Named after the Hollywood star of the same name, the title Drug Church have chosen for their debut full-length proves to be an extremely apt one, as, like Walker’s most famous film role, this is fast and indeed, furious. The Albany, NY quintet, who feature Patrick Kindlon of Self Defense Family (formerly known as End of a Year), will strike a chord with those who still hold a torch for 90s grunged-up post-hardcore.

Top 6: Reasons we’re not (too) sad that Jeff Tuttle has left The Dillinger Escape Plan

August 18th, 2012

Jeff Tuttle from The Dillinger Escape Plan by Ben Gibson Thrash Hits

Okay. That blog title is a massive piece of misdirection. When the news came in yesterday that Jeff Tuttle had decided to part ways with The Dillinger Escape Plan, we were really bummed out. We frickin’ love DEP, and we frickin’ love what Tuttle brought to the band. Although he didn’t appear on Ire Works, Tuttle had been in the band since they started touring that release, and his contributions to 2010’s Option Paralysis – which was Thrash Hits’ Album of 2010 – can’t be understated either.

However, rather than despair that a member of our favourite bands has decided to leave, we’re giving this one a positive spin. Which is why we’ve gone and put together….

Six we’re not (too) sad that Jeff Tuttle has left The Dillinger Escape Plan:

Album: Slash – Apocalyptic Love

by David Keevil

Slash carries a name, and an image, that has become synonymous with rock music; from the iconic opening blast of ‘Welcome to the Jungle’, through to his bolshy groove-ridden tenure for Velvet Revolver, this is a man who’s been an ambassador for hard rock ever since the late-80s heyday of Guns N’ Roses. It’s down to being such an enduring masthead of rock music – even if his cultural zenith peaked twenty years ago – that every new Slash record must drag the weight of his much more prosperous days behind him.

One of the most maddening things about people’s reactions to side-projects – particularly those involving members of their favourite bands – it’s that people get the huff when said side-projects don’t sound like the band that they’re a side project of. So if you’re expecting Coilguns, a splinter faction of half the current members of The Ocean, to release records that mirror the deep, pulsating progressive post-metal/math experimentalism of their parent band – music that require contemplation, chin-stroking, and overly-wordy genre description on two-bit metal blogs – then you’re going to be disappointed.

Stadia Rods isn’t that kind of record. This isn’t so much an EP as it is an exploding pressure valve.

Before we get the ball rolling it has to be said I quite like a bit of Hatebreed. I can’t say that there is a perfect album end to end, but they sure do know how to make some floor-punching, dick-shrivelling stompers that are always accompanied by chest beating choruses. ‘Straight To Your Face’, ‘Doomsayer’, ‘This Is Now’ or ‘I Will Be Heard’ all result in my car going bat shit crazy with my crew slamming one another on the back seat.  But will this debut solo record from Jamey Jasta prove that there more to the man than a head scarf and a huge gob?
