Coming out of gigs and clubs late at night, we have all, over the decades, seen and interacted with homeless people. This is something that we shouldn’t see in a “rich” country like the UK.
Moshin’ The Roof On is a UK thrash metal double compilation album, with 26 bands from across England, Scotland & Wales donating tracks to raise money for Shelter. The 26 songs, 1 hour 54 minutes of music spans the genre of thrash metal in the United Kingdom, with contributions of all kinds coming in, from remastered 30 year old tracks, re-recordings, exclusive raw demos, pre-mastered tracks and all the way through to brand new songs that haven’t been released by the bands themselves yet. The track list is at the bottom of this article, after a video message from Exodus’ legendary Zetro!
We could review this album… but it would either be too easy or too difficult because there are simply 26 quality thrash metal tracks. Many of the bands we’ve featured before, a handful we’d love to hear more from. Suffice to say, this isn’t a budget collection of throwaway metal songs. There are some absolute belters on here with each band seemingly picking one of their best songs (or volunteering a new one) for the collection. Come on, it’s only a frickin’ fiver!
Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through their advice, support and legal services. And they campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to them for help.
A home is a fundamental human need and a basic moral right, as vital as education or healthcare. But in Britain today, that right is being denied to millions of people whose lives are blighted by homelessness, bad conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. Shelter’s strategy sets out to be a turning point, an ambitious and fearless response to what has become a national emergency.
The artwork and CD layout has very kindly been created and donated to the Moshin’ The Roof On project by Andy “Sarge” Pilkington of Very Metal Art.
The album is available to buy via Bandcamp digital download for £5 (or More). If you fancy a CD copy, it’s £10 (or more) plus P&P which includes a free digital download. Pre-Order is available now.
