a decade now, the Irish five-piece have mixed vintage thrash metal with absurd,
acid-tongued lyrics, keeping it strictly old school even as they break very
modern music industry taboos.
to self-imposed commandments that prohibit ballads, acoustic intros and the
meat-headed tendencies of modern metal, GAMA BOMB went from a quiet corner of
Ireland to global cult status in short order, and show no signs of letting up now.
a string of three critically-lauded albums and a confrontational pro-file
sharing stance that saw them go toe-to-toe with everyone from their
contemporaries to rock’s old guard, GAMA BOMB never lost sight of their goal:
to make killer, neck-wrecking thrash metal.
BOMB’s fourth album The Terror Tapes, released in April on AFM Records, tears
the old speed metal formula a new asshole, and then buys it a pint.
Terror Tapes is a battery of sing-along anthems that never let the needle drop out
of the red, melding a very modern geek’s-eye view of the world with classic
metal song writing.
songs that are inspired by midnight movies, hard touring and a comprehensive
knowledge of near-forgotten thrash demos, now tempered by a year of hard struggle
for the band.
2009’s Tales from the Grave in Space, one of the first albums to be released as
a free download by a signed band, GAMA BOMB changed labels, welcomed a new
guitarist and dealt with injury, therapy and surgery all in twelve short
as they return with nothing less than the most striking thrash album in 20
years under their belts, it’s clear the Geeks shall inherit the Earth.
