March 31st, 2014

Thrash Hits verdict: As with pretty much all new bands, they formed from the ashes of a couple of bands from within the same local scene and Shrine did just that. With drummer, Liam Kearley and bassist, Andrew Gosden putting the band together with Joe Gosney, guitarist and today’s interview subject, they started putting music together. When Will Gardner’s band, Lithurgy parted ways, he added vocals. The result is a proggy, math riff-oriented mix of rock and metal that knows how long to linger on the melodies and when to descend into darker, sludgier ways. They’re releasing a new EP on 07 April 2014 but we’re streaming it below. Listen to it.

Live Evil 2013 Thrash Hits

In keeping with our ongoing theme of Winter metal-fest themed Sunday Slaylists, we were going to put something together today to herald the impending (and quite frankly magnificent-looking) Live Evil Festival 2013. We say “were”, because yesterday while bumming around on the internet, we found out that Dylan Hughes aka A Fist In The Face Of God got there first. And made a better mix than we ever could.

It’s been over five and a half years since Cave In released their last album, Perfect Pitch Black but with a three-year hiatus and an EP since then, their fifth album, White Silence cannot come soon enough. It’s released on 24 May 2011 via Hydra Head Records. Cave In have not released a bad album or EP. It’s unlikely that this pattern will change.

A few hours ago, Jonathan Davis recorded a short message for his fans, along with some new dubstep-oriented beats and uploaded them to Soundcloud via his iPhone. We have been led to believe said beats will be incorporated into a brand new song called ‘Get Up’. Here is Davis’ eloquent speech:

“What’s up, everybody? It’s JD. We’re getting ready to fuck shit up again. Check this shit out. It’s new shit…”

We went to see Black Label Society at Hammersmith Apollo last month and Jesus H Hetfield, our ears are still ringing. While we were there we just had to ask Godsized on how an unsigned metal band from Croydon, with only two EPs to their name, gets to support Black Label Society on the entire European leg of the Berzurkus 2011 Tour.
