Thunderstick Announces First Show In Thirty Years In Gravesend, Followed By Festival Appearances

On the back of the phenomenally positive reaction to last year’s album the eponymously named Thunderstick hit the stage in July for the first Thunderstick gig in over 30 years. Taking the stage at Gravesend’s infamous rock venue, itself celebrating 40 years of live music, Leo’s Red Lion will host a unique Thunderstick “showcase” gig a week before their performance at A New Day festival, after which the band will do select gigs through until the Autumn culminating at the Hard Rock Hell festival in November. The Gravesend gig will see Thunderstick performing their full festival set coupled with a post-gig Q&A session with Thunderstick creator Barry Graham Purkis and his band-mates.

Thunderstick aka Barry Graham Purkis comments:

“Energy, power, theatrics and outrage have always been present in the Thunderstick shows of old. We will ramp up those components considerably for the forthcoming New-NWOBHM 2018 stage shows. For those who were there first time round in the ‘80s welcome back we have missed you so much. For those about to experience us for the first time prepare yourselves for a journey. Viixen, Lee, Rex, Baz, and Thunderstick will steal your ‘rock ‘n’ roll heart’…”

On returning to this prized venue he reflects:

“The Red Lion in Northfleet has always been a ‘musical basecamp’ for me, both with Samson and with Thunderstick. Iron Maiden have their ‘Cart and Horses’…I have the ‘Red Lion’ Northfleet. Can’t wait to play there this summer.”

Lead vocalist Viixen adds:

“The sky drew dark and low with ominous clouds, the winds shriek, howl, cry, baying wolf like into the black, the first crack of lightening announces the reverberated boom of the overhead Thunder, in the eye of the savage storm thirty years plus in the coming, I will stand centre stage resolute in my ability to control, do not fear I am here for you…”

The Leo’s Red Lion gig will be followed up by a number of festival appearances including A New Day Festival (August 3rd-5th), Hard Rock Hell (November 8th-11th) and Mearfest (November).

Onslaught Posts New Album Update, Announces Bloodstock Set

British thrash metal legends Onslaught has checked in with an update confirming that progress on a new album is well underway, despite recently losing two members and that they will debut a new song during their set at this year’s edition of the Bloodstock Open Air festival. The post reads as follows:

“The countdown to the new Onslaught Album starts now! Songs have been written, demo tracks recorded and the thrashing machine is racing forward at full throttle. With a release date set before the end of 2018 this is shaping up to be Onslaughts most vicious and hard hitting thrash metal attack yet!

“The lead up for the new Onslaught album quite rightly kicks off at the UK’s most mighty and relevant Heavy Metal festival, Bloodstock Open Air! A Powerful and Brutal show is promised along with the world’s debut of a brand new Onslaught track taken from the forthcoming recording on AFM Records.

“Get your mosh on and get in the pit!

“Onslaught have always loved playing the UK’s finest metal festival, Bloodstock, and this year the show is going to be something special indeed! We’ll see you maniacs at the front!

“On another note both Mic and Iain made the decision to leave Onslaught soon after the last tour finished in order to concentrate on their other bands and projects. We’d like to thank them for all of the hard work they put in over the last few years and wish them all the very best.

“So… saying that, the new guys are kicking major amounts of heavy metal backside right now and they will be announced to you all very soon. Believe me, the band has never sounded so aggressive and so focused! We can’t wait to unleash the new reign of violence for you at Bloodstock. It’s going to be epic and very, very explosive!”

Aborted Reveals New Album Title, Release Date And Announces European Tour With Cryptopsy

Belgian deathgrind veterans Aborted has posted a message online revealing the details of their forthcoming new studio album. A post on their official Facebook account reads:

“We have some exciting news to share with you all – as many of you know, we entered the studio to start the recording of our new studio album which will be called “TerrorVision”. Expect nothing less than brutal death metal on the highest level, enriched by the dark melodic twist of our latest EP, “Bathos”. “TerrorVision” is set to be released on September 21, 2018 via Century Media Records. Aborted will return to the death metal clubs of Europe in early November, joined by Cryptopsy, Benighted and Cytotoxin. Do not miss the brutal death metal package in autumn!

Aborted’s vocalist Sven De Caluwe comments on the album and tour:

“So here we are, at it again. We just spent a little over two weeks recording the follow up to Retrogore, entitled TerrorVision at the mighty Kohlekeller Studios in Germany. Tracking is coming to its end, and it’s been a record we poured a ton of work in over the last year or so. This is actually the first record we were able to do full pre-productions for and had Kohle involved in with since the beginning, and let me tell you, the result is there. We all feel very proud and strongly about how this beast is shaping. Get ready for the most ambitious, varied and brutal Aborted record so far. Kohle has been pushing us beyond the limit of what we have ever done and stuff is sounding massive; always a pleasure to have him involved.

“Next to that we can’t be more excited to announce the line-up for our Hell Over Europe II tour. Last time we had a killer package; well this time for the release of TerrorVision I think not only do we have one of the best brutal death metal packages we could put together; but it’s also the most awesome company of friends we could dream to share the road with for a month. Get ready to have your bodies annihilated by our friends of Cryptopsy, Benighted and Cytotoxin next to yours truly of course. This is going to be the party you don’t wanna miss out on, we are ecstatic to share the road with our good friends and hang with you all, see you all out there, PREPARE TO GRIND!!!!!!”
