Sorry about the silence

Posted in News on April 23, 2011 by Thorun band

It’s been a while since I posted anything new on the site; I’ve been stupidly busy.

Time for some new music for the weekend! Let’s post something that reflects the wonderful weather we’re having here in South Wales.

Well, after just 1 week the blog is doing really well. So we can connect with as many people, bands and labels as possible I have set up a 16 Tonnes Facebook page.


Or click on the FB icon in the menu.

Like our page, post on the wall blah blah blah. Thanks again to everyone who has supported the blog.


Bland Hand Records – Every release for FREE!

Posted in New Music, News on March 9, 2011 by Thorun band

Bland Hand Records are a totally independent label with a surprisingly large roster of bands. They cover a wide variety of genres but I would consider everything I have heard so far to be (I hate using this term) alternative. Now here’s the twist…Absoloutly everything they have released is availible to download for free. I’m talking 22 bands worth of stuff!

I haven’t had a chance to listen through the majority of the music but I had to share this, simply because it’s almost unheard of. This might be the way things end up in the not so distant future.  Head on over to their website for more info.



Welcome to our new blog!

Posted in News on March 5, 2011 by Thorun band

Hello all and welcome to our new, improved blog. We decided it was time for an upgrade so we closed down our old website and a new one was born. Over the next few weeks we’re going in to overdrive so you’ll need to come visit regularly for updates on releases from some of our favorite new bands. As before we will be supporting new and up’n’coming bands who fall in to the Metal, Stoner, Doom, Sludge, Thrash, Grind (and all that is heavy) categories as well as posting info on some of the more established acts.

If you want us to post or review your work then please go to the About page first to read the info on how to send your music to us. Anyone who wants to get in touch can do so through the Promote your band page.

We are also looking for contributers to write reviews.  If you want to get involved please get in touch HERE and we’ll reply ASAP.

Thanks for reading.
