5. Viking – No Child Left Behind
Viking may have been a relatively obscure entry in the annals of Thrash history but their second album, Man Of Straw, is an under appreciated classic of American Thrash.
Fans have waited a bum-numbing 26 years for a follow up but the wait is finally over.
No Child Left Behind will be unleashed on 4th March 2015 and features the considerable talents of original vocalist and guitarist Ron Eriksen, Dark Angel’s Mike Gonzalez on Bass, Justin Zych (Vindicator) on guitar and scene legend Gene Hoglan (Dark Angel, Testament, Death, SYL) on Drums.
Viking will undoubtedly bring their furious 80’s Thrash to the attention of a new audience in 2015 and it’s a welcome surprise to have new material to devour.
Stay tuned for a Worship Metal review of No Child Left Behind in the near future.
