Gama Bomb Comments On European Thrashing Like A Maniac Tour

For the past few weeks, Irish thrashers Gama Bomb have been making their way across Europe on the Thrashing Like A Maniac tour with LA shredders Bonded By Blood and UK support act Sworn Amongst, spreading the good word of thrash wherever they go.

The band comments on the tour so far: "So here we are, two weeks into our five-week European tour. We've already come so far and done so much we can't do it justice in a simple, mortal blog, but here goes: we started in Berlin, where we accidentally played to a neo-Nazi biker gang, then we wound through Europe, finding ourselves in the Italian wilderness, high in the Alps and sweltering at the far end of Portugal along the way. It's been very, very hot so far, but we're now encountering a cooler, Northern European leg of the tour."

Along with a night of thrash metal music, Gama Bomb is offering something else to the fans who attend the shows: redemption. Gama Bomb recently announced their Stamp Out Inferior Metal campaign. At each show of the 10,000-mile, eleven-country Thrashing Like A Maniac European tour, Gama Bomb invites and encourages you to bring along the worst of your music collections - 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! Bring them to a show, whereupon they will be ceremoniously smashed, stamped on, frisbee'd and generally destroyed as part of the set, live onstage.
