Baltimore, MD (2007-present)

Hailing from the port city of Baltimore, Maryland comes the war-mammoth known as Trapped Under Ice, who proudly inherit and build upon the mantle of their predecessors Next Step Up and Gut Instinct. Compound this with the sonic territories explored by New York bands such as Crown Of Thornz and Breakdown, and the intent of the outfit becomes obvious—total aural brutality.

Following their inception in 2007, a 5-song demo was quick to follow. Read more on Last.fm

Sunday Slaylist: Hevy Festival 2012

July 29th, 2012

Hevy Festival 2012 Thrash Hits

We were half tempted to make a sports-themed Slaylist this week – what with the Olympics kicking off in our home city of London and all that – but then we realised that other than ‘Running Free’ and a handful of other tracks, we’d really be scraping the barrel when it came to coming up with valid tracks for it. So instead we fell back on an old favourite: the festival Slaylist. Given that Hevy Festival 2012 is a mere five days away, it was the obvious candidate.

Thrash Hits Podcast 1

This week’s podcast has Tom Doyle joinging Hugh back in the Thrash Hits studio, and this week they’re taking a long hard look at the line-up for Hevy Festival 2012. As the UK’s up-and-coming hardcore, punk and rock festival prepares for its fourth year, we’re looking at the headliners, our top picks from lower down the bill, the unusual layout for this year’s festival, as well as baselessly speculating on the potential this young festival upstart has for the future. Oh, and mouthing off about a couple of bands. Y’know – the usual.

Your Demise 2012 promo photo Thrash Hits

Your Demise released their fourth studio album last month, and so obviously they’re out on the road, playing shows in support of it. That’s just what bands do, right? Around the time they released the album in question The Golden Age, a load of kids in New Era caps got butthurt on Tumblr because Your Demise had sold out or something. I guess these fans didn’t really number all that many though, as from what we could tell, these shows were selling out too (but in the good way).

Sunday Slaylist: IT SNOWED!!!111!!

February 5th, 2012

Guess The Snowy Album Cover? Thrash Hits

Look, we’re a bit tired, we’ve foolishly agreed to cook Sunday lunch today, and we still have to trudge down the shops to buy a big slab of meat to cook for it. With much of the UK currently under 2 inches of snow, can you blame us for going with an obvious topic this Sunday? That’s why we’ve gone for the bleedingly obvious choice of a Winter-themed Sunday Slaylist.
