6 Under-Appreciated Classics Of German Thrash Metal (Pt 3.)

6 more undervalued classics of German thrash to be devoured!

Continuing in the vein of our under-appreciated UK & U.S. thrash features, Worship Metal now casts its critical eye over 6 more under-appreciated classics of German thrash, the only country to truly rival the U.S in the thrash stakes!

Parts 1 & 2 of our under-appreciated classics of German thrash has already done the rounds. So, here’s Part 3….chock fuckin’ full of more German thrash classics that deserve way more attention!

Risk – The Daily Horror News (1988)

Roll up, roll up, read all about it….daft Germans in excellent speed/thrash shocker!

With a pedigree dating all the way back to 1967(!), Risk took the relatively safe gamble of updating their hard rock/prog rock sound originally finessed when they carried the Faithful Breath moniker and went hell for leather with ‘debut’, The Daily Horror News.

With precise riffing and unruly speed, the raw nature of this obscurity may prove to be a shock to those expecting something a little cleaner from a band who had originally played their trade two decades prior. As it turned out, Risk proved more than adept at out-riffing the majority of their peers and seemed to have thrash flowing through their veins; a more cohesive and intelligent late 80’s speed/thrash album you’d be hard pressed to find.

Ridiculous artwork, cracking album!
