Re: Next Announcement

Tesseract are a mid size band at best at BOA and shouldn't be as high up as they are. It just reeks of cheap filler It's a conspiracy - throw in some filler (Tesseract, Code Orange, the looming Parkway Drive threat) to ensure that the bar gets decent traffic. If you just have great bands stacked up...

Re: Next Announcement

Swallow The Sun are alright, but surely would be much better with a high slot in the tent. I've seen Swallow the Sun in the open air before now - their gothy-doomy thing doesn't really work in the sunshine - it needs dark and a decent fog machine & light show. Excellent music mind, but a strang...

Re: Next Announcement

I'd be very happy with Megadeth, even - they're a metal band. I'd be happy with Delain Just to be sure, you're not suggesting that Delain should headline are you? :? Certainly not big enough to headline BOA... Just stating bands I'd rather over some emo group. I'd happily take some random tiny euro...

Re: Next Announcement

Powerwolf's UK tour ends on the 22nd. That would be my preferred option, but surely we won't be lucky enough to get 3 melodic headliners? Not big enough in the UK. Maybe big enough to be special guest, perhaps. I don't have much interest in them though. One of those #hopesandprayers type things, pe...

Re: Next Announcement

Parkway's tour ends on 1st Feb so announcement on 5th, unless they go out of the Tuesday announcements which has been known for headliners. Let's be optimistic and say that Parkway Drive will not be the Saturday headliner. One of those #hopesandprayers type things, perhaps ? Surely the world can't ...

Re: Next Announcement

I doubt I would know a song by them. But I know they are one of those whiney Emo bands that was popular with the kids about ten years ago. There seems to be a strange resurgence of these emoscreamocore bands going on. Either that, or they're just cropping up in places I never used to see them. Wah ...

Re: What should happen with Brexit?

. I would say it's not simply a case of people not liking the result and trying to get it changed after the fact (though, there is that too). I would say it is more to do with other points: 1. The bus / the lies / etc 2. People not fully realising what they were voting for and seemingly changing th...

Re: Next Announcement

Haven't heard of either are they in Kerrang ? It`s gonna be Danzig, and even if it is some teenage knuckle dragging false-metal core Kerrang band i`ll be singing Danzig throughout the whole set And just once more Danzig That'd be fun to organise. Though I'd change Danzig for "sing Iron Maiden ...

Re: Next Announcement

If they can balance out the emoscreamo bands / comedy 'black metal' bands on the main stage with good stuff in the tent, they can crack on making a rubbish poster.

Putting Dimmu under Scorpions is bizarre, truly odd.

Re: Next Announcement

Within Temptation opening the main stage so they can headline in Germany later in the day confirmed then. Black Wizard has been hinting at this for weeks :yes: To be fair, helicopter / jet from Festival A to Festival B would be in the highest tradition of the genre. Get Brucey to take them on the M...

Re: What should happen with Brexit?

It was right to have a referendum given how much the EEC/EC/EU has changed since the last vote This is fine. I agree that the country's relationship should be open to periodic reassessment, particularly as most of the electorate didn't get to decide the first time around. However, it would have bee...

Re: What should happen with Brexit?

Leave in some way - Not May's deal, which is an horrific fudge by a professional politician so far out of her depth it's kind of funny. Get in some private sector lawyers, advisors, & merger men to sort it out. The EU sent professionals on their side - the UK sent the kind of people that take Tw...

Re: Last gig ticket you bought?

Sellsword in Manchester :D I wish they would up date their website. Just had a look to see when they are playing and saw they were playing Manc on the 10th of November. i.e. tonight. Then I realised that I was there last year. :lol: I had the same moment on the Zero Tolerance gig listing page - I w...

Re: Next Announcement

Think I`d rather a KK Downing spoken word as the last headliner than Within Temptation or what is passing as Slayer nowadays (Dare I say the KK Book is a fine read) Just get Judas Priest back for the Saturday, I certainly didn't hear "Electric Eye" "The Sentinel" "A Touch o...
