Sunday Slaylist: Judgment Night

October 19th, 2014

Judgment Night Slaylist Thrash Hits

As it’s nearly Hallowe’en, we were going to rant about the soundtrack for Spawn: The Movie for this week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist. It’s a rubbish movie adaptation of a painfully 90s-naff comic. It’s about Satan and is stuffed to the tits with bad horror imagery. And it’s got a soundtrack of collaborations featuring artists from across the spectrum of heavy metal and artists you’d never expect them to get together with.

Wait…what? THAT’s the Reading/Leeds Festival line-up?

March 30th, 2010

Believe it or not, Reading & Leeds Festival 2010 have already announced a more controversial line-up than Download and Sonisphere put together. Hugh Platt explains why.

Holy fuck! We guess you’ve seen the initial Reading and Leeds Festival line-up announcements by now, and we’ll admit that we are surprised. We normally like to smugly stroke our beards at impending festival announcements, safe in the knowledge of what’s about to be revealed is either a) underwhelming, b) already pre-leaked to near-pointlessness, or c) of absolutely no interest whatsoever.

But Reading and Leeds Festivals this year have already gone beyond expectations.

eurockeenes festival 2009 thrash hits france

Roving Thrash Hits photographer, Gary Wolstenholme only went and found himself in a French nature reserve last weekend. When he wasn’t eating baguettes, Boursin and red, red wine, whilst getting massaged on an organic sunlounger, Gary was attending Eurockéennes Festival. Luckily he had a camera to take loads of photos of bands like Slipknot and Gojira. Not bad.
