The second installment of Hammerfest was so much better than the first - excellents bands on all three nights.

Thursday's highlight was a band called SSS who I had never heard before - brilliantly tight crossover thrash band. Especially impressed by the bass player. Since downloaded everything they have done and looking forward to seeing them again.

Friday - Devildriver and Five Finger Death Punch were both extremely impressive but completely blown off the stage by Napalm Death who were just magnificent. Not seen them for years and completely forgot how good they were.

Saturday - Attica Rage put in an excellent performance on the main stage for the first time - great version of Safe Inside and a very brave cover - Fear of the Dark - which they performed superbly. Skindred were magnificent as always and Iced Earth as dull as ever (don't understand why I don't get this lot - I should like them) but the highlight of the entire weekend were Suicidal Tendencies who just owned the stage. Got on it myself for Pledge Your Allegiance which was great fun for an old geezer like me. Sabaton finished the weekend - not particularly familiar with the but very impressed.

Already booked for next year. Now if they can just get Slayer or Megadeth to headline that would do me just fine.
