Avenged Sevenfold are releasing their sixth album, Hail To The King on 27 August 2013 and they’re headlining Wembley Arena in December as part of a nationwide arena tour. The chances are that the album will head to the top of the charts in both the UK and in America. The chances are Wembley Arena will be sold out. The chances are Avenged Sevenfold won’t bother with another UK tour in 2014, in favour of headlining Download Festival 2014.
Yet another reason you need to come to Thrash Hits Presents 03: Throne are using it as the launch party for their new 7″
November 12th, 2012
As if you needed yet another reason to come along to the third Thrash Hits Presents… night at the end of the month, the guys in Throne have decided they’re going to use the gig as the launch party for their brand spanking-new double A-side 7″.

Those Sacramento not-quite-nu-metal-but-they’re-kinda-stuck-with-that-tag-now metallers, Deftones, have released yet another track from their forthcoming seventh studio album, Koi No Yokan. This time it’s a track by the name of ‘Tempest’, and as it happens, this one is the first “official single” to be taken from the album.

Year of the Tiger

Given that their last commitment to tape was an 82-minute ‘rock opera’, chronicling the haphazard love life of an English factory worker, you could be forgiven for thinking that Fucked Up had exhausted all channels for experimentation. You’d be wrong, of course, as the latest instalment from the band’s largely hit-and-miss Zodiac series may well be their finest to date.

Way back in December 2003, The Darkness were riding high upon the crest of a wave of success that stemmed from the absolutely massive success of their debut album, Permission To Land. It was only natural for the most inventive and exuberant British rockers in recent memory to release a soon-to-be classic Christmas single.

It’s officially cold again – we’ve had to start wearing coats when we go out in the evening. It was tough enough for us already – our cold, lifeless hearts barely kept us warm as it is. But Turbowolf have come along and eased the pain of the onset of Winter – by announcing the release of a new single.

Biffy Clyro invited Thrash Hits .com down to their record label offices this afternoon to have an early listen to some brand new, just-recorded songs.
Simon Neil and co have been recording some demos and while they have rough versions of about ten tracks, there is only one song which is completely finished and it’s called ‘Mountains’.
It is 3min 19sec of slightly angular, stadium-filling riff rock with a killer refrain of, “I am the mountain / I am the sea/ You can’t take that away from me.” It will stick in your head after the very first listen – I guarantee it. Expect a hell of a lot of distortion and a more positive outlook for their forthcoming fifth album, touted for release in 2009.
Listen to ‘Mountains’ by Biffy Clyro
‘Mountains’ will be released as a single on Monday, 25 August 2008 after Reading & Leeds Festival and you can pre-order it at Amazon. ‘Paperfriend’ is a possible B-side – a song which was fully recorded during the Puzzle sessions but was left off the final cut.
Watch this clip of ‘Mountains’ being debuted at Electric Weekend Festival in Getafe, Spain on 30 May 2008. It’s really crappy quality both in terms of sound and vision so don’t expect too much from this but rest assured ‘Mountains’ sounds amazing.
Since the release of Puzzle in May 2007, the Scottish trio have toured incessantly with the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, Bloc Party, Oceansize and Linkin Park and have played festivals around the world.
Biffy Clyro will be performing at Download, Glastonbury, T in the Park and Reading & Leeds festivals this summer.
Look out for an interview with Biffy Clyro on Thrash Hits .com, where they talk about the new album as well as coming to the end of the Puzzle campaign, very, very soon.
