Let the record show it and let it show it clearly: the opening track on Emmure’s new album Eternal Enemies was due to be called ‘Bring A Gun To School‘. But, after some (understandable) backlash, on the final version of the Connecticut deathcore quintet ‘s sixth studio effort it is simply listed as ‘(Untitled)’. The question is left begging then – which one is it guys? Are you edgy controversialists who don’t give a mother fuck what people think, or the sort of band who coquettishly say Stuff That Will Get People’s Backs Up only to run away screaming when – surprise surprise – it gets people’s backs up. It’s a universal truth: the only thing worse than a shit-stirrer is a coward without the guts to stand by their shit-stirring ways.

Do you have to shout it out loud, and then say they “tour 2013” bit in your normal voice? That’s how we do it when we read it in our internal monologue.

Whatever. Come listen to our Sunday Spotify Slaylist of this year’s tour line-up.

Some of us here at Thrash Hits are card-carrying members of the #NoFunClub. Thankfully, Tom ‘You Are Not Better Than Pop Music‘ Doyle isn’t one of them. That’s why we sent him to watch Emmure, Chelsea Grin and Atilla when The Mosh Lives tour came to London last week.

Interview: Emmure’s Frankie Palmeri on ex-band members, internet haters, and bangover cures.

May 18th, 2012

When Emmure’s PR emailed us and offered us an interview, we umm-ed and ahhh-ed over whether to take them up on the offer. After all, on the one hand, we had our carefully maintained rep as snobbish internet musical neckbeards to maintain, and interviewing a band like Emmure runs pretty contrary to the conditions of our membership of the No Fun Club. On the other hand, the impish pricks among us couldn’t resist the opportunity to metaphorically poke the bollocks of the band’s often controversial frontman, Frankie Palmeri, in the hope he’d say something controversial.

Everyone loves free stuff. We love free stuff. It’s the incentive that keeps us posting snide and snarky missives on the internet, after all. Sometimes though, people want us to give you free stuff though – as is the case with the guys and gals over at Victory Records, who’ve given us a big ol’ bag of CDs and t-shirts to give away to our readers.
