Hailing from Edinburgh, Disposable formed in 2009 with the desire to inject some good fun into the rich Scottish metal scene. 2014 saw the band release their debut album At The Foot Of The World and in 2016 they released follow up EP Life Misguided. To date they have played hundreds of shows across the UK, as well as making numerous festival appearances including a storming set at the prestigious Wildfire Festival and performing alongside Arch Enemy at the inaugural Heavy Scotland festival.
Now, with their second album almost complete, a UK tour and a fresh line up, Disposable are about to grab UK thrash by the balls with the release of new single, ‘Ravenous’, on the 10th of November. We took the opportunity to ask William Robertson about the 3 albums that have influenced him the most.
Metallica – Ride The Lightning
‘Fight Fire With Fire’ is still the best thrash metal song of all time in my opinion. The way the riff kicks in at the start is incredible. The rhythmic delivery of the vocals and the guitar melodies throughout are perfect. I love that whole album, it has great riffs, great lyrics, great bass guitar work, great drumming. It’s everything a thrash metal record should be. This album single handedly kick started my obsession with this genre of music. I’m only just passing out the other side of the thrash metal obsession these past few years, so it influenced about a decade of music for me.
