You should know the score about Turbowolf by now. We’ve been hollering their praises since before Thrash Hits was even conceived. Last weekend they debuted a new song – ‘Rabbit’s Foot’ – on the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show.They’ve finally gotten their second album – by the name of Two Hands – lined up to drop early next year. This week they’re tearing up the UK as main support on the first ever big UK tour by those possessors-of-a-UK-number-1-album, Royal Blood. Things are looking pretty damn exciting for team Turbowolf right now.

Being the fully-biased, ‘wolf superfans that we are, we had no shortage of questionsto ask the band’s vocalist Chris Georgiadis and guitarist Andy Ghosh to get the inside scoop on Two Hands.

They’ve been away beavering away on their second album – more on that in an interview coming very soon – so it should come as no surprise that Turbowolf had loads of new material to unleash on their recent UK tour. We sent along fanboy Hugh Platt to watch their sold-out London show and write an entirely biased account of how awesome it was.

December 12th, 2013

2013 thrash hits favourite gigs of the year

Part and parcel of being opinionated music lovers is that we go and experience lots of music in its natural habitat – on a stage – and then we decide how good it was. Some spectacles are so powerful that they evoke emotions strong enough to form memories through the drunkenness. It’s a rarity but that’s why some here have to name several before deciding upon their Favourite Gig of 2013. There is zero reason for you to be reading this but if you’ve read this far, you’ll get at least halfway down before clicking the cross.

April 1st, 2013

The Thrash Hits Podcast 022

We’re at the mercy of modern technology for this episode of the Thrash Hits Podcast – Raz has decamped to the USA for a few weeks for SXSW and some California sunshine, leaving the rest of us here in miserable old England. With possibly the dodgiest Skype connection imaginable, Hugh and Raz discuss how SXSW has changed over the years, as well as speculating on how two very different kinds of hype affect bands – that currently being felt by Ghost (or Ghost BC, if you’re an American) and the kind that surrounds Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats.
