Carcass is a death metal/grindcore/melodic death metal/death n roll band formed by Napalm Death guitarist Bill Steer together with drummer Ken Owen in 1985 and is considered by many to have been one of the most influential and talented bands within the extreme metal scene.
Carcass was originally based in Liverpool. On their first demo, Sanjiv contributed vocals. In 1987, bassist and vocalist Jeffrey Walker, formerly of the Electro Hippies, joined them. Read more on Last.fm
Carcass on Thrash Hits
August 11th, 2014
The last time Carcass played Bloodstock Open Air, they were one-half of a dual-headliner setup with Arch Enemy. That their comeback now boasts one of the strongest albums of their career in the form of Surgical Steel, the fact that they’re not headlining in 2014 shows just how much the festival has grown since 2009.

There’s less than a week to go until the Midlands once again plays host to the UK’s biggest outdoor unabashed metal festival. Make no mistake – Bloodstock Open Air carries no caveats about being a “rock” festival. It is about being the heaviest fully-camping festival the UK has to offer, and their 2014 line-up – stuffed to the guts with death, black, and extreme metal – sets the festival apart from the larger Download and Sonisphere Festivals. That’s not a bad thing – a little variety goes a long way in the saturated UK festival market – so naturally this week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist is all about the Bloodstock 2014 line-up.

You know what Carcass did that was super-cool at Sonisphere Festival 2014? They brought their former drummer Ken Owen out on stage with them. Ken, as you might know, suffered from a cerebral hemorrhage in 1999, which is why he no longer drums for the band, but his former bandmates have never forgotten him. Carcass, we salute you.
Carcass @ Sonisphere Festival 2014 setlist:
Corporal Jigsore Quandary
Cadaver Pouch Conveyor System
Unfit for Human Consumption
This Mortal Coil
The Granulating Dark Satanic Mills
Captive Bolt Pistol
Ruptured in Purulence / Heartwork

Oh it’s been away for a while, but Sonisphere Festival has returned to the UK and is less than one whole week away. We cannot wait. We are excited. There are loads of our favourite bands playing at the magnificent Knebworth Park, which is why in time-honoured tradition, we’ve gone and made ourselves a Sunday Spotify Slaylist of some of the bands we really want to see next weekend to get us well and truly in the mood for Sonisphere’s comeback weekend.

Reviews, interviews, and the like are our bread and butter – as much as we like our giant, sprawling, controversy-stirring opinion pieces, it’d be knackering if that’s all we did. Today we’re going to look back at our biggest reviews and interviews of 2013 – and by “biggest”, we mean the ones that the most people read. Oh, and reveal what was the most popular entry in our high-brow Heavy Metal Sandwich series. Just because.

The end of the year is here. Pretty much everything that’s going to be released is now out, and barring any late breaking oh-my-God-is-that-actually-happening style news stories, 2013 is done and dusted. And with the convenient if entirely arbitrary transition from one year to the next a mere 48 hours away, we’re dedicating the final Sunday Spotify Slaylist of 2013 to the records that we loved the most this year.

Like any artform, music is not a competition. There is only good and bad music and that categorisation in itself is all down to subjective taste. However, in a bid for scientific rigour; some quantitative analysis to fortify the qualitative spiels, we’ve asked all the Thrash Hits contributors to list their favourite albums of 2013. Yeah, it’s here to boost our egos by claiming what we say is best and it’ll surely get some good clicks and you may (rightly) point out that it’s just another list but, at the very least, you might see an album that you’ve never heard of and think about buying it. That would be cool.

Life is funny. Music is fun. Life is serious. Music is serious. As in life, it is in music. There are moments that are hilarious and others that are much less so. Either way, they stick in your mind. Whether you revel in having fun or in poking fun, you will have had a Favourite Moment in 2013 and that’s what this list is. Some of them are utter abominations of class and style but that’s why you’re on this pitiful excuse of a website. Hooray.
