In 2015, the band signed to Xtreem Music and released a new EP entitled "Vengeance of Fire". Thrashfire have played with bands such as Destruction, Artillery, Rumble Militia, Venom Inc, as well as numerous shows within Turkey and a mini tour in Germany in 2017, where they will return in November 2019 to play at the True Thrash Fest Hamburg.
"Into the Armageddon", with magnific artwork by Ozan Yildirim (Deadhouse Studio), is undoubtedly their best work to date; an intense and infernal thrash metal opus that will surely be the delight of lovers of bands like KREATOR, DARK ANGEL, SLAYER, SODOM...
Brazilian black/death/thrash metal legends Vulcano have signed a two-album record deal and publishing agreement with Mighty Music. The band from São Paulo is currently putting the final touches on their new, 11th studio album, entitled "Eye In Hell", which will be released on LP, CD and digital in early 2020 worldwide on the Danish label. The artwork will be done by Roberto Toderico (Tygers Of Pan Tang, Pestilence, Sinister) and mastering will happen in Medley Studio (Artillery, Thorium, Glenn Hughes), Copenhagen.
Zhema Rodero, guitar player and Vulcano founder, has the following to say about the deal:-
"This is a great opportunity in our career and we are very proud about it. Wait for our new album in the next months. It will be a great push in the direction of the metalheads all over the world. Vulcano is a part of the Brazilian Unholy Trinity (together with Sarcófago and Sepultura). In fact, it was the first of the three bands to release a studio album, back in 1986. Ever since then, the group have released 10 full-length albums, toured the world and kept the South-American extreme metal alive.
Fernando Reis, Mighty Music's international promoter, adds:-
"Vulcano is one of the bands that still holds the torch of extreme metal of the 80's - raw, undisputed, honest. It's an honour and a pleasure to work with these Brazilian brothers and help show the metalheads - old school and new school - how authentic extreme music sounds like".

Following the release of their acclaimed second full-length, Experiment of Existence, Chile's premier thrash band Ripper are back with their first new material in three years. Sensory Stagnation feels like a continuation and evolution of the band's established sound.
Album track "The Unreal" is now streaming at this location.
The high-speed thrashing and intricate riffs are still there, as well as the philosophical lyrics and incomprehensibly good bass work. But the band has leaned a little further into their progressive influences, with a more pronounced presence of Atheist riding shotgun with their usual Teutonic and South American thrash forerunners. The result is an outing that feels rich despite a run time of roughly 20 minutes, loaded with some of the band's best playing and most fascinating ideas to date.
Sensory Stagnation is coming September 30th on CD, cassette and digital platforms from Unspeakable Axe Records, with a vinyl release to follow from Dark Descent Records.

Formed in the bylanes of Bassein, Mumbai in 2017, the Indian five-piece thrashers Sabotage channel the cut-throat boldness and the unceasing exuberance of the Bay Area thrash metal. The group has already made a remarkable impression nationally by becoming two-time finalists of Wacken Metal Battle – India. With high velocity live assaults and dynamic song-structures, SABOTAGE is surely a great addition to the fast-growing Indian underground metal.
The quintet’s first ever release, The Order of Genocide, comes out on CD and digital format on August 3rd. The EP contains four frenzied and ruthless tracks, strictly following the scripture of old school thrash metal. The subjects of the song rotate from failed judicial systems, anti-political norms to serial killers.
As the first preview of the EP, the band release the title track, debuted at Germany's Legacy Magazine
The band comment:-
"The title track of this EP is loosely based on power hungry hounds who will ensure they stoop to any level to retain the authority. The most valid innuendo would be politicians who would orchestrate division in the name of religion, caste and win their vote banks to be the central powerhouse just to chew the common man and spit 'em out! The song is our way of telling these hounds to fuck off!"

Hells Headbangers have set August 30th as the international release date for Sadokist's highly anticipated second album, Necrodual Dimension Funeral Storms, on CD and vinyl LP formats.
Sadokist formed in 2007 and have lurked deep in the fertile Finnish underground since 2007, brewing up demos that pronounced its foremost aims: the telltale Evil Sado Fuckin' Metal in 2008 and 2010's Horrors From Hell, with a split tape in between with comrades Black Angel fittingly titled Sadomatik Angel Attack. A couple more demos followed in 2012, and all this hard graft eventually culminated in the opus of obscurity now known as Thy Saviour's Halo, Held by Horns, the band's cult-classic debt album from 2014. Deeply and reverently committed to their classic forebears - from the early Big Three of Teutonic thrash to the first explosions of filth from the '80s South American underground, not to mention the almighty Bathory and Necrovore - Sadokist nevertheless exude an effervescent elan and caustic, careening charm that immediately put them well beyond mere "retro" retread. In fact, their youthful vibrancy put Thy Saviour's Halo, Held by Horns over the hump of over-familiarity and into a realm populated by the likes of Nifelheim, Desaster, and Aura Noir, such is the strength of Sadokist's songwriting.
Now allied with long-time fans Hells Headbangers, Sadokist are prepared to unleash their second full-length nuclear detonation: Necrodual Dimension Funeral Storms. An intensification of Saviour's Halo, Held by Horns in every way - more violence, more finesse, more speed, more ominousness, more of MORE - Necrodual Dimension Funeral Storms is a crude 'n' rude plunge deep into the depths of Satanic speed metal HELL. The album was recorded at the band's rehearsal space and then finished at Megahammer's home studio during 2017-2018; as such, it retains a touch of the caustic rawness of their debut album whilst exhibiting more clarity that thankfully doesn't dampen their ever-burning fires. In fact, the pronounced up-ratcheting of execution brings their effervescent furiousness into greater focus, allowing these anthems to bring bountiful diabolism and a perverse joy to any listener infected with Sadokist's salacious charm. Or, put another way: mandatory headbanging shall spill over into total and utter possession, and the effect shall be instantaneous as well as long-lasting.
Teetering on the edge of the abyss but exhibiting a mastery beyond compare, Sadokist shall lead you into Necrodual Dimension Funeral Storms. The first storm can be found with the new track "Beater of Children of God," which can be heard HERE at Hells Headbangers' Bandcamp, where the album can be pre-ordered.
Italian renaissance metallers Temptress stream the entirety of their debut EP, The Orb, at the New Wave of Traditional Heavy Metal (NWOTHM) YouTube channel. Set for international release on July 8th via Dying Victims Productions on 7" vinyl format, hear Temptress's The Orb in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Although a brand-new entity, Temptress are a veritable blast from the past. Moodily melodic and draped in the cloak of night, Temptress create effortlessly cruising mid-tempo heavy metal of a most early '80s vintage. Even down to their production style, the power-trio have this style down COLD, and it emits a nostalgic fire that's somehow fresh across these two equally strong tracks. A new twist on the old NWOBHM comes courtesy of Italy - gaze deeply into Temptress' The Orb!

The stunning cover artwork was created by acclaimed artist Ed Repka (MEGADETH, DEATH, MUNICIPAL WASTE).
Founding member, guitarist and singer Nick Melissourgos has prepared the songs, which were subsequently recorded in the Zero Gravity Studios in Athens, Greece, and, in case of the drums, in the Soundlodge Studios in Papenburg, Germany. The album was produced by the band itself, which has for the first time in years a consistent line-up – making them stronger than ever before. Nine songs, driven by irrepressible rage, were finally mixed by Jens Bogren at the Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden, and mastered by Tony Lindgren.
More information coming soon – stay tuned.
