HEY YOU: the Mercury Prize is announcing it’s 2013 winner on Wednesday 30 October 2013. That mean we’re announcing the winner of our COROT-3b Prize too. Don’t know what the COROT-3b Prize is? Well, go click on that link. Everyone up to speed? Good. You’ve got mere hours left to cast your vote, so we figured we’d use this week’s Sunday Slaylist to not only remind you of who’s up for the prize, and to prompt any Johnny-come-lately types to CAST THEIR VOTES NOW.

Yes, yes, yes, the Mercury Prize doesn’t have any metal in it. Yes, yes, yes, it doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things. Yes, yes, yes, that hasn’t stopped us resurrecting the COROT-3b Prize to celebrate a dozen great British metal albums from the last 12 months. Go click that link if you need an explanation why we called that. Everyone else: go click the “Read More” link and go listen to our Sunday Spotify Slaylist of this year’s COROT-3b nominees.

This weekend would’ve been the fifth Hevy Festival…but as you no doubt know by now, the festival was forced to cancel their event this year. They tried to schedule a replacement all-dayer at the Brixton Academy here in London, featuring some of the biggest bands on this year’s (cancelled) bill…but as you also know by now, they had to cancel that too.
It’s not been the best year for Hevy Festival, truth be told.

Ronseal headline does what it says on the tin – it’s been confirmed today that Hevy 2013 won’t be festival in the camping-outside-stages-in-a-field way at all, but rather will take the form of a series of gigs taking place in and around London.
Is Hevy Festival 2013 currently without a site? **UPDATED** (They say they do, they just can’t tell you where yet)

It seems as though Hevy Festival
may – temporarily at least – be without a venue is moving to a new location for 2013. The Aspinall Foundation, the charity that operates Port Lympne Wild Animal Park where the festival has taken place for the last three years – have taken a nearly unprecedented step of issuing a statement saying the festival will not be taking place at the park again this year.
