    I've got my ticket for the 21st, I actually never expected to be able to see Angra without going abroad, my fvaourite metal band of all time!
    I'll be sampling a nice kebab hopefully aswell while Dragonforce bore the tits of London town, I dont think I'll even bother waiting to see if they sort the sound problems this time...

    To be fair, every time I've seen DF in London it's been at Camden Underworld, and they have been sold an absolute stinker by the sound engineers. There's no doubt the guys can play, it's just a shame I've never managed to hear them properly!

    Yes, to be honest I kind of suspected it was a purely venue related problem, given that our own sound expieriences at Camden have been, shall we say, less than satisfactory...

    I've seen them twice in two different venues where the other bands on the bill have had excellent sound and theyve sounded awfull, I've heard lots of other reports of them with bad sound too, I really hope one day they will have good sound and theyll turn my opinions round but I cant see it happening...

    If anything I actually prefer the studio stuff, purely because of the sound issues they have live. And that's rarely the case with me, as I usually much prefer to see a band live if I can.

    Yeh I've got both albums and they far surpass them live but I can't hack more than a couple of songs at a time, they get very boring very quickly...

    Angra are a relatively unknown quantity in the UK still so it kind of made sense as much as it pissed me off...
    Angra wiped the floor with them anyway... Although it must be said that Dragonforces sound was better than usual and for the most part they seemed to hit all the notes (bar one solo which sounded reminiscent of someone picking up a guitar for the first time and attempting to fake play a solo, not sure whos solo it was...)
