What’s going on? The world’s finest alternative pop star, Avril Lavigne and the world’s finest Nickelback singer, Chad Kroeger have been boning hard enough and frequently enough that they want to keep doing it forever and ever. They’re getting married.

What you see above is what their children will look like. It’s not an artist’s impression. It’s a fact. Notice how both images look like Nic Cage.

Don Broco at Hevy 2011 by Ben Gibson Thrash Hits

While only in it’s third year, Hevy Music Festival has already established itself as the leading outdoor festival in the UK when it comes to hardcore. We sent some of our best men down to cover it – Tomas Doyle to handle the words, and Ben Gibson to sort out our pictures – and even though Friday was the “short” day of the festival, they still managed to get up to mischief…

2008 into 2009: MiLLS

December 20th, 2008

After drumming successfully for Cable and The Lucky Nine, Richie Mills has stepped out from behind the kit to front his own band. Bloody hell, if Dave Grohl can do it with Foo Fighters, then so can MiLLS.

The big news is that everyone’s been waiting for is that Metallica are due to play an exclusive, intimate gig for BBC Radio 1 at BBC Radio Theatre on Sunday, 14 September 2008 – the day before their appearance at London’s O2 Arena.

Radio 1 listeners can register for a chance to get tickets for the gig at from Tuesday, 02 September 2008 from 7.30pm. You have 72 hours (three days) to register.

The show will be broadcast the following day on Radio 1 from 9pm, forming the centrepiece of an entire evening devoted to Metallica, including a fantastic access all areas interview with all four members. This is quite annoying for those at the O2 Arena show, but I’m sure they’ll cope.

In other news, the war-inspired video for Metallica’s fortieth single, ‘The Day That Never Comes’ is to can now be found online. Clocking in at 7min 55secs, it’s less a promo video and more of a short film.

Hard Rock Hell II lineup finalised

July 2nd, 2008

Cancer Bats Hard Rock Hell Thrash Hits

The lineup for the second annual Hard Rock Hell, niftily sub-titled “The Dragon’s Ball”, has been finalised and it has shaped up magnificently.

The 48-hour maelstrom of rock and metal at the UK’s will take place on 5-7 December 2008 at the only rock ‘n’ roll bootcamp, located at Pontin’s, Prestatyn Sands in North Wales.

There are few things more fun that hard rocking whilst hard boozing in a Pontin’s – especially when you don’t need to worry about your parents finding out. We know this from last year’s inaugural and hugely successful HRH.

While we have the mighty Black Label Society and Thin Lizzy headlining the Classic Rock Stage, there are some very exciting developments on the Radio 1/Metal Hammer Stage as the Radio 1 Rock Show’s Daniel P Carter curates.

Carter is going to showcase some Thrash Hits .com favourites from the emerging rock scene including sets from Canadian rising stars Cancer Bats as well as Brighton heavyweights Johnny Truant and the mighty The Ghost Of A Thousand.

Tickets, including entry to the festival, accommodation and car parking, start from as little as £90 if you are prepared to share (destroy) a chalet with six other headbanging buddies. Find out more at
