Lich King - Old School Thrash Metal
In Junior High and High School I was into punk and various indie rock. Metal was okay to me but didn't really grab me, that is until I discovered Thrash! Bands like Anthrax, D.R.I., Motorhead, S.O.D., M.O.D., Overkill, Metallica (Pre-Black Album), Megadeth, Armored Saint, Nuclear Assault etc.... I liked the speed and the aggressive nature of the music of 80's thrash. I'm not a huge fan of a lot of metal today but every once in a while a band really grabs me.
Lich King is one of those bands! I'll admit at first it was about the name, but then after I gave them the chance I discovered that they are every bit as good as the thrash metal of my 80's misspent youth....Check them out!
