Contract In Blood: A History Of UK Thrash Metal

Extensive 5CD box set exploring the history of Thrash Metal in the UK – curated by author and scene chronicler Ian Glasper. From legends such as Venom, Onslaught, Sabbat and Acid Reign to lesser-known, cult artists. 83 tracks across 5CD + 40pp booklet, including rare demo and live recordings and previously unseen photographs. Includes TEN previously unreleased tracks! Released to coincide with the publication of Ian Glasper’s book of the same name. Curated by the people who brought you Close To The Noise Floor, Revolutionary Spirit, Creation Artifact, Silhouettes And Statues and many more critically acclaimed box sets. For decades, UK thrash metal has been the most underrated and overlooked member of the metal family. Criminally ignored, and considered secondary to its American, German and Brazilian equivalents, the genre has nevertheless continued to survive and thrive, rising from the ashes on more than one occasion. The scene has generated a wealth of amazing music, often in the face of adversity and apathy, and Contract In Blood documents the whole scene - warts 'n' all. From humble demo recordings to major label artists, spanning over thirty years of relentless and uncompromising music. This is the definitive collection of UK thrash. DISC ONE: THE NORTH-EAST 1.
