Re: Next Announcement

I am personally flabbergasted that anyone would complain about Priest even with a 2 year gap. They were great in 2018 and are arguably one of if not THE most important band in the whole genre. Better get them again before they bow out for good (been fooled by that one before) or let's face it, befor...

LIST TIME! Definitely / Likely / Maybe / Avoid.

As we have done in the past, I feel like making a note of what will likely be the list of bands I will and will not be watching. Definitely watching: ROTTING CHRIST SABATON GRAND MAGUS ZEALOT CULT SWALLOW THE SUN TAAKE SCORPIONS HYPOCRISY ABORTED Likely Watching: POWERWOLF METAL CHURCH DEATH ANGEL C...

Re: Next Announcement

Having seen Behemoth on their most recent run I can say that the stage show they managed to cram into the Forum was fantastic. They would be my choice personally.

Re: Next Announcement

Saw this posted on the official Bloodstock FB group: "You're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't." I've been on the Bloodstock forums and on here for about 6 years now and the most common complaints/criticisms etc of the line ups have been similar most years. "Bloodstock ...

Re: Next Announcement

I need some Sophie announcements to really solidify my attendance. I am almost certainly attending but If there is a good enough slew of bands I will do it now.

Re: Next Announcement

Surely Parkway Drive are nowhere near big enough to headline? Hasn't Vicky said on numerous occasions she would love Korn to play?

Re: Next Announcement

God I really hope the only comedy metal band we get is Scarecrow, they haven't played for two years so by BOA's logic they are waaaaay overdue a return slot. For me, comedy and Metal is about as compatible as Decapitated and groupies.

Re: BOA 2018 - Rate the Bands You Saw

I'm sorry but sub genre preferences aside, there should be no world where Fozzy have a higher rating than Emperor. I watched Fozzy in 2013 and they were shit so unless they have improved dramatically I refuse to believe they played a better set. And FYI I am a massive Chris Jericho fan so I don't ha...

Re: BOA 2018: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly.

Were you the guy that shouted (Saturday I think ?) "get a proper laugh for fuck's sake", at about 7AM ? Made me smile over my first beer of the day. The boys with the speaker were playing Tyketto, Journey, Dio-era Sabbath, Manowar, and actual Dio, you heathen - had a great time with them ...

- Poor sound at the main stage. I could barely hear the vocals for Devildrier


Glad the sound guys got something right on the mainstage.

Re: BOA 2018 - Rate the Bands You Saw

Thursday Skiltron - 5/10 - Enjoyable enough. Not my bag(pipe) to be honest but it was your typical fun Thursday night band. Bloodshot Dawn - 4/10 - Was nearer the front for them. Sound was absolute dogshit so I did not enjoy this performance at all. It takes a lot for a Technical/Melodic Death Meta...

Yeah i really don't get the superficial token "ugh fat people" remarks. Don't get me wrong, A large man in a mankini does nothing for me sexually but as long as he isn't gyrating/crowdsurfing on or near me IDGAF. Saying that I did see a group of girls during Alestorm running around jigglin...

Re: Next announcement

Aye I do like Howard Jones' voice. I'm a fan of his clean and harsh vocals but his cleans are very distinctive.

Upgraded to a two man version this time, feels like a mansion compared to my one man :lol: Anything smaller than a two man is self-abuse. Do you need to talk? My own list goes something like this, no idea about clashes: Thursday ⋅ Arkona ⋅ Fire Red Empress ⋅ Skiltron F...
