We made sure we were a part of it, so we headed down to see if Sonisphere is truly back for good.

Plymouth appears to be the only place in the UK that isn’t snowed under, and that actually turns out to be lucky for the first date of Alestorm‘s “Useless Drunken Bastards” tour. Now on their third album of pirate themed folky power metal, they are renowned for their party atmosphere at gigs. As it is, everyone loves dressing up as a pirate for some reason, so they’ve managed to build on a niché that is always gonna be successful. Luckily, they can back it up with good song writing skills and catchy drinking anthems that are easy to sing along to. Even if every song pretty much sounds the same.

Note: As only three members of the site were able to attend the festival weekend, we were sadly unable to cover every band performing throughout the day.

The third and final day of the Sonisphere weekend brings to the table another day filled with brilliant acts sprawling across a range of different genres. With what might be Slipknot‘s final UK performance together (at least with the current line-up), it’s an emotional and iconic day for all maggots in attendance.

GALLERY: Sonisphere 2011 – Sunday (10/07/2011)

Hosted at the grounds of Knebworth, we got involved with the Sonisphere festivities now that the event has been extended to a three-day weekend with all of its stages. Finishing off the weekend with a bang, the festival managed to bag a slot from comedian Bill Bailey, and also what could potentially be Slipknot‘s final UK performance. Though we weren’t allowed photo access to the Apollo and Saturn stages to take shots of the big guns, our snappy photographer did manage to catch all the other great action across the arena.

Featuring: Cancer Bats, Alestorm, Floods, The Answer, Sonic Boom Six, Orange Goblin, Amplifier, Mad Dog, Kylesa, InMe, Arcane Roots, Turbowolf, Bat Sabbath, Title Fight, Bill Bailey,
