As the saying goes, good things really do come in three’s! Now on our third day at Bloodstock Festival, we woke up bright and early to check out even more of some of the premier talent to come from all over the world at this gathering of grungers, this congregation of Metallers and what better way to kick things off this morning that the haunting stylings of Ghost Bath.
Ah the days of summer, the ability to be confident that leaving the house with a (black) t-shirt is a good idea, the (black) ice creams shared and of course the abundance of (black?) sunshine. Though nothing says Summer quite like Bloodstock, attending our first ever festival last year we are incredibly excited to be getting back to real matters here. Knocking together a truly phenomenal line up this year we’ve got full performances of The Satanist, last ever performances, Space age Thrash and Mastodon to enjoy. We’ve picked ten out of the plethora of bands that will get any Metalhead moshing for good reason. Come with us through the rabbit hole and check out the ten bands that we think are unmissable at this year’s Bloodstock 2016!
It’s been a huge week for prog spectacles in London. With Dream Theater playing on the other side of town, Symphony X roll into the east bring their hyper-technical metal to the table, and they have set their lasers to stun.
One of the most fiercely technical albums from the progressive masters makes our 2015 list, and it’s one that’s hard to argue from any metalhead as being a masterpiece!
The progressive maestros known as Symphony X have returned, and we see what brilliance they can offer us this time around on their new record, ‘Underworld’…
Let’s face it, you’ve been playing guitar for 10 years and you still can’t play the ‘Sea of Lies‘ solo. We interview the man who has inspired 1000’s of guitarists, aspired them to be the best, and has a library of critically acclaimed albums under his belt – Mr Michael Romeo. With a new opus ‘Underworld‘ on the way, we had to ask a few questions about the album, and what keeps the Symphony X magic alive.
