Re: Next Announcement

A one day all British fest?

Judas Priest
Saxon
Cradle of Filth
Carcass
Alestorm
Venom Inc.
Orange Goblin
Winterfylleth
Evile

I'd be all over this.

Re: 2021 albums

I think the awkwardness of vinyl is one of the main attractions tbh, ie the old school cinematic experience, I've got Cradle's remastered Cruelty on double red vinyl, and it's constant flipping and swapping with only 3 songs on each side, but that's part of the fun eh? You've clearly got a differen...

Yeah, you've gone full blown crazy here. Solstafir are one of the most interesting and exciting bands of the 21st century for me. Adore the new album.

Enslaved winning show's you've all got taste. I think. Because that snoozefest of a Demons and Wizards album in second place suggests you don't :lol:

Re: 2021 albums

I can't justify the price of vinyl, 20 quid for most new releases at least. Add to that I'm a lazy bastard and can't be arsed to keep getting up and turning the things over. I still buy CDs of albums I really like, about a dozen to fifteen a year nowadays, but generally rip them to flac and never to...

Re: 2021 albums

The new Aspyhx album is really good. I'm not easily impressed by death metal nowadays but this ticked the boxes. Frozen Soul is pretty decent, Therion is boring, Dragony mediocre, Nervosa nothing I haven't heard a million times before and Wardruna ok if I'm in the mood for it. Here completes my revi...

Re: Bloodstock Forum Album of the Year 2020

Imperial Triumphant: Alphaville This one has appeared in quite a few EOY lists and I've tried listening to it 2 or 3 times now. "Impenetrable" is a word I'd use to describe it. I don't think I'm too far away in calling this avant-garde jazz-metal and who knew that was such a popular sub-g...

Re: 2020 Albums

Don't think there was one last year. I did it for a couple of years but there are so few people on the forum now it started to become a bit pointless!

Re: 2020 Albums

Interestingly I thought it was an awesome year for metal and a rubbish one for indie. The new Idles and Fontaines DC albums were the only ones I cared for and I was fairly disappointed with FDC at that. Levellers, Jim Bob, Alex the Astronaut, AA Williams, Phoebe Bridgers, Cabbage, Jello Biafra...lo...

Re: 2020 Albums

A lot of my favourite albums haven't been metal this year (Jim Bob, Levellers, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Laura Marling, Black Water County, AA Williams, Alex the Astronaut, Ichiko Aoba, Idles, Phoebe Bridgers, Myrkur, Bob Dylan) but my top 20 otherwise (and my top 2 here are my top 2 overa...

Re: 2020 Albums

I'm really enjoying the first new Finntroll album in 7 years. Reminiscent of their first two albums, a lot more ferocious whilst still retaining that Finntroll 'bounce'.

Re: 2020 Albums

I didn't even know about their first singer, Clive Archer, until the Internet came along. Yeah, that's one of the reasons I consider Venom inc. to be more of a 'genuine' Venom band than Venom themselves. At least Mantas was an original member and it was he and Abaddon who created the band, designed...

Re: 2021 Bands Ranking List

For me the big draws are Mercyful Fate, Sacred Reich, Dark Tranquillity (although they've gone through some pretty big line up changes in the last few years), Acid Reign, Gloryhammer and Vio-lence (although some of their politics have put me off them of late) and Saxon. I'd watch Priest but it's not...
