Guest Column: My problem with Record Store Day, by Daniel Garrod

April 19th, 2013

Record Store Day 2013 Thrash Hits

After his last column on why he dislikes guests lists so much proved to be so popular, we asked former Bastions drummer, Daniel Garrod, if there was anything else he fancied getting off his chest/putting in the firing line. We didn’t expect him to turn his attention to Record Store Day, but hey, here’s his column…

Two years ago, almost to the day, I got a call from my then-guitarist who sounded like he was going to stab me in the throat…

Guest Column: Grind To Death’s Alex Layzell on Fastcore (Part 2)

July 27th, 2012

A while ago Alex Layzell, head-honcho over at the excellent Grind To Death, wrote a column for us on the subject of Fastcore. It went down so well, we asked him back to write part 2….

Grind To Death Guest Column Fastcore Part 2 Thrash Hits

Around the world in 80 days? Bah, give me some fastcore and I will power-walk that distance twice over and still make it back in time for tea, bringing with me a fresh batch of mangos for pudding and half a dozen third world kids to hand over to any post-colonial guilt suffering celebrity. If you have no clue what fastcore or the magical properties it possesses  is then I recommend checking out my first amateur mini expose on the matter here on Thrash Hits, and for those who have already read it please continue. Once again I recommended being tightly strapped/ seat belted into a bolted chair before letting any of these feast for the ears turn you into voluntary epileptic.

Guest Column: Grind To Death’s Alex Layzell on Fastcore

March 27th, 2012

A while ago we asked Alex Layzell, head-honcho over at the excellent Grind To Death, whether he’d like to do a guest column for us here at Thrash Hits. Take it away, Mr Layzell…

Grind To Death Guest Column Fastcore Thrash Hits

So the cyborg/monster mesh that is Thrash Hits’ Deputy Editor (no one can listen to that much metal, without assimilating with it) sent me a Morse code telegram a while back asking me to do a guest post on this Mecca of review sites: Thrash Hits. Now, to do a little exposé on metal will be insulting to your intelligence, on the assumption since you are reading this you therefore read Thrash Hits; and are thus well informed and to a higher standard well beyond my primitive gonzo-journalistic comfort zone. So what can I write about? My usual praises and slanders resides in the grindcore/powerviolence spectrum of crimes against music, but today I am going to treat you to something special: Fastcore.

Welcome our latest columnist…Rich Thomson of Xerath!

Xerath 2011 alt promo photo Thrash Hits

Hello there! My name’s Rich! You may know me as the guy that shouts at people from stage in my rock’n’roll band Xerath. You most certainly won’t know me as the drummer/singer/guitarist/bassist/synthist/primary song writer/band leader/genius in my other band Primer. In 99% of cases, you probably wont know me at all.

I’m here to offer and opinion or two, an observation here and there, and more than likely a completely unresearched and biased opinion on stuff that I give a shit about.

What’s going on metalheads? The past month has been full of shows in Atlanta. Now my wallet is empty, and there is more PBR in my body than water.  This month started out with the awesome Summer Slaughter tour at The Masquerade in Atlanta.  The tour lineup was insane, with bands like Necrophagist, Suffocation, Dying Fetus, Origin, and Beneath The Massacre destroying the stage.
