It seems we’ve become the go-to heavy metal guys for the BBC Radio 1 Review Show. That’s kind of cool, isn’t it? We think we can get away with saying that as we’ve been asked back for the fifth time tonight, where our Deputy Editor Hugh Platt will join host Edith Bowman and fellow guest Angel Haze in talking about a whole load of fresh new music. You can listen in online using your web browser, via your digital TV (it’s on Freeview channel 700, or thereabouts) or by tuning your old fashioned analogue radio to 97-99FM at 9pm GMT. If you want to join in, just tweet in using the hashtag #r1review and give Hugh some encouragement/abuse. We’re happy with either.

December 20th, 2012

BBC Radio 1 Review Show Edith Bowman Mike Duce Lower Than Atlantis Hugh Platt Thrash Hits

2012 was the year we went legit. Well, not really, but it was the year that we got to pull out Ron Burgandy’s “I’m kind of a big deal” attitude as BBC Radio 1 called us up and asked if we wanted to take part in the Radio 1 Review Show. Y’know – sharing our expert opinion on rock music and all that for an hour on national radio. Well, it was the Radio 1 Week of Rock, after all.

BBC Radio 1 Review Show Edith Bowman Mike Duce Lower Than Atlantis Hugh Platt Thrash Hits

In case you’re not one of the literal thousands of people who follow Thrash Hits on Facebook and Twitter, then this might’ve passed you by: last night our Deputy Editor, Hugh Platt, appeared on BBC Radio 1’s Review Show, spouting off about new tracks from Mallory Knox, Gnarwolves, Bullet For My Valentine, and his personal pick – Converge. Why did Edith Bowman invite us in as pundits? Well, it’s all down to Radio 1 Rocks – nearly a week of special programming where the UK’s flagship music broadcaster recognises that there are plenty of us out there who like our music LOUDER and HEAVIER than the average listener.

Midweek Bootleg 001: Pulkas – Live Radio Session

October 4th, 2012

While sorting out his record collection, Hugh Platt stumbled across a wealth of awesome bootleg recordings of bands you probably don’t remember or even care about. Not that he’s going to let that get in the way of him using this as excuse to blather on about Pulkas.

In 1998, a band that only a small minority of you will have probably heard of came in at no.4 in Metal Hammer magazine’s Critics’ Album of the Year list with their debut record, Greed. They also came in at some ridiculous high placing in the annual Readers’ Poll in the Best New Band category – they were top 5, but I’ll be damned if I can remember exactly which place they had. That band was a London four-piece by the name of Pulkas.

2008 into 2009: Xfm Rock Show

December 14th, 2008

The Xfm Rock Show is hosted by the self-proclaimed “relentlessly-upbeat-colourful-midget”, Katie P. She’s no liar. Here, she talks to us about stuff that she likes and that you should like. In a relentless upbeat manner!

What was your highlight of 2008?
Probably the Never Say Die Tour – as it’s pretty fresh in my mind still – seeing Parkway Drive, Unearth and Architects on the same bill was incredible.

What’s the worst thing that happened to you in 2008?
Missing seeing Alexisonfire at the Barfly as I had to go to work.
