Record Store Day is once again looming – this weekend, music collector nerds of all shapes and sizes will descend upon their local record shops to buy over-priced and often not-very-good limited edition releases to mark the occasion. However, some of the stuff being put out for Record Store Day is bloody brilliant, and the New Heavy Sounds Vol.3 compilation – featuring a load of killer new tracks from a whole load of their bands – is one of those, hence why it’s our pick for If You Buy One Thing This Week.
There are four bands named Throne.
1.) Throne is a symphonic black/death metal band from Memphis, Tennessee.
2.) Throne is a three piece doom/stoner metal band from East London. They make slow, riff-laden facemelters.
3.) Throne is a Finnish one man project.
Simo Ruotsalainen - All instruments (Moukka, Raped gargoyle, NOMA)
4.) tHrOne has three members that comprise tHrOnE. One of the most unique aspects of the band, besides their music, is that they are all related to each other. Read more on Last.fm
Throne on Thrash Hits

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.

This week, the magnificent Temples Festival sold out of weekend tickets. For a new festival to do this in their opening year is pretty damn impressive, and speaks volumes for just how strong Temples Festival’s line-up curation has been. It also makes for a goddamn murderously good Sunday Slaylist.

New Heavy Sounds is a label we’ve been meaning to feature as part of our label profile for some time now. Quite literally three-quarters of the label’s roster have appeared in our Future Hits column at some point – that, ladies and gentlemen, is a very impressive hit-rate. We caught up with one half of the label’s co-flunders, Ged Murphy, to discuss the ins and outs of being a label specialising in new, up-and-coming British bands.

South By Southwest is a wonderful place where Foo Fighters play on the patio of a bar and Kvelertak play five shows in three days and we see them all by dumb luck. While the big picture says SXSW is about bands for radio, the underground says it’s all about metal. That’s why the pizza shop on 6th St is called Hoek’s Death Metal Pizza and has a dozen metal bands playing in its backyard every day. There are also some excellent bands flying over to Austin from the UK. Here’s a rundown of the seven that we could find.

Yet another reason you need to come to Thrash Hits Presents 03: Throne are using it as the launch party for their new 7″
November 12th, 2012
As if you needed yet another reason to come along to the third Thrash Hits Presents… night at the end of the month, the guys in Throne have decided they’re going to use the gig as the launch party for their brand spanking-new double A-side 7″.

With Bloodstock Open Air 2012 mere days away, Hugh invited Thrash Hits’ in-house black metal afficionado, Tom Dare, into the studio to break down who we think will be the big hits and misses of the UK’s trvest, kvltest, outdoor Summer festival. We also gave props out to Randy Blythe showing more class in his statement after being released from prison than 90% of the shoddy reporting surrounding his arrest, as well giving a break down of the four bands playing Thrash Hits Presents…no.3 at the Old Blue Last in November.
We still want your feedback on this one, so please take a moment to send us your thoughts via email, by posting a comment down below, or by bellowing at us over Facebook or Twitter. And for Satan’s sake, go and subscribe to our podcast over on iTunes.

Thrash Hits verdict: We like Throne so much that we’re putting them on the bill of the third Thrash Hits Presents… night later this year. When we first saw them supporting Ancient VVisdom earlier this year, we just knew that the next time we got our act together into organising a gig, Throne’s big, fuzzy, tidal-wave-crush of riffs would have a place on the bill. If our booking them isn’t enough of a recommendation on its own as to why you should check them out ASAP, here’s a chat we had with the band after that AVV show.
