So, Wet Nuns have announced that they’re splitting up. As they gleefully posted on their Facebook page, “our four year long joke isn’t very funny anymore. We’re sick of the sight of each other and the band is imminently to cease to exist.” Fair enough. For a band who’ve spent nearly half of a decade arsing around, this hardly seems like an incongruous end. Rest in peace, Wet Nuns. Remain in obscuria.

In a bizarre coincidence, 65 per cent of all articles written about 65daysofstatic feature the word “unstoppable” in them. It may be a direct quote of the sample in ‘Retreat! Retreat!’ from the Sheffield post-rockers’ debut album, The Fall of Math or it may be cleverly sculpted into a different slab of hyperbole, there to indicate that 65dos can do no wrong. That’s lazy journalism, that is. And you can say that line about stats being made up in your own head.

Photos: The Jägermeister Music Tour @ Sheffield O2 Academy – 18 March 2013

Ghost at Sheffield O2 Academy by Gary Wolstenholme Thrash Hits

Although they’re forced to call themselves “Ghost B.C” in America now, here in the UK the Jägermeister Music Tour is still headlined by a band called Ghost. There’s no legal issues so far as we or anyone else we know can think of regarding Gojira and The Defiled being forced to use different name when stateside, so how about we cut all this introductory chit-chat and get right to the photos, okay?

Sabaton by Gary Wolstenholme at Sheffield Corporation - 11 November 2012 Thrash Hits

SABATON! We’re pretty sure we used the exact same intro text last time we wrote about a photo gallery of their live shows here on Thrash Hits. SABATON! Doesn’t it just roll off the tongue? SABATON! In fact, the only thing that’s really new about this photo feature is the line-up of the band, given that Joakim Brodén is the only member of SABATON still in the band from when we last featured them.

About five minutes after Gary Wolstenholme emailed us his incredible photos from the Sheffield show of Baroness’ recent UK tour, we got the news that the band had been involved in a horrific bus crash just outside of Bath. And we were torn. We really wanted to show these incredible shots off to the world, but at the same time we didn’t want to seem ghoulish and trying to capitalise on the publicity of the tragedy. Well, since the band are now all safely out of hospital – and given that all of the band’s tour dates for the rest of 2012 have been cancelled – we figured now was the time for us to show you these awesome shots in all their awesome glory.

Yeah, we used “awesome” twice in one sentence. Baroness are that kind of band.

Charlotte Wessels of Delain live by Gary Wolstenholme Thrash Hits

Delain? Does anyone really even care about Delain?” Someone said that to us this week. To that we answered: “Well, personally speaking, it’s not really our cup of tea, but some people like them, as otherwise they wouldn’t be able to fly over to the UK and play shows here, right?”. We then followed it up with: “And that’s why Gary Wolstenholme went along to the Sheffield show of their recnt UK tour that’s just finished, and took a load of photos for us”.

Architects live at Sheffield Corporation - 14 April 2012 - c/o Gary Wolstenholme/Inventory Photo for Thrash Hits

When Brighton metalcore-ish types, Architects, went on tour across the UK earlier this month, we didn’t just have one photographer covering it. Oh no. We had two. In the first batch of shots we’ve got from the tour, we’re bringing you the snaps taken by the mighty Gary Wolstenholme, from when the tour rolled in to the Sheffield Corporation.
