Bloodstock Open Air 2013

@ Catton Park, Derbyshire, UK

8th – 11th August 2013

Review by Anna Dumpe & Ben Spencer

Photography by Michelle Murphy


Imagine a weekend of nothing but pure heavy fucking metal.
Imagine being surrounded by the friendliest 15,000 people who share the same passion for heavy metal music and lifestyle. Imagine a place where it is respectable to have beer for breakfast and drinking until you drop in an accomplishment. Imagine a festival where you can see over 100 heavy metal bands and pretty much none of them suck.

Ladies and gents, this ain’t no heavy metal fairytale!

This is Bloodstock Open Air – the greatest heavy metal music festival of our times. It’s a place where metal heads run free, headbang until their heads roll off, shout ‘SLAYEEER!’ and avoid shower for 4 days straight.
It just does not get any better than this.

Our Metal-Rules.com UK team were privileged to attend Bloodstock Open Air 2013 and see things for themselves…here’s a ‘little’ insight of what went down.

GAMA BOMB unveils cover Art, tracklist and single from “The Terror Tapes”

March 5th, 2013

Irish thrashers GAMA BOMB have unveiled the artwork and tracklist for their forthcoming album “The Terror Tapes”.
The band’s fourth album, to be released on April 19th in Europe and April 22nd in the UK, followed by a US release on May 7th, boasts a cover illustrated by veteran movie poster artist Graham Humphreys who created pieces for classics A Nightmare On Elm Street and Evil Dead.

“We grew up in terror of VHS covers painted by Graham, but we never knew his name,” says vocalist Philly Byrne. “We found him, had the audacity to chat to him, and now it’s a dream come true to work together and to see the astounding work he’s done for us.
“The cover shows a man being consumed by a giant, living tape machine. It’s got the feeling of a grubby old 1980s video sleeve I think. It ties in perfectly with our obsession with old technology and mad horror imagery. It’s the best album cover we’ve ever had. Everyone else’s album art sucks because of this.”

“The Terror Tapes” will be preceded by a single for the track “Terrorscope”, available both as a completely free download on March 26th , with a vinyl release following in April.

“It was really important to us to give people some music for nothing,” says Byrne. “It’s how we get our music and we want people to know we’re cool with them doing that, as long as they support us. Support comes from a lot of different places, not just the front pocket.”

GAMA BOMB have also revealed the tracklist of the album, which will be released on AFM Records and follows the band’s 2009 album “Tales From The Grave In Space”.

THE TERROR TAPES tracklisting:

1. The Wrong Stuff
2. Legend of Speed
3. Backwards Bible
4. Beverly Hills Robocop
5. Smoke The Blow With Willem Dafoe
6. We Started The Fire
7. Terrorscope
8. The Cannibals Are In The Streets – All Flesh Must Be Eaten
9. Shitting Yourself To Live
10. Matrioshka Brain
11. Metal Idiot
12. Wrecking Ball

GAMA BOMB ANNOUNCES FINAL ‘TALES FROM THE GRAVE IN SPACE’ EUROPEAN TOUR

August 25th, 2011

Irish thrashers GAMA BOMB have confirmed a final European tour in support of their most recent album, TALES FROM THE GRAVE IN SPACE, before the band returns to working on their as-yet untitled new album.

The tour is set to kick off in early October with support from UK thrashers SWORN AMONGST.

GAMA BOMB frontman PHILLY BYRNE comments:

“We’ve said it a few times in the past, but this time we really mean it: our European tour this October is going to be our final farewell to Tales from the Grave in Space, the album we’ve been touring for the last two years.  In that time we’ve done a lot of new things and had some amazing adventures as a band, so we’re hoping to say goodnight to the album with the help of the European fans who’ve been supporting us since our first shows on the continent four years ago.  We’ll see you there for a beer.”

