Practically any band on the brutal assault lineup the same weekend would be a decent replacement (especially Pestilence, Whoredom Rife, Blood Incantation and Dying Fetus)

I quite agree.
I love Dying Fetus's cover of Pestilence's Twisted Truth....that would make my weekend

I'd have watched the first Nails song but all the rest sound the same so not too bothered (yes, I'm at that age where I've started to sound like my Dad!).

Lots of bands turning up on the festival circuit I'd welcome...Enslaved, Solstafir, Korpiklaani, Tankard...

I'd be happy with any of those, but Tankard would be amazing as I've never seen them yet. Sacred Reich would be fantastic, as would Electric Wizard, Blood Ceremony, Lawnmower Deth, and some decent sized power metal bands, possibly Rhapsody (doing their farewell tour) or Hammerfall, as they are both due a return in my eyes.

With Electric Wizard releasing a new album, methinks they would make a good second stage headliner.

Can someone please post a screenshot of the tweet here? Her Twitter page is private and I don't have an account.

They've put an announcement up on their Facebook page. Nothing on the web site yet, as far as I can see.

I'm praying this happens! Can't believe they haven't been booked before.

If they can play venues like the Roundhouse then they're waaay to big for the Sophie stage, hell Delain have only done KOKO and the place was crammed for them.

Just realized they've changed their announcement style this year, normally by now we'd have most of the upper card announced with the odd middling and smaller band thrown in as well. So far Friday's main stage is nearly done and the rest of the weekend it's middling bands and 2 sophie headliners. Can't say if I prefer it this way or not :?

During the last FB live thing they said next announcement in January so I'd be very surprised if they did one today.

Delain were originally booked for the main stage, but asked to play on the Sophie stage because of their association with Sophie Lancaster.
