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.

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.

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.
