Weekly Playlist 19/7/17 – Relapse Records

This week’s playlist is dedicated to one of the best purveyors of noise on the planet, Relapse Records. With an alumni roster that includes everyone from Mastodon to Dillinger Escape Plan, they are a label that has always been on the cutting edge of heavy and in 2017 that hasn’t changed. We’ve got everyone from Pig Destroyer to Inter Arma via Iron Monkey on today’s playlist, and while they might not all seem like natural bedmates, they’re certainly heavy as fuck.

Weekly Playlist 28/6/17 – Warped Tour

Sadly, attending Warped Tour is a bit of a pipe dream for most of us UK types, but that doesn’t stop us appreciating from afar. So, whether you are lucky enough to be going or just want to pretend you are this week’s playlist is for you. It’s ten bands we think you should be checking out at Warped Tour. From the hardcore of Hatebreed to the melodies of Bad Cop, Bad Cop, we’ve got a bit of everything for you so enjoy.

Weekly Playlist 14/6/17 – Golden Gods

This week’s playlist celebrates the winners of this year’s Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards. When Hammer and her sister brands were pulled back in December, I can’t imagine anyone working there imagined this ceremony would be going ahead in its traditional post-Download spot. Thankfully, it wasn’t the end and metal’s great and good were celebrated in a night of what I assume was drunken debauchery. It also gives us one hell of a playlist with acts as varied as Dillinger Escape PlanMastodonAvenged Sevenfold and the mighty Black Sabbath. We might not always agree with the bands that a mag like Hammer gets behind, but we’d be worse off without them so sit back, enjoy some heavy metal and raise a beer to them and these wonderful bands.