SWORN AMONGST added the following statement:

“We’re totally fucking wired to be heading back out into Europe again with our good pals Gama Bomb.  It’s been three years since we both shared the stage together… and if that was anything to go by, expect the overall intensity to have been upped tenfold!!!”

GAMA BOMB CHANNEL PHIL LYNOTT FOR NEW ALBUM, ANNOUNCE LIVE STAND-IN FOR INJURED GUITARIST

June 17th, 2011

Irish thrashers GAMA BOMB are currently writing new material for their as-yet untitled new album.

The follow-up to 2009’s TALES FROM THE GRAVE IN SPACE will be GAMA BOMB’s fourth album and is tentatively due to be released early next year.

GAMA BOMB frontman PHILLY BYRNE comments:

“We’re about to enter a studio in central Dublin to work on demos for our new album, which we’re hoping to release in early 2012.  In terms of songwriting, we’re writing much ‘tougher’ or meaner songs now.  We want to make music that street gangs could listen to before a fight, songs you can sharpen a switchblade to.  I’ve been looking a lot to Phil Lynott for inspiration, which can never be a bad thing.  He’s always been a big inspiration for us, even if you can’t always hear it.

“Mind you, we’re also about everything from our history of underage drinking and theoretical physics to drag racing and (of course) cannibalism, so there’s no knowing where this one is going to take us.  We’re hopefully going to record here in Ireland and we’ll pull no punches on either the speed of the riffs or the attitude of the songwriting.  That’s the only plan right now.”

GAMA BOMB are also gearing up for a string of summer festival dates, but have had to bring in a temporary stand-in for lead guitarist DOMO DIXON for the live shows due to a hand injury.

The band have released the following statement:

“As you may have heard, our guitarist Domo Dixon has suffered a tendon injury to his left hand and will be unable to play with us for the coming period.  Domo severed a tendon in a bizarre trouser accident – that’s not a joke – so will have to sit out gigs for the next three months.  We’re all very perplexed and upset about it, but are ploughing on with our upcoming European festival appearances.  Playing guitar is Domo’s passion and his life, and we’re sure all our fans will join us in wishing him a full and speedy recovery.  Until he’s back up to shredding speed, we’ll be joined on the road by our good friend Kevy Canavan on lead guitar.”

See GAMA BOMB live this summer at the following shows:

July 15 – Anyksciai, Lithuania – Devilstone Open Air
July 16 – Aalborg, Denmark – Day of Decay Festival
July 29 – Brande-Hornerkirchen, Germany – Headbangers Open Air
July 30 – San Giacomo degli Schiavoni, Italy – Armageddon In The Park

GAMA BOMB ANNOUNCE UK TOUR DATES, DISCUSS NEXT ALBUM

February 24th, 2011

Irish thrashers GAMA BOMB have confirmed dates for a UK tour, which kicks off on May 8th in London.

The band are due to do a last run of shows in support of their latest album, TALES FROM THE GRAVE IN SPACE, before taking a break to work on new material.

GAMA BOMB frontman PHILLY BYRNE comments:

“We’ll be hitting the UK for a string of dates in May which will wrap up our touring for the Tales from the Grave in Space album.  Once we’ve struck the last chord of this tour, we’ll be retreating to Ireland to begin really digging into work on writing our new, as-yet untitled album.  We’ve already written some bits and pieces and are looking forward to taking it to some demented new places, and are certain it’s going to be a radical step in a new direction for us – while still being totally thrash, totally blistering and totally GAMA BOMB.

“The last year has been amazing, making a bit of music history; touring the US for the first time; drinking many exotic drinks…  This experience has given us a taste for adventure that’s going to come across on our new material.  Before then, however, we invite all UK GAMA BOMB fans to join us in raising a glass to send off Tales in style.”

Catch GAMA BOMB live on tour at the following shows:

08 May – London, UK – The Underworld

GAMA BOMB KICK OFF NORTH AMERICAN TOUR THIS SATURDAY

October 20th, 2010

Irish thrashers GAMA BOMB are gearing up for their first ever North American tour, which kicks off this Saturday, October 23rd in Seattle, Washington.

