5 Reasons Why 2015 Is Going To Be A Great Year For Hard Rock & Heavy Metal
5. AC/DC Are Back On The Road
An AC/DC World Tour is always something to shout about and as this could very well be their last, we seriously need to make the most of it. A world without AC/DC is going to be a sad place indeed but at least we have the music to remind us of the astonishing impact these Antipodean (and 1 shrill Geordie) Rockers have had on the music industry over an astonishing 40+ year career.
Rock Or Bust is still fresh in our minds and while it’s not in the same league as their undisputed classics Let There Be Rock, Highway To Hell or Back In Black, it’s still a solid Rocker, stuffed with all the elements that make AC/DC so universally loved.
New album or not, it’s the classics we all want to hear in a live environment; “Whole Lotta Rosie”, “Thunderstruck”, “Back In Black”, “Highway To Hell”, “If You Want Blood (You’ve Got It)”, just the thought of seeing the boys play these tracks live one more time is enough to improve anyone’s year!
I totally agree and have been predicting the rise and return of thrash for a year or two now. That is why we will have a stack of old and new thrash bands playing this year. Keep rockin’ love the site.
Cheers Dave. The fact that Wildfire Festival has booked Lawnmower Deth, Anihilated, Disposable etc speaks volumes for the UK scene. The people demand Thrash and the people shall have Thrash! \m/
It is a really humbling moment for us in Mammothfest to be recoginised along with such other great festivals in 2015. Our energy towards the UK metal scene is massive – http://www.mammothmetalfestival.co.uk/community – so its not just about our main event but embracing the underground which, is our future while also bringing some kick ass bands to Brighton like the mighty ONSLAUGHT. A personal dream come true to be hosting them at one of my events. Honestly, this thread made our day but this is just the start, we have massive plans.
Thank you Chris.
A pleasure Steve.
WorshipMetal is a site dedicated to spreading the word on new bands, old bands, forgotten bands and everything else in between. As you say, the underground is equally as important as established bands and it was clear that Mammothfest was a festival that embraced both! Onslaught are the Kings of UK Thrash (alongside Anihilated & Virus of course) and I don’t think you could ask for a better headliner…a better live band you’d be hard pressed to find.
Consider WorshipMetal behind Mammothfest all the way….2015 is going to be killer!
Thanks for the kind words
