one of the hardest working bands in the underground today. Seprevation has only been around since 2011 and has already managed to accumulate an impressive list of accomplishments including the release of last years phenomenal Ritual Abuse EP and subsequent tour the UK in support of the legendary gore masters, Exhumed.

Less than a year later and Seprevation are hard at work again this time gearing up for the release of their debut album, Consumed. The ten track album - which is set for a May 10th release - was recorded at 16th Cellar Studios in Rome, Italy with legendary producer Stefano Morabito (Fleshgod Apocalypse, Hour of Penance, Eyeconolast, Acrania, Bloodshot Dawn).

Comments guitarist Joss Farrington:

I think fans of 'Ritual Abuse' will really like it (Consumed), its more of the same in many ways, plenty of shred and old-school worship but its definitely steering in our own direction, as the writing process went on the songs became more and more diverse, songs like 'Between Two Worlds' and 'Dreams' were written last and you can really hear the difference.

The artwork for Consumed was done by Raul Gonzalez who also created the art for Seprevation's debut EP, Ritual Abuse. Regarding the albums artwork Farrington had this to say:

I suppose if there were a concept or theme, it would be about death, and all the bullshit that follows with it, depression, loss, escape, etc. The idea of being consumed by something you cannot control.



Consumed Track Listing:

01. Divine Devastation
02. Servants of Suffering
03. Ascension of Agony
04. Sarcophagel Chamber
05. Dreams
06. Slave To The Grave
07. In Torment They Burn
08. Sea of Thoughts
09. Postmortem Lividity 
10. Between Two Worlds

Consumed is now available for pre-order at this location.

Mid-west Tech-Thrashers, TESTIMONY Release New Track!!

Testimony are not only one of the first bands to be featured on Global Thrash Assault, they're easily one of my favorite bands I've discovered since starting this site over two years ago. It seems like everything the band releases is pure gold. Don't believe me? Allow me to list them off for you then:

The band's debut EP, Transcending Reality - GOLD
The band's artwork for their upcoming The Beast That Prays EP - GOLD
Spectral Thoughts, the first track off the bands previously mentioned upcoming EP - GOLD

See a pattern? IT'S ALL GOLD! 

Guess what? This spectacular pattern continues as the band has released yet another killer track off their upcoming, The Beast That Prays EP

Suffer For Salvation is yet another spectacular track from Testimony. Fantastic riffs, a mind boggling solo, killer drumming and some damn fine finger plucking by bassist Derek Lambacher are just some of the highlights of this near six minute track. The put it simply the latest track from Testimony is...GOLD!

When you're done listening to this golden track below, be sure to check out the band on Facebook and Twitter.
