    Yeah I thought so, just read a few glowing reviews and thought I must be going mad.

    But of course it is a relief to hear that it's them, not me!

    Yeah Anselmo's latest side project is toilet. He's lost his voice worse than Hetfield.

    @Progguitarist

    Kudos Prog, but let's face it, given both the difficulties you and your family faced recently and the unquestionable talent you showed on various musical clips, you totally deserve it!!!

    Nice work Prog - I was gonna drop some cash in too; I'll have to pick the CD up once it's done :)

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    New Revocation album stream on GuitarWorld.

    Enjoying it very much so far. Seriously, what the fuck happened with the album cover though?

    Holding off on listening to the new Revocation till I have at least a 320kbps version of it pumping through my ears. Best contemporary metal band out there if you ask me.

    I've never paid them much heed.

    Any direct comparisons for reference? (my headphones are in another room and I'm in bed, so not moving right now! :D).

    Closest comparison I can come up with is somewhere between Sylosis and Death. I dunno just give em a listen. It's tech deathy thrashy metal.

    Nice one! Will you be doing up a run of CDs for free sale, or just to cover pre orders/backers?

    Apparently the new Carcass record is 'out in the wild' as of today.

    Crikey. I don't mind a bit of Sylosis, but Death are my fave band ever, so I'm probably best to approach with no expectations.

    Iron Maiden were awesome tonight. Despite being sat in the arse end of nowhere, the set was still amazing with a few tracks I never thought I'd hear live.

    Seventh Son
    Afraid to Shoot Strangers
    Aces High (encore!)

    I've not heard of them but after looking them up, I see they have a song called "Robots 3 Humans 0". Sounds pretty cool if you ask me.

    So the new Gorguts record has made its way "into the wild", and in response, the band have put it up on iTunes.

    Nice to see a band being realistic about how this stuff seems to work (as in they're saying "look, people want this and it's ages away, so here's a legal download". Waiting on the CD myself).

    Can't remember who in here recommended Defeat Sanity's latest album ("Passages Into Deformity") - it's probably my album of the year and one of the best death metal albums this century!

    I'm in the mood for some thrash. Anything new and decent to recommend?

    Just got back from Bloodstock. The line-up was so underwhelming that I almost didn't go, but I saw more than enough good bands to make it worthwhile.

    Belphegor and Municipal Waste were easily the best bands of the weekend. Death Angel, Gojira, Sabaton and Gamma Bomb were also pretty good. Apparently Hell were amazing but I, sadly, missed them. I also missed almost all of Bossk, which was a shame as what I did hear sounded great. Kataklysm and Whitechapel are shite caveman music, Lamb of God are second-rate and neither Power Quest or Avantasia could do anything for my general nonchalance towards power metal

    Because there wasn't a great deal of stuff I wanted to watch I just wondered around for a lot of the weekend and came across some decent stuff in the tents. Best of the bunch were Gormathon: rocking black/death metal with an old guy on vocals who had buckets of charisma and a voice that can go from a growl to high-pitched singing.

    Unfathomable Ruination (shit name) were decent Suffocation-esque death metal with a sick bass player, but they were a little overloaded with breakdowns.

    Neon Halo (bizarre name) were fast death metal with some great busy guitar work counterbalanced by fascinating atmospheric fretless bass playing that included loads of half-time riffs and chords. They were only spoiled by the vocalist, who was fine at growling but shit at trying to do high-pitched screams, which he did constantly.

    The only band that I like that turned out to be shit were Dark Funeral, and that was because of the sound: all you could hear were the drums. In fact every black metal band I've seen play down the bill on the main stage have sounded terrible; I think it's a combination of them being outdoors and the style of music which leads to hard work when it comes to getting a decent sound. Unless it's a huge band like Immortal I reckon they should put them on in the tent, which would also has the benefit of being dark: seeing a band like Dark Funeral or Moonsorrow in broad daylight is weird at best.

    Slayer (or what's left of them) were dead good, but had a bit of a subdued exit. They had a cool Jeff banner. One thing that made me smile was that Kerry's guitar was much quieter than Jeff's stand-in (who was shithot BTW) was.

    Emperor next year.

    How are they still around? Who is keeping them going!? I remember seeing them at Bloodstock when they first started and thinking they were the most uninspired generic crap I'd heard. And I love power metal.

    Edit: Hah! Just checked their metal archives page and apparently this was their last show as they split up.

    Aww, their lead singer Colin is a mate of mine! He got me into Kreator and Suffocation back in the day.
