Our first ever live show was at the Craigiebield Hotel in Penicuik on 28 August 2009, back when we were called “Disposable Heroes”, after the Metallica song of the same name. We played some very shaky covers, including songs by Metallica, Motorhead, Bullet For My Valentine, Misfits and Slayer. Liam was just 14 at the time, and the crowd was mainly our friends from school. Nonetheless, it kickstarted what is about to be ten years of fun, riffs, memories, travelling, stress, financial pain and every emotion in-between.

Raging, fast thrashy bits interspersed with punishing, slow hardcore breakdowns. Harder than beating M. Bison with Zangief. Riffs lethal enough to melt a crash of fully-grown rhinoceroses from 800 feet.
United by a desire to create uncompromising thrash metal, Black Talon began with a jam session in mid-2010 that resulted in enough riffs to sink an aircraft carrier.
