Nuclear Assault + Arsis + Acrassicauda

NYC thrash godfathers Nuclear Assault, currently in the midst of their third reunion, fire up the chugging riffs and grittily operatic vocals. Now, as in the ’80s, the band's secret weapon is the funky dexterity of bass man Danny Lilker, also of Brutal Truth and Venemous Concept. Anthemic death-metalists Arsis and Baghdad-formed, Brooklyn-residing ragers Acrassicauda set the stage.
