    There's a new Slipknot album in the works so I think they're a nailed on act, so knowing this I'd quite like to see; BMTH Tool Slipknot As our 3 headliners, as Slipknot will make the festival sell, Tool are that rare legendary act and the festival would be bumping up a headliner which is something they need to start doing sooner rather than later.

    Tbf if it's not done well (and I genuinely don't think the guys doing the sound on second were doing their job properly at all as it sounded ropey all weekend long on that stage) a 20m difference in where ones standing can cause vastly different experiences in sound. Like for example when me and my mate was watching Milk Teeth we were right at the front and it sounded spot on, but then when our other mates saw us and met up with us from the back of the tent they thought it sounded awful with too much high end causing a ringing sensation in their ears (I've seen similar reported else where about this set).

    I'm sorry mate but it sounded awful, where were you standing?

    I was on the left inside the barrier up until Welcome To the Breakdown where the kick drum and bass massively overpowered the mix. Then I went for a piss and a beer as I couldn't stand how shit it sounded, and after that I was just a touch infront of the sound stage on the left, and whilst the sound was a bit better it still wasn't right and they were still boring to watch. Never been so disappointed in my life by a band I was really looking forwards too.

    One of my biggest gripes of recent years has been all the shit dance that has been played at Piccadilly whilst Relentless has been going on, why can't they keep Piccadilly as a indie/rock/metal night until 3 when Relentless ends then have it mixed up with a variety of stuff. It's especially annoying with how god damn long it takes to get into the Silent Disco which at least gives you the choice of 2 channels to choose from.

    What an awesome weekend. I agree with the sentiment that Avenged were amazing, and probably the headliner of the weekend, but I was seriously impressed with all 3 and thought they all brought their a game. My other bands of the weekend were Alexisonfire, Rolo Tomassi, Milk Teeth, The Hives and The Fever 333. My biggest disappointment was Rise Against, I've never been as bored at a punk gig in my life before, what a load of shit they are live, and I really should have fucked them off half way through the set to watch all of The Hives.

    Yeah I think the line up is good this year tbh, the only thing being is I think Bullet headlining 2nd against Ozzy, Rise Against 4th down and add a proper sub (Stone Sour being the biggest omision) to the line up and I thinkg it would be legitimately really strong.

    I think other than Glastonbury and the smaller festivals (but how long the smaller festivals continue to do well I question, with Kendal's weaker than normal line up being a prime example) that all the festivals are really struggling to pull together decent line ups on par with previous years. I do think though that the undercard has suffered a bit because of GnR though, and I can't exactly imagine Ozzy was particularily cheap.

    I did the thing, but it just played a video and did a loading thing to 100% (which can't be right because of Paramore, PVRIS and Pale Waves to name a few) and then never gave me a playlist :/

    There is a Hell is easily their best album IMO. Not convinced their next album is going to be good at all

    The Cornell tribute was the high point of the set, and then it was obvious that everybody were just there for Bulls on Parade and Killing in the Name off, but it's like Devilman said, they're just a bad tribute band, and the album fucking sucks, and I kinda hate everything that it's about, as it just seems like a senseless cash grab from a bunch of old men having a midlife crisis, with no regard to what Zack stood for (even if I don't agree with some/most of it). So yeah I really just don't like any of it and don't want them to return.

    I'd like it if Prophets of Rage never turned up again tbh.

    Except The Kooks and The Wombats haven't played main in the past 12 years at least... I agree with the last paragraph though.
