Gama Bomb Declares War On "Inferior Metal"
Irish thrashers Gama Bomb has come up with a unique idea for their upcoming "Thrashing Like A Maniac" tour with Bonded By Blood and Sworn Amongst.
Singer Philly Byrne explains: "The right to listen to neck-snapping turbo-charged metal is under threat. Gloomy, posey, idiotic metal stands between us and true enjoyment of thrash. We're all guilty of having bought some rubbish, not-quite-up-to-the-mark "metal" records at some point in our lives, but it’s time to root out those embarrassing t-shirts and albums and posters – because GAMA BOMB are offering YOU a chance to wipe the slate clean."
Starting at their first show on September 12th in Germany and running through each and every stop of the 10,000-mile, eleven-country tour, GAMA BOMB invite and encourage you to bring along the worst of your music collection – the embarrassing, the awkward and the downright rubbish CDs, records and merchandise hidden amongst your better purchases – and to collect them together so both you and GAMA BOMB can do what should have been done long ago – ritually shred, stamp and smash the living hell out of them!
The band will destroy the CDs and other paraphenalia onstage as part of their act and to start the process, Earache Records themselves will donate a thousand copies of "Planets" by Adema to the festivities.
