It’s Reading and Leeds Festivals this weekend. You knew that, right? Well, it’s that fact as to why the BBC Radio 1 Review Show are having a festival special this evening, and they’ve only gone and invited us back on to mouth off about a whole load of new tracks from the bands playing at the festivals this year. Our Deputy Editor, Hugh Platt, is back on as a guest of Edith Bowman alongside Mallory Knox’s Sam Douglas – tune your radio (or more likely, your web browser) in to Radio 1 at 9pm BST to hear his mouth flapping and his opinions leak out all over the airwaves.
Besides being the role of female actress Juliette Lewis in the Oliver Stone film "Natural Born Killers" there is more than one artist with this name (see links in the Wiki sources):
1.) Forming late 2009, Mallory Knox (UK) initially formed as a creative outlet for the 5 members of the band. Collaborating their various influences, Mikey, Sam, Joe, Dave and James set about writing music that they wanted to hear themselves.
After three months of writing, the band began to play shows and establish their name in the local music scene. Read more on Last.fm

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.

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.

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.

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.
