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.

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.

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.

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.

Nuance is a wonderful thing. It can turn a cheeky wink into a conspiratorial sign, a smile into a sarcastic dagger in the back of an enemy and a clap of appreciation is easily slowed into a mocking clap of listless distain and indifference. Imagine a life without nuance, the world would keep spinning of course, but things would be, well, a lot duller – a lot less fun.
