Sunday Slaylist: Reading & Leeds Festival 2014

August 10th, 2014

ReadingLeedsSundaySpotifySlaylistThrashHits

Bloody hell, there’s an awful lot of nonsense on the Reading and Leeds 2014 festival line-up, isn’t there? I mean, we know this isn’t a bona fide heavy music festival like Download and Sonisphere, but sweet flippin’ Jesus is there some pony stinking up the bill this year. That’s because it’s enormous – literally 100s of bands – but, as such, there are also a whole load of bloody excellent bands and this week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist cuts through all that and brings you the very best of the heavy stuff that you can find if you sniff around the schedule a little bit.

Over three long years ago, many predicted that Architects’ headline show at KOKO on the eve of the release of The Here and Now was the start of an album campaign that would catapult the band into mainstream greatness. That didn’t happen, and the band have spent several years working on rebuilding the momentum that got them to that point. Now they’re back at the venue where that journey began at – will history repeat itself? Gavin Lloyd was on hand to bear witness.

Sunday Slaylist: Warped Tour UK 2012 Endurance Test

November 11th, 2012

Vans Warped Tour UK first promo pic Thrash Hits

Yesterday the Vans Warped Tour made its first return to London since 1999. We didn’t go. We do know some people who did go, and their reactions on Twitter ranged from “Oh my God! Onesies everywhere!” to “Lasted just an hour at Warped”. We know that (some) of us here at Thrash Hits have a reputation as being surly No Fun Club-types, but by gosh, did we not see this as a challenge to make a listenable Sunday Spotify Slaylist about it.

Oh God, did we try.

After 2011’s ambitious but slightly unfulfilling The Here And Now, the UK’s premier tech metallers, Architects are back already with their fifth album, Daybreaker. And it’s really fucking good.

After the discordant chimed beginnings of opening song, ‘The Bitter End’, the album builds and builds until the jarring siren riffs of ‘Alpha Omega’ make me want to learn some sort of martial art – maybe all the martial arts – just so I can roundhouse dropkick a tree. With my head. Every day.

When Brighton metalcore-ish types, Architects, went on tour across the UK earlier this month, we didn’t just have one photographer covering it. Oh no. We had two. In the first batch of shots we’ve got from the tour, we’re bringing you the snaps taken by the mighty Gary Wolstenholme, from when the tour rolled in to the Sheffield Corporation.
