I have to side with Adam on this one I'm afraid, the reason I don't come often is because thrash bores the pants off me (along with my legendary skintness), but I can understand why thrash gigs are so regular with the majority of the UK scene being generic thrash (they must all want to get signed to Earache) due to the new trend, and so many of the death metal bands are either crap, or so up their own arses they demand huge fees for playing to no-one, or just pull out consistantly at the last minute.

Have you actually heard many of the UK bands? A lot of them aren't very generic tbh, and most were going before thrash became trendy. It's hardly any different to playing generic 'old school DM' either is it, just not as acceptable to the underground scene police.
Well, I know the ones like Evile, SSS etc and I think they're pretty dull, though I don't know much about them. Obviously there's the true bands around too, I was more intending it towards bands like Amenti who just rip off Slayer and Metallica riffs and put hardcore vocals over them. I didn't intend it as an insult to anyone here, it's just that these bands really aren't my thing... I can count the thrash albums I own probably on one hand!
Too much stomping for me. I like my thrash fast and with nasty vocals ala old Kreator, old Sodom, otherwise it bores the shit out of me. Stomping is boring, but you can't foot/snare/foot/snare blast beats
