It’s comforting that every Sugar Horse track seems like it could soundtrack the end of the world. If that isn’t a statement to make you want to listen, I don’t know what is.
There are moments when music really does touch you. That burning, emotional rush that feels like it will engulf you in its flames. Lonely The Brave live these moments every time they pick up their collective instruments and no-one more so than vocalist David Jakes, a man, who is beginning to emerge from his chrysalis. Hell, he stood at the front – the FRONT of the stage last time I saw them.
We’re late leaving the campsite and only briefly get a glimpse of Alestorm bringing pirate metal kicking and screaming – some dude is playing the keytar and it doesn’t sound too horrible. We’re only up early though to see one band: Babymetal. Judging by the crowd of people swarming to the Apollo stage, we aren’t the only ones.
