Gold are really good. You should listen to them. I classified them in our power metal category only because if Gold played power metal that would actually maybe be the weirdest experimental music ever and very rad. They DO play their own awesome kind of music, which is different than what many bands are doing. Optimist has some sweet jams. "White Noise" has a great intro. Prepare to be melted in a metallic wash of BM, post-rock and plaintive melodic musings.

Very stoked for the bulk of performers announced so far. Been jamming Zola Jesus’ old album The Spoils a lot of late and serpentwithfeet is one of the most next level performers – with a scary potent voice – I have heard in years.
Every day for the past five days I have sat down to tell you all about my weekend spent experiencing 15 hours of live, genuine metal from the hearts and souls of 19 bands. But how do you put into words one of the most unbelievable musical experiences of your life? I don’t think the mere words that I am about to put down will ever truly do it justice, but I will try my best.
The last weekend of April, 2012 had been a day I had been anxiously awaiting for months. Day 2 of the Gilead Media Music Festival had arrived and I was about to re-immerse myself into the 2 days, 19 bands, 15 hours of live metal in its many varied forms. Adam Bartlett, the mastermind behind Gilead Media, has been busting his ass off for countless months to bring this unbelievable event to a small, relatively conservative community nestled in the bosom of the Midwest. This weekend was all and more than I ever expected.
And in case you missed, the Day 1 overview is here.Add to My Radar
