A Day To Remember 2014 by Mike Burnell Thrash Hits

Last week it was Asking Alexandria, this week it’s A Day To Remember – this autumn really is packed to the guts with bands consolidating their status at the top of the Kerrangcore tree with some of the biggest tours they’ve ever mounted. ADTR are even big enough to bring Radio 1-playlist botherers, Lower Than Atlantis, along as their main support. We made sure our man in Brighton, Mike Burnell, was there to photograph the both of them.

Reading & Leeds Festival 2013 Thrash Hits

With the August Bank Holiday weekend rapidly approaching, Reading & Leeds Festivals are once again upon us. As with every year, Reading & Leeds have a bit fat dollop of heaviness in among the landfill indie, so for this week’s Sunday Slaylist we’ve put together a Spotify playlist of the hardest and heaviest from their 2013 line-ups.

GREATEST HITS OF 2012 no.6: Thrash Hits invades the Radio 1 Review Show

December 20th, 2012

BBC Radio 1 Review Show Edith Bowman Mike Duce Lower Than Atlantis Hugh Platt Thrash Hits

2012 was the year we went legit. Well, not really, but it was the year that we got to pull out Ron Burgandy’s “I’m kind of a big deal” attitude as BBC Radio 1 called us up and asked if we wanted to take part in the Radio 1 Review Show. Y’know – sharing our expert opinion on rock music and all that for an hour on national radio. Well, it was the Radio 1 Week of Rock, after all.

Thrash Hits invades the Radio 1 Review Show

BBC Radio 1 Review Show Edith Bowman Mike Duce Lower Than Atlantis Hugh Platt Thrash Hits

In case you’re not one of the literal thousands of people who follow Thrash Hits on Facebook and Twitter, then this might’ve passed you by: last night our Deputy Editor, Hugh Platt, appeared on BBC Radio 1’s Review Show, spouting off about new tracks from Mallory Knox, Gnarwolves, Bullet For My Valentine, and his personal pick – Converge. Why did Edith Bowman invite us in as pundits? Well, it’s all down to Radio 1 Rocks – nearly a week of special programming where the UK’s flagship music broadcaster recognises that there are plenty of us out there who like our music LOUDER and HEAVIER than the average listener.

Thrash Hits Podcast 1

This week’s podcast has Tom Doyle joinging Hugh back in the Thrash Hits studio, and this week they’re taking a long hard look at the line-up for Hevy Festival 2012. As the UK’s up-and-coming hardcore, punk and rock festival prepares for its fourth year, we’re looking at the headliners, our top picks from lower down the bill, the unusual layout for this year’s festival, as well as baselessly speculating on the potential this young festival upstart has for the future. Oh, and mouthing off about a couple of bands. Y’know – the usual.

Lower Than Atlantis Download 2012 Thrash Hits

We will never get tired of linking to that tweet Mike Duce from Lower Than Atlantis posted where he threatens to headbutt one of our writers. They’ve made up and we’re cool with him now, but it’s still funny. There were no headbutting incidents during the band’s performance at Download Festival 2012. Shame.

Somewhat unsurprisingly, the first Download Festival announcement following the cancellation of their chief 2012 rival has at least one major coup picked from Sonisphere’s carcass – Refused are now going to be making their only UK festival appearance of 2012 at Download Festival. They’re just one of the thirteen new acts that the festival announced today.

Thrash Hits 2011 Albums of the Year

We’ve shown you what Raz and Hugh’s albums of the year are, but they’re not the only ones responsible for the Thrash Hits Top 20 Albums of 2011. Oh no. We’ve got a whole load of contributors – writers, photographers, and miscellaneous behind-the-scenes types – that help keep Thrash Hits running smoothly, and the albums they loved the most from 2011 matter just as much as those favoured by the boss men.

Don Broco at Hevy 2011 by Ben Gibson Thrash Hits

While only in it’s third year, Hevy Music Festival has already established itself as the leading outdoor festival in the UK when it comes to hardcore. We sent some of our best men down to cover it – Tomas Doyle to handle the words, and Ben Gibson to sort out our pictures – and even though Friday was the “short” day of the festival, they still managed to get up to mischief…
