Soon after we posted a piece pondering the future of festivals once the heritage rock and metal bands of the past 40 years retire, the still mighty Black Sabbath announced that they would be headlining an all-star cast including Faith No More, Motörhead and Soundgarden. Headlining the fourth stage, however, is a somewhat younger band: Rise To Remain.

Download Festival announces 22 more bands for 2012

February 29th, 2012

If you get up very early in the morning, you’ll have spotted that Download Festival‘s head promoter, Andy Copping, announced another 22 bands for this year’s festival via his Twitter account this morning. And as you’d expect from such a large announcement, it’s a mix of old and new, big and small, and awesome and just plain awful.

Live & Photos: Defenders of the Faith @ London Brixton Academy – 04 December 2011

December 16th, 2011

We love a bit of metal so we went down to Brixton Academy to see Trivium headline Metal Hammer’s Defenders of the Faith tour with In Flames, Ghost and Rise To Remain in tow. Insense played as well but they played really, really early and Gary didn’t even manage to take photos of them up in Manchester. There are loads of photos. Go click on them and then go visit Gary’s website because he’s awesome.

Six things we figured out whilst watching all the metal in Brixton:

It’s been a long time coming. This album was being recorded a whole year ago but it’s taken ‘til now for Rise To Remain’s major label debut to be release. After playing every festival under the sun (twice) and supporting pretty much every great band ever, luckily for them, City Of Vultures is worth the wait.

Is there anything better than a Thrash Hits Festival Splash Page? Yeah, loads of things but you won’t find the best online festival coverage on any of them. You’ll find that right here.

All our work from Sonisphere Festival 2011 is going be linked to from this page (eventually), so give it a bookmark or just don’t close it, because it’s all you’re going to need. Individual band coverage (interviews, photos, setlists and some tiny reviews), rumours, drinking games, stage times, dodgy photos of as many sexy ladies in various states of safe-for-work undress as we can legitimately get away with? It’s all here.

Future Hits 074: Collapse

February 7th, 2011

Collapse
From: London, UK
Lazy Equation: Machine Head x The Haunted + Lamb Of God
URLs: collapse.co // Myspace.com/collapseengland

Thrash Hits Verdict:
For a band so early in their career, Collapse have already defined the key elements to their sound – fusing the gallop of European melodic death with the down-tuned riffage of Bay Area thrash. Having packed out and torn apart the Sophie Lancaster Stage at Bloodstock 2010, Collapse have all the potential to become one of the rising stars of the British metal scene.

Interview: Funeral For A Friend’s Ryan Richards talks about the band in 2011

January 24th, 2011

With a mammoth tour of the UK’s dives approaching and a brand new album (their fifth!), Funeral For A Friend are taking this year by the scruff of its neck. It was only reasonable to ask drummer Ryan Richards some stuff about it all

19 dates? That’s surely one of the longest UK tours you’ve done for a while?
It’s a hefty one alright. We’ve been talking about adding a few more dates as well so it may just end up extending even further – possibly into the longest UK tour we’ve ever done. With the new lineup and new album – it feels like the perfect time to do it.
