GREATEST HITS OF 2012 no.3: Publicly calling out TRC over their video to ‘Temptation’

December 19th, 2012

TRC Temptation Loop Thrash Hits

There has only been one instance in the near-five year history of Thrash Hits that we’ve hesitated before clicking the ‘Publish’ button out of fear for our physical safety. And that was earlier this year, when Hugh Platt wrote a ‘Dear John…’ letter to TRC, explaining why he wouldn’t be writing about them anymore after witnessing their then-latest promo video for ‘Temptation’. Mainly because he was scared one of TRC would uppercut his head clean off his shoulders backstage at Download Festival or something like that.

VIDEO: Machine Head get NSFW-level gruesome for ‘Darkness Within’

July 31st, 2012

Remember when we poked fun at Machine Head for having cheap-looking videos? Yeah, we pretty much found something to laugh at from every era in their history. Well, their latest video for ‘Darkness Within’ pretty much put paid to that – we’d like to think it was the cosmic impact of our bitter, bitter blogging that spurred them to break the cycle of naffness, but let’s face it – it probably wasn’t.

In fact, this video is pretty damn swish – we’d go so far as to say it has the highest production values of any MH video to date. It’s also very much NOT SAFE FOR WORK, so unless you work in the kind of place where violence, self mutilation, worm-eating, mutation, blood-letting and the like are all par the course, don’t go watching this until you’re out of the office.

WIN: a pair of tickets to Arcane Roots’ Kerrang! Awards show at the Camden Barfly

May 25th, 2012

Arcane Roots are the kind of band you should like if you like the clever-clever bits of Biffy Clyro (but not the nice-nice bits about Biffy Clyro) combined with the sharper bits of Muse (without the vibrato histrionics that annoy us about Muse). They’ve recently signed to PIAS, and next month they’re put out a mini album by the name of Left Fire. And to celebrate that fact, they’ve given us a pair of tickets to give away to their Kerrang! Awards Show gig at the Camden Barfly on 05 June 2012. You’d have to be pretty lazy not to click the ‘Read More’ button and to enter our competition to win them. Unless you live somewhere that isn’t near London, we suppose.

Whatever. It’s free gig tickets. Stop complaining and enter the competition!

Video: Forget all your week’s troubles with ‘Encased In Concrete’ by Cannibal Corpse

It’s Friday. You’ve had a crappy week. Right now you’re stuck in front of a computer, probably doing some boring nonsense work when you’d either a) be in the pub, or b) like us, wish you were at Hammerfest. Well we’re not, you’re not, and we’re annoyed about it. We’ve got a lot of aggression we need to work out.

Which is why we’re damn glad Cannibal Corpse have just released their video for ‘Encased In Concrete’.

Video: ‘Analysis Paralyis’ by Napalm Death – awesome track, cheapskate video.

February 29th, 2012

Napalm Death at Bloodstock by Gary Wolstenholme Thrash Hits

We’ve already gone on record stating how much we love Napalm Death‘s new album, Utilitarian. It’s pretty much the perfect rebuttal for anyone who claims that latter day Napalm Death isn’t as good as early Napalm Death. It’s a fearsome record, and Barney Greenway’s lyrics are perhaps among the sharpest and most eloquent the band have had in years.

Why they had to make such a cheapo-looking video for ‘Analysis Paralysis’, the first single to be taken from it though….

Maintaining the fine-tradition of Literal Video Treatments: Five Finger Death Punch have a new promo out

February 20th, 2012

We’ve previously joshed Five Finger Death Punch about their tremendously literal music videos, and we know that plenty of bands do similar things, but there’s something about 5FDP’s dedication to really relentlessly hammering their already thunderously-unsubtle point home with a nuance-free music video that gets us right in the heart, every time.

Oh look, everyone! Five Finger Death Punch have got a new video out! For their track, ‘Remember Everything’! I wonder how it’s turned out?

Video: Will Haven’s new promo, ‘When The Walls Close In’, just came out, and it’s bloody as hell

It’s probably a good thing that the new Will Haven album came out on a Friday night. While technically it’s isn’t NSFW, if you watch it over the weekend, you’ll be able to dodge having to explain to your co-workers (and more importantly, your boss) why you’re watching a video of blood-smeared men stalking and being stalked by animal-masked strangers in a forest.

Dear TRC, I think we need to have a little talk about our “relationship” in light of your video to ‘Temptation’

February 15th, 2012

In the spirit of the “Dear John letter” concept, one of our writers just had to get something off his chest (following several minutes of dumbfoundedness) after watching the mesmeric new video from TRC. Warning: This post contains a TRC video.

Dear TRC,

I’m terribly sorry that I’ve had to do this through a letter. I couldn’t bear to make a scene in public. Also, I’m a physical coward and I think you might actually punch me in my wimpy, middle-class liberal face. I know we could never describe our “relationship” as being that a close one, but this afternoon I saw your promo video for ‘Temptation’, I thought it best we make a clean break of it before it develops any further.
