Bands that got away... so far.

Which bands have you never seen, but still really want to. For me, number one is probably Iced Earth. I’ve been into them since I was a teenager but I’ve somehow missed them every time. I’ve been lucky enough to see most other bands I’ve been into. There is the odd underground-ish black metal band l...

Re: HRH Vikings III - O2 Academy Sheffield - 28th/29th Nov 2020

Also, this lineup has way more depth than most HRH events. I wonder if that is a conscious decision or happy accident. Either way it’s a good thing.

Re: UK Death Fest

Sacramentum Is the only real draw, but it’s a big draw! Never thought they would get back together!

Is Nuclear assault the first headliner?

It’s a risk putting it on when Knottfest is on too. I wonder if both of those fest been scheduled for august has had an impact on the weak Bloodstock lineup.

Re: Download Festival 2020

I'm not so bothered by the prospect of missing Killswitch as I saw them four times with Maiden in 2018 and once last year. I've seen Sepultura less often and I wouldn't mind briefly revisiting my teenage years and seeing Funeral For A Friend's set too. :shy: Pretty much the appeal of the Sunday for...

Re: Last Gig/Next Gig Thread

Last Slipknot /Behemoth in Newcastle. Both bands were good and I'm glad I got to see Behemoth as I'm probably missing Bloodstock, however, I felt a bit ill so my energy was down a notch.

Next Rhapsody of fire in Manchester!

Re: worst band on the lineup ?

Has to be Hatebreed. I don't dislike them anymore than other bands I don't care for on the bill, but they have played so often it's a bit silly really.

Re: Next Announcement

I do love PL but they really aren’t big enough for that position on the bill. Something must have gone wrong for the bookers.

Re: Next Announcement

Sunday headliner next year will be Evanescence I also expect Bodycount,Code Orange, Dog Eat Dog and Evil Scarecrow I would like to think I am joking Well, I think your right in your implication. That could well be in the lineup now. It would probably run along with other better (from my point of vi...

Re: Next Announcement

I like the headliners still, but that is, for me, the weakest undercard they have had. Sunday only for me, if that. There is either a money issue, or a band availability problem; or a straight up choice to go in a slightly different direction with booking imo. (Maybe they're just testing the water f...

It would be good to see the fest give this type of band a shot.

Re: Next Announcement

I still love the forum. People on here are (usually) way more intelligent than your average social media poster.

I'm really hoping Iced Earth are announced.

Re: The Health 'n' Fitness Thread

Isn't that what happened to Dave Mustaine a few years back, only a lot worse?
