In the intensities in ten cities follow-up to Popoff’s celebrated New Wave of
British Heavy Metal trilogy (Smokin’ Valves, Wheels of Steel and This Means
War) along with Hit the Lights: The Birth of Thrash, Martin now
offers all the tales of the bands and records that built thrash metal into a
juggernaut circa 1983 to 1986.
In the words of those who were there plus the music-makers themselves, this is
the story of records like Ride the Lightning, Killing is My Business,
Spreading the Disease and Reign in Blood, along with contributions from
Anvil, Exciter, Voivod, Overkill, Pantera, Exodus, Celtic Frost and the
German contingent of Sodom, Kreator and Destruction. Multiple members
of all the above bands get their say, along with the industry giants that sent
the records into the shops. The end result is the ultimate history of thrash’s
most blessed and blasted years, a golden time for metal that forms the bedrock
of the thriving thrash scene of today.
