It’s time for another Thrash Hits festival splash page – and this time it’s for Hammerfest 2014. All of our coverage from the weekend will be linked to on this here post, so make sure you bookmark it as it’s all you’re going to need. Yep. That means individual band coverage (photos, setlists and so on), all the dodgy rumours and awful gossip our team overhears, and every single photo of Wales-based debauchery that Gary Wolstenholme and Jenn McCambridge snap will be here.
Soilwork is a Swedish melodic death metal band formed in late 1995, originally under the name Inferior Breed in Helsingborg, Sweden. In 1996, they changed their name to Soilwork to better fit their new sound. Their unique sound is a fusion of the classic Gothenburg metal sound with power-groove riffs of late 1970s, early 1980s British, and European metal, but in their most recent albums they have also introduced elements from American Alternative metal and adopted a more melodic attitude.

Tickets are on sale now from the official Hammerfest website, with the price varying on how many people you want in your room. Get on it now, as with an opening line-up announcement like that, next year’s event is already looking pretty damn tasty.

Thrash Hits .com went to Bloodstock Open Air Festival and hung out backstage. In the canteen. What can we say? We’re hungry, hungry metallers.
A lot of metallers are hungry. Indeed, meat forms an integral part of many a metallers main meal. The question we were asking over the weekend was… “What is the most metal meat?”
Now that’s quite a juicy question and we asked everyone from Soilwork to Ted Maul to the ever-cheery Napalm Death with widely varying responses. Check them all out right here.
