May 21st, 2013

Thrash Hits Podcast 1

In case you haven’t noticed, WE RELAUNCHED THRASH HITS. This week on the podcast, Raz and Hugh talk through the fancy new changes that we’ve made to the site (we’re pretty proud of it FYI), as well as giving the lowdown on our team-up with Songkick Detour (help us bring American Nightmare, SikTh, and a load of other awesome bands to London!), as well as talking about the only news story that’s mattered over the last week – Tim Lambesis of As I Lay Dying being arrested and charged with attempting to hire a hitman to murder his estranged wife.

SikTh? American Nightmare? Songkick Detour can bring them to London

detour london vs thrash hits 2013

We saw the power of Songkick Detour back in February when, in conjunction with our big sister, DrownedinSound, Desaparecidos played their first UK show. It was impressive and it was powered by the crowd. They wanted to see Desaparecidos play live in London and they put their money where their mouths were. We want to do the same thing with some bands that we like.

Let’s see if we can get American Nightmare over to the UK. Let’s see if we can show SikTh that people want to see them live.

Thrash Hits TV: Mikee Goodman talks about the SikTh reunion….

July 16th, 2012

Remember last year when we started making noise about SikTh reuniting? And then they went and launched a merch store and an official Facebook page and then….well, nothing? It was kinda frustrating, wasn’t it?

Well, we got tired of waiting for more news on the SikTh reunion, so when we got one of the band’s former frontmen, Mikee Goodman, in front of a camera at Download Festival 2012, we just straight up asked him what on Earth was going on with regards to his former band.

Sunday Slaylist: Speculating Sonisphere 2012

Speculating Sonisphere 2012 Slaylist Thrash Hits

Well, this week Sonisphere finally broke their silence and announced some of the bands that will be playing their Spanish and Finnish festivals this year. As yet there’s still no names for Knebworth, and as Metal Hammer noted, some of the names that are playing in Madrid and Helsinki are playing Download in the UK, and therefore seem highly unlikely to make the UK edition of Sonisphere. But it got us thinking – what bands could be playing at Knebworth this year?

They say familiarity breeds contempt but one wonders what preconceptions many listeners will have of Aliases on hearing that they feature Graham “Pin” Pinney on guitar, a man who in a former life plied his trade as part of spastic dissonance merchants SiKth. Of course once the SiKth fan boys have wiped the spermatozoa from their trousers they will realise that Aliases are very much their own beast and that Safer Than Reality has more than enough fire power to blow lazy comparisons to former projects clean out of the water.
