Re: Next Announcement

For me Sunday is looking excellent, a few bands I fancy on Friday, but Saturday has slim pickings for me at the moment, with the exception of Paradise Lost and Vio-lence. I'm trying to train myself to like Behemoth, but failing. Plenty of other things to do on Saturday though, particularly the previ...

Re: Bands that got away... so far.

ZZ Top, played Scotland once and tickets sold out almost immediately. (annual Xmas present). Was in the same boat, but I finally saw them at Wembley Arena last year. They got up on stage and played for about 59 minutes, then walked off. They played well for those minutes, but for the high cost of s...

Re: Next Announcement

The bands I enjoyed most last year were on the Sophie stage - Grand Magus, Bong Cauldron, Taake, Guardians of Tome, Boss Keloid, Witch Tripper etc. This year not looking quite so interesting at the moment, but you never know - there's still time. Looking forward to Night Flight Orchestra, Green Lung...

After seeing Metallica at Twickenham, that would be my concern too. Some of these venues just don’t work for bands

Re: Next Announcement

Who the hell are Bloodywood?? From Wikipedia: "Bloodywood is an Indian metal band from New Delhi, formed in 2016. They began as a parody band that uploaded metal covers of pop songs on YouTube, but later went on to write their own original material." Sounds like headline material to me :l...

Re: Next Announcement

So many good bands playing the festival circuit next year (e.g. Mercyful Fate, Avantasia 20th anniversary, Saxon, Testement etc etc ) that it will be interesting to see who is announced next.

None of those probably though.

Re: Next Announcement

After ‘bad medicine’ by Bon Jovi, the Tom Robinson band, and now the Down ‘N’ Outz, I think I will assume the rumours are correct, check back later for confirmation/ a surprise

Re: Next Announcement

Clutch just been announced for Into The Grave along with Devin, Paradise Lost and Gloryhammer. Could they be a headliner? Certainly big enough, but not sure quite the right genre Personally I’d love it, but understand it wouldn’t suit everyone No band is ever going to suit everyone .... Saw them at...

Re: Desertfest 2020 - CoC, Orange Goblin etc

Glad you liked The Keg, they're my mates band. Chuffed they've got on the bill here. I thought they were excellent - one of ...

Re: Desertfest 2020 - CoC, Orange Goblin etc

That’s a pretty good lineup. Would love to see Orange Goblin and Corrosion of Conformity at Bloodstock, and I thought Brothers Keg were very good when they played at VIP in August
