Live: Hammerfest IV – The Hammer of Thor – 16 March 2012

March 22nd, 2012

Anthrax at Hammerfest 2012 by Gary Wolstenholme Thrash Hits

With (hopefully) a painful and debilitating hangover in tow, we forced David Keevill back out into the drinking pits of Hammerfest to report on Day 2 – the first full day of the festival. Little did we realise at the time that one of the band he would see would result in him getting “spermy pants”. Jeesh….

Sunday Slaylist: Hammerfest IV – The Hammer of Thor

March 11th, 2012

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.

Evile’s rise to the top of the so-called “thrash revival” has been well charted by now, and you don’t need us to tell you about how Huddersfield’s finest have rapidly become a dearly loved figure within British metal. But thrash’s new wave has its detractors as well – we’ve all got plenty of Slayer and Exodus records by now, and accusations that some of the latest clutch of shredders haven’t necessarily done much that’s genuinely new or distinct have some merit, including some from right here. Have Evile finally managed to record an album to shut those dissenting voices up?

This week on Thrash Hits…

February 5th, 2010

It’s been a bit of a belter this week, so for anyone who’d been a bit slack and missed anything, here’s what we’ve been getting up to:

Next week: expect interviews with Baroness, as well as Adrian and Anders from the sadly no-longer-with-us At The Gates. Oh, and there’ll be some sweeeeet video action with the smokin’ hot Doris ‘Thunder Tears’ Yeh of Chthonic as well….

A to Z of the Noughties: Avenged Sevenfold to Iron Maiden

November 5th, 2009

Where were you on the night before the dawn of the New Millennium? Jon Kerr was getting a pit going in Jilly’s Rockworld, Manchester. We’ve asked him to summarise the ten years since then in all things metal in a handy A to Z

Avenged Sevenfold
Not just any Californian metalcore outfit, this lot. A7X have produced a wide range of sounds across their four albums and have developed a global fanbase.
