There are lots of aspects of metal that you can play to your mother, whilst still hoping to earn her approval and certify that you’re a functioning member of society. Some music, however, is so unrepentant, so clearly a mark of projected sociopathy, that it can only just sidle onto the extremer end of Radio 1 Rock Show, let alone be played to a beloved, concerned family member without wishing to cause serious alarm.

Thrash Hits verdict: One of the best ways we’ve found to discover new music is to pay attention to what our favourite bands are listening to. Now whole everyone thinks that they’ve got a good handle on what good music is, we’ve found that the people who’s very existence is rooted in making tunes are by far the best source of recommendations – which is why when Turbowolf guitarist, Andy Ghosh, started talking about Big Naturals…well, we pricked up our ears. And then promptly filled them with their wall-of-sound approach to blending odd samples, post-rock song structures, and flat-out grubby guitar noises. Jesse Webb, the drumming/electronics half of the duo, was on hand to answer out questions.

Album: Altar Of Plagues – Mammal

When a debut album smacks you between the eyes and forces you to pay attention, there’s always the risk the follow up will not live up to it. It takes a fairly special band to build on what they have done before, to improve every single aspect of their music and develop stylistically into an even more distinctive beast. With their second full-length Mammal, Altar Of Plagues prove just how utterly astonishing they are.

Iceland Airwaves 2010: Day 3 and it got well metal

October 16th, 2010

The best thing for you to know is that we stopped looking at our watch at 5am but definitely went to sleep at some point between then and when we woke up at 9am. Four Rennies and a bag of croissants later and it’s definitely time to discuss the disgustingly metal evening of metal we had last night.
