January 5th, 2011

Ho, Ho, Hobags. Yeah, that’s not the turkey we’re actually talking about here. That’s a country up there; a country that you never really think about bordering Iran and Georgia or being named after a fat, ugly bird, yet still does and is.

We’re actually talking about the fat, ugly bird itself. We’ve been talking about said bird for the past few weeks. In fact, we’ve been asking loads of bands whether they prefer Leg Or Breast in our annual Season’s Bleedings (hence the funny title, yeah?) and the results are in. Oh god, they’re in.

Season’s Bleedings 2010-2011: Turbogeist

January 4th, 2011

We saw Turbogeist play loads of times in 2010. We reckon we’ll probably see them loads more in 2011. It only made sense to ask Luis Felber and Jimmy Jagger stuff about Christmas, smelly bassists and sucking cock.

Season’s Bleedings 2010-2011: Lady Starlight

December 15th, 2010

The main support act on Lady Gaga’s UK tour might not be the obvious choice to be featured on Thrash Hits but when you think about a New Yorker playing heavy metal to 20,000 unsuspecting pop fans every night for a month, you reassess. This is Lady Starlight and we forgot to ask her about legs and breasts

Season’s Bleedings 2010-2011: White Wizzard

December 10th, 2010

We’ve asked a shit-ton of  people from the world of heavy metal all sorts of old nonsense about Christmas. You give a shit, right? First up – Peter Ellis, (current) vocalist in White Wizzard.

Do you have any particular or unusual Christmas traditions?
Not any more but when I was a kid I would always go and sing Christmas carols door to door on Christmas and New Year’s eve every year. It’s a big tradition in Greece. Kids go out from the early hours of the morning on these two days and sing Christmas songs door to door for sweets or pocket money. I used to make a ton of money every Christmas doing that since people would usually give me more money that most kids because I had a good voice and I was doing it well – some of those kids were awful!
