If you hadn’t realised, we like beer. We like drinking it. We like drinking new versions of it. We like talking about it. That’s why, when the mighty Clutch released their own beer, we thought we’d talk to singer, Neil Fallon about beer. Talking about beer is the second most enjoyable beer-related activity after drinking the lovely, lovely stuff, after all. Mmmm. Beer.

Neil Fallon tells us about his Top 6 beers:

Future Hits 029: Steadlür

May 18th, 2009

We can count on one hand the number of times Roadrunner Records has got it wrong when it comes to signing bands. That’s why we caught up with Philip Steadlür, lead singer and guitarist of American newcomers Steadlür for a chat

From: Atlanta, Georgia, USA
Sounds like: Skid Row, Motley Crue, Madina Lake

Thrash Hits verdict: We reckon that with their big choruses, classic guitar licks and clear ambition these boys are going to pick up a few fans on this trip to the UK and they’re going to do their damnedest to keep hold of every one of them. And it helps they’re dead sexy. It helps us, anyway. Errr…

Slipknot – ‘Dead Memories’ lyrics

Sitting in the dark, I can’t forget.
Even now, I realize the time I’ll never get.
Another story of the Bitter Pills of Fate.
I can’t go back again.
I can’t go back again
But you asked me to love you and I did.
Traded my emotions for a contract to commit.
And when I got away, I only got so far.
The Other Me Is Dead.
I hear his voice inside my head
We were never alive,
And we won’t be born again.
But I’ll never survive with Dead Memories in my heart.
You told me to love you and I did.
Tied my soul into a knot and got me to submit.
So when I got away, I only kept my scars.
The Other Me Is Gone.
Now I don’t know where I belong.
We were never alive, and we won’t be born again.
But I’ll never survive
With Dead Memories in my heart.
Dead Visions in your Name.
Dead Fingers in my Veins.
Dead Memories in my Heart.
