Imagine if someone chucked current Arch Enemy and Architects in a blender. It's truly generic -core that only gets any attention because the vocalist is female.

Re: Epica

Epica are brilliant live, you get a lot more of the 'metal' out of them onstage than you might under ten layers of Latin and choirs on the albums :lol: I do think their older songs are far better live, particularly 'Consign to Oblivion'. The live version from their Paris show a couple of years ago ...

Re: Delain

Black Wizard wrote:'We Are the Others' sucks though, so I won't be posting a link to that song.

Double yes. Started off as a guilty pleasure, and now has the coveted 'iPhone shuffle really likes them' status.

Re: Tarja UK Shows - March 2020

Her solo stuff isn't great, and I haven't tried out the new album yet, but still tempted - I could listen to that woman read out a shopping list for a model railway enthusiast's duller second cousin.

Re: Next Announcement

Seconded - who wouldn't love a good long Saxon playing the hits set !

Even the arms-folded-fest black metal fans will sing-along to 'Princess of the Night' or 'Rock the Nations' :lol:

Gamma Ray

Fun, heavy, loud, sing-along METAL

One of those bands (like Powerwolf) that work hard, get a crowd into it, and if you don't know the words at the start of the song, you know the chorus by the end of the solo

Re: BOA 2019: Rate the bands

Given that by accounts iv heard Parkway Drive got an alright sized crowd despite how busy the campsite ...
