Amorphis – Forging the Land of a Thousand Lakes

July 16, 2010

Label: Nuclear Blast

Yes, it’s a perfectly ample and well sounding live recording. I’ve heard better live ones, but it’s not terrible. Just kind of pointless like all live albums. But it exists. More importantly, have you ever had a live album that was actually good? As in better than just getting the actual albums?

Children of Bodom and Fear Factory Co-Headlining Bloodstock 2010, Placebo, Papa Roach, BMTH, Fear Factory, Henry Rollings Confirmed for Sonisphere Knebworth‏

December 26, 2009

The UK’s premier indie metal festival, Bloodstock Open Air, is already looking to be pretty sick next year, even though the fond memories of this summers event are still fresh. To add to the already certifiably hardcore line up including Cannibal Corpse, Suffocation and Behemoth, the nostalgia tinged metal of Fear Factory and Children of Bodom (who I saw right back at Bloodstock indoor in 2004, when I was like 15) has also been added to the pretty varied line up. Also added are Amorphis, the Finnish melodic metal band who’s debut album surprised me in that it was actually pretty good. Anyway, Bloodstock lineup so far is:

OBITUARY  :  ROSS THE BOSS  :  RAGE  : ANDROMEDA  :  BEHEMOTH  :  DEVIN TOWNSEND : DORO : LEAVES EYES : SUFFOCATION : DREAM EVIL : CANNIBAL CORPSE : KORPIKLAANI : GWAR : CHILDREN OF BODOM : FEAR FACTORY : AMORPHIS

Sonisphere, already famed for hosting “The Big Four” in Poland in 2010, has also been busy in the UK leg in Knebworth, having also confirmed Fear Factory, as well as now Placebo, Papa Roach, BMTH and Henry Rollings. Line up so far is:

IRON MAIDEN
RAMMSTEIN
ALICE COOPER
ANTHRAX
BRING ME THE HORIZON
THE CULT
FEAR FACTORY
HENRY ROLLINS (SPOKEN WORD)
IGGY & THE STOOGES
MÖTLEY CRÜE
PAPA ROACH
PLACEBO
SLAYER

We’ll keep you in the loop of any further developments.
