Facts in a nude state are not liable criminally, any more than bright and beautiful children commit a felony by being born thus; but it is the solemn duty of those having these children in charge to put appropriate, healthful, and even attractive apparel upon them at the earliest possible moment.It is thus with facts. They are the frame-work of history, not the drapery. They are like the cold, hard, dishevelled, damp, and uncomfortable body under the knife of the demonstrator, not the bright and bounding boy, clothed in graceful garments and filled to every tingling capillary with a soul.We, each of us, the artist and the author, respect facts. We have never, either of us, said an unkind word regarding facts. But we believe that they should not be placed before the public exactly as they were born. We want to see them embellished and beautified. That is why this history is written.... more

Contract in Blood : A History of UK Thrash Metal

Contract in Blood : A History of UK Thrash Metal

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 UK's thrash scene has generated a wealth of amazing music, often in the face of adversity and apathy, and Contract In Blood tells the whole story--warts 'n' all. From humble DIY beginnings in backstreet pubs to misrepresentation in the music press and being misunderstood by major labels on the world stage and beyond. Featuring Venom / Onslaught / Sabbat / Evile / Xentrix / Slammer / Gama Bomb / Acid Reign / Re-Animator / Lawnmower Deth / English Dogs / Mutant / Virus / D.A.M. / Sacrilege / Deathwish / Toranaga / Warfare / Pitiful Reign / Hydra Vein / Shrapnel / Hellbastard / Sylosis / Metal Messiah / SSS / Purgatory / Send More Paramedics / Warhammer / Tortoise Corpse / Anihilated / Suicide Watch / Cerebral Fix / Seventh Angel / Holosade / Metal Duck / Atomkraft / Decimator / Pendemia / Reign of Fury / Amnesia / Obliteration / Drunken State / Adrenicide and more than 50 other unsung UK metal anti-heroes.... more
