It’s just a week away now – the Thrash Hits-sponsored Hellfire II Festival is going to turn Birmingham upside down, with the strongest line-up of a British Winter metal festival since…well…ever! Which is why we’ve dedicated this week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist to the bands playing next weekend’s event.
While there are some international visitors in the line-up, we’re particularly proud to be sponsoring an event that recognises the depth of British metal talent: Malefice, Ted Maul, The Rotted, Xerath, Saxon, Sacred Mother Tongue, Trigger The Bloodshed, No Consequence, Exit Ten, Blackhole, The Painted Smiles, The Arusha Accord, Anathema….the list goes on.
Spotify are still limiting new free users to their service, but since we’ve got an absolute shedload of invites anyone who hasn’t downloaded Spotify already can just send us an email and we’ll get you sorted quick-snap. Yes, we are that awesome.
Watch Cancer Bats demonstrate why you should catch them at Hellfire next weekend
We managed to cover almost the entire line-up of the festival in this week’s Slaylist – now that you’ve had a listen, who are you most looking forward to next weekend? We’d be lying if we said we weren’t a little bit moist at the prospect of hearing some new Cancer Bats songs – they’ve been holed up in the studio working on their new album for some time, and they’re bound to blow a gasket or two on stage in Brum.
