Heathen are a good band too Dave. Breaking The Silence is an excellent thrash metal record.

I shall have to check them out. Im more into the old school thrash than this "new wave" stuff. Gamma Bomb are alright though.

Heathen are an old school band. Lee Altus from Exodus is one of the guitarists. It was his main band before he joined Exodus and he does both now. Well worth checking out. Do you know Hirax? I've been messaging Katon to come to the UK for years!

I don't I'll be going to any to be honest due to money and such. If I did though it would either be Birmingham, Bristol or the hallowed grounds of Shepherds Bush.

No one knows yet Stick Man but someone will put it up here as soon as anyone hears an unreliable rumor from some random stoned and p***ed person.
