COROT-3b Prize Sunday Slaylist Thrash Hits

Yes, yes, yes, the Mercury Prize doesn’t have any metal in it. Yes, yes, yes, it doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things.

No Metal Mercury Prize 2009 Barclaycard Thrash Hits

Yes, we know the Mercury Prize is just a marketing vehicle for the NME and the Guardian and we’ve genuinely given up complaining about rock and metal not being included in there – even as a token gesture, like they occasionally do with avant garde and jazz artists – but it’s a bloody good excuse to have a little celebration of the excellent British music that has been released over the past year.

Sunday Slaylist: Hevy Festival 2013 – what might’ve been…

August 4th, 2013

Hevy 2013 cancelled Thrash Hits

This weekend would’ve been the fifth Hevy Festival…but as you no doubt know by now, the festival was forced to cancel their event this year. They tried to schedule a replacement all-dayer at the Brixton Academy here in London, featuring some of the biggest bands on this year’s (cancelled) bill…but as you also know by now, they had to cancel that too.

It’s not been the best year for Hevy Festival, truth be told.

Being a hardcore fan can have its fair share of hardships. Worrying that you might pull a muscle while hardcore dancing. The ever-growing pile of TDON and Purgatory Records t-shirts you have to wash and iron. Not to mention how exhausting listening to the likes of Brutality Will Prevail all the time is, and how hard enjoying a Cornetto on the beach is while listening to Bastions. If only there was something to listen to that was aggressive but didn’t leave you so emotionally drained…well, get ready to turn those tattooed frowns upside down kids, as The Catharsis are about to release their debut Romance, and it’s a whole lot of fun.
