So let’s look at some things mentioned last time and what’s been happening with those bands or records since. That’s fun, right?

LOL fucking Tom Delonge

Today we welcome Gavin Lloyd back for his column on pop-punk, nu-metal, metalcore, and anything other microgenre you were into as a teenager that you’re secretly not nearly as embarrassed about as you like to make out you are on social media.

It appears that Finland is the most metal country in the world, but Norway is unquestionably the home of black metal, which is pretty metal. Norway is also home to By:Larm Festival, which is occurring on 13-16 February in Oslo. It’s a great place for showcasing the finest in fresh Scandinavian talent of all genres, but obviously there’s loads of metal there.

We’d have made a nifty “Thrash Hits goes to By:Larm” header, but we’re not going. However, while you don’t need telling to go and see bands like Blood Command, Turbonegro and Shining, we can still suggest some other bands you should go and see. So…

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!

Lamb of God to release their Wrath

November 3rd, 2008

Lamb Of God Randy Blythe Mark Morton Chris Adler Willie Adler John Campbell Thrash Hits

Mighty metallers Lamb Of God will release their fifth album, entitled Wrath on 23 February 2009 through Roadrunner Records in the UK and on 24 February 2009 through Epic in the USA.

The Virginia troupe took most of 2008 to record Wrath with producer Josh Wilbur. We have been assured that it is quite good. As if we thought it could be anything but amazing.

Lamb Of God will be returning to the UK at the start of February with the Defenders Of The Faith tour with Dimmu Borgir and Unearth in tow. That should be quite good.

Defenders Of The Faith February 2009 tourdates
08 Belfast Mandela Hall
09 Dublin Academy
11 Bristol Academy
12 Birmingham Academy
13 Manchester Academy
14 London Brixton Academy
15 Glasgow Academy
