Super Snake
From: Union, NJ, USA
Lazy equation: A pissed off Tom Waits + Sleazy Rock N Roll + serious bitterness towards exs (+ Ugly Kid Joe) = Violently styled lyrics over steamy, down-tempo riffs.

Thrash Hits Verdict:
 We’ve got one EP of all but four songs to go by, and they’re all winners. HOORAY! As dark and disturbing as the tunes can get, there is also a shameless, exaggerated air to the music and the band itself. I mean, the band’s press photo consists of five pale shirtless dudes slathered in baby oil. In this day and age new bands have to whore themselves out a bit for attention, though, right?

The reason you’re not going to High Voltage Festival is that you’re an idiot

March 31st, 2010

With all out “Download Festival this, Sonisphere Festival that, Oh look Reading & Leeds” blathering recently, we’ve really missed out on emphasising one fact about the upcoming UK festival season: that High Voltage Festival, frankly, looks like it’s going to piss all over everyone else. The fact that it was confirmed today that Opeth will be playing their only UK festival show of 2010 there merely cements that fact.

Whitesnake self-confirm Download festival appearance

February 11th, 2009


Since the somewhat meagre official line-up announcement on Monday, we’ve been waiting for the trickle of self-confirmations for this year’s Download festival to start coming in – the latest is that of hard-rockers Whitesnake.

The band has announced over on their official website that they’re going to be playing the Donington metal festival on June 14 – that’s the Sunday, in case you were wondering. We’re hoping this will add weight to the likelihood of a classic rock closure to the festival – ZZ Top and Def Leppard, anyone?


Metallica’s Lars Ulrich speaks about the Sonisphere Festivals

Our favourite Danish thrasher, Lars Ulrich of Metallica talks at length in front of a pretty crappy Metallica poster about this summer’s European touring festival, Sonisphere.

Despite donning wellies and walking around in piss up to his ankles in the past, he doesn’t like camping but he says he would probably die if he could not do European vibes and stuff in the summer.
