Current Release:
‘Temporary Worker (Clause 4.1)’

Despite taking over the 80’s, thrash as a genre died out with the rise of grunge and when Metallica released ‘The Black Album’. Of course, hardcore bands such as Slayer and the like still soldiered on, but would thrash ever regain its 80’s glory?  This question was answered when bands like Evile and Municipal Waste blasted onto the scene. These two bands, and many others like them, proved that thrash was not dead – far from it! The unique thing about the second wave is that thrash no longer took itself seriously. Bands were starting to have fun with their music, and at thrash gigs there was a real party atmosphere and a sense of fun.

A sense of fun and a party atmosphere is exactly what you get with Cornwall-based thrashers ‘Rash Decision’. Formed in 2006, and after performing an impressive 230 gigs, taking part in 10 UK tours and three European tours, ‘Rash Decision’ have been making a hell of a lot of noise on the underground scene. With a punk ‘fuck you’ attitude and the energy of thrash, their debut release ‘Temporary Worker (Clause 4.1)’ makes you want to jump up, swing your t-shirt over your head and jump into the nearest circle pit. Vocalist Dave Decision provides raw, punky vocals reminiscent of ‘Extreme Noise Terror’ and gives their debut that punk-like aggressiveness. The guitar work is spot on, and from opener ‘Railings’ to closing track ‘Giving and Taking (Fuck You)’ punch you in the face with a fist full of thrash. The production on this record is spot on, and really emphasises the potential of these West Country thrashers. Catch these guys live now! You’ll be in for a real treat!

Rating: 4/5
