I shouldn't even joke about this! :eyes:


Well out of my area of knowledge now, know none of them!


Seriously?


I've never heard any stuff by Toranaga, Zed Yago and Spider....i guess they're too old school for me, and I'm not sure why they've been grouped with early 90s Kerrang plugged no-hopers.

For anyone wanting to investigate Clawfinger more, y'know.....don't. They were/are some dreadful Swedish RATM clone with even more cringeworthy lyrics, even if someone doesn't know them they must have heard that bloody "gimme the truth, the truth motherfucker" turd of a song. Rosegrove is a personal favourite with the wonderfully poetic "do this, do that, come here, you twat" lyric.

Kerbdog were some shitty Irish Britrock band that Kerrang plugged to death, thinking they'd be the next big thing alongside The Wildhearts, Terrorvision, Therapy?, The Almighty etc, they never did that and never got anywhere, simply cos they were a big pile of shit.

Personally I'm hoping for some more emocore. There's not enough on the Thursday
/ Friday / Sunday. I didn't get these neck tattoos for nothing.

(are Ill Nino really still going ?!)

I was at Wacken Winter Nights last weekend, and in the wristband queue there were loads of posters for smaller fests (mainly German ones, but a few from other places), and Clawfinger were on pretty much all of them. I didn't even know they were still a thing. So they are around doing festivals all summer, it is actually a possibility.

I thought the same about Gloryhammer when checking out other festival posters. Seem to be playing everywhere. Could they be due a return?

Is it too much to hope for a few Sophie stage bands I actually want to see between Swallow the Sun and Cradle? I'm not hopeful.

I really want some good bands for the Sophie stage on Sat.

Aborted for the main stage.

Skeletal Remains, The Lazys, 3 Headed Snake, Boss Keloid, Dust Bolt and Red Method for the Sophie.

Boss Keloid are superb, Aborted are alright, the rest I'll need to listen to.

Well that was an anticlimax.

Dust Bolt! Great news for the barren Saturday. I fucking hope they don't clash with Swallow the Sun or Anthrax though!
