Thrash Hits

Go download Earthtone9’s free compilation. NOW.

June 1st, 2010

Yeah yeah yeah, we’ve been rabbiting on about earthtone9 getting back together a lot recently. Well, what do you expect, given that we were the one’s who confirmed the rumours were true and the band was playing together again?

Anyway, the band have brought forward the release of the free-to-download compilation album, Inside, Embers Glow…, and you can get your grubby mitts on it right damn now. If you head on over to, all you have to do is hand over your email address and BANG – you’ll be sent a link to download the whole thing for nowt.

Of course, we’d also recommend shelling out the ludicriously cheap asking price of £5.99 for the limited-run digipak version of the album. It might encourage the band to, y’know, maybe record something new?


EXCLUSIVE! earthtone9 reform – interview & photo gallery

May 27th, 2010

Yep, you read that right – earthtone9 have reformed. Andy Parker found himself invited into their not-so-secret rehearsal space for an afternoon of Lo-Def(inition) Discord. WOOO!

By the time an aggravated tourist flew a plane into a skyscraper in New York in 2001, earthtone9 were struggling with the transition from the minor league underground stars to the major league of  UK metal. Despite being one of the most significant British metal bands of the past decade, it proved a gap they were unable to bridge. Their 2000 masterpiece, arc’tan’gent – a record which garnered universal critical praise, interest from across the pond, and saw them spend several years on the road – would prove to be their last full-length album.
