And it’s over again! From thursday the 18th till monday the 22nd of june we had the fantastic Graspop Metal Meeting in Dessel, Belgium. It was one hell of a festival, with multiple highlights and, of course, some disappointments as well. We haven’t seen every single show, but here’s a short summary of what we did see.
This is a band that was present in my top 10 of last year. Blues Pills are an amazing rock-band that cannot stop to amaze you with their amazing sound! They grace the Metal Dome on Graspop in 2015. It could just be the resort for people who want to get away from the heavy stuff for half an hour.
It’s amazing how easy it sometimes seems to be. A woman decides to form a new band, with a bit of a hippy, retro sound. Then she recruits a couple of metal musicians that agree to give in to the sound, to make a lovely prog-rock album, with it’s roots deep into the psychedelic. And that’s exactly Blues Pills.
