Thrash Legends



This bill is totally fucking insane. You've got 80s Thrash Legends Hirax, Dallas Grindcore Kill The Client, Houston Grindcore P.L.F., Austin's Metalheads Mammoth Grinder, and Hardcore Thrashers Streetcleaner. At RED 7, in Austin Texas.

Here's the B and the W artwork:


I looked at a bunch of Illustration Legend Frank Frazetta's artwork to get into the vibe for this one, and thought a lot about Gurren Lagaan as I worked on the colors. I've only watched a couple episodes yet, but man, that show is a great ride.

Speaking of Legends, over at Maximumfun.org, The Sound of Young America Podcast has an incredible
Interview with Soul Legend Bill Withers
. I really like The Sound of Young America in general, but this interview is Beyond Thunderdome.

I got some more stuff coming up, so stay tuned.
