Metal Mark gets ticketed for drinking too much; hangs out with Baroness and Behemoth

February 17th, 2010

What’s going on my metal friends! After two months I have returned to let you in on what I’ve been up to. Some of you may have been worried that I died of alcohol poisoning, maybe I should have three or four times, but I’m here! Luckily I could spend more on alcohol recently, since there were only a few shows coming through the Atlanta area. It worked out perfectly!

There’s not much to be excited about when it comes to Winter. Sure, there’s Christmas, and Hallowe’en, and Guy Fawkes, but those are just little pinpricks of fun amongst months and months of bad weather, sour faces, long nights and pretty girls wearing giant fucking coats all the time.

So we guess it’s a pretty good job the awesome Gay For Johnny Depp are coming back to the UK this Winter to perk us all up, ain’t it?

Were you lucky enough to catch The Ghost Of A Thousand on their Thrash Hits-sponsored UK tour last month? If you were, you’ll have heard them play a couple of tracks off their eagerly-awaited, and as-yet-untitled second album, due out later this year.

Which is why Thrash Hits Editor, Raziq Rauf, cornered frontman Tom Lacey backstage before the band tore the guts out of the London Borderline. We wanted to find out just what the Brighton five-piece have been getting up to in a Swedish recording studio.
