Aren't you guys glad it's finally uncool to like thrash metal again? Jeez, that took FOREVER.
Anyhow, good thrash transcends trendiness or fashion, and great thrash bands (such as Texas' own Rigor Mortis) never die, "retro" revivals be damned. Bear in mind: this is not the short-lived "Immolation" Rigor Mortis, rather it is the excellent, long-running, riff-driven purveyor of sick and twisted horror-thrash we've all grown to know and love lo these past two-and-a-half decades. A legacy of face-melting shreddification indeed. Everything about this band is fucking great, but the axemanship, man, THE AXEMANSHIP.
Fun Fact: Rigor Mortis' wacky jam "Foaming At The Mouth" appears on the soundtrack to the 1993 Hulk Hogan star vehicle Mr. Nanny, a movie which stands, to this day, as the zenith of all American filmmaking. Observe:
PS Cobras is on vacation til the middle of next week to celebrate the 235th birthday of this great nation in the only manner that it truly should be celebrated--by discharging firearms and igniting explosives in a remote rural location. Peace out, Turds.
America: FUCK YEAH.
