If you’ve read Thrash Hits for any length of time you will know how much we love Turbowolf. We’ve written about them so much, we’ve even run out of pithy self-deprecating ways to introduce new articles about them where we highlight how big our fandom is for them. Their UK tour kicks off tonight in Nottingham. They are playing seven dates in total. If You Buy One Thing This Week, then you owe it to yourself to make sure that it’s a ticket to this tour.
If You Buy One Thing This Week
November 18th, 2014
As much as If You Buy One Thing This Week is a great excuse to highlight underground releases or things that might have passed by your radar entirely, sometimes a new release with a higher profile comes along that we just have to endorse. Grand Morbid Funeral by Bloodbath, is one such recommendation.

We like to think that If You Buy One Thing This Week has encouraged you to support your favourite artists, and maybe even a few new ones, by actually throwing down some cold hard cash to support the releases we recommend. With that in mind, we really hope you take the time to support this week’s pick for If You Buy One Thing This Week, as while you’ll be getting some kickass tunes by doing so (including one from our old friends, The Gaslight Anthem-member boasting Something About Death Or Dying who are pictured above), you’ll also be helping support The Keep-A-Breast Foundation.

The weather has turned horrible. Autumn is well and truly here. If You Buy One Thing This Week is not going to cheer up any time soon. In fact, we’re going to get even bleaker. This week we’re turning our attention to the new split LP from The Body and Sandworm, and boy, is it a chirpy little number.

For last week’s entry in If You Buy One Thing This Week, we raved about Bloom, the two-song 32+ minute-long EP from OHHMS. We think it must’ve set off something deep down inside whatever bit of our brain makes up our musical tastebuds, as we’ve been riding something of an obsession with super-long songs for the past week. It’s also why we’ve gone for Inter Arma’s latest release, The Cavern, for today’s entry in If You Buy One Thing This Week, clocking in as it does at over 45 minutes for just a single track.

Bloom, the new release from Kents’s OHHMS might just be two tracks long, but it’s two tracks that clock in at a combined 32 minutes and deliver brute force psychedelic post-doom that manages to both feel instantaneous in its vitality and crushing in its depth. It was an easy choice for If You Buy One Thing This Week, for the love of all that’s below make it Bloom by OHHMS.

We’re cheating with our pick for If You Buy One Thing This Week. Swan Songs, the new split EP from long-time Thrash Hits favourites Bastions and French progressive hardcore types Burning Bright. Technically it doesn’t get released until December, but they started taking pre-orders on it last week, and we reckon it’s good enough that it deserves your money right now.

We’ll hold our hands up and admit it – we took our eye off Hang The Bastard. What with line-up changes, mid-career retrospectives, and a series of semi-regular appearances as the powerhouse support act of choice to anyone dabbling in riffs, we foolishly let them slip into the background noise of our mind. More fool us. While we were off paying attention to newer, shinier things, Hang The Bastard were off crafting the best bloody album of their career.

We’re nothing if not suckers for anything that sounds even a little like The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster. Not only do Eighteen Nightmares at the Lux have a similarly ludicrously overlong band name, but they also have that same swathy mix of Cramps-esque creepshow rockabilly darkness that made EMBLD such a long-term Thrash Hits-favourite. It was just what we were looking for as a pick for If You Buy One Thing This Week.

We normally avoid re-releases for If You Buy One Thing This Week if only because there’s so much good new music coming out, it feels like a bit of a cop-out to talk up albums or EPs that have already been banging around for a while though. Amulet – our 112th entry in our Future Hits series – and their Cut The Crap EP is a special case however.
