If You Buy One Thing This Week: pre-order the new album from The Armed

April 23rd, 2015

TheArmeduntitledpromophotoThrashHits

We have waited six, long, hard years for a new full length album from The Armed. They are, in our humble opinion, one of the best damn messed-up math/punk/stupid genre-tag-du-jour-core bands in the world today. Sure, they’ve released a nearly-yearly update with their EPs, but as much as we love Common Enemies, Young & Beautiful, Spreading Joy, and their split with Tharsis They, we were always left desperate for more. For over half a damn decade, we’ve been desperate for more.

This week the band announced that long wait was finally over by confirming that the follow-up to 2009’s These Are Lights is coming out on 23 June 2015.

If You JOIN One Thing This Week: Holy Roar Records’ Club(s)

March 24th, 2015

Holy Roar Records Thrash Hits

We started this column with the sole intention of getting you, our dear readers, to buy more music, and to buy more good music at that. And there’s no denying that London-based label Holy Roar Records has been responsible for an absolute shitload of good music over the last nearly-nine years or so. So now that the label has launched a pair of subscription clubs to help you get more of their music quicker, easier, and cheaper…well, we’d be fools not to feature it in this column, wouldn’t we?

If You Buy One Thing This Week: KTHEAT by FACT

If You Buy One Thing This Week, make it KTHEAT by FACT

Our boy in Japan, Adam Graham, is a long-time friend of Thrash Hits. FACT, the band that he provides guitar/vocals/beards for have a new album out, so we’d be pretty shitty if we didn’t reciprocate that friends and make it our pick for If You Buy One Thing This Week. It’s called KTHEAT and it certainly doesn’t hurt matters that it’s a bloody awesome record.

If You Buy One Thing This Week: pre-order Halfway To Hell by Raging Speedhorn

February 17th, 2015

If You Buy One Thing This Week, make it a pre-order of THE NEW SONG BY RAGING SPEEDHORN

We bloody love Raging Speedhorn. After they confirmed of their reformation pretty much exactly a year ago, we made sure that we managed to see them play live three times. They were bloody brilliant every time. The third time was at the Borderline here in London, where the band revealed they were working on new material by slotting a new song, ‘Halfway To Hell’, into their live set. Now the Corby six-piece have confirmed the release of this new song, you can bet your last dollar that this is our pick for If You Buy One Thing This Week.

If You Buy One Thing This Week: Swell by Drug Church

February 10th, 2015

If You Buy One Thing This Week, make it Swell by Drug Church

We’re pretty big marks for anything and everything to do with Self Defense Family, aka the band that End Of A Year became. We’ve espoused the joy that is Overnight Drive, the podcast made by current and former members of the band. And this week, we’re listening an awful lot to Swell, the new EP from SDF frontman Patrick Kindlon’s side-project, Drug Church. We think you ought to be doing just that too.

If You Buy One Thing This Week: And Yet It Moves by Unearth The Kings

If You Buy One Thing This Week, makemit And Yet It Moves by Unearth The Kings

Sometimes we get a bit…iffy about recommending side-projects for something like If You Buy One Thing This Week. Guys from various bands get together, write some killer tracks then….then…nothing. Their other bands take precedence. The dream is dead.

Unearth The Kings is a new outfit from Owen Packard (from earthtone9) Ali Ross (Cars On Fire) and Jason Bowld (Axewound, Pitchshifter), and even if they never release another thing ever, we won’t regret recommending their 3-song debut EP as it is awesome.

If You Buy One Thing This Week: Dormant Heart by Sylosis

January 12th, 2015

Sylosis are one of the bands you don’t pay enough attention to. Shut up, you don’t, and you know it. If You Buy One Thing This Week is your chance to fix that – the band have just released Dormant Heart, which we reckon is their best album to date. It’s shorter than any of their other full-length releases, the band having boiled down their craft to the point that there’s not a shred of filler-flab in the 59 minutes that this record spends clattering you in your aural erogenous zones.

If You Buy One Thing This Week: Formless/Shapeless by Tharsis They

January 5th, 2015

If You Buy One Thing This Week, make it Formless/Shapeless by Tharsis They

We’re kicking off If You Buy One Thing This Week with Tharsis They – a band we first discovered when they put out a split EP with long-time Thrash Hits favourites, The Armed, waaaay back in 2013. The Detroit foursome have just put out Formless/Shapeless, a brand new EP of caustic mathcore that’s well and truly given our post-Xmas fug a right kick up the arse.

You know we don’t muck about with our recommendations for If You Buy One Thing This Week. You know we sure as Hell don’t muck about when it comes to our Albums of the Year list. So unsurprisingly, our final pick for this column this year is that album that topped our list this year – Pallbearer’s incredible second album, Foundations of Burden.
