Re: Enslaved UK Tour 2021

Very small venues. But May? Probably not I'm afraid.

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

Well, over here we're onto the "second wave". I'm thinking that surely the human race can't be that stupid that we can't learn from this one and eventually get this thing under control so that we can have shows again. Is it really a "second wave" ? It just looks like full lockdo...

Re: Heilung UK Show 2021

I've genuinely never heard of them. Black metal I presume.

Re: Nu Power Metal

I'm not sure I agree with this. The power metal label has always covered a variety of sounds, and that's still true today. Do today's power metal bands sound different to yesterdays? A little, yes. But probably no more so than any other genre. There is a division between second wave black metal and...

Re: Nu Power Metal

I'd fully disagree about Gloryhammer - I find them to be irritating and overrated. Personally, I think they come across like they think they're way better than they actually are. I have the opposite opinion. I personally think they are the best "new" band of the last five or so years. The...

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

I reckon we'll have a phased return of gigs without social distancing. Perhaps tiny venues like the Camden Underworld will be allowed to host events in March if winter goes well, with larger venues opening again in May then June for arenas and festivals. The Arena one is interesting, if you assume ...

Wind Rose have confirmed that they are playing so we'll be popping down to this. All things considered, obviously.

Re: Lamb of God / Kreator / Power Trip - UK Tour 2021

I've never understood why promoters think having a tour the week before fucking Christmas is a good idea.

1. Under 45s with no health problems
2. 45+ with no health problems
3. People with health problems + their carers if they have one.

Not necessarily in that order

Pretty much financial suicide, even if it was logistically possible.

Re: Outdoor Gigs

Interesting that on the government website it says: smaller-scale indoor performances can be piloted in COVID-19 Secure venues once approved by the government. I assume this is seating only. The key point here being "Covid -19 secure" Properly designated in and out entrances/exits and one...

Re: Outdoor Gigs

Struggling to see 'normal' gigs returning in August. Now - socially distanced gigs with mandatory face masks? That might happen. (Face masks allow the SD limit to the 1 metre instead of 2). I don't understand how you can enforce social distancing, regardless of one or two metres, at an open air gig.

Aye, saw that tour at the Rescue rooms in Nottingham. Ten years ago? Blimey.

I’ll be going on the unleashed day and hoping it’s also the day with Dismember and Demonical.

I believe that I saw a Facebook event post that said day tickets will be available from July 15th.
