08:49 - Overrwatcher Megadeth absolutely blew everyone away, but hearing older Opeth made me giddy as hell. Disturbed played pretty well. Black Label was really off.
08:34 - Maco I can guess that Opeth was the best band there in that festival.
08:33 - Overrwatcher Crowd was so dead before Opeth though (who played almost entirely old songs and were great, technical errors aside.) When HATEBREED can't get people moving you know something's wrong.
08:30 - Overrwatcher Just got back from Ozzfest, left Black Sabbath before traffic hell began. I don't even like Megadeth but they were fucking amazing.
British sludge/doom innovators Bong have a new album on the way. Their label Ritual Productions confirmed that they have completed work on the follow-up to Mana-Yood-Sushai, which is due for release on March 2014. More info is coming in the next few weeks but for now you can get a taste of the new track "Polaris" here. Oh, and it's eight minutes long.
The band also released Idle Days On The Yann this year via Blackest Rainbow Records, which is streaming at this location if you still haven't listened to it. These tracks were recorded by Bong back in the Summer of 2009, with the addition of vocals from Holly Forster.
