funny test exam heavy metal symbols thrash hits metallica slayer anthrax megadeth

Pulling people up on their spelling is a dick move – we get people referring to us as ‘Trash Hits’ all the time, after all – but Heavy Metal is a religion to almost 41,000 people and, as such, ought to be taken very, very seriously. That’s why, while trawling Facebook for some rubbish about Megadeth’s new album using our stupid, massive sausage fingers, we came across something that blew our puny minds.

November 15th, 2012

Thrash Hits Podcast 1

Having played their second ever show in a sweatpit basement with Gallows in last month, we thought it might be nice to have a chat with the chaps from monstrous, new New Jersey hardcore mob, Chambers. They’re pretty special.

From: New Jersey, USA
Sounds like: Gallows, The Ghost Of A Thousand, hardcore rock ‘n’ roll
Website: www.myspace.com/ChambersRock

Thrash Hits verdict: It’s rare that you instantly ‘get’ a band – especially so early on in their career but a couple of plays on their MySpace and we were hooked on their refreshingly beefy take on a now well-thumbed blueprint.
