Y’know how people are always failing to get the pun in the name ‘Thrash Hits’? It happens all the time. You’d think after five long years of doing this, people would’ve caught on to the fact that it’s a play on words on Smash Hits, and a recognition that we (in part) try to channel their simultaneous irreverence and love for their subject matter, albeit from a metal perspective. And that we’re not exclusively a website about thrash metal.
Sometimes though, you have to give the idiots what they want, which is why we’re publishing theses photos by ace snapper Gary Wolstenholme of Kreator’s recent UK tour. Sure, we’re a month late. They fell down the back of the digital sofa, what with our relaunch and all. Anyway, hush your bellyaching and go look at his shots of Kreator, Evile and Xentrix playing live in Manchester.
Kreator’s UK tour has (obviously) long since finished, and they’re now getting ready for a packed European festival season – check out the list of dates over on their Facebook page if you’re going to be continental-bound at any point this summer to see if they’ll be at your Euro-fest of choice. Evile are released their fourth album, Skull, this very week, and will be playing in support of Suicidal Tendencies in London in July, as well as playing various other dates in support of their new long-player. We’ll have a review of it up later this week. Xentrix are playing Bloodstock Open Air 2013. That’s a thing that’s happening.
