The return of Amen was big news to anyone that was an oily, depressed teenager at the turn of the century. To anyone that had just started listening to Bill Hicks and was getting aimlessly angry at everything from politics to their cat, Casey Chaos was like a sweary Jesus.

Alt-Fest 2014 Slaylist CANCELLED Thrash Hits

Another Sunday, another Slaylist dedicated to the line-up of one of the UK’s upcoming summer festivals. This week it is the turn of Alt-Fest – a brand new festival taking place over the weekend of 15-17 August, in the Boughton Estate near Kettering. It’s still got a fair whack of metal and rock in the line-up, but Alt-Fest separates itself form the crowd with a healthy dollop of goth and industrial music as well. Go stuff this week’s Slaylist down your ears and you’ll see what we’re talking about.

Oh dear. Alt-Fest has been cancelled. Still, you can still enjoy our Spotify Playlist, right?
