Re: Next Announcement

Worth pointing out to those that weren't around that European bands didn't tend to play the UK unless they were established or got a decent support slot. It wasn't a case of jumping on Easyjet or going through the Channel Tunnel. Mercyful Fate were meant to support Manowar in 1984 but pulled out and...

Re: Next Announcement

No such thing as subheadliner (in this context).

The second band down are Special Guests. I don't know where this idea that third place band are anything special has come from...

Re: Vinnie Vincent

Can't be many band members kicked out of his own band that was even named after him. :lol:

Re: Next Announcement

That virtually confirms that the rest of the line up is going to be full of filler nobody wanted as they've spaffed all the budget on one big name headliner again. :rolleyes:

Re: Iron Maiden 2020

THEY ACTUALLY HAVE SOME DECENT SUPPORT! :o Where are the decent support apart from Lord of the Lost? All I see is Airbourne, Alter Bridge, Disturbed and Within Temptation :P Correct. The biggest pile of Kerrang friendly shite known to man. Airbourne are alright, but they are still just a pub rock b...

That's awful for clashes. :(

Thankfully Skyclad clash with Fen so I won't have to see fake Skyclad murdering the songs again.

Re: HRH Vikings II - 30th Nov & 1st Dec 2019 - Sheffield

Lack of Viking bands? Is that why Warhorns has been going for eight years with far better line ups than this?

The bands are out there. Just that the vast majority of potential punters don't know any bands so they have to book bands they have heard of.

Re: Next Announcement

I see they are continuing the trend of booking shite bands from the '90s that nobody cared for even then. Hell, I even remember them when they had a bloke singing for them..... Good announcements for me- and your crack about Mina is uncalled for and NOT funny I remember when they had the tough guy ...

Re: Ozzy & Judas Priest UK/IRE Tour 2019

Easy solution. Just don't go and see him then. No one is forcing anyone to go...

Or is it just Judas Priest fans being pricks. It's not like Judas Priest refused to play the UK for something like ten years is it?

Re: 2019 Albums

Some shitty Nu Metal/Industrial band from the 2000s that was hyped as the next big thing.

They had quite a bit of airplay on Kerrang and Scuzz. Not that I watched those channels, just that they were always on in the pub's upstairs bar.
