When guitarist Vogg resurrected Decapitated following the tragic road accident in 2007 that shattered the band, he could have chosen to keep doing the same things that had made Decapitated as big as they are. The 2011 release of Carnival is Forever was definitely not the result of such a decision. Blood Mantra is another step down that path, away from the sounds of traditional death metal.

Lamb of God by Gobinder Jhitta Birmingham O2 Academy 17 January 2014 Thrash Hits

It’d be fair to say that 2013 is probably a year that Randy Blythe from Lamb of God would like to forget, having spent much of it dealing with his trial and subsequent acquittal for manslaughter of Czech fan of his band, Daniel Nosek. They’ve certainly not wasted any time getting their 2014 off to a running start, hitting Europe for a 14-date extension to their long-running Resolution tour. We sent Gobinder Jhitta down to Birmingham to catch Randy and co.

The Thrash Hits Podcast 005: The Randy Blythe Situation

July 5th, 2012

Thrash Hits Podcast 1

Raz is once again absent (his jetsetter lifestyle means he’s off in Berlin to catch Pearl Jam), so this week Hugh is once again joined by Tom Dare, and this week by another Tom from the Thrash Hits writers roster – Tom Doyle. Yes, he’s the Tom Doyle that Lower In Atlantis threatened at headbutt that time. No, he’s not the Tom Doyle who’s a member of Don Broco.

This week’s topics of conversation include recent gigs by Evile, Decapitated and *shels, but mostly we just talk about the Randy Blythe/manslaughter situation that has gotten most of the metal internet up in arms one way or the other over the last 7 days.

The pimply-faced internet junkies who doubted the fruits of this reincarnation on the metal message boards are most likely going to be lauding this release and feverishly trying to delete their past postings. It’s just that fucking good.

Album: Atheist – Jupiter

Atheist
Jupiter
Seasons Of Mist

by Tom Dare

Once one of the all-time greats of technical death metal – a pioneer for adding jazzy progression to the style – Atheist returned to the studio following an absence of over a decade and a half to record a new album, Jupiter. But after so many years, and so much evolution in extreme metal in the intervening years, the risk looms large that they may have been left behind.
