Happy with Corrosion of Conformity but no idea about the other bands!

Ghost bath is the only one here that really floats my boat. Still nowhere near enough for me to get a ticket though

They were able to get away with it because they had previously concealed their identities.

Personally think it's a strong year for BOA (for me) at the same time for every great booking they then drop the ball and book a Stuck Mojo :eyes:

Although after being treated rotten the last few years, I want one or two more thrash bands. Either Death Angel, Coroner or Sacred Reich and i'll be content :D

Can't believe some people are pleased with the announcement of Evil Scarecrow after they have played so many times, complete waste of a slot imo, oh well I'm sure there will be something else to do.
Quite pleased about Corrosion of Conformity though, but not interested in any of the others.

Even if you're on the fence I'd go see TS, last UK show so better to take a punt on it now than regret it later.


Cool I will check them out, which songs/albums would you recommend?
Yeah that's true, I will try to catch them!

The Fear is often viewed as their best album but Obnoxious isn't as bad as people make it out to be.

Ghost Bath - best announcement so far - never even heard of them, but when I checked out their 'Moonlover' aklbum, I instantly fell in love with them! Right up my street.

Evil Scarecrow - love them, but I've seen them an unbelievable number of times (probably over 30?), and 3 times since their 2014 appearance. I will enjoy them on the day would have preferred a band that hasn't played before. (Also, this will make Evil Scarecrow the first band to play the festival 5 times)

Corrosion of Conformity - they're ok, I prefer the Pepper Keenan version to the version that played in 2012, so I might give them a watch if nothing else is on

Unearth - I thought somewhere deep down I might be able to enjoy them (I spent my teenage years listening to metalcore and I still love Killswitch Engage) but upon revisiting them, they are completely wank and I will be avoiding.

XII Boar - complete shite that I had the displeasure of watching once several years ago and the singer was an offensive bellend. Shall be avoiding at all costs!

I liked Acid Reign, but was never really a fan of Xentrix.

Moshkinstein is still the best thing they released though. :P

This version however is just H and some mates. I'll give them a watch, but not expecting much in case it's a disappointment. I'm wondering how some of their more political songs stand up now as 2015 is a very different world to 1988.

It was mainly because when that EP came out they were playing all the time so all the songs became very familiar. They were on the support bill for virtually every Thrash gig going. :lol:

Anyway I heard they liked Black Sabbath. :eyes:

To be fair, Acid Reign only made one EP and two albums...the 2nd of which is generally derided. I'd probably say The Fear is them at their best although I never understood what people had against Obnoxious. Been ages since I've listened to any of them mind!

Obnoxious is actually my favourite-and Creative Restraint(track 1) is H's favourite Acid Reign song.
Great band-i'm glad they are back-and don't let the fact that only one original member is with them now put you off seeing them.

As long as they play Humanoia I will be happy.

Motherly Love and Bully Boy will be a bonus!
