Re: Ozzy & Judas Priest UK/IRE Tour 2019

A bit different, but Malcolm Young had Parkinsons during his last ACDC tour, and had to re-learn the songs as he went on. BIt different for a singer but Ozzy has always been wobbly and had off-stage singers in the past, but on the Sabbath gigs I thought he was fine as he wasn't fucking around with w...

Re: Next Announcement

SGs are an odd one - the size of them is all over the place - the likes of BLS have been there and they typically play venues big enough to headline, and while Opeth aren't as big as they were they still played the same venues as Behemoth when they were SG, then you have At The Gates who play quite ...

Re: Next Announcement

Aye, but the sub-forums are dead in comparison so 5 odd years ago - the Metal Discussion and off topic ones used to be quite lively regardless of the line ups

Re: Next Announcement

Maybe, of the people who are left, they just log on at work.

Shame really, I like the format and use of the forums much more than comments under posts on IG or FB.

Re: movies

Was bored this morning so went to the early showing of Knives Out - great cast, Danial Craig with a Louisana drawl was odd but his Columbo esque detective was fun. Hopefully there will be another one with him. Looking at the end if year lists, found a Swedish sci fi called Aniara about a doomed spac...

Re: Bands Changing Musical Style

What I hate is when bands drastically change and then piss over their entire back catalogue and even ridicule the fans who put them where they are in the first place. I don't think Metalica were the worst offenders, they may have a sense of humour about they're history but its not like they stopped...

Freedom of Movement isn't as unrestricted as the right-wing media suggest (or at least, it doesn't have to be): https://ukandeu.ac.uk/we-can-control-eu-migration-we-just-havent-done-it/ There is one section (article 8) of the EU Human Rights Law signed away by Brown in the Lisbon Treaty that gives ...

Re: The UK political thread (formerly independence thread)

Quite - over 3 months and EU residents have to register where criminal records can be searched. We can do it on entry as well after regs were tightened up after the Paris attacks. We booted out nearly 4000 EU nationals last year. We had access to databases and a Europe wide arrest warrant system but...

Not sure, but I think it happened to Tommy Bolin in Deep Purple while on heroin, where he damaged his nerves and could only play barre chords

Re: Bands Changing Musical Style

It's also quite telling that many bands that didn't drastically change in the 1990s still did quite well. Motorhead, Slayer, Megadeth, etc. were still packing big venues whilst many of their contemporaries were playing tiny clubs. Hmm - each one of those had their moments, most sailed through grung...

Re: Bands Changing Musical Style

Its strange how some bands can avoid sounding old hat and others just embarrass themselves with a two-footed leap into modern sounds - Crue went from Dr Feelgood to songs about child abuse, Van Halen went from calling an album F.U.C.K to a comeback single featuring knife and gunshot victims, Def Lep...

Re: Bands Changing Musical Style

The 90s were dreadful for it - I had mentioned this on another forum - back then, the mags catered for 'the kids' and once you were out of step with them, there wasn't really an outlet, this also meant bands trying to chase trends as they had no way of getting press. Motley Crue, Warrant, Shotgun Me...
