Re: Sonisphere Football 2011

Didn't turn up because I assumed it would be muddy as frakk and some guy on my team said he wasn't gonna be playing anyway... oh well maybe next year!

Re: The saturday night mud wrestling!

It started by a few of us standing around watching people slip in the mud and cheering when they did. Eventually a couple of drunk guys turned up at the same time and started loving the attention that they got, so they started sliding in the mud and stuff like that. Then more and more people turned ...

Re: Security Complaint

Yeah. Basically what I read into it is this: Certain security people (obviously not all) see us as scum, they therefore don't care about our enjoyment of the festival and are more than happy to throw their weight around and act without getting a clear grasp of the situation first. Bundle people into...

Re: tent thieves

Only saw one incident of tent theft this year. A group of 4 guys were suspiciously milling around tents about about 3am on Saturday night. I actually saw a couple of them go into a small tent, emerge with a few beer cans and then walk off never to be seen again. A mate who I was camping with had act...

The saturday night mud wrestling!

It was in the campsite right by the arena entrance closest to the Bohemia stage, and it lasted for ages! Did anyone else find that guy in the white shirt and bow tie insanely creepy? Pikachu girl should have joined in. :(

Re: Security Complaint

Sounds like you got pretty much screwed over mate. I got bundled into a van last night for absolutely no reason (I was just in a crowd of people who were shouting Slayer a lot), and then I was taken to the security hub or whatever it is and kept there for about 20 minutes (along with about 10 other...

Re: Negative Feedback

Security in the campsite were using some quite disturbing tactics, bundling kids into the backs of land rovers and whatnot. They seemed to just grab people at random out of crowds of troublemakers and drive off in their trucks, there was no logic to it. Almost seemed like they just wanted a bit of a...

Looking forward to this guys. People in my team, do you wanna meet and find somewhere to have a kickaround for about half an hour on the friday night so we're not total strangers when we play in the actual tournament? :)

Yeah that is a biggie, didn't think of that.

And IMO technicality can be used to good effect but many bands overdo it. The Faceless for example are just boring because it's an incoherent, technical mess. Decapitated don't make that mistake though.

Re: Decapitated - Carnival Is Forever

Winds of Creation is in the top ten or fifteen death metal albums of all time, I would argue. I'd also argue that it's probably the most influential and important death metal album of the last 15 years. For that album alone they are right up there among the DM elite, and that's before you consider t...

utter bollocks. Nothing wrong with Darkness, Korn, Pendulum, Rob Zombie, SOAD, letlive etc. If you think this year's is the worst ever then you need to broaden your horizons, combined the headliners have sold 150 Million albums. Pretty much all of those bands are now irrelevant though. Korn, The Da...
