Does Ross the Boss play his era Manowar material? Might be worth a shot I guess as it'll be the closest I get to seeing Manowar :lol:


Yes, that's exactly what he plays, with one or two of his own songs thrown in.

Yes! Happy with Grand Magus, Death Angel and Metalchurch.
Looks like a Friday day ticket for me, Saturday looking bloody awful although it is early days.

I'll be going for the weekend but you're right about Saturday looking very thin on the ground so far (with the exception of Cradle of Filth who I would watch).

Happy with Metal Church and Death Angel and absolutely over the moon with Grand Magus, especially knowing that they've got a full headline slot.

As much as I love Manowar, Ross the Boss is an insufferable prick and his power metal rent-a-singer didn't do a good job of the songs the last time I saw them so I doubt I'll watch them. And Evil Scarecrow are a bad joke that are well past their sell-by-date by now so they can fuck off. Hopefully they'll be on early so I can avoid them.

Pleasantly surprised with this announcement :D

Never seen Metal Church before and they've been requested for a long time. Death Angel were ace in 2013, will be good to see them again hopefully in a higher slot. Never listened to Grand Magus before but I'm now checking out their Iron Will album; really good stuff and a great headliner choice. Not listened to Ross the Boss either but the fact that he plays old Manowar material interests me.

Not much to say about Evil Scarecrow apart from the fact I've got some more bingo points :lol:

Meh, nothing to catch my interest this time around.

Evil Scarecrow are a joke that got old a long time ago but they'll stick pack them in and are probably a cheap booking. Other than that, a great announcement, particularly Death Angel who are superb live.

My hopes for Demons and Wizards get fainter with every announcement. :(

As for these bands, I actually like pretty much all of them. I haven't heard much Metal Church (but I like what I have) and Evil Scarecrow are pretty boring now, but otherwise its a good announcement. Seems much lighter than recent lineups so far, but that's not a bad thing.

3 out of 5 tick the box, other two should be easy enough to avoid.

He sure does. His show last year was the best Manowar set I've seen played live since the '80s!

Well I certainly enjoyed them, as clearly visibly did most of the rest of the crowd. The band were having fun too and that makes a difference. Not sure how all that will translate to the main stage at a festival, but still should be a popular booking especially considering some of the crap that could've been booked.

That's interesting; I can't claim to know anything about Ross the Boss, but at the recent gig he was having a giggle at his own expense on stage when the singer was ribbing him about his old Manowar days, and I had a few words with him afterwards (as did quite a few people as he instantly got off the stage and started interacting with people) and I can say he came off as a really nice bloke. Maybe he's mellowed as he's got older!
