Over 700 metal fans turned out for the Thrash Against Cancer benefit on July 9 at the Pound amphitheatre in San Francisco. Bands playing the benfit included: TESTAMENT, HIRAX, LAAZ ROCKIT, VICIOUS RUMORS, MUDFACE, AGENT STEEL, IMAGIKA, DEKAPITATOR, KAOS, BROCAS HELM, RIGHTEOUS SIRE, HANGAR 18, NEIL TURBIN'S DEATHRIDERS (featuring original ANTHRAX vocalist Neil Turbin), DREAMS OF DAMNATION (featuring former DARK ANGEL guitarist Jim Durkin), ANGER AS ART, MYSTIC RAGE.

Keith Regan, whose family is one of the recipients of the proceeds from the show, was extremely pleased with how the event turned out. “The crew from TAC deserves the utmost respect and praise from my family and everyone who decided to attend the show, “ Regan said. “They were instrumental in every aspect of the behind the scenes and made the day go as smooth as it could be. The show it self was incredible! All the people that approached us had nothing but high praise to say about every band!” Regan is looking into organizing another Thrash Against Cancer show next year, possibly involving different genres of music, in order to raise money for families with children who have pediatric cancer.

testament is over rated and people who compare them to the likes of pantera and slayer should be mauled by a bear.

Hey dumb f***, testament is too great a band words can't even describe them. Slayer has blown a$$ since '94, and pantera is old news. Then again you're probably one of those sh**heads who thinks everything that was once influential still kicks ass.
