Yes there’s an overall TH Top 20 Albums of 2013 and there’s a list of the individual contributors’ favourite albums, but their opinions are also the most correct. That’s why they’ve got their own post where they can explain their own favourite albums of 2013 without being sullied by democracy.

With the August Bank Holiday weekend rapidly approaching, Reading & Leeds Festivals are once again upon us. As with every year, Reading & Leeds have a bit fat dollop of heaviness in among the landfill indie, so for this week’s Sunday Slaylist we’ve put together a Spotify playlist of the hardest and heaviest from their 2013 line-ups.

This afternoon we would like you to ask yourself just one question – what could you possibly be doing that is so important that you can’t take ten minutes out of your life to watch Vice’s film of The Bronx sweating themselves silly in a Swedish sauna, throwing caution to the wind and frolicking in the freezing Baltic, and then playing some music for some rabidly enthusiastic Scandinavians?
Answer: Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

With an upcoming tour with Gallows and their latest LP recorded with the legendary Steve Albini, the name of Trash Talk seems to be on everybody’s lips right now. We thought it’d be a good idea for Angie Louder to catch up with their frontman, Lee Speilman, to find out what it takes to get them to play a shows for weed, and how they got busted by the filth.

When the amazing hardcore extravaganza, Shred Yr Face II tour hit the penultimate date at the Brighton Concorde, Andy Parker was there for Thrash Hits with his camera and notepad. He had quite a good time.
Tonight I am exhausted. Never have I felt so run ragged by an act, so to be kept on my toes by two of the US’s finest exports is a pleasure.
The Shred Yr Face II Tour finds its way to the windswept coastline stopping for chips and dohnuts at Concorde2, Brighton.
