2013 AOTY Thrash Hits Albums of the Year

If you’re on this page, you really should have seen the Thrash Hits Albums of the Year 2013 list already. If you haven’t, you should click that link or this link and sort that out. This piece will attempt to delve into some vague statistical analysis of the results. This is really only interesting if you care deeply about either the Thrash Hits Top 20, any old statistical analysis or both, so the chances are you’ll have clicked through to something else by now. Anyway…

Thrash Hits Podcast 1

This week’s podcast has Tom Doyle joinging Hugh back in the Thrash Hits studio, and this week they’re taking a long hard look at the line-up for Hevy Festival 2012. As the UK’s up-and-coming hardcore, punk and rock festival prepares for its fourth year, we’re looking at the headliners, our top picks from lower down the bill, the unusual layout for this year’s festival, as well as baselessly speculating on the potential this young festival upstart has for the future. Oh, and mouthing off about a couple of bands. Y’know – the usual.

Usually when a someone quits a band, more often than not they do so not on the best of terms with their former bandmates. Obviously there are exceptions to this (after all, sometimes people just want to quit the music business altogether to spend time with their family), but if someone quits to start another band…well…you only have to look at Max Cavalera and Andreas Kisser to see that things do not normally end well in these situations.

Not so Josh Scogin and the guys in Norma Jean though. Not only does Scogin still get on with his former bandmates (well, the handful of them who are in Norma Jean’s current touring line-up), but they get on well enough for Norma Jean to bring The Chariot, the band Scogin quit NJ to form, out on their European tour with them. Awww. Isn’t friendship a wonderful thing?

Album: The Chariot – Long Live

The Chariot
Long Live
Good Fight Music

By Mike Strata

It’s no coincidence that the cover art for The Chariot’s latest slab of furious dissonance looks more like something one would expect from a hardcore band than a band that is routinely (and quite unflatteringly) labelled as metalcore. The Chariot has always produced DIY, rootsy, frighteningly honest music, and whilst the band might share little in common sonically with bands like Bane and Have Heart, their ethos and aesthetic are similar. From the organic recording of their albums to their ferocious, out of control live shows, for The Chariot it’s all about keeping it real.
