Re: Wacken 2020

Borknagar! Plus Avantasia and Lacuna Coil. This is shaping up to be yet another great Wacken lineup.

Pretty much. Only three bands across the weekend for me, with perhaps another three that I'd watch if I was there. Very weak.

Re: Van Canto

Just announced for Sabaton Open Air 2020, the same weekend as Bloodstock Well that's unfortunate. In previous years, it's been the weekend after Bloodstock. I was thinking of going again next year. I guess I won't be now. As for Van Canto, I'd say no. Their studio output is fine, but you can't do a...

Re: Metal 2 The Masses 2020

The bands we have competing (along with how they describe what they do) are as follows Blimey. That actually looks quite reasonable. The London ones have been almost exclusively filled with aggressive shouty nonsense for years. I've tried giving some of them a chance, but have largely been unimpres...

You could make a strong argument for Sabbath. I happen to disagree, but I can see why that claim would be made. I just don't see it for Motörhead.

Yes, they did. I was underwhelmed. From my review: "It feels as though they want to be Dimmu Borgir, but they lack both the songs and the stage presence to do so."

I very much agree with this. Yes, two years is a short gap. But at the same time, it's their 50th year, and they are in my mind the single most important band in the history of heavy metal.

Re: Visions of Atlantis & Edenbridge Shows

Edenbridge were abysmal when I last saw them in Bilston, and VoA are kind of OK but don't really thrill me. I'll consider it.

As others have said, that's heresy! It's their best album and even if the title track isn't the strongest, it's still decent enough. But yes, I'd obviously very much like to see them back at Bloodstock.

Re: Next Announcement

So far, there's only one band for me on this year's lineup: Gloryhammer. Of the rest, Devin and Dark Tranquillity can be OK on their day. Jinjer are dreadful, but were inevitable, given the (inexplicable to me) hype that's been following them around of late. There are still plenty of bands to be ann...
