My Top 10 Albums of 2012
1. Enter Shikari - A Flash Flood of Colour
I only discovered Enter Shikari last year and I was totally blown away. Their music is very innovative, genre-breaking and energetic with extremely social critical lyrics. In January they released their latest album "A Flash Flood of Color" and it's just sooo good. I love every single song and I've been listening to this album for 11 months now without getting tired of it. There are tons of different styles in their songs - hell, even in one song they manage to mix different tempos and styles! Enter Shikari just sounds so fresh and exciting. If you like noisy rock music + electro/dubstep + badass lyrics, check them out!

Rock im Park
– about little heart attacks and almost dying from too much awesomeness
Hey lovely readers, I’m going to tell you about my super awesome experience at the Rock im Park Festival, Nuremberg – Germany.
How it began/Thursday, 31st June:
Everything began as the bands for Rock im Park were announced. Linkin Park was one band of many. And I just had to go, because hey Linkin Park! I just HAD TO GO! So I thought: ‘Okay, when I’m going then for real’, so I bought myself a 3-days-ticket.
A good friend of mine was with me and we arrived on Thursday evening in about half an hour. (Yep, very cool to live just 20 kilometers away from Nuremberg another reason why I had to go.^^ )
Fan Review: Pinkpop Festival (Landgraaf, NL) By An Van Oppens
My day at Pinkpop
Event: Pinkpop festival
Date + location: May 27th 2012 – Landgraaf, NL
Highlight of the day: Meet & Greet!
For me, other than their amazing set and meeting some awesome people, the Meet & Greet with the band was part of the incredible experience. It wasn't my first M&G though, but it was still very exciting to me!
Our Pinkpop day started with us (Gregory, Yves, his girlfriend Veerle, and me) driving to the festival from Belgium in Gregory’s very cool Linkin Parkified car (a white car with the LPUX logo on each side), while playing LP music the entire drive. We arrived in Landgraaf around 11 AM.
Throughout the day I really met some awesome LPU members. Meeting some of them for the first time after chatting a lot on the community. Besides them, there were also some great Belgian LPUers I already met at Werchter (Belgium) last year. I’ve also met Adam (LPUHQ) for the first time (at 3 PM), we were supposed to be working as “roadies (together with Pascal and Lode) for the day” but we ended up being “roadies for the hour”, haha! Even though it was pretty much impossible to recruit new members (unless you gave them an additional M&G pass for that day in return), Adam is really awesome, he took the time to chat and hang out with us for couple of hours, even during the show... ...
