Re: So much for Iced Earth...

Its beyond naughty boy for sure. He is probably going to jail. . I don't think there's any probably about it, he's certain to get a jail sentence for this. Still I'm sure Jon Schaffer is consoling himself that at least he's not Black Wizard, what with Gandalf's lawyer on the case; who cares about d...

Re: Album of the Year - ROUND 2

1) Enslaved
2) Solstafir
3) The Ocean
4) Svalbard
5) Winterfylleth

For my tastes and also a pleasant improvement on recent years, I thought it was a pretty good year for releases. Shame I didn't get to see any of these performed live

Re: So much for Iced Earth...

Iced Earth’s Jon Schaffer has turned himself in to authorities after participating in the Jan. 6 pro-Trump mob riot at the United States Capitol Building as Electoral College votes for now President-elect Joe Biden were being certified. WishTV reports the FBI confirmed Schaffer turned himself in at...

Re: Mono

Absolutely 100% behind this idea. An absolutely amazing live band who I think would go down really well in the tent.

Re: Marko Hietala leaves Nightwish, Nightwish issue short response

bands don't appear to get what they deserve from Spotify etc, and that should be sorted our really. Fixed that for you! Seriously I think that the amounts paid to artists by streaming sites are scandalously low and they are damaging music per se. Perhaps I'm just old fashioned in my approach to thi...

Re: So much for Iced Earth...

I really hope you wrote this entirely off your own back and not because you actually took any ridiculous threats of legal action seriously. This! If I recall correctly there have been a number of occasions when certain people or a certain person ----mentioning no name for fear of getting sued!-----...

Re: Marko Hietala leaves Nightwish, Nightwish issue short response

Interesting where their go from here, obviously it won't be the end of the band cos Tuomas writes everything, but he's become such an integral part of their sound and his voice is quite unique and not immediately replaceable. I am sad to see him go, but definitely not irreplaceable. They are on the...

Re: So much for Iced Earth...

Am I the only one that saw Gandalf's comments not as a "keyboard warrior" but jokey and tongue-in-cheek? Yes, I don't think that grumpy old fuck has ever been "jokey". Wow I don't come to the forum for a while and suddenly it's back to semblance of life with threats of legal act...

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

Last night's announcement just proves that until a vaccine is rolled out to enough people, particularly enough vulnerable people, then we are essentially stuck in this constant loop of lockdowns, partial lockdowns, tiers, etc. Everything they've tried since March last year is akin to forcing a squa...

Re: Behemoth/Arch Enemy (+ carcass) UK Tour

I'm definitely up for this. Shame that Arch Enemy are not on last as I could leave early as I have not much interest in seeing them. Carcass and Behemoth on the same bill makes attendance obligatory.

Re: 2020 Albums

Recent standouts for me are: Countless Skies - Glow Dark Tranquillity - Moment Both excellent albums - the Countless Skies one feels like a real step up from their previous one (which is a compliment as New Dawn is a good album) and the DT one is a belter and whilst I liked the previous two ones th...
