Celebrating 40 years together and 30 years of their beards :)
It will be a great pleasure to see Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard together.
Jon Mikl Thor is Unchained and back to Keep the Dogs Away. Only the Strong can survive his Thunder On the Tundra. He is one true Rock Warrior.
Mr Thor is a metal legend and it will be most entertaining to see if he can still perform feats of strength like breaking bricks over his head and bursting hot-water bottles by blowing them up.
Slightly symphonic metal. Saves me having to see them in the UK.
Chris Impellitteri is officially the 2nd fastest guitarist in the world by (according to Guitar One). Back with Bob Rock on vocals. Should be entertaining.
JON OLIVA'S PAIN (US)
Ex-Savatage vocalist/keyboardist. Saw them 2 years ago at a UK indoors festival.
80s New Wave of British Heavy Metal band who I thought had split after I last saw them 2 years back. Maybe not. They were the first headlining band at my first SRF (on the half day half the stages first day).
FLOGGING MOLLY (US)
Celtic folk punk (a bit like The Pogues)
GRAND MAGUS (S)
Rootsy, grooving and doom-laden heavy metal.
Metal influenced by the likes of Metallica, Disturbed.
Their first visit to SRF and Sweden will also be their last as this long running thrash band call it a day.
