Sunday Slaylist: Hevy Festival 2014

July 20th, 2014

Hevy Festival 2014 Sunday Slaylist Thrash Hits

There’s just over a month to go until Hevy Festival 2014 marks the festival’s return to Port Lympne Wild Animal Park down in Kent. After – let’s be honest, a fairly disasterous turn of events in 2013 that saw the festival cancelling and taking a year off – the festival is back, with a new focus and energy behind it. It might not have the size or chequebook to match Download or Sonisphere, but the return of Hevy to the UK festival calendar is definitely something we can get behind – which is why this week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist is all about their 2014 line-up.

We all know that the days of “being in a band” going hand in hand with “being a rich and successful rock star” are long gone. Sure, some bands get bigger and reach arena-filling levels, but far more bands hit their glass ceiling at much smaller-sized venue levels. Despite earning themselves a stellar reputation as a ferocious live act and amassing a solid fan base off the back of it, when Feed The Rhino released their second album The Burning Red left many fans cold. It was up for debate whether the band had reached their peak, and it’s up to new album The Sorrow and The Sound to set the record straight.

Thrash Hits’ Favourite Gigs of 2013

December 12th, 2013

2013 thrash hits favourite gigs of the year

Part and parcel of being opinionated music lovers is that we go and experience lots of music in its natural habitat – on a stage – and then we decide how good it was. Some spectacles are so powerful that they evoke emotions strong enough to form memories through the drunkenness. It’s a rarity but that’s why some here have to name several before deciding upon their Favourite Gig of 2013. There is zero reason for you to be reading this but if you’ve read this far, you’ll get at least halfway down before clicking the cross.

TRC, Feed The Rhino, Palm Reader and The Hell head up tasty Christmas 2013 gig

October 2nd, 2013

Yes, the one-off London Christmas gigs are being foisted upon us already. The first one through the gates is the SGR Artist Management Christmas Feast on 19 December 2013 at The Borderline and isn’t the flyer a mighty fine piece of work?

From the ridiculous to the downright self-effacing in its descriptions, it’s a flyer as rich and enticing as any Toby carvery and with The Hell, Palm Reader, Feed The Rhino, TRC and the eponymous Gallows bassist in town, The Crobar is going to be one hell of a beautiful mess that evening.

Buy tickets here and then come hang in the Crobar with us after. Messy Christmas?

Sunday Slaylist: Burn Out Festival 2013

July 7th, 2013

Burn Out Festival Slaylist Thrash Hits

A few years ago, the UK festival scene kind of imploded. Industry experts said there were just too many events trying to compete for the same slices of pie – there was only so many festivals that punters could afford to go to. Well, the situation has changed a bit since then, with smaller, more localised festivals popping up to fill the void left by the absence of some of major players in the festival circuit.

Step forward Burn Out Festival.
