It’s just a few short weeks away now – Damnation Festival 2013 is (once again) going to be the heavy music event of the Winter here in the UK. We’re going to be heading up to Leeds University in force come 02 November, but until then, we’ve put together a Sunday Spotify Slaylist to hype us up for what’s (once again) one of the best one-dayer metal fest line-ups the UK has ever seen.

When we first heard of Church Of Fuck, we had a bit of chuckle. Then we looked at what kind of records they were releasing – dirty, ugly, crusty grind and metal, including several who we’ve raved about in the past – we stopped chuckling and just started grinning. A big, fat, these-bands-are-heavy-and-evil-and-we-love-it kind of grin. And once we’d gotten over that, we realised that Church Of Fuck was the perfect label for us to bring back out long, long, long-neglected Label Profile column. We dropped an line to Oliver Goodland, the man in charge, to get the inside story on the label so far…

With all the brouhaha regarding summer outdoor festivals, we somewhat neglected a springtime indoor one that’s taking place on our very doorstep – DesertFest. Today is the third and final day of the first London incarnation of the festival, where more than 50 stoner, doom, spacerock and sludge bands have been giving the foundations of Camden Town a solid shake-up. If – like us – you had to miss this year’s festival, you can at least console yourself with the Spotify Slaylist we’ve made in the festival’s honour.

Our good friends, When Planets Collide, are putting on their first show of 2012 tomorrow night, and boy, have they cranked up a killer line-up to blast away any remaining post-Xmas malaise you might still be feeling. Slabdragger, Iron Witch, Gouranga, Steak, XII Boar, Sea Bastard and Wiht will be dealing out stoner / doom / sludge / evil noise from 7pm at the Brixton Windmill, all for the satisfyingly budget-price cost of just £6 a ticket.
What else could you possibly be doing tomorrow night that gives you that much bang for that little buck? Don’t be THAT guy. Y’know, the loser who stayed at home to watch Casualty. Come out and CRUSH.

Sounds Like: Filthy fucking riffs and graveyard bong hits.
Thrash Hits verdict: When we went to see Singapore grind maestros, Wormrot, play live at the OBL earlier this year, we had both our socks and shoes blown off by one of the support bands – South London riff renegades, Slabdragger. We dropped them an email about being the subject of a Future Hits, and a couple of months later they got back to us. We guess they smoke an awful lot of weed.
