Re: Next Announcement

Supposedly the government are saying that every adult in the UK will have their first jab by the end of July, which surely bodes well for Bloodstock if true. Doesn't necessarily mean much though, especially if travel corridors aren't open by then. They said everyone would be OFFERED a jab by end of...

Re: Guess what date gigs will be back to normal (no social distancing)

I'm not confident they even know how long the covid antibodies last following two doses of the vaccine. of course they don't, they literally started testing them a few months ago. however, they are very confident that they provide at least 12 months worth of immunity. it really doesn't matter if we...

Re: Next Announcement

just to throw some numbers out there, a quick Google suggests there are 55 million adults in the UK. It's just shy of 29 weeks to Bloodstock, which means that we would need to vaccinate around 1.9 million people per week to have given everyone at least one dose by then. we're currently well over tha...

for me, probably seeing Sabaton at the Slade Rooms in Wolverhampton. it was already a pretty small venue for them in fairness, but it was great to see them in such a tiny room.

Re: Guess what date gigs will be back to normal (no social distancing)

if (and obviously it's a big if) the government hit their target of vaccinating 2 million people per week, that's 56 million people by the end of July. at that point transmission should be pretty much non-existent and it will be hard to justify keeping restrictions in place. as you say, it's the int...

Re: Guess what date gigs will be back to normal (no social distancing)

My sister pointed something out to me the other day that I hadn't realised. Not only do we need to vaccinate the whole country, we have to keep doing it. I have to have a new flu jab every year so this will be the same. Hopefully as the infrastructure gets better this will become easier to do. it'l...

Re: So much for Iced Earth...

ah, the old classic "people need to be more politically tolerant" followed immediately by "you're not smart because you have a different opinion to me" it comes down to people not wanting to support and put money into the pocket of someone who they have fundamentally come to disl...

Re: So much for Iced Earth...

you think one bloke being an SJW and vocally anti-racism is the same as someone being involved in what amounts to an attempted coup along side genuine Nazis?

Re: 2020 Albums

it's not been a vintage year, but these are my standouts:
Delain - Apocalypse and Chill
Distant Dream - Point of View
DGM - Tragic Separation
Katatonia - City Burials
Nightmare - Aeternum

even then, Delain and Katatonia are capable of doing better.
