The Thrash Hits Cloudcast returns for 2014, and our opening episode is made up of the seven Song Of The Day choices we’ve been posting on our Twitter feed. Why aren’t you following us already? You are? You’re cool. You’re okay. You can stay.
That tracklisting for anyone not keeping up, along with our somewhat-spurious reasons for selecting them:
Rage Against The Machine – ‘War Within A Breath (live)’ (because we first posted in on New Year’s Day – listen to the lyrics)
Job For A Cowboy – ‘March To Global Enslavement’ (because of the impending return to work)
Wormrot – ‘Principle Of Puppet Warfare’ (for no reason other than we want them to tour the UK again)
Thin Lizzy – ‘Waiting For An Alibi’ (to mark the anniversary of Phil Lynott’s death)
Marilyn Manson – ‘Coma White’ (to mark the birthday of Marilyn “my real name is Brian Warner” Manson)
Iced Earth – ‘Among The Living Dead’ (because their new album just came out)
Deftones – ‘When Girls Telephone Boys’ (because it was the 77th anniversary of the first transatlantic commercial phone call. Duh!)
If Spotify is more your thing, we’ve gone and put a version of this week’s Cloudcast on there too – but c’mon, listen to the Mixcloud embed. It makes us feel special.
