Billy Talent

Billy Talent
Played at Graspop Metal Meeting
2010 / 2018






Although the band name may sound a bit ambitious, it is nonetheless an accurate description of the band members’ skills. Billy Talent wowed the GMM crowd eight years ago and in the intervening years they have only grown in stature. The unadulaterated punk anger of their early years has gradually made way for more conventional, accessible rock tracks although the band’s core punk traits are never far away. Benjamin Kowalewicz’ signature vocals and the metal-fuelled guitar riffs are still the driving forces behind a band that have won every conceivable award in their home country of Canada. Last year they were one of the standout bands at Pukkelpop and the GMM hordes will settle for nothing less. (#GMM18)
