earthtone9, the reformed British experimental metallers who several of us here at Thrash Hits carry embarrassing man-crushes on, are heading out on a mini-tour of the UK this December. If you went along to any of the shows on their May tour – or even if you just read our review of the London date – then you know that you ought to get off your fat arse and bust down to one of these gigs. You can consider it a pre-Christmas gift to yourself.

Beard Of The Week 006: Karl Middleton of earthtone9/Blackstorm

May 30th, 2010

This week’s winner of Beard of the Week is interesting because it’s an example of facial hair evolution. The winner’s beard has mutated, developed, and been modified throughout the wearer’s career in music. These are all traits that should be admired in a beard; no matter how mighty your facial hair is, to let your beard-styling stagnate is the mark of a man who grows a beard because he is merely tired of shaving, and not out of recognition of how badass beards actually are.

Live: Blackstorm @ Brighton Hobgoblin – Friday 9 April 2010

April 20th, 2010

For Brighton-based Brit-supergroup Blackstorm, it was their first gig of the year; for the venue, The Hobgoblin, it was it’s last gig ever. To record this momentous occasion, our man Andy Parker was on hand for both words and pictures.

You’ve got to be pretty bold in this day and age to have your first gig of the year 4 months in, but when you have the pedigree of the swaggering creature that’s known as Blackstorm, you really don’t care. When your founding line-up can boast past and present membership of earthtone9, The Ghost Of A Thousand, The Fall of Efrafa, Twin Zero, Skull Dozer, The Blueprint, This Is Menace, and Thrown To The Wolves, you can afford to take your time.
