Future Hits 131: War Wolf

War Wolf
From: Brighton, UK.
Lazy equation: (Dopefight – some of their members) + shorter songs + BIGGER TEETH.

Thrash Hits verdict: When we heard late last year that Dopefight were calling it a day, we were super bummed out. They were one of our earlier Future Hits, and could dependably be found turning up on the bill of all manner of killer sludge and doom all-dayers that we’ve indulged in over the last few years. However, it wasn’t long before two of Dopefight resurfaced in War Wolf. Gone are the longer, extended blues jams and outright Sabbath worship, and in their place is a leaner, punkier, sub-3 minute approach to ever-so-crisp-at-the-crust doomy metal. With their debut album’s physical release on the horizon, we dropped the guys a line to talk about their transition from their former band into the beast that is War Wolf.

Sunday Slaylist: DesertFest 2012

DesertFest 2012 Sunday Spotify Slaylist Thrash Hits

With all the brouhaha regarding summer outdoor festivals, we somewhat neglected a springtime indoor one that’s taking place on our very doorstep – DesertFest. Today is the third and final day of the first London incarnation of the festival, where more than 50 stoner, doom, spacerock and sludge bands have been giving the foundations of Camden Town a solid shake-up. If – like us – you had to miss this year’s festival, you can at least console yourself with the Spotify Slaylist we’ve made in the festival’s honour.

Future Hits 085: Dopefight

August 1st, 2011

Dopefight Thrash Hits

From: “Hell” (ahem), UK
Lazy Equation:(Buzzov*en ± Eyehategod) x the smell of London’s dirtiest basement
URLs: Dopefight on //

Thrash Hits Verdict:
Britain feels like its had a bit of a resurgence in all things sludge-tinted and doom-scented over the past few years – at least as far as the listening habits of some of us here at Thrash Hits are concerned. Dopefight make us want to forget that we’ve given up smoking and break out the bong out for all-night blaze. [Read more →]

It’s not often we say this – fuck, it’s probably the only time we’ve ever said it – but this weekend London is just Too Damn Metal. Not only are EyeHateGod playing at ULU tomorrow (Oh. Hells. Yes!), but the number of metal events going on this weekend that we actually want to go to (as opposed, y’know, to shitty clubnights full of children listening to shitty punk music) actually exceeds our ability to attend.
