Re: Clashfinder

Re: Next Announcement

Pop shite that should have no place at a Metal festival.

You do sometimes wonder what type of music the organisers actually like....

Re: Twitter

My brother!

Funnily enough I was going to use that moniker on here when I first signed up and someone already had it. Gandalf was also taken.

They have in the past. Evile springs to mind.

It's less than a month to go. Most bands will already have plans and those that don't probably won't be rehearsed. I doubt you will get anyone of note at this late stage.

The curse of Father Ted strikes again.

Seriously, if you look through the actors that played named roles many of them are dead. Some of them quite young.

Re: No Code Orange?

They'll probably just bump one of the higher Sophie stage bands up to mainstage.

I reckon Raging Speedhorn….

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

That's one of the problems with picking bands by how "big" or popular they are rather than how suitable they are. They might be able to fill Wembley or other arenas. But how many of those people are going to turn up to a field in the middle of nowhere just to see them. At a festival full o...

Re: Metal 2 the Masses 2019

The Merseyside final was last night and it was a blast. Midnight Prophecy (power metal) Came runner up and Marw (blackened sludge) were the winners. Got it in before Gandalf. :) I didn't even know about it until virtually the last minute. Been out all day so a bit pissed. We were going over the wat...

Re: Next Announcement

aren't we metalheads supposed to be a more tolerant bunch? I have seen a lot of evidence to the contrary. Metalheads are tolerant any any Metal that fits into their own image of what Metal should be, but anything else is rejected and shunned. I have seen Metal intolerance on this forum too. Metal s...

It's the 190th anniversary of the Rainhill Trials tomorrow. 1829 - 2019.
