There’s a fine art to writing great rock music. Let’s be honest, there are an awful lot of bands getting it wrong. Sometimes it can almost get too much and the urge to run off and go live in a cave, while taking up a radical new lifestyle, such as listening to Nicki Minaj on repeat, becomes ever more tempting. However every now and then something like this comes along to restore our faith.

There are over 200 artists performing at Reading Festival. Assuming you’re not one of those pricks that goes to a festival just to see the headliners, that’s a hell of a lot of bands you don’t (yet) give a shit about to trawl through in the hope of finding your new love. Plus, you’ve got a job, pubs exist and you don’t even have a tent yet, so time is in short supply. That’s why we exist. We’re here to make sure that you don’t settle on wandering around in a field, blindly hoping to stumble upon greatness but settling on Deaf Havana or, even worse… Mallory Knox. Here are our top tips. Some are new bands and others are just great. Also, there are 12.

Hyro Da Hero is heavy enough for us to feature him on Thrash Hits, right? That’s a rhetorical question, by the way. It wasn’t a request for people to go debate it in the comments or anything. Anyway, he’s got the more-than-excellent Marmozets playing in support of him on his UK tour, and given that we’ve expressed our love of that band on more than one occasion, we figured this was more than enough reason to make sure Gary Wolstenholme was on hand to photograph the whole shebang when it rolled into Sheffield.

2011 end of year best new band thrash hits

We reckon we’re pretty good at finding new bands. Over the past few years we’ve championed Turbowolf, Bastions, Wolves Like Us and loads more before the rest cottoned on. That’s why you probably want to know what new bands we liked the most in 2011.

Maybe some of them will go on to become your favourite band of 2012. Maybe you already love them and this just reinforces the fact that you’re awesome. (If so, come and join us.) Just give the bands a listen. They’re worth it.

Thrash Hits Verdict:
At Hevy Festival we pointed out how “slick and frighteningly young” the “math-pop upstarts” are. An obvious comparison would be to the original female-fronted Yorkshire spazz-core quintet, Rolo Tomassi so we made that as well. It might be time for the slightly more tuneful Marmozets to steal some thunder.
