Secret's out now, forever tainted now :P


Nah. My niece was playing it. She's of that generation who was a kid when all that Nu Metal stuff came out.

Look Black Sabbath and Metallica and ACDC got their fame and fortune in a year where they have no competition. If they had to compete with bands like lamb of God Killswitch Engage Parkway Drive sikth jinja System of a Down Gojira then I can honestly say they wouldn't be as big as they are.

I genuinely don't know where to begin other than to shake my head in disbelief.


I'm more concerned there's a band called "lamb of God Killswitch Engage Parkway Drive sikth jinja System of a Down Gojira"

Has to be a troll, that can't be the thoughts of anything else.
So I gave Parkway Drive a listen out of morbid curiosity and it was all godawful, the latest album Reverence was listenable but meh, no idea how they've got so big. It kind of sounded like a cross between a bad Fear Factory lite crossed over with Disturbed and My Chemical Romance, with some metalcore and spin kick, fist flying twat breakdowns for the "tough" kids. Here's hoping something good is on in the Sophie tent, unless the organiser's decide to torture us with something bad there at the same time as well in order to punish us for our dissent :lol:

There are no bands on in the tent while the RJD headliner is on unfortunately.

Then we should all gather in the Sophie tent during Parkway Drive and sing classic Metal songs.

Patronising wanker

Whoa there buttercup. I'm speaking as one of the very few neutrals here. it seems people either love them or are disgusted that they are booked. There seem to be very few willing to give them a try and see what it's all about, that was my point. If you want a name calling competition though I'm all over that too. Thursday night at some point, next to the big wheel?

Which makes their booking totally pointless.

If you want to get new people to listen to your music then you play a festival that has a more diverse fanbase rather than a small festival that mainly has traditional Heavy Metal and extreme Metal. Download, Leeds/Reading, IOW, Bestival, etc. would be much more apt.

[snip]

But I must ask, if they are so good then why didn't you watch the whole set rather than half of it? :?


There is only Download, Bloodstock and L/R that they could play. They're too big and too "metal" for anything else, despite what some of the Bloodstock faithful might think.
I left at Download to watch another band I liked more. I checked them out en route, gave them a chance, was fairly impressed. Did nothing about it apart from hearing the odd spotify track till now. Listened some more, like some of their stuff, think I will enjoy watching them. If I don't I'll go to the bar or another stage. I can't get all upset about this. Sorry.

Awesome idea, I'm up for this, let's do it. Maybe we can drown out parkway drive with our vocal performance

Only if we can gather around the campsite afterwards and drink many a teary eyed toast to the days when metal was metal and no dirty Australians could take that away from us (apart from AC/DC) Perhaps if we sing loud enough Dimebag will rise from the dead, Slayer will postpone their disbandment and that thrash jazz poetry band from the arse end of no where will finally get ' the headline slot they deserve' despite having a fan base of 4

So why have you given us your opinion if everyone should keep them to themselves????

I watched one Parkway Drive song on youtube and it was utter wank, I was about to say I'm going to Brutal Assault, so I won't have to suffer even being at the same festival as them, but the useless cunts just got booked for BA too.

You watched one Parkway Drive song on youtube and you think it was utter wank. So what if you don't like them go to some other stage and watch some other band. They are headlineing B.O.A deal with it. Just cuz you think they are utter wank don't mean that other people think in the same way.

Can't you read?

There are NO bands on other stages when the headliners are on. That was actually pointed out on the page that you are quoting from. It's always been like that apart from one year when they had alternative bands on the tent stage.


Have you even been to BOA? If you had you would know that. 2008 sign up and has never attended? :?

So the options Saturday night are PwD on the Main stage, some (presumably) drunken Pantera sing alongs on the Sophie stage and Bisset's kneecaps getting done in on the New (literal) Blood stage.

...Gonna need a bigger new blood stage
