Speculating Sonisphere 2012 Slaylist Thrash Hits

Well, this week Sonisphere finally broke their silence and announced some of the bands that will be playing their Spanish and Finnish festivals this year. As yet there’s still no names for Knebworth, and as Metal Hammer noted, some of the names that are playing in Madrid and Helsinki are playing Download in the UK, and therefore seem highly unlikely to make the UK edition of Sonisphere. But it got us thinking – what bands could be playing at Knebworth this year?

It’s time for The Great Escape 2011 so we’re off to Brighton for a few days to drink beer and get a dry face and fuzzy ears from watching bands while standing near to a large, salty body of water.

You may have seen our article harping on about being a partner on Foursquare. It’s good. It’s already shown us that we go to the Crobar too often but because of that, we did our first Heavy Metal Tourism guide to London and we based it all on this fair city’s watering holes.

Next up? You’ve done drinking, so now it’s time to go see some bands. We’re not going to tell you to go to Brixton Academy or Wembley Arena. That’s obvious. You know that stuff already. The smaller places, however, might be news to you so here are a bunch of awesome pubs and bars in London which also have bands playing. You can also get drunk in them, FYI.

Metal Mark has a quiet month. WTF?

October 20th, 2009

Our man on the ground in Atlanta, USA checks in and chats about September. Metal Mark had a quieter month than normal but still saw DOWN, Gojira and had a chat to Max Cavalera. Nice.

What’s up my metal people! September was a rather slow month when it comes to shows in Atlanta, but there were two great ones. The first day of the month, DOWN rolled into town with a killer lineup of bands, which included Evil Army, Weedeater, and The Melvins. All the opening acts were awesome, but everyone was there to see one band and one band only – DOWN.
