Re: Vandenberg UK Tour

I've never really listened to Vandenberg, but I've heard of them. Whats the best place to start? Internet say the S/T.

Re: Manowar European Tour 2021 (No UK dates)

Still amazing live. A euro trip is a big deal, so I’ll look at it closer to the time.

Re: 2020 Albums

New Paradise Lost is fantastic. I've enjoyed all their albums to a degree, but this new one has that special feeling that has been lacking since the 90's. A tentative shout for album of the year imo.

Re: Next Announcement

These suggestions are hardly like for like to replace Behemoth. Dimmu would be much closer in style, if you're talking about previous sub headline acts stepping up.

Re: 2020 Albums

I'm a bit late with this, because I got the record late, but never mind. The new Nightwish isn't quite working for me, which is a shame. There is some interesting stuff and big ideas, pushing things further than before, but it's leaving me rather cold. The song 'Harvest' is also a total turd, it kil...

Re: The Meaning of Metal

Re: Next Announcement

Behemoth and idle hands where two good ones. Ouch. I felt that, bar the Sunday, it was a v weak lineup, so I'm hoping it gets beefed up a bit more for 2021

Re: Next Announcement

The way they are talking, I think that next year will be an expanded festival. Maybe they will make Thursday a full day and add another day on the end. They have probably kept all the headlines and will add extra ones and add more stages. Prices will go up too.

Re: Next Announcement
