A lot has happened in the world of Black Metal since our resident Black Metal Expert Cheryl Carter’s last column, and there’s never enough room to talk about it all.

Formed after Johnny Hedlund was kicked out of Nihilist (who actually split-up and reformed as Entombed to avoid firing him directly).
Unleashed are credited to be one of the first death metal groups to write songs about Viking/Scandinavian history and heritage instead of more typical subjects like death and gore.
Members also involved in Bajen Death Cult. Read more on Last.fm

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.
