Martin Walkyier goes Skyclad

Postby new empire » Tue Sep 01, 2015 9:18 am

Martin and the boys absolutely smashed it at Beermageddon on saturday. There's absolutely no reason they won't get the crowd bouncing at either the Sophie or Main stage.

When Skyclad played last year they were good, but the vocals were not up to sheer venom that Martin spits out. It was great to see and hear the master at it again. Get 'em booked. Get 'em WAAAAAAAAAAAY up the line up where they deserve to be. We neeeeeeed this more than repetition of Opeth, 1349 and Cannibal Corpse.

Real Skyclad has Martin on vocals!!!

Skyclad last year were ANYTHING but good. :lol:

Martin Walkier in any shape or form gets my approval.

Last time I saw him, his backing band walked out on him, so he ended up playing Venom songs with M:Pire Of Evil and didn't play any Skyclad songs! Not quite what I was hoping for, I have to admit...

Outstanding at Beermageddon. Far better than that joke of a band going under the name Skyclad.

But I doubt he'll play Bloodstock anytime soon after his recent comments on corporate festivals.

Well, they didn't even get on the plane. Massive disappointment, but M:Pire of Evil doing Venom songs with Martin was pretty good. I doubt we'll get that again.

Not so good for those of us that don't like Venom and had turned up to see him playing Skyclad songs, though...
