The 10 Greatest Thrash Releases Of 2015
2015 saw thrashing rage come of age once again!
6. Acid Reign – Plan Of The Damned (Single)
Must hear track: “Plan Of The Damned”….obviously!
We were careful not to call this feature the 10 greatest thrash ‘albums’ of 2015 for good reason, as to ignore the return of Acid Reign and their first ‘release’ in over two and a half decades would have been sacrilege!
That release came in the comely shape of brand new single “Plan Of The Damned” and it’s relatively unexpected arrival was a joyous occasion to behold; one that prompted involuntary square-dancing amongst the UK thrash faithful and beyond.
With frontman ‘H’ commanding his newly assembled legion of metal veterans, any concerns that Acid Reign’s sound may have become somewhat diluted over the years were quickly confounded. “Plan Of The Damned” satisfyingly picked up exactly where Acid Reign’s unsung classic Obnoxious left off as if the last quarter of a century had passed by in only 25 minutes!
Kicking off as a Sabbth-esque exercise in elephantine riffing before segueing into an all-out Thrash-fest, the timing of Acid Reign’s return was instantly vindicated and more than whets the appetite for the full-length album we pray is in the works.
Welcome home boys!
