Re: Necessity of a Smart-Phone

I've been using the same iPhone SE since 2016. Before that I had a positively antediluvian Blackberry. Apple getting their knuckles slapped about software-forced obsolescence means that it's a perfectly capable bit of kit, is made of actual metal and glass, and has a headphone jack. I'm sure I'll up...

Re: Next Announcement

I don't know why I even bother checking these announcements any more - 6 more bands, 6 more that most folk won't have even heard of. They might as well just rename the Sophie Stage "New Blood Stage 2" at this rate. What a bottom-of-the-barrel-scraping lineup this has turned out to be. Mea...

Re: Epica + Apocalyptica UK shows

Another one BOA didn't get, for some reason :lol: Looking forwards to this - it's been yeaaaaars since I've had the chance to see Epica, and I've enjoyed everything they've put out. I haven't listened to Apocalyptica ever - I just remember a Metallica covers band - I'll have to get a best-of or some...

Re: Next Announcement

There's still only 1 band across the whole of Friday and Saturday that I'd go out my way to watch (Paradise Lost). Good grief this is looking pretty dire. Hope the weather is nice for campsite drinking otherwise I'm gonna be screwed. If you want to spend upwards of 200 quid to sit in a field drinki...

Re: Next Announcement

tbf its annoying me as yeah i feel lots of people wont check them out because of that. they are one of the most though provoking bands lyric content (sexual assult at gigs, abortion, dog breeding, femenism) wise and yeah they have hardcore elements...but to me they are a post black metal band. prou...

Re: Next Announcement

The only one I'd heard of is Acid Reign, and that's only via the caustic reviews of their latest album :lol:

Not regretting my Rhapsody / Helloween / VoA / HRH Vikings tickets yet :lol:

I reckon Delain will be there to fill up some of the space on Friday.


Glad I've been to see them in their packed-out tour venues. Seeing them in a half empty arena / on the Sophie with the joke bands wouldn't be quite the same.

Re: The UK political thread (formerly independence thread)

Fun little thing (to add a little levity to this topic) - confused Welsh village folk were Friday arguing with the woman running the shop. The reason ? They weren't able to buy their Euromillions tickets...

Re: Next Announcement

Interesting the way they are trying to sell this, as an "exclusive to weekend ticket holders" with its own poster and everything. They've never done that before. I get the feeling ticket sales are way down on what they expect, which really wouldn't shock me with this line up. Like Gandalf...

Re: worst band on the lineup ?

Objectively - Hatebreed - just dreadful, dreadful nonsense.

Subjectively - a joint win between Bury Tomorrow, Jinger, Butcher Babies, Hatebreed (add to the list if I've missed any of the other awful generic kerrangcore rubbish)

Re: Next Announcement

Well Sunday is still decent in a seen it all before sort of way, but there's barely a band on the other two days that i would watch in the pub next door. Shocking Decent? The first 5 bands on the main stage are dogshit, and fucking Hatebreed are headlining the Sophie tent. Decent? Yeah, it's defini...

Re: Next Announcement

Hatebreed, Bury Tomorrow, Sylosis.

Makes sense; the comments & discussions across social media last year were definitely full of complaints at the dearth of screamocore. Definitely remember that.

Play-for-free joke band ? or are they bigger than that ?
