Fist Of Satan Podcast – Episode 4 – Underrated 80s Thrash

Thrash, like death metal, was an important part of my extreme metal journey!

Growing up in eastern Canada in the late 80s/early 90s there was no internet or even a scene to help discover new music.

Our only exposure to new bands was Much Music’s ‘The Power Hour’!

I never had cable tv but my best friend did so every Thursday night he would tape “The Power Hour”.

As soon as the show was done I would call him and ask “Did they play anything thrash?”. I then had to wait until Saturday when he would loan me the tape.

It was through The Power Hour we learned about bands like Death Angel, Sacred Reich and Overkill.

Those well known bands lead to zines and tape trading and I discovered lesser known gems. It’s those underrated bands I focus on with this podcast.
