Puerto Rico’s Internet TV show “Rockspot Plus” conducted an interview with reactivated East Coast thrashers NUCLEAR ASSAULT when the band played in Puerto Rico on November 12, 2011. You can now watch the chat below.
NUCLEAR ASSAULT released its first-ever DVD, “Louder Harder Faster”, in October 2006 via Screaming Ferret Wreckords. Recorded during the band’s performance at the 2005 Louder Harder Faster Festival (taped on June 5, 2005), the disc also includes such extra bits as vintage live footage, slide shows (put to the original “Survive” demos), music videos, in the studio footage, unreleased songs, and an interview with longtime members Danny Lilker and Glenn Evans.
Originally formed back in 1984, NUCLEAR ASSAULT bassist Lilker witnessed the birth of thrash metal first as an original member of ANTHRAX, as well as a crucial component to S.O.D., NUCLEAR ASSAULT and BRUTAL TRUTH.
While many thrash metal bands tempered their aggression with melody, NUCLEAR ASSAULT has stuck to their guns throughout and in the process, released such thrash classics as 1988’s “Survive” and 1989’s “Handle with Care”.
After an extended hiatus, the group returned in the early 21st century with their first new studio album in over a decade, 2005’s “Third World Genocide”.
