We like The Armed. We like them a lot. We like how they give away free, lossless digital versions of all their music just because they want to. We love that they do this so their music can be unrestrained by anything even slightly approaching commercial concerns. We love that they sound like the angriest bits of The Dillinger Escape Plan roaring bitter fury at a tornado. We like The Armed so much that we bought extra copies of the sexy 7-inch vinyl version of their latest EP, Spreading Joy, for the express purpose of giving them away to YOU.

Thrash Hits on Last.fm

We know we’re damn good at what we do. We’ve got nominated for awards and stuff, so we’re not totally out of our gourd to have that opinion. You probably think we’re at least pretty good at what we do too, otherwise you wouldn’t be here reading this. And the folks over at Last.fm think we’re pretty damn good at what we do too – that’s why they asked us to be the latest entry in their Best of the Blogs feature over in their Last.fm Originals section and to inform the masses of Last.fm users about three bands we’ve been listening to recently – Black Moth, History Of The Hawk (Did we mention that we were hosting History Of The Hawk’s album release show in November, where they’ll be supported by Throne, Empress, and Cult Cinema? And that tickets are a mere £4 in advance? Do your duty, dear readers), and The Armed.

Anyway, go check out our blog for Last.fm here, and while you’re at it, you should go and join the Thrash Hits group on Last.fm to see how you compare to some of our other miscreant readers.

If you’ve been reading Thrash Hits for any length of time now, you’ll know we’ve got a lot of time for The Armed. In case you’re new to these parts, The Armed are DIY-as-fuck, Detroit-based, DEP-associated badasses, who put out all of their releases for free download. Well, DIY is all good, and giving away ALL your music for free is even better, but it doesn’t exactly pay the bills when it comes to recording new material. Which is why The Armed need your help.
