    Their last one was St Anger- some potentially good songs, but most went on for a few mins longer than necassary (in my own humble opinion). I'd certainly be up for seeing them again though :) They're starting to record their new album now and are doing larger stadium gigs during the summer by the looks of it.

    Perhaps we should start a music/gig thread where we can chat about our great musical tastes and arrange potential gig meets...just an idea...? [face_whistling]

    Aye they are doing a new one with Rick Rubin, they're already playing some of the new songs at gigs (I'd give the Youtube links but I think they break the TOS some how :p just look up New Song and The Other New Song) Didn't you hear them playing anything new last time you saw them, Sie?

    Nah, at Download they were celebrating the 20th anniversary of Master of Puppets and played every single song from the album over a period of several hours, including about an hour and a half after they were supposed to finish :p

    And at Leeds it was only just after St. Anger came out.

    Well from what I read, they should have the new album out by the end of the year. So guess we'll have to wait for the new stuff.

    Yeah, they put on a great show, unlike some other bands who just act like they can't wait to get out of there.

    They're one of the few bands that I know that give back a lot to the fans.

    Well, they were dedicated enough to go way over the finishing time and Download, while the other headliners legged it as early as they could.

    I'd be willing to pay that just to see them, but I've got CE to save up for. Always next year I guess [face_praying]

    They could always be playing locally sometime before.

    Oh just had an idea for a future meet, I know that the NW will probably have meetup for the Matthew Street Festival in Liverpool. And I thought it might be a good time to make it a joint meet, the only problem I can think of is that it's a month after CE.
    It is a really cool event, with loads of free gigs over the Bank Holiday weekend plus those of a rock persuasion might want to check out The Krazy House later in the evening.

    As I've said being that it takes place after CE might make it hard for some of you coming all the way down to L'pool and staying over, so if people ain't up for it we still can just make it a NW meet. :)

    I could be persuaded ;)

    When would you want to do this?

    Well it should take place from the 25th-27th August, so if you guys want to make a weekend out of it that would be cool :)

    Sweet, I'll start a thread closer to the event if more people show interest. Not sure what bands will be on the bill this year but it should be good, but theres always loads of other things to do so it still all good :)
