No Rest Until Ruin Thrash Hits

If you’ve read Thrash Hits for any length of time, you’ll know we bloody love The Armed: the loudest, nastiest, most badass band out of Detroit that your poser mates down the pub have never heard of, who’ve released everything they’ve ever recorded as totally free downloads. Well, they’ve only gone and formed themselves a super DIY label, haven’t they? No Rest Until Ruin is now the home of The Armed, Old Gods, and Nice Hooves – and you’d be wise to get familiar with those bands if you’re not already. We dropped an email to Tony Wolski, one of the men behind the label, to find out what’s been stirring in Michigan these last few months…  [Read more →]

Hands up! How many of you Dillinger Escape Plan aficionados realised that, eighteen months prior to his discreet tip-toe out of the fold, guitarist Jeff Tuttle was fronting another band? Yes, they even released a self-titled EP in 2011 which largely went unnoticed to pretty much anyone outside of Detroit (well, anyone who doesn’t read Thrash Hits, at any rate).

Top 6: Reasons we’re not (too) sad that Jeff Tuttle has left The Dillinger Escape Plan

August 18th, 2012

Jeff Tuttle from The Dillinger Escape Plan by Ben Gibson Thrash Hits

Okay. That blog title is a massive piece of misdirection. When the news came in yesterday that Jeff Tuttle had decided to part ways with The Dillinger Escape Plan, we were really bummed out. We frickin’ love DEP, and we frickin’ love what Tuttle brought to the band. Although he didn’t appear on Ire Works, Tuttle had been in the band since they started touring that release, and his contributions to 2010’s Option Paralysis – which was Thrash Hits’ Album of 2010 – can’t be understated either.

However, rather than despair that a member of our favourite bands has decided to leave, we’re giving this one a positive spin. Which is why we’ve gone and put together….

Six we’re not (too) sad that Jeff Tuttle has left The Dillinger Escape Plan:

Who is the Best New Band of 2011?

December 19th, 2011

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.

Remember Old Gods? The new side-project band featuring members of The Armed and Heads Will Roll, and fronted by Jeff Tuttle from The Dillinger Escape Plan? We featured them as a Future Hits the other week, because we found ourselves rubbing our thighs in premature excitement purely on the strength on their live bootleg.

Well, the band are offering up their debut EP FOR FREE. All you have to do is head on over to their bandcamp page, hand over your email address and bingo – they’ll send you a link to download their self-titled debut EP. Be warned – it’s noisy as f**k. Be warned – it will kick your ass.

**UPDATE** – TOO LATE. So many people downloaded Old Gods’ EP that they’ve now run out of free downloads. You’ll have to shell out $5 if you want it now. Serves you right for not following Thrash Hits more closely!

Thrash Hits Verdict:
We were idly web-stalking The Armed, our favourite bunch of Detroit degenerates, when we stumbled across Old Gods. A side-project of The Armed’s drummer, Tony Wolski, as well as that of Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Jeff Tuttle, Old Gods is a nut-mad, furious slab of noise-punk. We’ve heard some rough mixes by the band and, well, wow. It’s gonna scorch your ears till they’re nothing by charred lumps of dead flesh hanging off the side of your melted face.

We decided we needed the inside scoop on this new bunch of noise-worshippers, so we dropped Jeff Tuttle an email to find out what the score was. His answers make for some interesting reading – just so long as you take some of Jeff’s answers with a little pinch of salt….
