GAMA BOMB Joe Mc Guigan Interviewed Oct 13th 2018 on the Bloodshed Metal Messiah Radio Int.
In 2002 in the town of Newry Northern Ireland “Gama Bomb” was formed bonding over a shared love of retro comics, movies and old thrash metal cassette, with lyrics mixing humor and social commentary and a reputation for legendary beer-soaked stage shows.

Now in their sixteenth year, thrash metal’s arch-geeks return with their sixth studio album “Speed Between The Lines”, out on AFM Records on October 12th 2018.
The album’s cover is inspired by sci-fi and horror paperback novels of the 70s and 80s, while the tracks boast a rich, rounded production that brings to mind classic late 80s thrash.
