After just over two months of silence, we’ve brought back our Mixcloud series for a very special seasonal edition. This week’s episode is 50% bona fide heavy music Christmas classics, and 50% awful rock’n'roll Christmas nonsense. We’ll let you decide which tracks fall under which category.

It’s might’ve been lying dormant for several years, but this year we brought the COROT-3b Prize back. Yes, we know that running an “alternative” to the Mercury Prize isn’t original. Yadda yadda yadda. You still want to know who we decided is the winner though, right? Because after discussing and debating the nominees in this edition of the podcast, that’s exactly what Raz and Hugh did.

Another week, another solo Mixcloud show from our deputy editor Hugh – and we’ve gone well and truly global this time around. We open this week’s show with a double-bill of Tangled Talk hardcore, before mixing in some Swedish glam, some Finnish mentalism, some North American riffs, and close with some Antipodean m0sh. Yep, we’re globetrotting this week.

For this week’s Cloudcast, our deputy editor Hugh is going it alone – we’ve got a cut from In Solitude (our pick for If You Buy One Thing This Week), as well as tracks by Soulfly, More Than Conquerors, Baby Godzilla, Conan, and Wet Nuns. Oh, and a track by a little-known Watford punk band called Shockmaster. Apparently, they are so very proud of all their boys.

Gavin Lloyd joins us again for this week’s Cloudcast, where we forgo talking about tours and gigs to just talk about records coming out this week, starting off with some post-UKSWELL (end us now, we have become Those Guys who just make up genres), and swinging all the way through to tough-guy nu-metalcore and ending with a bit of classic grunge. Yep.

On this week’s Cloudcast, we’ve got taster-tracks from four of this week’s best new releases, as well as this week’s Future Hits inductee, Palm, and a song connected to he biggest news story in metal this week: Robb Flynn throwing his toys out the pram at Avenged Sevenfold.
