Main support for Megadeth tomorrow night is Lamb Of God.
I’ll hold my hands up and say I’m not a fan of theirs. Something just hasn’t clicked with me and the band. I’ve liked odd songs that have had a bit of radio airplay, or been on video channels and I’ve seen them (or at least been at the save venue) about half a dozen times – four of those when they supported Metallica in the States and Canada in 2009 – but I’ve never felt the urge to go out and buy an album!
Reports of the latest Megadeth shows have been pretty positive and LoG drummer Chris Adler appears to be getting a lot of praise for his double stint behind the kit now he’s replaced long time ‘Deth drummer Shawn Drover.
Next week is a four day week at work then I “should” be off for 10 whole days, but things never seem to work out that way with the people I work for! Also, I hope I’m clear of this niggly cold and sore throat.
Thursday – Manchester Apollo.
Megadeth roll into town on their Dystopia tour. Quite a package has been put together for the UK leg. Lamb of God drummer Chris Adler will be pulling double duty and Children of Bodom from Finland and the UK’s own Sylosis will all be treading the boards.
Friday & Saturday – Haven Holiday Camp, Pwllheli.
Two long days of metal and free flowing alcohol is looming. Forty odd bands over three days, but I’m only there for two. From 80’s New Wave of British Heavy Metal to Los Angeles sleaze via German power metal and some of the UK’s best up and coming rock bands, there is quite a choice for your viewing pleasure.