GAMA BOMB will be tearing around the USA and Canada with the likes of OVERKILL, FORBIDDEN, EVILE, BONDED BY BLOOD and DRI, and will be out on the road until just before Christmas.

GAMA BOMB frontman PHILLY BYRNE reveals how the band has been preparing for such a huge tour so far away:

“Speaking to embassy people through bullet-proof glass; working out how long a pair of underpants can be made to last; factoring in strepped throat, voltage converters and flu pills: just some of the work that has gone into bringing GAMA BOMB to North America this winter.  Dollars feel more like money than Euro – they’re thicker and crunch up nicely.  We won’t be seeing too many of them over the next few months, but we’re jonesing to get to the US and begin the tour to end all tours.

“If you’re reading this and are in a good mood, please bring us some real moonshine, hooch or bath tub white lightning (test it first for potability – we can’t afford to go blind) or failing that your local beer.  We intend to drink America.”

GAMA BOMB GEARING UP FOR NORTH AMERICAN TOUR

September 29th, 2010

Irish thrashers GAMA BOMB have just wrapped up their “Graveyard Disturbance” headlining European tour, and are now gearing up for their first ever North American tour.

The band will be kicking off the massive North American trek on October 22nd and will be teaming up with the likes of OVERKILL, FORBIDDEN, EVILE, BONDED BY BLOOD and DRI.

GAMA BOMB frontman PHILLY BYRNE looks ahead to their first American tour:

“Touring in America is one of those things that every band, every musician or bedroom rockstar dreams about.  Even bands from America don’t get to tour America.  We’re lucky enough to get the chance and are really excited about it.  If any tour we’ve ever undertaken can be described as a great adventure, this is it.  It’s going to be hard, but we’re hard men.  It’s going to be girthy, but so are we.  We’ll wear the appropriate hats and drink the right liquors.  You get the picture.

“We’ve toured with Overkill before and really look up to Blitz and the guys as friends and mentors, so it’s going to be great to spend more time with them gigging, drinking and talking.  The Overkill guys embody that American idea of ‘shooting the shit’ when they’re backstage, so we’re looking forward to shooting some shits with them.  Forbidden we’ve never met, but are looking forward to hearing them do some of their classics and getting to know them.

“Evile and Bonded By Blood are, of course, good friends of ours.  We’ve already been to some weird and wonderful places with those guys, and this is going to be the biggest adventure we’ve all had yet.  Everyone will be sick of us within about an hour of the tour bus rolling out, but that goes with the territory I suppose.  We’re looking forward to seeing America, meeting cool people and sampling the many local moonshines the country has to offer.  I head most of them won’t even render you blind, which is great.  Also, we will do good gigs while we are out there.”

GAMA BOMB FRONTMAN RESPONDS TO U2 MANAGER’S FILE-SHARING ARTICLE ON GQ

September 1st, 2010

For Irish thrashers GAMA BOMB, file-sharing has proved to be an important and recurring topic of discussion.

Having released their 2009 album, TALES FROM THE GRAVE IN SPACE, online as a completely free download, GAMA BOMB’s strong feelings about file-sharing largely oppose the views of many other musicians and artists. TALES FROM THE GRAVE IN SPACE – which remains free to download to this day – has sold just as many physical copies of the album in the short time since its release as the band’s previous album has to date, indicating that the open availability of the album as a free download hasn’t in fact harmed the band’s sales.

PAUL McGUINNESS, manager for fellow Irish rockers U2, recently posted a lengthy article for GQ Magazine in which he discusses his views on the problems of file-sharing.

GAMA BOMB frontman PHILLY BYRNE has written an open letter to PAUL McGUINNESS in response to his article. An excerpt follows:

“U2’s manager Paul McGuinness’ recent article is well-reasoned, well-informed and commendable in its aims – though it’s crazily short-sighted. It falls at the last hurdle when envisioning future solutions to the problems file sharing causes for the music industry, and is filled with logical blind-spots on the current state of the business. He’s got the numbers right, but the headspace is all wrong.

