Interview: Doc Coyle from God Forbid on getting old, recording without a plan, and what makes their album, Equilibrium, better than the rubbish film of the same name

If you asked us to put together a list of the most genuine, the coolest, and generally most all-round solid dudes that we’d interviewed here at Thrash Hits, then Doc Coyle, guitarist from God Forbid, would be right there at the top. When we chatted to him a few years ago at Download, he put up with our amateur-hour questioning like a pro, and when we sent him an email the other day with a load of snide questions about Equilibrium, his band’s recently-released sixth studio album, he once again took it all in his stride. Doc, sir, as far as Thrash Hits is concerned, you’re one of the good guys.

Everyone loves free stuff. We love free stuff. It’s the incentive that keeps us posting snide and snarky missives on the internet, after all. Sometimes though, people want us to give you free stuff though – as is the case with the guys and gals over at Victory Records, who’ve given us a big ol’ bag of CDs and t-shirts to give away to our readers.

PROGTOLOGY with James Monteith of TesseracT: #3a – On tour across the USA

May 10th, 2011

The chicken-fried steak stories were a good clue as to this column’s future but TesseracT guitarist James Monteith has checked in with so many stories from their current US tour that we’ve had to split his third column into two parts. We’ll start with the useful stuff: guitar lessons, shooting Maylene and the Sons of Disaster with BB guns and… what’s that about a second album? OH!

Progtology with James Monetieth Thrash Hits

We’re a month and a bit into our North American tour. We’ve played over 20 shows, made some great new friends, seen all kinds of weather conditions, I’ve grown a full beard, shaved it off, and started to grow another again. It’s been eventful.

New blog from the drunk dude – Metal Mark in Atlanta

August 9th, 2009

It’s been another month and so it’s time for another hazy-eyed narrative from Atlanta’s finest metaller-bothering boozehound, Metal Mark from This time, he’s been to Mayhem Festival. Ooh err…

What’s going on metal people?! The past few weeks have been extremely busy here in Atlanta. It’s been a metal overload! So many shows, so many beers, so little time, but it’s been awesome.

In the past few weeks I have seen live shows from Iwrestledabearonce, Atheist, The Faceless, Psyopus, The Agonist, and of course the all day Mayhem Festival. Most of this blog will be about the Mayhem Festival since I had a lot of interviews and the show was insane. So here we go!
