Thrash Hits’ Favourite Gigs of 2013

December 12th, 2013

2013 thrash hits favourite gigs of the year

Part and parcel of being opinionated music lovers is that we go and experience lots of music in its natural habitat – on a stage – and then we decide how good it was. Some spectacles are so powerful that they evoke emotions strong enough to form memories through the drunkenness. It’s a rarity but that’s why some here have to name several before deciding upon their Favourite Gig of 2013. There is zero reason for you to be reading this but if you’ve read this far, you’ll get at least halfway down before clicking the cross.

The Thrash Hits Podcast 022

We’re at the mercy of modern technology for this episode of the Thrash Hits Podcast – Raz has decamped to the USA for a few weeks for SXSW and some California sunshine, leaving the rest of us here in miserable old England. With possibly the dodgiest Skype connection imaginable, Hugh and Raz discuss how SXSW has changed over the years, as well as speculating on how two very different kinds of hype affect bands – that currently being felt by Ghost (or Ghost BC, if you’re an American) and the kind that surrounds Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats.

Although they’re forced to call themselves “Ghost B.C” in America now, here in the UK the Jägermeister Music Tour is still headlined by a band called Ghost. There’s no legal issues so far as we or anyone else we know can think of regarding Gojira and The Defiled being forced to use different name when stateside, so how about we cut all this introductory chit-chat and get right to the photos, okay?

Occasionally a band pops out and they have zero profile but has something about them – something that’s going to make a few people take note, at least. Nero Di Marte are one of them. Having previously been called Murder Theory, the Italian quartet changed their name upon signing to Prosthetic. They also changed their style slightly, rounding off the techy edges found on their old material in favour of a slightly more palatable sound.

Raz is back in “the studio” for this week’s podcast, where he joins Hugh in looking back at the best albums of 2012 so far. There’ll be bands you’ve heard of, bands you’ve never heard of, and bands you’ve criminally under-rated up until now because they had stupid names. We’ve got the lot.

It’s no secret that Gojira are an awesome band. They played a sold out show in London and there was no chance we were going to miss it. On top of that, we took some photos of them in Sheffield. Pretty cool, huh? You can read our review and look at some photos just below. The internet is GREAT!
