The thing in 2003 that had Testament, Nuclear Assault and Death Angel (as well as a sprinkling of black and death metal bands...I think Amon Amarth and Marduk were on the bill as well?) would easily sell out a 2-4,000 venue in London. But an actual festival would struggle without booking the real big names.


I would argue it'd be safer and better in the long term to keep it in a venue around 1-1,500 to be honest; if you put it on in Brixton you would run out of headline bands too quickly. Megadeth and Slayer can already play Brixton without the need of this fest so you'd have to throw a lot of money at them to convince them to play at the fest and not as their own show. Other than that your left with Kreator, Anthrax and Metallica (if they want to specifically play the fest but you can't rely on that).

If you kept the fest smaller you increase the pool of headliners: Testament, Exodus, Anthrax, Overkill, Kreator, Coroner (if they get themselves together), Voivod and a reuinited Sabbat. So keeping it smaller would be more viable in the long term I'd think.

Yeah I was thinking a smaller thing, with the largest bands the likes of kreator and Anthrax etc. Anyway it could fluctuate slightly with size, and sometimes put a rarer small headliner on with maybe a stronger undercard :yes:

I'd certainly be up for that...Anthrax are possibly too big as well mind now that Belladonna is back.

To kickstarter! I'll have to think of a name though, one that shows i'm different from other festivals, says more for the fans by the fans. How about Alternative Festival? Or Alt-Fest for short?

Next date - Camden Underworld, London 13 December with Evil Scarecrow, Savage Messiah and Bull Riff Stampede.

Oh damn, I missed that! Might do that instead of Morbid Angel.


No way I'd miss Morbid Angel for them each to their own, spose the new Morbid Angel album was rubbish, but hopefully they won't play much off that! Plus Covenant in full!


Yeah I don't know if I will. I've never seen Morbid Angel and I do really want to go. It's just the idea of Lawnmower Deth and Evil Scarecrow at the same show! I can't afford both.

I probably will end up seeing MA, I have seen Scarecrow twice now. (Never seen Deth though :()

Evil Scarecrow are a bit of fun. But to me it seems most people only want that fun at a festival....

I'm in a similar position to you, I have tickets to the Saxon London date on the same night but also want to go see Lawnmower Deth (that line up is awesome!) but I can't make my mind up :/ I've already got my tickets to MA though, that classic album in full is going to be amazing! :yes:

I've heard a new one about a Black Metal band beginning with B headlining the Friday. If so it'll be another repeat.

Behemoth? Thought they were supposed to be death metal these days. That would be disappointing if true, they only played 2 years ago...

Behemoth would be a fantastically bad booking, not just for my personal tastes, but for the festival as a whole.

I hope not. Be a disappointing booking.

Behemoth is another band I've kind of gone off. The Satanist was a very average album and there is so much fanboyism about them that it kind of just makes me switch off. That said, I do like their early early stuff a lot still!

So that means I might have seen their Satanist setlist 3 times by August next year....yipee.

I totally agree about the album. It was released with a lot of hype, but it felt like a little bit of a sell out. Some of the tracks sound really poppy.

With everything said though, I wouldn't mind them headlining if it meant we didn't have to have someone like Hatebreed or machine head headlining.

I think the only song on the latest album I really enjoyed and have ever revisited was Ora Pro whatever its called lol. It was almost like a return to Zos Kia Cultos.
