Marilyn Manson in shocking scenes shocker

September 15th, 2010

You’ll probably know by now that Marilyn Manson is set to star in his directorial debut Phantasmagoria: The Visions Of Lewis Carroll alongside a bevy of pasty-skinned beauties but have you seen the badass trailer yet? You might as well because that seems to be all we’re getting. They’re shutting it down for being too shocking. This isn’t really news.

Progressive Nation Interview: Jordan Rudess of Dream Theater on Prog, Portnoy and iPhones

October 21st, 2009

When progressive metal godfathers Dream Theater landed in Glasgow to wow the wits out of far-from-innocent people with 113/19 time signatures, Chris Cope sat down for a quick chinwag with keyboard wizard Jordan Rudess

In a few hours he’ll be onstage, headlining the Glasgow SECC, but just now Dream Theater keyboardist Jordan Rudess is pretending to be a normal human being and lounging in a hotel bar. There’s a red carpet outside, but that’s for the Indian wedding guests congregating behind us, not for Jordan, or indeed Thrash Hits. The cheek.

Twilight – They’re making films for emo kids!

October 30th, 2008

Paramore Hayley Williams Josh Farro Jeremy Davis Zac Farro Thrash Hits

There’s this girl, right? She just fell in love with a vampire. Let’s make a film about it! They made a film about it. It’s called Twilight and it’s partially soundtracked by Paramore.

You can watch the dramatic trailer for Twilight on YouTube, if you really want it. It looks pretty LOL. Paramore are contributing a couple of songs to the soundtrack as well as a moody, dramatic video. Did we mention the drama?

Watch (Hayley from) Paramore in the woods, doing ‘Decode’

The full video for ‘Decode’ will be unleashed upon the masses on 03 November 2008.

We know that there are more films tailor-made for emo kids but can’t remember what the hell they are because, basically, we didn’t watch them. What are they?

The long wait; the anxious feeling; the knot in the stomach. Jelly legs. And that was just the bus ride to the record label offices where I was to be treated to a listen of the brand new Metallica album.
