Ramming Speed

The aptly-titled Ramming Speed mixes a bit of thrash, a dose of NWOBHM, and a healthy slice of punk on their debut album Brainwreck, released in 2008 (since then, they've signed to the Prosthetic label). Retro thrash has been pouring into the streets for years now, and bands like this really don't add anything new to the mix, but intellectualism and progression isn't the point here. Thrashing about and having a good time is the point, and that's precisely what Ramming Speed is all about.
