Betraying The Martyrs at Breakout Festival 2014 by Mike Burnell Thrash Hits

Wait, did we say outdoor festival season had ended with Reading and Leeds? Well, we were wrong. A whole truckload of bands descended upon Brighton Racecourse last weekend for Breakout Festival. We sent our newest snapper, Mike Burnell, down to shoot the best and the brightest for Thrash Hits.

Once upon a time (well, 2007) there were a lot of people tipping Yorkshire’s Glamour Of The Kill for big things. In a world where the likes of Trivium, Bullet For My Valentine and Avenged Sevenfold were all being championed as the shining beacons that would lead metal into a brighter tomorrow, GOTK could have become the missing part in a whole new Big Four. Alas, that didn’t happen and while they’ve kept plugging away their following has remained modest to say the least. Yet in a world where the aforementioned BFMV are global straddling superstars and A7X have recently scored a UK number one album surely winning over new fans should now be a piece of cake for GOTK, right?

Live: Motionless in White @ London Kentish Town Forum – 21 September 2013

Motionless in White band promo photo thrash hits 2013

The triple threat of Motionless in White, The Defiled and Glamour of the Kill might give some people nightmares about bad haircuts and too much make-up, but for others it’s a goth-fuelled dream. Those people were all in Kentish Town watching the gig with Gavin Lloyd, who’s also bang up for dreaming about goths. And then writing about them.

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.

Bloody heck, that’s an awful lot of new bands to add all at once. Not that we’re complaining, mind you – the less inane line-up announcement news pieces we have to try to find new and inventive intros to write for is always a welcome development here at Thrash Hits. You can check the full list of additions to the Download Festival 2013 line-up after the jump.

Sonisphere Festival 2011: Interviews, Photos, Setlists – it’s all here

Is there anything better than a Thrash Hits Festival Splash Page? Yeah, loads of things but you won’t find the best online festival coverage on any of them. You’ll find that right here.

All our work from Sonisphere Festival 2011 is going be linked to from this page (eventually), so give it a bookmark or just don’t close it, because it’s all you’re going to need. Individual band coverage (interviews, photos, setlists and some tiny reviews), rumours, drinking games, stage times, dodgy photos of as many sexy ladies in various states of safe-for-work undress as we can legitimately get away with? It’s all here.

Sonisphere Festival 2011: Glamour Of The Kill @ Bohemia Stage – Friday, 08 July 2011

We know we’ve been talking a lot about funerals during our backstage interviews at Sonisphere Festival 2011, but we weren’t expecting Glamour Of The Kill to have planned their own send-off in quite so much detail. Whiskey shots and high-5s next to an open coffin? Count us in – sounds a hell of a lot more fun than some birthday parties we’ve been to.

by Andy Parker

We’re only into the second month of the year and I already have a list of things that’ve really gotten on my tits in 2011:

  • That agonising wait between December’s and January’s pay cheque.
  • Big Fat Gypsy Weddings, because all my friends think it is amazing and I don’t get it and that makes me feel uncomfortable and oddly middle-class.
  • Vocalists who cannot shut the fuck up and have to harmonise when they have nothing better to do.

Which is where Glamour Of The Kill come in. A band who, for the last few years, have been tightening their trousers, dying the shit out of their Toni & Guy coiffed hair-dos, and being pushed around the press to seemingly little or no avail.

Download Festival announces 30 new bands; internet collapses under the weight of forum-bitching

April 12th, 2010

In the continued game of one-upmanship that Download and Sonisphere have been engaging in for no good reason, today Download decided to annouce thirty acts. How the hell are we supposed to come up with enough snide and bitchy comments about thirty bloody bands? I ask you.
