Sunday Slaylist: Sonisphere 2012 – What Might’ve Been

April 1st, 2012

Queen Brian May Adam Lambert CANCELLED Thrash Hits

There’s not denying it – for UK rock fans, the cancellation of Sonisphere 2012 was the biggest news story this week. Unless something incredibly dramatic happens later this year, we’d put good money on it being one of – if not the – biggest news story of the entire year. It’s because it’s such a momentous news event that we’re dedicating this week’s Sunday Slaylist to the acts that were supposed to be performing at Knebworth this Summer…only with an extra little twist….

Norway’s Theatre of Tragedy have made a sizeable contribution to the Scandanavian Goth scene. Their first few albums (Theatre of Tragedy, Velvet Darkness They Fear) have received more than a few nods of appreciation over the years. Even the electro-pop Assembly, released in 2002, was seen as a positive step. But do they still have something to offer?

Live + Photos: Bullet For My Valentine, Lacuna Coil, Bleeding Through & Black Tide @ London Alexandra Palace – 15 November 2008

Bullet For My Valentine

Bullet For My Valentine are playing in front of about 9,000 people. Slayer did the same thing last month but with a much stronger supporting line-up and over two nights. Some might say there is no justice.

The fact of the matter is that Bullet For My Valentine are a Top 5 charting band in the two most important countries and they sell records to the people that matter – people that actually give a shit.

Bullet sell records to the people that will also show their love for a band by actually turning up to see them play the songs on that record.

Yes, large portions of those people are very young girls, ably escorted by similarly young boys but don’t let that fool you.

Their brand of modern metalcore is absolutely not as true to traditional metal as many demand. That’s what makes is modern rather than traditional. The years don’t start with the number 19 any more, FYI.

This is a band that is going to be around for a while yet. This is no flash-in-the-pan pop band. They write real songs for real people.

Take the chap to my left in his mid-40s, for example. To him, this is as real as any metal band. His hangover, tomorrow morning, is testament to that.
