Re: The Hu UK Tour 2020

Aren't those pretty big venues for them? May end up going to Bristol anyway though.

Re: BOA 2020?

They said the first headliner is coming in September - any tours finishing around then? When is the Volbeat tour?

Re: Dear Joey DeMaio

If that were the case, how would bands like Hanowar or Womenowar get to play the festival - there's no way they could afford to pay Joey every time they did a live show. I know its a different stage, but unless the main stage is broadcast somewhere, surely they can't have to pay. I'm not trying to s...

Re: BOA 2019: Rate the bands

Thursday Rotting Christ - 7/10 - they were ok, pretty poor setlist for me though Friday Xero - 7.5/10 - good solid start to the day Death Angel - 7/10 - not a fan of thrash but these guys were pretty good Metal Church - 6.5/10 - they weren't bad, not spectacular either though. The Hope Burden - 8/10...

Re: Dear Joey DeMaio

Since you're probably here and all butthurt... Ross the Boss smashed it. Sorry. Why would he be here? :? Yep. I bet he's really unhappy with all the royalties he's just earned by doing absolutely nothing.... I'm pretty sure you don't get royalties for live performances. Maybe if they showed it some...

Re: BOA 2020?

I'm also expecting Hatebreed. Probably Dimmu and Code Orange as well. Have they announced anywhere where the bands they have booked are going to be placed? Violence are above Skindred, who were third down last time so are they special guests? Sacred Reich are on a par with them on the announcement -...

Re: Next Announcement

Yeah, Vicky claiming that Parkway had the biggest crowd they've ever had at Bloodstock - no way that was the case, that's bullshit. I don't think she realises that a lot of the reaction to the Parkway booking in the first place was because of her own social media posts and her attempts at stoking th...

Re: Next Announcement

Parkway were really good, but their crowd didn't seem particularly big - there was loads of space around me, and I wasn't really far back. Sabaton's was bigger. It wasn't particularly small either though. I think Devin and Behemoth could both headline, but not in the same year. I think next year we'...

Re: BOA 2019: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly.

Good The bands. Watched very few dodgy sets throughout the weekend. Sabaton, Powerwolf, Eluvieite, Ross the Boss and Grand Magus in particular smashed it. Even Parkway were good. The lack of queues. The festival felt quieter than previous years, but not having to queue for hours to get in this year ...

Re: Dimmu Borgir cancel

Really can't complain about the replacements to either cancellations - considering I was expecting just a New Blood band being pushed up, they seem to have solid replacements. In fact, for me, both Wildhearts and Batushka are upgrades (although in Code Orange's case, a dead dog onstage for 40 minute...

Re: Next Announcement

Loving how quickly that because a show of one-upmanship. I don't give a shit about Parkway but fair enough, he's in a wheelchair.

Re: Next Announcement

I've seen quite a few for the Scorpions as well. Very few for Sabaton oddly, only one saying their album came out. Maybe that's just because they know they'll do well.

Re: HellFest 2019

He sounds like such a child in that rant. Adding the word "fuck" every five words does not make your argument more correct. And I feel so bad for those people who were only there to actually listen to some actually good metal, not this old guy ranting about something most of them probably ...

Can't really notice anything new there...except for the fact they have taken away a campsite unless I'm mistaken. Interesting. Selling badly?
