BLOODSTOCK FESTIVAL - SAT 31.08.2002
By Tim Medway
ummm lets see... quick breakdown of my experience of bloodstock...
sleeping on the way there despite jimmers loud grindy metal comin out of
the speakers 3 inches from me head... ["Heartwork" by the mighty Carcass, no less... - Jimmer]
KFC! whooo! cheap and nasty. 2 for the price of one...
first bands weren't anything really special... maybe part from biomech..
who at least got the crowd going...
ran in to an ex-girlfriend just before Primordials set... i had to go buy
a ring in fright...
Basically, pretty much all the bands on the second stage were great.
Bal Sagoth were excellent. well worth the £20 i paid to some bloke outside
the gig for the tickets... and the main reason i can't really rotate my head
at all today...
the bands on the main stage were not exactly my cup of tea, shall we say..
was it Freedom call that had a song that started out like 'the final
countdown'? i don't know, i didn't stay long enough after i heard that
that said i did like a bit of blind guardians set; lord of the rings and
some of that cheesy acoustic they stuck in...
Bonzo berating jim on the way out... shes a scaaaary lady...
so, yay -
for the second stage.
Bal Sagoth, Elvenking, Primordial and Return to the Sabbat
and nay -
to the ex-gf.
to the main stage.
to Freedomcall and Gammaray.
there you go... i'm sure you don't need another crappy review seeing as most
of ya were there anyway... but hey my two cents are only £1.50 at 6p/min...
