The world needs more Thrash

This is an excellent way to introduce people to bands keeping the scene alive.

I really like the idea, but the songs on the Myspace I thought were kinda weak... even my beloved Deadfall sounded too close to average although they're definitely the best out of those 4. If thrash wasn't parodying itself before, it certainly is now
