STRONG PRESENCE FOR SPINEFARM ASTISTS AT UK’S PREMIER ROCK ‘N’ METAL EVENT…
All you rockers, ready to get down ‘n’ dirty at Donington with the Download Dog can lay witness to a plethora of Spinefarm bands on a variety of stages throughout the weekend (June 12-14); start out on the Friday with our lads in DECADE, who guarantee to get you jumpin’ for joy (just don’t expect them to replace the beer that’s sure to be all over your T-shirt/ shorts/ head).
Take a quick hop-step-lunge over to the third stage and get low for the mighty KROKODIL. A too-cool-for-school, arm cross and head nod is not going to cut it here; that growl from frontman Simon Wright will penetrate your soul and resonate in the pit of your stomach! EMBRACE THOSE RIFFS AND ROCK THE FUCK OUT.
Now that you’re suitably sticky, why not head over to THE CADILLAC THREE? If you follow in the band’s footsteps, you’ll soon be a few whiskeys in, “getting your buzz on!” But hey, “they’re southern and it ain’t their fault”…
What you do with Friday from then on is nothing to do with us! But make sure you get some shut eye as Saturday marks your opportunity to see the other-worldly magnificence that is PURSON…
A new signing for Spinefarm Records and a bloody exciting one, singer, guitarist, songwriter Rosalie Cunningham fronts this UK outfit whose music touches on a variety of realms, including folk, prog, psychedelic, gothic & classic rock. GROOVY!
But there’s no time for tired limbs on Sunday as that’s when those dashing Scandinavian siblings, VON HERTZEN BROTHERS, will be bringing their own brand of stadium rock to the stage. This will be their first ever Download appearance and it’s one certain to turn a few heads. If you’re a fan of Muse, Soundgarden, Foo Fighters or even Queen, VON HERTZEN BROTHERS have the credentials to become your new favourite band.
Now, I’ve heard rumours that you like your rock HARD? Well, I’ve got a treat for you: G.O.D.S.M.A.C.K. Oh yeah!!! Boston monsters of rock GODSMACK have been a much-missed commodity in the UK, having not played here in six years, so rev yourself up at that barrier, my friend, cos that fist has some air-pumping to do!
Talking of fists, grab all of your pals because Alaskan metallers 36 CRAZYFISTS are playing main stage, motherfuuuuckers! And, oh my, do they deserve it! Following the release of current album, ‘Time and Trauma’ – which won the guys top-notch reviews across the board and saw them playing every town on this little island of ours – they are back by popular demand. Come join Brock & Co. as they drag us all in for a bloody great bear-hug then spit us all out, wind-milling all over the place. THIS SHIT’S FOR REAAAAL!
