Re: Next Announcement

Size of his following aside, my question on Devin would be - is proggy noodling a good choice for a festival headliner ? Especially a 'party' festival like Bloodstock where someone like Dee Snider or Evil Scarecrow draws a massive 'good time' crowd ?

Re: Next Announcement

Saxon announced as special guests for Judas Priest on their German dates next summer so I guess they're nailed on as SG's for the Sunday of Bloodstock too! I sincerely hope not. Very boring band. Although it seems inevitable. Back to the pavilion with your heresy, and take my mixed metaphors with y...

Re: Last Gig/Next Gig Thread

Last - Beyond the Black in Manchester. Support band were some goth-emo types with a lot of image, but the music was rubbish. The bass player was a dead ringer for Chelsea Wolfe though, which was disconcerting. Beyond the Black were very good - most of the band at some point worked the crowd, there w...

Re: Next Announcement

So is it because its priest that no one is up in arms about a repeat booking like they were with Slayer, Megadeth and many more that had more of a gap? I think it's more down to the relative scarcity of Priest gigs in the UK - cos of the Ozzy tour, the last BoA appearance has been their only gig in...

Re: Next Announcement

So is it because its priest that no one is up in arms about a repeat booking like they were with Slayer, Megadeth and many more that had more of a gap? Every other comment I've read has been moaning about Priest playing again too soon. A few people saying it's too soon - but no-one complaining that...

If they'd booked them, they'd have been announced by now, surely ? They want to shift some tickets this year I think :lol:

Re: Next Announcement

Paradise Lost is a solid booking

Rest is a bit reheated leftovers ? (Pantera, Type-O, 80s pub bands)

Mercyful Fate/King Diamond, Helloween, Saxon, Amon Amarth, ZZ Top, Alice Cooper, Accept, Judas Priest : If at least two of these are not in the headline/SG/hour slot and substituted with sub-Copping hipster metal bands then BOA can GTF next year Watching some piss awful shouty version of Holy Diver...

Re: Epica

Simone can't sing live https://media.tenor.com/images/2672a2395ef37486b779fa43cd10b16b/tenor.gif She's been flawless both times I've seen Epica. You are fake news! Seconded. Plus, none of the metalcore gym bunnies can sing at all ! Simone wins by virtue of being able to sing even on an off day !
