Xandria

Postby jwh20 » Thu Sep 08, 2016 9:32 am

Would love to see these guys again, they put on a great show in London in February. They're playing metaldays so I assume there are more shows to come. I didn't much like their early stuff but in Dianne they have one of the best singers and performers in the scene, and Sacrificium I think is arguably the best symphonic metal album ever released. Well written, varied, epic, memorable and catchy. Would love for them to be on early in the day on the main stage or late in the tent. Would certainly prefer the to bands like Epica, Amaranthe or Delain again, and as we can't have Nightwish it would be a good call!

I think that's overstating things somewhat, but it's a good album and they're a good band that are long overdue a Bloodstock appearance.

They would be a good addition, be quite pleased if they were booked.

I'd disagree massively - in fact I'd say it's the worst album Xandria have done, the new one is pretty rubbish too.

India, Salome and Nevermore's End were all startlingly good album, but they've lost it recently, and I'm not so bothered about seeing them these days.
