This week’s bands to watch in 2011 are telling us what their top 10 albums of 2011 were. Next up is Pure Negative.

Pure Negative
‘s drummer Hellhog (ex-Ted Maul, As She Screams) says that these were the albums of the year in 2010:

10- Soulfly – Omen
9- Immolation – Majesty And Decay
8- Iron Maiden – The Final Frontier
7- Cephalic Carnage – Misled by Certainty
6- Swans – My Father Will Guide Me Up a Rope In The Sky
5- White Wizzard – Over The Top
4- Kylesa – Sprial Shadow
3- Anathema – We’re Here Because We’re Here
2- Killing Joke – Absolute Dissent
1- Overkill – Ironbound

Hellhog said:

Overkill are one of the most under-rated bands, and are often over-looked… Why? This album is a complete return to form.

It’s brutal, punishing thrash with quality production, and each song is an anthem. Bring Me The Night is the best tune!

Featuring ex members of Labrat and Ted Maul, Londoner’s Pure Negative offer up a slice of brutality that few can match.

At their last gig said they:

slow down their riffage to extremely slow speeds at times before turning on a sixpence into fast paced death metalish sounds. Top stuff.

Now with a stable line up including new vocalist ‘Cleetus Van Damm’ (from Affluenza) in place, they are actually sounding even better than ever.

2011 is going to be a big year for Pure Negative with a debut album promised later in the year.

Check them out at the first Bloodstock Metal to the Masses 2011 heat at Nambucca, Holloway Road, London, on January 23, from 7pm.
