Yes and Yes. Truly incredible. Bolt Thrower did a chronological set so we got to hear stuff they haven't played in years, and in my case, never heard live before.

I went. It was a killer show, but unfortunately the sound was terrible where I was standing. I could barely make out the guitar. But other than that it was fucking mighty.
Great setlist from both Benediction, Autopsy and Bolt Thrower. I also managed to get two BT shirts after over an hour in line

After fighting with my housemates all month, doing 12 hours work a day on essays, and looking forward to this forever, it was finally the day. I was also going home from uni, so getting the train home, dumping my stuff off and going straight into London.

Or so I thought. Spent 2 hours looking for tickets I never found, then decided to leave, then missed an hourly train by 2 minutes, meaning I couldn't get there in time to try and buy tickets from someone. Could have been home 3 hours earlier and at the gig. :(

Well at the show it was billed as "Boltfest 2012" like it's some sort of recurring event

It was a 26th anniversary gig, though. I thought it was a special one-off... I was there and, yes, it was fantastic. Also, the longest merch queue ever!

I would have killed to have seen this. It seems like all the good festivals are always in Europe.

It probably did, but some guy kept on farting next to me.

hahahahahaha
I was in line for the bathroom at a Metallica show and someone vomited right near my feet. I couldn't make myself leave though because I had already been standing there for a good 15 minutes. Nasty shit goes down at metal gigs.

If Bolt Thrower would ACTUALLY GET AN ONLINE STORE OR A DEAL WITH A DISTRIBUTOR this crap wouldn't happen.

Three things Bolt Thrower needs to do: 1. Have and official merchandise store, 2. tour more, 3. work on a new album

After the merch queue there was the fun of a flooded gents as well. To be honest aside from the bands themselves it was a pretty poorly organised affair.

But I've been to far worse and paid far more so I ain't complaining. Cracking gig.

Oh yeah, I blame the crusties for that. Why? Because they're smelly. I guess the venue could've done with more toilets in general.
