The mighty Pink Mist collective are going to be selling their wares in real life at Boxpark, east London from 12pm Monday, 06 May 2013. Made up of excellent indie labels Holy Roar, Tangled Talk, Big Scary Monsters and Blood And Biscuits plus a live promoter, they’re gonna be selling records and having sweet instore sessions. Monday is May Day bank holiday, so you have no excuse if you’re even vaguely nearby.

Well, it’s all been leading to this. The votes are in, the results have been tabulated, calculated, and any other kind of mathematically something-lated you can think of. This is the Thrash Hits Top 20 Albums of 2012.

Another day; another shedload of FREE MUSIC for you to download. Today it’s the turn of Deathwish, Inc., the label co-founded by Converge’s Jacob Bannon, as they’ve just released a free “Summer 2012” label sampler. When you take a look at the tracklisting – featuring the likes of Narrows, Oathbreaker, Heiress, Whips/Chains, Rise And Fall, Give Up The Ghost (aka American Nightmare), Single Mothers, Self Defense Family, Cursed, Touché Amoré, and Deafheaven – you can see that this is no piddly compilation of also-rans and lightweights.

Whilst there has been much written about the Mayan prediction of the destruction of the world this year, there has be relatively little discussion about what the soundtrack to that impending apocalypse will be. Well, I humbly submit that with their second full-length, Painted, Narrows have produced a record that would amply accompany any armageddon that our central-American predecessors may have called on. That’s not because it is the heaviest album you will this year, nor is it the nastiest or even the most gruellingly dissonant (though it does score highly in all these categories) – but rather because of its remorseless, unrelenting, soul emptying bleakness which refuses to abate throughout the eight tracks on offer here.

Those transatlantic metal innovators, Narrows, have gone and slipped out a preview for their forthcoming second full-length album, while we were busy throwing up Christmas decorations and generally being merry. ‘Absolute Betrayer’ showcases practically everything we love about this band, whipped into three-minute package of technicolour goodness – and you can check it out after the jump.

A whole lot of loud fucking noise came to Brighton last week – so we made sure our man beside the seaside, Andy Parker, was on hand to document the carnage as it unfolded.
