DripBack

DripBack image provided by Last.fm Biography from Last.fm

Born from a basic desire to have an excuse to hang out more often with close friends Ted Maul guitarist Luca G-Drax invited ex-band mate, drummer Hellhog (currently of Pure Negative, ex-Labrat bass wizard Adam Da Rat, and the toxic duo of River Freshney's Lee4 (guitar) and Wez4 (vocals) to start jamming.

Dripback recorded their debut EP 'Inahling The Ashes' in a 48 hour gap in December 2010 with extreme metal wonder-producer 'Russ Russell'. The EP was released June 2011 via Siege Of Amida Records. Read more on Last.fm

Thy Art Is Murder by Ben Gibson Thrash Hits

Is deathcore still a dirty word? Thy Art Is Murder might prefer to call themselves “modern extreme metal”, but whatever label you want to try to pigeonhole them in, seeing them sellout Upstairs at the Garage was a sweaty and violent way to spend a Tuesday night. Hugh Platt went down to handle the words; Ben Gibson risked life, limb, and camera equipment to go down the front and take photos.

6 things we learned watching Thy Art Is Murder in London…

Bloodstock Open Air 2012: DripBack @ Sophie Lancaster Stage – 11 August 2012

DripBack at Bloodstock Open Air 2012 by Jenn McCambridge Thrash Hits

They might’ve started as a doss-about band for various members of a whole host of noisy London-based bands of bastards, but DripBack meant serious business at Bloodstock Open Air 2012. With a new album due before the end of the year, and at least one of the band finding the energy to keep drinking until 5am on Saturday, DripBack are looking more and more like they’ve got the legs to turn into a tasty long-term prospect.

March 23rd, 2012

Skindred at Hammerfest 2012 by Gary Wolstenholme Thrash Hits

Well, he survived – and here’s the final proof. In the last of his three reports from Hammerfest IV, David Keevill pretends he didn’t have a permanent hangover, and reviews Oaf, Cerebral Bore, Mortad, DripBack, Hell, Amon Amarth, and – of course – Saturday night’s headliners, the almighty Skindred.

Sunday Slaylist: Hammerfest IV – The Hammer of Thor

Anthrax 2012 promo photo Thrash Hits

This time next week, our intrepid representatives at Hammerfest IV – The Hammer of Thor, will be slowly trying to recover from a weekend where the level of attention paid to the many heavy metal bands playing is directly (and inversely) proportional to the levels of booze being imbibed by them. How do we know they’ll be getting smashed rather than getting their mosh on? Well, because even if you headline your event with Anthrax and Skindred, we know for a fact that whenever more than one Thrash Hits contributor ends up in the same room at Pontin’s in Prestatyn, someone ends up puking. That’s not us trying to sound like a bunch of lads-on-tour kerrrrayyyzzzyy drunks either – that’s the raw statistics of Hammerfest talking.

In any case, we figured we’d put together a Hammerfest-themed Spotify Slaylist to start getting them in the mood nice and early.

Dripback band promo photo 2011 adam sagir thrash hits

Well, we were just sent the new Dripback video. ‘Kick Out Time’ is two minutes and forty-one seconds of five angry men in a dirty room interspersed with stolen news footage of those ruddy riots. You know Dripback stole the footage though. You know they did. We asked bassist, Adam Da Rat what it was all about…

Whose garage was this filmed in?
“Actually, it was filmed at a squat in South London hence the Sons Of Anarchy style backdrop. Everyone should go to more squat gigs.”
