Seagraves on Thrash Hits
February 22nd, 2013
In our ongoing mission to shout about some of our favourite-but-unappreciated labels in the UK, it was inevitable that our wandering eye would end up focussing on Nottingham. While also the birthplace of Earache Records, it’s certainly not the only label dealing in heavy music that has its roots in the city – one other being Witch Hunter Records. Several of our past Future Hits subjects – including Limb, End Reign, and Prelude To The Hunt – have had releases on the label, which specialises in the kind of nasty underground sludge, doom and hardcore that we like best, so it was inevitable we’d end up getting in contact with the label founder, Chris Kaye, to get the inside scoop on his gloriously nasty little label.
