Anyone manage to get FFAF tickets for Cardiff? Looks like they sold out within the minute.

Seems it’s been moved to the SU too, so hopefully there’ll be more tickets released.

Tried, didnt get them. They've added a second show to the uni. on Sunday 27th. Tickets go on sale tomorrow.

Gwar and Voivod are touring here in November/December, I'm pretty tempted as that's gonna be one hell of a show.

Their latter albums were great though. Welcome Home Armageddon, Conduit & Chapter & Verse were all really good records, it's just that they weren't seen as being current & many ignored them.

For years FFAF were one of those bands we'd always go & see whenever they toured. When they announced their farewell shows it was a bit frustrating as they played these massive shows & people were claiming to be upset they were kicking it in the head. Where were these fuckers when they were playing to 110 of us in Chester on a Thursday on the tour prior? 

I could be one of the few that really liked their third album. Was a perfect come-down from that emo phase that happened in the early/mid 00's.

Lamb od God have been really crap for over 10 years in my opinion BUT Power Trip and Kreator is an absolutely irresistible pair to me.

Totally and utterly unrelated note - any chat on the Tool album?

I’ve given it 5 listens, and I’m getting along with it now, I wasn’t with it on the first go round though. The streaming version has the extra interludes that the CD version, or the “what sort of idiot is paying £75 for a CD in 2019” version, doesn’t have. One of them is called Chocolate Chip Trip, and whoever said that was OK to leave the studio needs fucking shooting.

It gets better on repeat listens as you notice little bits that might have missed the previous time, but ‘Pneuma’ could have been shorter and not lost much, while ‘Invincible’ and ‘Descending’ (the two new tracks they been playing live this year) are very good and ‘7empest’ finishes the album well.

There are certain parts were I felt like the guitar could’ve sounded a little thicker, similar to the sound on Lateralus, but that’s just me. Hard to say where I rank amongst the rest of the back catalogue at the moment, but it’s a very good album for the most part. Just don’t get caught up in the “you have to smacked out of your head to understand it” horseshit that comes with Tool fans

I thought it was good on my first listen but felt it would improve on repeated listens. It's had the absolute opposite impact though. With each listen its gotten more tedious.

I say this as an absolutely enormous fan of Rush fwiw.
