Gama Bomb  

The retro thrash craze continues to flourish, this time with Northern Ireland contributing a band by the name of Gama Bomb. They debuted with the short-but-sweet Survival Of The Fastest in 2005 before Earache added them to their ever-expanding thrash roster, releasing the wonderfully titled Citizen Brain in 2008. Most every song is under three minutes and they all race along at the speed of light -- really, explanations are unnecessary with these kinds of bands, they don't pretend to be anything other than 80's thrash worshippers, and for many, that's just fine. Now on the AFM roster, they're continuing their retro onslaught with an EP and a full-length in 2013.
