New & Noteworthy, June 29th – Run on Reissues

Posted by on June 29, 2010

In a week where the Big Four not only played shows together, but even joined together for a one-off live cover song, this week is surprisingly devoid of thrash news. Maybe the awesomeness of the Big Four being in the same place at the same time was just too much for the rest of the […]
