Thrash Hits TV: Raging Speedhorn – new album EXCLUSIVE!!1!

November 28th, 2014

Ahh, it’s like an early Christmas gift! We’ve made no secret how much we’re fanboys for Raging Speedhorn. We’ve gone on about them so much that they sent us a little video message before they head out on their first UK tour in damn-near nearly a decade kicks off next week. The whole bloody band pipes up to discuss their comeback, their upcoming tour, and – BEST OF ALL – some details about the brand new music coming from the band in 2015.

Yes, WE ARE VERY EXCITED.

Thrash Hits TV: Thy Art Is Murder vs #LinkinNARC

July 12th, 2014

Thy Art Is Murder Download Festival 2014 by Ben Gibson Thrash Hits

When we went to Download Festival 2014, we had planned on asking all the bands what they would do if Linkin Park ratted them out to the cops (not sure what we’re talking about? Here’s a link to Sublime With Rome’s version of what happened when they played a festival with Chester Bennington and co at a festival in the USA). However, we got distracted by drinking booze and watching bands and only did a handful. The best of our videos – by far – was when we caught up with our old friends CJ McMahon and Lee Stanton from mighty Australian deathcore monsters Thy Art Is Murder what they would do if Linkin Park grassed them up to the fuzz.

The new album from Carcass, the mighty Surgical Steel, is officially out this week. To mark the occasion, the guys over at Nuclear Blast have bunged us an exclusive interview clip of Jeff Walker and Bill Steer talking about what it was like to get Ken Own, the original drummer of Carcass, in to the studio to record some backing tracks for the album. FYI, newcomers, back in 1999, Ken Owen suffered from a brain haemorrhage that forced him to spent ten months in hospital, and pretty much forced him to stop drumming.

Remember last year when we started making noise about SikTh reuniting? And then they went and launched a merch store and an official Facebook page and then….well, nothing? It was kinda frustrating, wasn’t it?

Well, we got tired of waiting for more news on the SikTh reunion, so when we got one of the band’s former frontmen, Mikee Goodman, in front of a camera at Download Festival 2012, we just straight up asked him what on Earth was going on with regards to his former band.

Progtology with James Monetieth Thrash Hits

Okay, so this isn’t strictly a new column from James, but we did catch up with Mr Monteith backstage at this year’s Download Festival, where we cajoled him in front of our camera to talk about what really happened with regards to Elliot Coleman, to reminisce about that time he was sick all over Raz’s shoes, and to speculate on how much we’d have to pay him to get him to repeat his journo-vomiting technique over our contributor Tom Dare’s hair.

Feed The Rhino Download 2012 Thrash Hits

What is it about the Pepsi Max Stage at Download Festival that makes bands want to get in amongst the crowd? Not that we’re complaining – if Lee Tobin and the rest of the guys in Feed The Rhino weren’t about to let the crowds at Download Festival 2012 sit back and spectate, we sure as Hell weren’t about to get in their way.
