2018 release. In a landscape of identikit thrash bands, Gama Bomb have always stood out. Unapologetically Irish, with lyrics mixing humor and social commentary and a reputation for legendary beer-soaked stage shows, they've never made a secret of enjoying what they do. Now, in their sixteenth year, thrash metal's arch-geeks return with their sixth studio album Speed Between The Lines. Gama Bomb are using that voice to deliver sharper commentary than ever: Speed Between The Lines delivers cutting takes on everything from the growing poverty gap ('We R Going 2 Eat U'), to the rise of right wing populism ('Alt-Reich'), environmental disaster ('World Gone To Hell') and the conformity of social media ('Stay Rotten'). Of course, this being Gama Bomb there are also songs paying tribute to Kurt Russell, listening to Motrhead and paying people to kick you in the balls.
