With 2012 drawing to a close, our album of the year lists done and dusted, we’re turning out attention this week to Thrash Hits’ own, personal Greatest Hits of 2012. We’re talking about the things we published that got the biggest reactions, the most views, that stirred the pot the most, and quite frankly, the articles we got a buzz out of publishing. For the first of this week’s look-back, we’re winding back all the way to January, for Tom Doyle’s review of Blessed By A Broken Heart’s Feel The Power.

For about five minutes back in the mid 2000s, Blessed By A Broken Heart were one of those bands that looked like they could’ve been absolutely massive in the UK. Shows with the then-hot-ticket Enter Shikari ensured they were in the right place at the right time, but they have struggled to convert that potential into a solid UK fanbase, concentrating harder on the US market where fans seem more willing to lap up their glam rock/mosh schtick. Their third album, FEEL THE POWER (hilariously capitalised on the promo copy we received at Thrash Hits HQ, along with ALL THE TRACK TITLES), is surely their last chance to ‘crack’ the UK. Have they got a hope? In short, no.

Funny Video, Funnier Band: Hollywood Undead – ‘Undead’

February 12th, 2009

Hollywood Undead are, unsurprisingly from Los Angeles, California. They seem to have created an image inspired by Mushroomhead and Mudvayne but spew a sound… a sound… it’s the sound of McFly rapping. It makes us cry.

Do you remember Corporate Avenger? I hope not – they were a terrible, mask-wearing bunch of tools that lurched into view after getting a whiff of Slipknot’s vapour trails and decided they quite fancied a piece of that pie. Thankfully, the world stood up as one and mocked them back under the rock from which they crawled from under.

We bring them up because we hope the same fate consumes Hollywood Undead, easily the vilest and earachingly awful exponent of the idiot genre that is screamo-crunk. It’s as if all the macho posturing you can find on Hot Chicks With Douchebags has been distilled into six semen-scrapings from the inner penis tube of a serial date-rapist.
