It feels like the debut album from Arcane Roots has been a long time coming. We mean a long, long, long time coming. It has been literally years since we first started hearing people talk up this band, but their debut only saw a release this week. And we’ve got 5 copies of it to give away, courtesy of the band’s label, PIAS Recordings.

We like The Armed. We like them a lot. We like how they give away free, lossless digital versions of all their music just because they want to. We love that they do this so their music can be unrestrained by anything even slightly approaching commercial concerns. We love that they sound like the angriest bits of The Dillinger Escape Plan roaring bitter fury at a tornado. We like The Armed so much that we bought extra copies of the sexy 7-inch vinyl version of their latest EP, Spreading Joy, for the express purpose of giving them away to YOU.
WIN! A pair of tickets to the Jägermeister ‘Ice Cold in Bournemouth’ show, ft. Coheed and Cambria, Feed The Rhino and Black Spiders

Korn are great, aren’t they? Well, they just became even more great because they’ve given us a couple of DVDs to give away. The DVD in question is a live DVD and it was shot in Hollywood on their The Path of Totality tour. All you have to do to win one is enter the competition. We’ll be in touch via email if you’ve won. That’s easy enough, isn’t it? Scroll down, compadre.

Like every other British rock and metal website in existence right now, we’ve got a pair of tickets for Bloodstock Open Air to give away to one of our readers. Notice we didn’t say “one lucky reader”, or any variation thereof? That’s because winning Thrash Hits’ competition has absolutely sod all to do with luck.

Arcane Roots are the kind of band you should like if you like the clever-clever bits of Biffy Clyro (but not the nice-nice bits about Biffy Clyro) combined with the sharper bits of Muse (without the vibrato histrionics that annoy us about Muse). They’ve recently signed to PIAS, and next month they’re put out a mini album by the name of Left Fire. And to celebrate that fact, they’ve given us a pair of tickets to give away to their Kerrang! Awards Show gig at the Camden Barfly on 05 June 2012. You’d have to be pretty lazy not to click the ‘Read More’ button and to enter our competition to win them. Unless you live somewhere that isn’t near London, we suppose.
Whatever. It’s free gig tickets. Stop complaining and enter the competition!
