Thrash Hits Verdict: We came across Primitive Weapons in Austin, Texas in March 2011 via a recommendation by Cancer Bats’ manager. “I think you’ll like them,” he said. He was correct. The Brooklyn monsters are the new project of former Gay For Johnny Depp man, Arty Shepherd and they ply a furious and sinister metal-oriented hardcore. Recently signed to label du jour, Prosthetic Records, they’re in exactly the right place to become one of the most acclaimed bands of 2012. We love the album, The Shadow Gallery and we believe that you will too. We had a chat with singer, David Castillo so that you can find out everything about Primitive Weapons.

You know when people say, “I was into that band back before everyone thought they were brilliant.” Well, now is your chance to be that guy, so don’t let yourself down. The Shadow Gallery by Primitive Weapons is one of the best heavy records you will hear in 2012.

It is a beast, a behemoth, a deliciously put together and quite brilliantly played collection of songs, every single one of which will happily blast your head off, shit down your neck and then send nasty photos of it doing stuff to your corpse to your nearest and dearest.

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?
