The Thrash Hits Podcast 014: Download Festival 2013 and other stories

September 21st, 2012

Thrash Hits Podcast 1

Well, Download Festival has announced their first two headline acts for 2013 – not that we knew that when we recorded episode 14 of the Thrash Hits podcast. Hugh and Tom sta down a mere two hours after Iron Maiden were confirmed (and a whole 14 hours before Rammstein were “officially” confirmed) to talk about the first major festival announcements for 2013, as well as a bit of not-so-idle speculation as to the identity of the as-yet-unnamed third Main Stage headliner. And then because they’d had a couple of beers, they took some time to debate why certain trends and cycles keep happening in the world of heavy metal.

Cancer Bats at Leeds Festival 2012 by Gobinder Jhitta

Cancer Bats might have missed their chance to pop their Main Stage cherry at Download Festival 2012 (cheers for that, British weather), but Leeds Festival 2012 was a different story. In front of the joint-biggest crowd of their career (tied with Leeds’ sister-festival, Reading, of course), Liam Cormier and co. smashed it. Lucky for us, our man Gobinder Jhitta was on hand to document their victory with his camera – and he did so from onstage.

Bloodstock Open Air 2012 Thrash Hits

Is there anything better than a Thrash Hits Festival Splash Page? Yeah, loads of things but you won’t find the best online festival coverage on any of them. You’ll find that right here.

If there’s one thing we can be sure of, it’s that Matt Tuck and Fire are not the same person. You know when someone asks, “Well, have you ever seen Matt Tuck and Fire in the same room? Well? Have you?” You can definitely say that Matt Tuck and Fire have been seen together onstage. All the fucking time. Good one, Bullet.
