Sunday Slaylist: Hevy Festival 2014

July 20th, 2014

Hevy Festival 2014 Sunday Slaylist Thrash Hits

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.

TRC, Feed The Rhino, Palm Reader and The Hell head up tasty Christmas 2013 gig

October 2nd, 2013

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?

SGR christmas feast menu final feed the rhino the hell palm reader trc borderline thrash hits

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?

TH-ON-MIXCLOUD-010

Gavin Lloyd joins us again for this week’s Cloudcast, where we forgo talking about tours and gigs to just talk about records coming out this week, starting off with some post-UKSWELL (end us now, we have become Those Guys who just make up genres), and swinging all the way through to tough-guy nu-metalcore and ending with a bit of classic grunge. Yep.

Album: TRC – Nation

by Tomas Doyle

In 2003 two very important albums came out. Future Download headliners Avenged Sevenfold brought out Waking The Fallen, the record that stuck their flag firmly in the ground in the UK, and Dylan Mills, better known as Dizzee Rascal, released Boy In Da Corner. While Waking…is now recognised as a turning point for metalcore, it was the teenage rapper from Bow who won that year’s Mercury Prize for an album which took UK Garage’s dancefloor ready template and gave it an unflinchingly aggressive MC driven slant. Violence, Sex, an impenetrable “fuck you” attitude – these were Dizzee’s lyrical calling cards. A decade on and TRC’s Nation is thick with the influence of only one of these albums. And that – beyond anything else – is why so many people in the rock fraternity refuse to pay the Rap/Hardcore sextet the credit they deserve.

GREATEST HITS OF 2012 no.3: Publicly calling out TRC over their video to ‘Temptation’

December 19th, 2012

TRC Temptation Loop Thrash Hits

There has only been one instance in the near-five year history of Thrash Hits that we’ve hesitated before clicking the ‘Publish’ button out of fear for our physical safety. And that was earlier this year, when Hugh Platt wrote a ‘Dear John…’ letter to TRC, explaining why he wouldn’t be writing about them anymore after witnessing their then-latest promo video for ‘Temptation’. Mainly because he was scared one of TRC would uppercut his head clean off his shoulders backstage at Download Festival or something like that.

Dear TRC, I think we need to have a little talk about our “relationship” in light of your video to ‘Temptation’

February 15th, 2012

In the spirit of the “Dear John letter” concept, one of our writers just had to get something off his chest (following several minutes of dumbfoundedness) after watching the mesmeric new video from TRC. Warning: This post contains a TRC video.

Dear TRC,

I’m terribly sorry that I’ve had to do this through a letter. I couldn’t bear to make a scene in public. Also, I’m a physical coward and I think you might actually punch me in my wimpy, middle-class liberal face. I know we could never describe our “relationship” as being that a close one, but this afternoon I saw your promo video for ‘Temptation’, I thought it best we make a clean break of it before it develops any further.
