While only in it’s third year, Hevy Music Festival has already established itself as the leading outdoor festival in the UK when it comes to hardcore. We sent some of our best men down to cover it – Tomas Doyle to handle the words, and Ben Gibson to sort out our pictures – and even though Friday was the “short” day of the festival, they still managed to get up to mischief…
Revoker nod to heavy metal’s past, while fueling the flame of its future.
On their Roadrunner Records debut, REVENGE FOR THE RUTHLESS, the Welsh quartet fuse dangerous thrash riffs to infectious and timeless choruses, which isn’t so easy to do in the metal sphere. Songs like “Stay Down” rise with anthemic hooks, while “Psychoville” converges its path of bruising melodies and unpredictable vocals. The United Kingdom has produced some of hard rock and heavy metal’s most beloved acts Read more on Last.fm
Revoker on Thrash Hits
July 27th, 2011
Is there anything better than a Thrash Hits Festival Splash Page? Yeah, loads of things but you won’t find the best online festival coverage on any of them. You’ll find that right here.
All our work from Sonisphere Festival 2011 is going be linked to from this page (eventually), so give it a bookmark or just don’t close it, because it’s all you’re going to need. Individual band coverage (interviews, photos, setlists and some tiny reviews), rumours, drinking games, stage times, dodgy photos of as many sexy ladies in various states of safe-for-work undress as we can legitimately get away with? It’s all here.

Lazy equation: (Pantera x Bullet For My Valentine) + White Zombie
Thrash Hits verdict: With crunching, almost industrial guitars and vocals which swerve between Phil Anselmo’s snarl and Matt Tuck’s Welsh-inflected yelps, Revoker remain resolutely metal, but show that they’ve definitely got enough about them to challenge for the top. Signing to Roadrunner Records so early on in their career can only help them become massive. We had a chat to singer/guitarist Jamie Mathias…

In the continued game of one-upmanship that Download and Sonisphere have been engaging in for no good reason, today Download decided to annouce thirty acts. How the hell are we supposed to come up with enough snide and bitchy comments about thirty bloody bands? I ask you.
