Re: W.A.S.P - "1984 TO HEADLESS" UK/IRE TOUR OCTOBER 2020

Very tempted by this tour, and would be the perfect time to take my dad as he's missed them the last few times they've played.

Re: Next Announcement

Parkway's crowd looked large but once you got up to the where the cameras/disabled area is there was acres of space. To be honest, I think Evil Scarecrow's crowd the same day was probably quite a bit larger from what I saw. Can't compare it to the other headliners as I was too far forward to gauge c...

Re: Next Announcement

Parkway's show was magnificent. Great use of lighting and general pyro, and the sound was really good for them. Admittedly, if you don't like their style of music, then you may struggle, but that was definitely a headliner worthy show from a talented band. We had about 10 people in our group, most ...

Re: Dimmu Borgir/Amorphis/Wolves in the Throne Room- London 22/01/20

Amorphis' last album was a belter and having missed Dimmu due to their BOA cancellation it would be nice to see them again - will have to see what the cost of tickets are but this is looking rather tasty.

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

The Good The atmosphere - everyone from the staff to the fans were absolutely fantastic this year all across the weekend The bands - To be honest even the bands I didn't like at least put on a decent show from what I could see. No obvious blowouts, and an overall good weekend. The queue (or lack th...

Re: Rammstein 2020

With their biggest UK gig going on, and being in the Midlands, can't see them doing Download- I'd guess the stadiums suit them as their pyro is all over the stadium not just on the stage, and from the pictures it took nearly a week to build, so can't see them being there. The setup they had would b...

Re: Rammstein 2020 Stadium Tour

Playing Ricoh Stadium in Coventry on Saturday 20th June, tickets go on sale Friday morning. Having missed the MK gig and never seen Rammstein before I think it's about time I just bloody well went. Thought they might get a bit further north this time though. I almost baulked at the cost but ended u...

Re: Rammstein 2020

Pretty much guaranteed for at least one of Hellfest or Graspop on June 19th-21st then. and pretty much guaranteed for Download on June 12th-14th as well. I wouldn't be so sure, I think their press release said something about UK shows being announced soon which would imply a couple of stadium-sized...

Re: Next Announcement

Hmmm, I like Taake but by the time they come on the rest of Saturday will have probably eroded my enthusiasm. I like Anthrax and Cradle but other than that the Saturday is one of the worst Bloodstock days ever...it genuinely looks like the sort of festival day I started going to Bloodstock to get a...

Re: PARKWAY DRIVE - CONFIRMED AS BLOODSTOCK 2019 SATURDAY NIGHT HEADLINER

I agree the social media handling of this announcement has been terrible. The other day Vicky posted a rant on a Facebook group, saying how "disappointed" she was at the fact people didn't like it and that people were being childish. Within a few minutes comments were turned off on that p...

Re: Next Announcement

Well there we have it, arguably the worst headliner they've ever announced.

There better be something decent on in the Sophie stage that night.

Re: 2019 Albums

Bot sure of too much in the works, but Avantasia, Beast In Black, Battle Beast and Evergrey all have albums that I'm looking forward to hearing.

Re: Next Announcement

Surely neither Architects nor Parkway Drive are anywhere near big enough to headline - tbh any higher than 4th down (if they really had to book them) would be a travesty. Devin isn't a bad shout - 8 years since he last played, got a huge following etc. Would be a much better shout than the aforement...

Re: Next Announcement

I thought they'd played 3rd top but yeah, you're right. Actually I'm amazed they got billed above Testament and from memory the latter had a much bigger crowd. Blind Guardian are one of my all time favourite bands but until fairly recently they've been virtual unknowns in the UK...although things h...

Re: Last gig ticket you bought?

Just picked up a couple of tickets to take my girlfriend to Nightwish in London to celebrate 4 years together - enjoyed them in August and she's never seen them.
