Five minutes earlier than the equivalent slot last year then.

Honestly I think the gimmick of being big hard men with their guns is what makes them popular, I could see their audiences vanishing if they stopped carrying.


The day that audience discovers gangsta rap is the day 810 break up :lol:

Also, just read an interview with the singer from Ghost (Papa something :eyes: ) and he has said:

"You might hear a few songs that we haven't played, but we won't play any new material now".

So that kind of hints at maybe a few rarer tracks getting an airing.

I wouldn't know a rare Ghost track from the apparent hits. :lol:

I am at Ba'al's local warm up show and they have just played an absolute blinder. Debuted a new track tonight (which they will play at BOA) and it is sweeeeeet (they will likely close with it). It's been a flipping great gig actually: Tides of Sulfur (sludge/black metal), Ba'al, Vow (only their 4th or 5th gig ever, black/post metal) and Mavet (doom/post metal) who came all the way from Hull to open. Playing in a tiny DIY venue with excellent sound. Cracking evening.

That sounds like a good night. Not heard of Mavet, but the other 3 are superb.

Allisaa White Gluz (the Arch Enemy singer) has said in an interview that they plan on playing 1-2 tracks from their upcoming album but will try and keep it hit orientated for the most part.