“To his credit, Mr McGuinness is here wading into an argument that, as he notes, often involves untold abuse for those willing to stick their oar in. Furthermore, it’s one that doesn’t affect his untouchably profitable bread-and-butter, U2. So who am I to gainsay him?

“Last year my band Gama Bomb released their third album free of cost as a download with the permission of our record company, Earache Records. This, to my knowledge, makes us the first signed band ever to do so.

“We took this step because we personally consume music in this way and were aware our previous albums were largely being consumed as shared files. To release another CD in the traditional way seemed futile. Also, as a band playing a niche form of music on a small budget, we were aware of the potential PR power of such a move. The label agreed, we did it, and that’s why I feel qualified to dust off my soap box on this one.”

GAMA BOMB ANNOUNCES HEADLINING EUROPEAN TOUR, STAND-IN GUITARIST

August 11th, 2010

Irish thrashers GAMA BOMB have confirmed a headlining European tour for September, before the band heads to North America in October for a two-month trek with the likes of OVERKILL, FORBIDDEN, DRI, EVILE and BONDED BY BLOOD.

GAMA BOMB will kick off the “Graveyard Disturbance” tour on September 16th in Nijmegen, Netherlands, with support for the tour coming from Danish metal award winners CROCELL.

GAMA BOMB bassist JOE McGUIGAN comments:

“We’re seriously looking forward to the GRAVEYARD DISTURBANCE TOUR: it’s been a while since we kicked over some tombstones in Europe.  We’ll be touring in a slightly different incarnation, though, as our lead guitar player Domo ‘The Kid’ Dixon will be sitting out touring for the rest of 2010 to concentrate on personal stuff.

“Our pal and original guitbox player Kevy Canavan, who played on our first album, Survival of the Fastest, will be filling in for Domo on our European and US tours this year.  As we’re revving up for a major US tour later this year, these will be our final European dates until some point in 2011, we’re not sure when.

“So get your ass to Mars (i.e. the graveyard (i.e. your local smelly club (that we’re playing in))) and help us chug some beers!”

Catch GAMA BOMB live in Europe with CROCELL at the following shows:

Sep 16 – Nijmegen, Netherlands – Merleyn
Sep 17 – Frankfurt, Germany – Effer Music Club
Sep 18 – Milan, Italy – Metal Disorder Festival

GAMA BOMB TO PLAY FREE SHOW AHEAD OF UK TOUR WITH SEPULTURA

July 2nd, 2010

Irish thrashers GAMA BOMB have announced a free show in London, UK this July, just days before the band kicks off a UK tour supporting Brazilian thrash legends SEPULTURA.

GAMA BOMB, who have recently been confirmed for their first ever US tour with OVERKILL, FORBIDDEN, EVILE and BONDED BY BLOOD later this year, will be playing the free show on July 12th at The Unicorn in London with support from local thrashers DAMNAS.  GAMA BOMB kick off their UK tour with SEPULTURA on July 14th in Bristol.

Frontman PHILLY BYRNE describes the experience of witnessing a GAMA BOMB show:

“In many ways a GAMA BOMB gig is like a Ryanair flight.  Firstly, our ‘passengers’ are subjected to a sonic barrage of babbled spoken word and mechanical screaming noises by a crew of foreign people who look bad in tight-fitting clothes – namely, us.  Secondly, we’re constantly trying to force people to drink sub-standard liquor and buy shoddy mementos.  Finally, our gigs often end with a bumpy landing and a round of applause that half the crowd don’t think is deserved.  We’re looking forward to hanging out with old friends and meeting some new ones on this UK tour with Sepultura.  Oh, and we’re going to start charging fans to use the toilet.  Thanks for flying Gama Bomb, Europe’s number one budget thrash band.”
