"Back from the snow! So this is it. Thrashfest 2010 has reached its end and after a difficult journey back home, we have returned to our base loaded with memories of a tour which proved to be the strongest of our career so far!

"Kreator, Exodus and Death Angel, along with us, formed an explosive package that toured around Europe for 24 days, bringing chaos to every city and selling out every show in the best of venues.

"A great honor for us to share the same stage with all these bands and receive thrash lessons every night, looking forward to the moment that we'll meet again on the road! Many thanks to all the crew of the tour that helped us along the way! Thank you David, Pit, Thilo, Gump, Julie, Thomas, Stony, Simon, Merlin, Margarida, Tibo, for giving your best and 100% of what you've got to bring this mission through!

"This tour, these sold out gigs, and the endless after-show parties will never be forgotten... Only way such thing could happen, is by joining new ones! We want to thank all the fans that moshed for us, screamed their lungs out for us, buying ALL our merch and filling the venues even though we were the opening band. Can't wait to see you all in March on our next European tour with Death Angel. Cheers to everyone out there!"

Kreator with Voivod at The Bottom Lounge

Thrash is back. After dying off in the 1990s and returning in the mid-2000s it's finally returned, with four of five bands playing coming from metal's most headbangable genre.
