Re: Borknagar + Saor + Can Bardd - London 28/11/20

Well, it's all subjective. But for me, the three successive albums in the form of "The archaic course", "Quintessence" and "Empiricism" are easily the highlight of their career and are as strong a run of high quality albums as any other band I can think of.

Ha ha. No. The first Vortex album is arguably the best thing they've done IMHO.

Re: Epica + Apocalyptica UK shows

From the way the bands are listed it looks like Apocalyptica might be headliners, which is a surprise to me as I didn't realize anybody still cared about them. It's a co-headlining tour, and they've done two posters for it - one with Epica as the first name, the other with Apocalyptica. I assume th...

Already got my ticket for Sheffield. Otherwise I'd have been there. Borknagar are a truly outstanding band.

Re: Next Announcement

Surprised there hasn't been much positivity towards Savage Master on here so far. They sound pretty suited to the majority's taste on this forum - melodic trad/power metal. Yep. They're absolutely the sort of band that should be being booked. It's just that they're not very good. Musically they're ...

That's pretty much the opposite of me. There are literally no main stage bands I want to see on Friday or Saturday. There are a few on Sunday though.

Borknagar! That's my attendance assured. It'll be nice to see Saor too. https://scontent-lhr8-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/83341429_539552713328277_8958213185635090432_o.jpg?_nc_cat=107&_nc_ohc=Xk6KzVRamkMAX_DCrjJ&_nc_ht=scontent-lhr8-1.xx&oh=78c79b42b9b0532b251ae4846ba69f56&oe=5EC37DE9

Re: Next Announcement

I know several people that will only be getting a Sunday day ticket. I'm just hoping that because they've put all of the good bands on one day they'll be able to avoid clashes. It's looking like Unleash The Archers will be clashing with someone. Probably Gloryhammer :-(

Re: Download Festival 2020

Soooo.... another year that Download can't produce a lineup that tempts me to get a ticket. Perhaps 4 bands across the weekend that I'd go out of my way to see, and maybe another 6 or so I'd watch at a festival because they were on. That's just not enough to justify the expense.

Re: worst band on the lineup ?

There are so many to choose from this year! Worthy contenders are sure to include Phil Anselmo, Memoriam, Skindred, Jinjer, Sylosis and probably others. But if pushed to pick one, it would have to be Hatebreed.

Re: Next Announcement

Sleep Token? Ha ha. I gave one of them a lift back to London after they played Download, only my car caught fire on the M1 and we had to wait on the hard shoulder for several hours for recovery. We got back to London some time after dawn. Fun times. They'd be a bit left field, but probably a reason...

Re: Next Announcement

It is strange how as the fest has grown this forum has died. Old guard must've all stopped caring It's not strange at all. Bloodstock actively killed off the forum with unnecessary downtime and with a hideous new look and feel a few years back. It's never been the same since. Whether that was malic...

Re: Wacken 2020

I go every year. Despite it being a huge festival, it doesn't feel like one. The atmosphere is totally different to, say, Download.
