Weathered Hands
A Warm Life In The Cold
In At The Deep End
10 March 2014

by Gavin Lloyd

Despite being a relatively young band Hereford’s Weathered Hands have already progressed a great deal. Starting life as a metalcore band, a line up change saw the band ditch their metal leanings to join the UKHC ranks. However after getting a bitter taste in their mouth from seeing primordial m0sh bros kicking twelve shades out of each other to their music the band has scaled up the melody, along with the emotion and intensity, leading to a natural climax on this release.

Future Hits 146: Weathered Hands

Weathered Hands
From: Hereford
Lazy equation: Hardcore + nothing

Thrash Hits verdict: If you like your fast, furious, emotional hardcore with frills on, Weathered Hands probably aren’t going to be your bag. This particular bag has no frills. If you want a frilly bag, find another, frillier band. What this Hereford quintet lacks in frills, however, it more than makes up for in thrills. Yeah, you see what we’ve done there.

Thrash Hits on

We know we’re damn good at what we do. We’ve got nominated for awards and stuff, so we’re not totally out of our gourd to have that opinion. You probably think we’re at least pretty good at what we do too, otherwise you wouldn’t be here reading this. And the folks over at think we’re pretty damn good at what we do too – that’s why they asked us to be the latest entry in their Best of the Blogs feature over in their Originals section and to inform the masses of users about three bands we’ve been listening to recently – Black Moth, History Of The Hawk (Did we mention that we were hosting History Of The Hawk’s album release show in November, where they’ll be supported by Throne, Empress, and Cult Cinema? And that tickets are a mere £4 in advance? Do your duty, dear readers), and The Armed.

Anyway, go check out our blog for here, and while you’re at it, you should go and join the Thrash Hits group on to see how you compare to some of our other miscreant readers.

Future Hits 118: History of the Hawk

History of the Hawk
From: Stourbridge, Midlands UK
Lazy equation: (UKHC + DCHC) x a European tour diary for Thrash Hits
URL: Facebook // Bandcamp // Twitter

Thrash Hits verdict: The crafty folk at In At The Deep End Records blackmailed us into listening to all nine minutes of History Of The Hawk’s OCEAN EP in 2011 but they don’t need to keep blackmailing us. IATDE know what they’re doing and they know who they’re signing. Any fans the absolutely fucking amazing Bastions album will enjoy HOTH. Melding 90s DC hardcore with 90s UK hardcore is hardly anything new but not all bands manage to make it sound as vibrant and energetic as these guys. Similar to Bastions and Hospital Corners, that OCEAN EP has a slightly medical meaning. It’s an acronym: Openness, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness and Neuroticism – the five big personality indicators when diagnosing a patient in modern psychology. We had a chat to History Of The Hawk singer, Nathan Coyle about what’s what. You should read this and then listen to their music. You will not regret it.

Remember Bastions? That band that we’ve told you about many, many times before, the band who we’ve urged you again and again to make the effort to go and see play live, ASA-‘effing-P? Well tonight they’re kicking off their first ever European tour. No longer are we urging just our British readers to get off their arses to go check out one of the best new British bands in years. Oh no. Now we’re urging the whole of bloody Europe to do so.

Album: Gallows – Orchestra Of Wolves

Orchestra Of Wolves

by Raziq Rauf

This is surely the best thing to have come out of Watford since John Barnes. This is Gallows’ debut album and it is fucking brilliant.

Orchestra Of Wolves is an old-school punk rock-fuelled hardcore monstrosity that is topped off quite fantastically by Frank Carter’s unholy story-telling racket. Plus, it’s all quite unmistakeably British.
