In the year that Metallica are announced as headlining the iconic Glastonbury Festival, in addition to Sonisphere (the 40th anniversary of gigs at Knebworth) Universal Music is celebrating 30 years of Thrash music by re-issuing seminal albums from the founding fathers of this sub-genre for the ThrashBack campaign.
