Take a good look at the artwork for Gnarwolves’ first full-length record (click the Read More tag below, yeah?). If you’ve seen a worse album cover this year then please let me know. A mountain of skateboards, a garish shade of green and a font that could’ve been lifted from a Goosebumps novel; it’s pretty much exactly what your parents picture when they think of punk. But as bad as it may be, it’s a fitting representation of the Gnarwolves circus, which has probably rolled into your town at some point over the past of couple of years.

Thrash Hits TV: Thy Art Is Murder vs #LinkinNARC

Thy Art Is Murder Download Festival 2014 by Ben Gibson Thrash Hits

When we went to Download Festival 2014, we had planned on asking all the bands what they would do if Linkin Park ratted them out to the cops (not sure what we’re talking about? Here’s a link to Sublime With Rome’s version of what happened when they played a festival with Chester Bennington and co at a festival in the USA). However, we got distracted by drinking booze and watching bands and only did a handful. The best of our videos – by far – was when we caught up with our old friends CJ McMahon and Lee Stanton from mighty Australian deathcore monsters Thy Art Is Murder what they would do if Linkin Park grassed them up to the fuzz.

The ethereal leanings of their earlier works have been shed and with their latest release they’ve grown a more coherent and altogether heavier sound, that benefits from A Eulogy For the Damned’s assured, singular feel.

You always know what you’re going to get with a band like Weedeater. The’re no dodgy MTV Unplugged records, or band members quitting to go find themselves or the big man upstairs. No, with Weedeater you get headlines like ‘Frontman Accidentally Blows Off Own Toe Whilst Cleaning Out Favourite Shotgun’. And that there’s the pure essence of what makes this sludge metal power trio tick.

Down-tuning, singing about the occult and getting as stoned on the sweet leaf as possible – just some of the cornerstones of metal that Black Sabbath pioneered. Stoner metal still owes a huge debt to albums like Master of Reality, and it’s not too high praise to say that Accelerated Living by Saviours can sit comfortably beside that record.
