Bloody hell, there’s an awful lot of nonsense on the Reading and Leeds 2014 festival line-up, isn’t there? I mean, we know this isn’t a bona fide heavy music festival like Download and Sonisphere, but sweet flippin’ Jesus is there some pony stinking up the bill this year. That’s because it’s enormous – literally 100s of bands – but, as such, there are also a whole load of bloody excellent bands and this week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist cuts through all that and brings you the very best of the heavy stuff that you can find if you sniff around the schedule a little bit.
Hailing from Watford, UK, the self-proclaimed saviours of hardcore, The Hell. You dick. Read more on Last.fm
The Hell on Thrash Hits
July 20th, 2014
There’s just over a month to go until Hevy Festival 2014 marks the festival’s return to Port Lympne Wild Animal Park down in Kent. After – let’s be honest, a fairly disasterous turn of events in 2013 that saw the festival cancelling and taking a year off – the festival is back, with a new focus and energy behind it. It might not have the size or chequebook to match Download or Sonisphere, but the return of Hevy to the UK festival calendar is definitely something we can get behind – which is why this week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist is all about their 2014 line-up.

For those unaware The Hell first emerged at the tail end of last year. An album of snotty, down tuned, aggro punk loaded with swearing released for free. Tongues soon started wagging as to who these mystery men actually were, the addition of a few familiar faces on the album cover only bolstered interest, and they soon became the hype band of the month, with various industry folk tweeting hyperbole over them.

Yes, the one-off London Christmas gigs are being foisted upon us already. The first one through the gates is the SGR Artist Management Christmas Feast on 19 December 2013 at The Borderline and isn’t the flyer a mighty fine piece of work?
From the ridiculous to the downright self-effacing in its descriptions, it’s a flyer as rich and enticing as any Toby carvery and with The Hell, Palm Reader, Feed The Rhino, TRC and the eponymous Gallows bassist in town, The Crobar is going to be one hell of a beautiful mess that evening.
Buy tickets here and then come hang in the Crobar with us after. Messy Christmas?

Thrash Hits verdict: It was back in June that we stumbled across the Facebook page for The Hell. A couple of hardcore luminaries had clicked like on this band page and it had no information and single figures of people were on it at the time. It was shrouded in mystery. We knew they had a European booking agent but he himself didn’t know who was in the band. He was asking us about them and he was working with The Hell. Then, at the start of July, they released one song with a bold proclamation that an album would be released the following week. It’s The (motherfucking) Hell, you dick.
