Remfry is joined by Ben Tipple, a freelance journalist who has worked for Kerrang!, Metro, Punktastic, GoldFlakePaint and DIY, to review one of the best festivals the UK has to offer, 2000muthafuckinTrees. Remfry and Ben review 42 bands over the course of 3+ hours including Every Time I Die, Jamie Lenman, The Armed, Holding Absence, Phoxjaw, Mongol Horde, Therapy? Milk Teeth, Raketkanon, Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls, Haggard Cat, Puppy, Drug Church, Rolo Tomassi and probably for the first and last time You Me At Six.
We’ve come over all Heavy Metal on this week’s show, with Steve and Remfry reviewing new albums from Rotting Christ (Black Metal), Crystal Lake (Metalcore) and Dangerface (Not Metal). The boys also recount their experience watching ‘the most metal show of all time’ in the form of At The Gates, Wolves in the Throne Room and the mighty mighty Behemoth tones, whilst elsewhere Remfry casts his beady eye over live shows from Cancer Bats and Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes.
Trade-off this week comes courtesy of Beneath The Massacre with their debut full-length Mechanics of Dysfunction and Albany NY punks Drug Church with their third full-length album Cheer. But that’s not all … this week we introduced our first range of Riot Act merchandise (AKA Riot Gear) … T-shirts, Hoodies, Longsleeves Snapback caps, Beanies, Badges, Mugs … even a bloody drawstring bag for Pete’s sake!
