As for the biggest- Slayer or Priest Makes a lot of sense (the divide) - I went back to my tent for a pre-Taake nap during Parkway's slot, and the site w...

Re: BOA 2019: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly.

The Good - Bar staff - really cheerful the whole time, despite the constant tech problems / beer problems / some people problems. Special shout to the girls in the Red Bull tent that got soaked the whole time as it offered no protection from the rain when serving / standing near the bar. Friday / Su...

Beyond the Black in Manchester. They're catchier than a catchy thing in a Frenchman's bedroom. Don't judge me.

Re: Recommend an album from this years line up!

Powerwolf - Blessed & Possessed - they got three songs off it for Wacken, and learning the words to Armata Strigoi is, pardon the rhyme, a joy.

But it's not like he's disabled or anything. Jeff Becerra is paralysed FFS.


Change.org petition - Parkway5 to stop abusing and missing their bassist, by forcing him to play in a wheelchair. :lol: :lol:

Re: PARKWAY DRIVE - CONFIRMED AS BLOODSTOCK 2019 SATURDAY NIGHT HEADLINER

Re: Next Announcement

Watching the Download film last night, I can safely and happily say I don't mind if they keep booking these awful emoscreamocore bands - At least they're not booking rappers.
