I'm a fan (and you should be too) because...I'm 41. I was there, as a teenager, to be a part of the thrash scene as it unfolded. I watched the music evolve from the early to mid 80's, as my friends and I slowly pulled away from Maiden and Priest, craving a new sound that was all our own, OUR generation! Back then, cassette players had the continous play feature, and I used to sleep with "Hell Awaits" playing over and over all through the night! How sick is that?
