Thrash Hits Podcast 1

Raz couldn’t make it to “the studio” for episode 003 of the Thrash Hits podcast, so this week we got everyone’s favourite long-haired fantasy-nerd hipster, Tom Dare, to sit in instead. This week’s topics see us breaking down the new albums from Gojira and Linkin Park, mouthing off about Kate Nash’s…errr…new direction, and see us manage to say something so offensive we felt the need to bleep it out.
