It’s time for another Thrash Hits festival splash page – and this time it’s for Hammerfest. All of our Hammerfest 2013 coverage from the weekend will be linked to on this here post, so make sure you bookmark it as it’s all you’re going to need. Yep. That means individual band coverage (photos, setlists and maybe even some reviews), all the dodgy rumours and awful gossip our man David Keevill overhears, and every single photo of Wales-based debauchery that Gary Wolstenholme and Jenn McCambridge snap will be here.
Arthemis are a melodic Power Metal band who started up in 1994. Originally called "Nemhesis", they established their line up in 1998 and it consists of Andrea Martongelli, Matteo Galbier, Alessio Garavello and Matteo Ballottari. Read more on Last.fm
Arthemis on Thrash Hits
March 15th, 2013
Day 2 of Hammerfest is traditionally the “keep drinking through the hangover” day – we wonder how our man David Keevill is holding up?
6 things we learned on Day 2 of Hammerfest V:
March 15th, 2013
According to their setlist, Arthemis played a song called ‘Metal Hammer’ at Metal Hammer’s Hammerfest Festival. Try saying that sentence six times quickly.

With (hopefully) a painful and debilitating hangover in tow, we forced David Keevill back out into the drinking pits of Hammerfest to report on Day 2 – the first full day of the festival. Little did we realise at the time that one of the band he would see would result in him getting “spermy pants”. Jeesh….

This time next week, our intrepid representatives at Hammerfest IV – The Hammer of Thor, will be slowly trying to recover from a weekend where the level of attention paid to the many heavy metal bands playing is directly (and inversely) proportional to the levels of booze being imbibed by them. How do we know they’ll be getting smashed rather than getting their mosh on? Well, because even if you headline your event with Anthrax and Skindred, we know for a fact that whenever more than one Thrash Hits contributor ends up in the same room at Pontin’s in Prestatyn, someone ends up puking. That’s not us trying to sound like a bunch of lads-on-tour kerrrrayyyzzzyy drunks either – that’s the raw statistics of Hammerfest talking.
In any case, we figured we’d put together a Hammerfest-themed Spotify Slaylist to start getting them in the mood nice and early.

Is there anything better than a Thrash Hits Festival Splash Page? Yeah, loads of things but you won’t find the best online festival coverage on any of them. You’ll find that right here. All our work from Bloodstock Open 2011 is going be linked to from this page (eventually), so give it a bookmark or just don’t close it, because it’s all you’re going to need. Interviews, photos, setlists, rumours, and who knows? – maybe even some tiny reviews – it’s all here. [Read more →]

The thing we always remember about Arthemis is that they released that free download compilation where they covered a load of pop songs from Britney, Lady Gaga and Rihanna in a ridiculously OTT metal style. This has fuck-all to do with their Bloodstock performance, but it’s an excuse to link to it again regardless.
