Thrash Hits on

We know we’re damn good at what we do. We’ve got nominated for awards and stuff, so we’re not totally out of our gourd to have that opinion. You probably think we’re at least pretty good at what we do too, otherwise you wouldn’t be here reading this. And the folks over at think we’re pretty damn good at what we do too – that’s why they asked us to be the latest entry in their Best of the Blogs feature over in their Originals section and to inform the masses of users about three bands we’ve been listening to recently – Black Moth, History Of The Hawk (Did we mention that we were hosting History Of The Hawk’s album release show in November, where they’ll be supported by Throne, Empress, and Cult Cinema? And that tickets are a mere £4 in advance? Do your duty, dear readers), and The Armed.

Anyway, go check out our blog for here, and while you’re at it, you should go and join the Thrash Hits group on to see how you compare to some of our other miscreant readers.

Bill Ward/Black Sabbath spat continues; internet gossip-mongers rejoice/despair.

We like a massive feud as much as the next person – after all, ridiculous band-drama is our bread and butter here at Thrash Hits – but this ongoing Bill Ward/Black Sabbath situation is really starting to get ridiculous. As soon as we’ve posted one missive from a band member on the situation, another one pops up. And being the (ir)responsible website that we are, we have to keep posting them.

Black Sabbath HAVE responded to Bill Ward’s statement….in the pettiest way imaginable.

Y’know when Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, and Geezer Butler released that terse little statement yesterday, saying they weren’t going to respond at length to Bill Ward’s prior essay on the ins and outs of why he wasn’t going to be part of this year’s Black Sabbath reunion? Well, it turns out they’ve responded to it in a different way.

And it’s one of the pettiest, most childish – and admittedly, inventive – ways imaginable.

London Tattoo Convention upgrades for 2008

July 24th, 2008

Mr Cool Ice Thrash Hits London Tattoo Convention

The fourth annual London International Tattoo Convention will take place on 26-28 September 2008 at Tobacco Dock, Wapping.

Having become one of the more crowded conventions in Europe over the last three years, The “Number One Alternative Event of the Year in London” has outgrown its previous location of The Old Truman Brewery, with over 20,000 people visiting in 2007.

There will be stalls on the ground floor with almost 200 top artists from all over the world including Tim Hendricks, Horitaka and Tin Tin and well as Phil Kyle and Nikole Lowe. This is the convention that everyone agrees to attend.

Downstairs will contain a fetish market and a Torture Garden-created nightclub in the Vince Ray Rock’n’Roll Voodoo Crypt. The freshly tattooed Thrash Hits .com will undoubtedly head straight for the pie and mash stall via the real ale bar before hitting the Voodoo Crypt.

Tickets are available from the official website, priced at £20 per day or £50 for a three day pass. Bargain.

Through the ages, tattoos have traditionally been found upon the arms of outsider folk like sailors and prisoners as well as badges of honour and solidarity upon the skin of soldiers and nobility. These days, it’s all about fashion for some people.

Mr Cool Ice (pictured, above) is a great example of the lengths some people will go to for fashion. Wise? Probably not. How about this young lady’s ‘tramp stamp’? Lovely passage, though.
