Take a good look at the artwork for Gnarwolves’ first full-length record (click the Read More tag below, yeah?). If you’ve seen a worse album cover this year then please let me know. A mountain of skateboards, a garish shade of green and a font that could’ve been lifted from a Goosebumps novel; it’s pretty much exactly what your parents picture when they think of punk. But as bad as it may be, it’s a fitting representation of the Gnarwolves circus, which has probably rolled into your town at some point over the past of couple of years.

Sunday Slaylist: Reading & Leeds Festival 2014

August 10th, 2014

ReadingLeedsSundaySpotifySlaylistThrashHits

Bloody hell, there’s an awful lot of nonsense on the Reading and Leeds 2014 festival line-up, isn’t there? I mean, we know this isn’t a bona fide heavy music festival like Download and Sonisphere, but sweet flippin’ Jesus is there some pony stinking up the bill this year. That’s because it’s enormous – literally 100s of bands – but, as such, there are also a whole load of bloody excellent bands and this week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist cuts through all that and brings you the very best of the heavy stuff that you can find if you sniff around the schedule a little bit.

Reading & Leeds Festival 2013 Thrash Hits

With the August Bank Holiday weekend rapidly approaching, Reading & Leeds Festivals are once again upon us. As with every year, Reading & Leeds have a bit fat dollop of heaviness in among the landfill indie, so for this week’s Sunday Slaylist we’ve put together a Spotify playlist of the hardest and heaviest from their 2013 line-ups.

GREATEST HITS OF 2012 no.6: Thrash Hits invades the Radio 1 Review Show

December 20th, 2012

BBC Radio 1 Review Show Edith Bowman Mike Duce Lower Than Atlantis Hugh Platt Thrash Hits

2012 was the year we went legit. Well, not really, but it was the year that we got to pull out Ron Burgandy’s “I’m kind of a big deal” attitude as BBC Radio 1 called us up and asked if we wanted to take part in the Radio 1 Review Show. Y’know – sharing our expert opinion on rock music and all that for an hour on national radio. Well, it was the Radio 1 Week of Rock, after all.

Thrash Hits invades the Radio 1 Review Show

BBC Radio 1 Review Show Edith Bowman Mike Duce Lower Than Atlantis Hugh Platt Thrash Hits

In case you’re not one of the literal thousands of people who follow Thrash Hits on Facebook and Twitter, then this might’ve passed you by: last night our Deputy Editor, Hugh Platt, appeared on BBC Radio 1’s Review Show, spouting off about new tracks from Mallory Knox, Gnarwolves, Bullet For My Valentine, and his personal pick – Converge. Why did Edith Bowman invite us in as pundits? Well, it’s all down to Radio 1 Rocks – nearly a week of special programming where the UK’s flagship music broadcaster recognises that there are plenty of us out there who like our music LOUDER and HEAVIER than the average listener.

Although GnarwolvesFun Club tape has been doing the rounds for a few months now, the first introduction to the Brighton band for many will have been via the endearingly shoddy video for the excellent ‘History Is Bunk’. Presumably filmed on an iPhone and set in the confines of a living room, the video features all three members of the band (who don’t even have the decency to remove their hats) gurning into the camera, lip-synching the lyrics and swinging bottles of Stella in the air.

Future Hits 121: Gnarwolves

Gnarwolves
From: Cornwall, UK
Lazy equation: (Cheap Beer + Dillinger Four) x getting high and watching Frozen Planet.

Thrash Hits verdict: Gnarwolves are one of those bands we’ve been eyeing them up for a Future Hits for a while now – we kept getting tipped to them from trusted sources all over the place. We  finally got to see them strut their stuff when we caught them opening the bill at Kerouac’s final show, and yep, our sources were bang on the money. If you’ve got even the slightest inkling for some new punk without an ounce of pretension, Gnarwolves are the band you’re looking for. To that end, we’ve got a review of the band’s CRU EP coming up later this week, but for the time being, here’s what we learned when we caught up with Max, their drummer.

Live & Photos: Kerouac’s last ever show @ London Old Blue Last – 07 July 2012

Kerouac's Final Show by Ben Gibson Thrash Hits

Oh man. It wasn’t a tough decision to head down to the Old Blue Last for Kerouac’s final show, but it sure as Hell was a difficult proposition to review it afterwards and convey even a fraction of how it felt on the night. Hugh Platt handles the words; Ben Gibson is our man with the camera.

Six things we learned when we saw Kerouac’s last EVER show:
