HEY YOU: the Mercury Prize is announcing it’s 2013 winner on Wednesday 30 October 2013. That mean we’re announcing the winner of our COROT-3b Prize too. Don’t know what the COROT-3b Prize is? Well, go click on that link. Everyone up to speed? Good. You’ve got mere hours left to cast your vote, so we figured we’d use this week’s Sunday Slaylist to not only remind you of who’s up for the prize, and to prompt any Johnny-come-lately types to CAST THEIR VOTES NOW.

Yes, yes, yes, the Mercury Prize doesn’t have any metal in it. Yes, yes, yes, it doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things. Yes, yes, yes, that hasn’t stopped us resurrecting the COROT-3b Prize to celebrate a dozen great British metal albums from the last 12 months. Go click that link if you need an explanation why we called that. Everyone else: go click the “Read More” link and go listen to our Sunday Spotify Slaylist of this year’s COROT-3b nominees.

It must be somewhat a double edged sword to be labelled as a band with “potential”. On the one hand it’s great that people think your band could be something special, yet at the same point this potential has to be realised or it won’t be long before people’s interest dwindles. Case in point: The Defiled.
The Thrash Hits Podcast 028: Talking Daggers with The AvD from The Defiled (at Download Festival 2013)
July 11th, 2013
In the second of our Download Festival 2013 mini-podcasts, we interview The AvD from The Defiled about Daggers, the band’s forthcoming second album. Not that interviewing The AvD about anything is ever simple…..

Shut up and look at Ben Gibson’s photos of The Defiled. We’ve been telling you to pay attention to this band since before Thrash Hits even existed, so the least you can do is do us this favour this one time.
The Defiled want you to watch them record a live album (if you’ll bung them some cash via PledgeMusic)

We’ve been banging on about how good The Defiled are since before Thrash Hits even existed (as the poor, unfortunate souls we drink with and have to listen to our band-espousing can attest). We wish they’d hurry up and start work on the follow-up to their killer debut long-player, Grave Times, but right now they’re keeping themselves busy with a load of other projects – including the recording of a new live album. A new live album that they want you to help them with.

Okay, okay – we’re a little late on this one. The Defiled actually released this video to ‘The Resurrectionts’ – one of the centrepiece tracks from their excellent 1888 EP – last weekend. We just failed to mention it because we’ve either a) been out of the country, b) been moving house, and c) have been battling the technical gremlins all fucking week.
But our troubles really shouldn’t be your concern right now – it should be this video. Because this track is awesome.

Thrash Hits has been following the burgeoning career of London-based metallers, The Defiled, since before we even had a website. In the last year alone they’ve torn Bloodstock a new set of holes, gave Hellfire Festival‘s hangover a serious early afternoon wake-up call, and seen the dark side of Teutonic justice supporting Static-X across Europe.
