Carcass almunus Michael Amott leads his Scandinavian countrymen, Arch Enemy, into battle for the Tyrants of Evil tour featuring the best of the old- and new-school thrash acts. Call Amott's version "neo-thrash"pummeling, groove-oriented attacks with fiery ax gymnastics and a foxy succubus-voiced frontwoman. Exodus are the true unsung heroes of thrashdom: The Big 4 (Anthrax, Megadeth, Metallica, Slayer) may have got all the glory, but it was this Bay Area legend's classic, Bonded By Blood, that is the quintessential final wordjust ask the countless copycat bands half their age. With Arsis and Mutiny Within.
