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.

Last week we kicked off our new series of genre-specific columns with Prog, and this week we’re turning our attention to things a little nastier. We’ve asked Cheryl Carter to give us her insight to the past month (well, month and a bit – we’re just getting into the swing of this whole “regular schedule” thing, after all) in Black Metal…

It is impossible to discuss Primordial without talking about the music’s emotion as much as the music itself. Pride, grief, rage; these things meld into each other and every note, giving the band a resonance and sincerity that politicians and Christmas adverts alike would kill for. Where Greater Men Have Fallen is very much in the same vein as its predecessors, and for a band of Primordial’s consistency, that can only be a good thing.

Sunday Slaylist: Nirvana Unplugged

November 23rd, 2014

Kurt Cobain Nirvana Unplugged Thrash Hits

21 years ago this week, Nirvana recorded a now-legendary acoustic performance in New York City. Taped at Sony Music Studios for MTV’s Unplugged series, Nirvana’s rendition of eight of their own songs and six cover versions would go on to eclipse every other performance recorded by MTV – not just for the Unplugged series, but pretty much every MTV recording ever.

Photos: A Day To Remember + Lower Than Atlantis @ Brighton Centre – 15 November 2014

A Day To Remember 2014 by Mike Burnell Thrash Hits

Last week it was Asking Alexandria, this week it’s A Day To Remember – this autumn really is packed to the guts with bands consolidating their status at the top of the Kerrangcore tree with some of the biggest tours they’ve ever mounted. ADTR are even big enough to bring Radio 1-playlist botherers, Lower Than Atlantis, along as their main support. We made sure our man in Brighton, Mike Burnell, was there to photograph the both of them.

Today – Sunday 16 November 2014 – marks the 44th birthday of one Logan Mader, founder (and former) member of Machine Head, Soulfly, and Medication, and now a successful engineer, mixer and producer. We’ve decided that the best way we could mark the occasion was to put together a Sunday Spotify Slaylist of all of Mr Mader’s best bits.

Interview: Tomas Lindberg from At The Gates on crafting the most anticipated album of 2014

November 13th, 2014

There’s no way around it – At The Gates releasing their first new material in over 18 years was a big deal. We sent Pete Long along to find out from Tomas Lindberg, the band’s frontman, just why it took so long.

Tomas Lindberg At The Gates Thrash Hits

When Tomas Lindberg talks about the “One thousand, two thousand people” waiting for At War With Reality, it seems he might be selling himself a little short. It’s not that he’s unaware of the affection that Slaughter of the Soul is held in, it’s just that nobody in At The Gates is the type of guy to spend too much time thinking about the album’s legacy. Considering the effects that the level of expectation could have had on them, it’s probably just as well.

Did Gene Simmons just accidentally leak a Download Festival line-up announcement? (Answer: Yes)

November 11th, 2014

From the KISS frontman’s personal Twitter account

Oh Gene.

This is probably why you shouldn’t let ageing rockstars setup their own pre-dated scheduled tweets. The offending tweet has since been deleted, but hey, nothing ever really gets deleted on the internet.

UPDATED (AGAIN):

But of course.ThatsNotWhatTrolling-Means

Hmmmmmmm. Riiiiight.
