Re: Hammerfest 13

I like Lordi so far but that's about it. Seems like it isn't just Bloodstock struggling to book people, everyone's downsizing . Shame, as Birmingham definitely doesn't have the same vibe as a holiday camp. Really? Doesn't seem that different from previous line ups tbh I mean I'm assuming Unleashed ...

Re: Next Announcement

I don't get all the negativity on here. Hoblin Goblin IPA is still on the line up and there will be music too! Might be back at the camp for Black Dahlia Murder but the rest are ok. Yes. But you can get it in 'Spoons for £2.30 and even cheaper if you go to a cheap supermarket. Rather than the £4 or...

Re: worst band on the lineup ?

- Diamond Head, if i wanted to see grandads on their death beds, I'd just go to the old folks home :o Yeah. A bit bizarre seeing as it's only Tatler that is anywhere near old and they are far from being the worst band on this line up. Even though the "new" singer is a bit ropey. Similar c...

Re: Wacken 2020

I'm sure Maiden were gutted you weren't there. I've always fancied going but am never organised enough to get round to it, I always like the diversity of the line up it generally has. Yes, but me not giving money to Iron Maiden Holdings is a small victory. Trying to turn it into Iron Maiden Fest by...

Re: Wacken 2020

2009 was my last year. Didn't bother with 2010 as I didn't want to stoke Iron Maiden's egos and it was starting to go too much into mainstream territory with bands like Motley Crue. One of the reason we started going in the first place was Dynamo was going too mainstream and booking Nu Metal bands. ...

Re: Bands Changing Musical Style

For me it depends if they can make it sound like a natural progression/evolution than just a wholesale switch up. Metallica are a good example (and the reason why bands who aim to "make our black album" miss the point) of a band doing it right. Discharge and Celtic Frost are the good exam...

Re: Bands Changing Musical Style

What I hate is when bands drastically change and then piss over their entire back catalogue and even ridicule the fans who put them where they are in the first place. Metallica is a prime example. Remember them laughing at old footage of when they were still a Thrash band and had long hair when on t...

I'm hoping Kreator for Saturday special guest :D


Can't see Kreator supporting Behemoth. I was thinking Sodom, Rage, Grave Digger or Destruction maybe.

More likely to clash with Saxon which is just as bad.

Re: Next Announcement

Decent announcement to get people to buy early bird tickets. Then I expect nothing else of interest to get added. Still sitting on the fence about whether not to bother for the first time.

Needs some German Thrash.

Re: HRH metal 4

No you just get a few emails or texts. Never had a phone call off them and I've certainly not had any contact from third parties. Not seen any deals on the Goth one though apart from one in September when it was announced. However it's coming up to Christmas so sign up and keep your eyes peeled as a...

It's time to get rid of the multi-millionaire, public school educated, racist, serial womanizer who has never done a days work in his life.

Why not ask this forum or even the awful FB page for 2-3 Priest songs that they would Petition for Turbo IN FULL So they are going to play an album that totally tanked in the UK, where they lost vast amounts of their UK fanbase, for which they boycotted the UK on the tour and refused to play here f...
