Happy New Metal Year to one and all

Well 2006 has dawned and a Happy New Metal Year to one and all. Good luck to M&S as they head down to the Lizzy vibe to start proceedings off!

Here's hoping 2006 turns into a fine example of moshing fun for all. Of course this is a time when predictions run rife for the next 'big' thing, so here are mine (of course plagiarised from the pages of Kerrang, Classic Rock and Metal Hammer):
  • Metallica will return with a storming new album including solos!;
  • Iron Maiden will be re-confirmed as the 'Daddy's' of metal with their new platter;
  • Power Metal will return in loin clothes and bad hair thanks to Dragonforce;
  • There'll be a resugence of interest in classics such as Lizzy, UFO amongst many others;
  • I'll finally finish off a novel and be offered exclusive columns in Kerrang, Classic Rock and Metal Hammer;
  • Beer will be drunk;
  • Trivium will get ever bigger;
  • Mastodon and Bullet for My Valentine will produce boy band style singles with multiple part harmonies....

Ok, that's enough - suffice to say, keep the metal flag flying, the mosh pit swirling and in the words of Lord Het - Bang that Head that Doesn't Bang!
