Malevolent Creation are Massive Dickeheads Thrash Hits

Earlier this week, 25 year veteran death metal band Malevolent Creation parted ways with their drummer, Gus Rios. He was their eighth drummer, so why is this news?

Clive Burr R.I.P Thrash Hits

Clive Burr, former drummer with heavy metal legends Iron Maiden, died in his sleep earlier this week on Tuesday March 12, 2013. He was 56 years old. Although he was fired from the band in 1982, Bur remained friends with his former bandmates, who were longtime supporters Clive Aid, the charity Burr was a patron of which raised funds and awareness for cancer and multiple sclerosis (of which Burr himself suffered) causes around the world. It’s in recognition of his role in the history of one of the world’s biggest metal fans that we’ve put together this week’s Sunday Slaylist as a tribute to Clive Burr.

Black Sabbath Bill Ward Is Out promo photo Thrash Hits

Black Sabbath – i.e., Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, and Geezer Butler – have released a statement in response to the large statement made by Bill Ward yesterday, when he ruled himself out of the Black Sabbath reunion over contract issues.

November 16th, 2008

trent reznor nine inch nails thrash hits

Nine Inch Nails drummer, Josh Freese is due to leave the band at the end of 2008 and Trent Reznor has posted details of his replacement, Lostprophets‘ Ilan Rubin, on the band’s official website:

With great pride and excitement I announce the addition of Ilan Rubin to the lineup beginning next year. I had the chance to see Ilan playing his ass off at Reading and Leeds a couple summers ago and he blew me away. We recently invited him out to rehearse with us and he blew US away – the perfect guy to pick up the sticks after Josh leaves us at the end of the year.
