James Hetfield and Dave Mustaine

Brian LewJames Hetfield and Dave Mustaine, 1982

Tell us something. Are you bored with your “lo-fi”? Tired from all of your “chill beats”? Do you wish you could listen to something that would take you away from your “study music”? Do you ever just listen to punk rock and feel that it misses a certain “je ne sais quoi”?

Well buckle up, cuz UIC Radio has something for you!

Coming to you earholes this week LIVE on UIC Radio, is THRASH WEEK! The first weeklong collaboration between the DJs of UIC Radio to celebrate the world of THRASH METAL!


It’s the unholy love child of the speed and ferocity of 70’s hardcore punk and the technicality and might of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. We’re talking insane shredding, pummeling double bass, earth-shattering riffs, pounding bass, disdain for the establishment, and absolutely no rips given about what your mom or your priest thinks. Tune in throughout the week to hear the likes of modern acts, such as POWER TRIP, HAVOK, WARBRINGER, MUNICIPAL WASTE, and DUST BOLT! Listen in as we pay tribute to those who paved the way for the talent of yesterday and today and for days to come, like BLACK SABBATH, JUDAS PRIEST, DIO, and MÖTORHEAD! And of course, hear from the pioneers of thrash, the BIG FOUR: METALLICA, SLAYER, MEGADETH, and ANTHRAX! We got it all and we are bringing it to you all week long!

Check out any of the listed shows during this week to hear UIC Radio pay homage to the THRASH METAL. Listen in LIVE on or on the Radio FX app!
