Re: Next Announcement

Never heard of any of them ! I do have a massive blind spot regarding death metal though. Quick googling suggests I'll check out The Lazys, 2 Headed Snake, Boss Keloid Skeletal Remains (death metal) The Lazys (some kind of hard rock band ?) 3 Headed Snake (I have no idea ? (MA thinks power metal) B...

Re: Next Announcement

Slayer were brilliant in Newcastle last night. I really don't understand why so many people are against them playing BOA. Saying that they've played twice in the last 5 years so I would perhaps rather have someone else this year. I can see it being Lamb of God, a band I don't personally like but who...

Re: Next Announcement

Although I'm only familiar with a couple of Scorpions songs (recommendations for their best albums to start with would be appreciated!) this is a great booking for the festival and they've been requested a lot. Cool to see that Mikkey Dee is drumming for them now too! Hopefully we'll get a heavier ...

Re: BLOODSTOCK 2019 SUNDAY HEADLINER

Any from Manowar, Slayer, Rainbow, Scorpions or Helloween Pumpkins Unite would do just fine for me. Megadeth only headlined in 2017 so I'd rather wait another couple of years before bringing them back. What about the return of Alice Cooper? It's been a few years since he last played and he's still o...

Re: Next Announcement

Sabaton are one of those bands who have been fantastic every time I've seen them. I for one will be most pleased to see them back at Bloodstock in a richly deserved headline role.

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

Oh and I almost forgot. What the hell was that The Lost band playing in VIP on Saturday? What a load of old shit. Have they ever actually heard the songs they were trying to play? They were called The Lost Boys. Brule were originally meant to be playing in that slot, but one of the members ended up...

Re: Types of Bands like Mr. Big

Yeah - every few years there's a band that seems to play all the metal festivals - Europe, Quo, Journey, Thunder, Quireboys have all done the rounds. We've had bands like them before and Eric Martin performed here with Avantasia. I don't think there's a massive difference between Mr Big and say UFO...

Re: Types of Bands like Mr. Big

Would never have considered Mr Big glam, but sure. I think there's a market for having more rock-sounding acts at the festival, but preferably ones that do cross into almost metal territory: Accept, Rose Tattoo and the likes. Accept are definitely metal for me. I agree though, it would be nice to h...

Re: DRI not playing but wanting to

So guess what, instead of one of the first crossover thrash bands formed in '82 playing 'the home of metal' in the UK, they're playing a pub in Bolton Why would a band that aren't metal be a good fit for "the home of metal"? No less metal than several other bands who have played over the ...

Re: Next announcement

I got a bit bored looking through as all but a couple had very generic grunty vocals. A bit more diversity would be nice.

Re: Next announcement

Simon Hall has just posted on Facebook that there will be an announcement today at 11. He says if you've been keeping an eye on things you should know 50% of them (M2TM winners I assume). The other 50% could be interesting.

Re: Sophie stage post-band entertainment feedback

Over the last couple of years I've done some DJing in the Serpent's Lair and between us we have a wide selection of DJs who all do different things,and it works really well. I tend to play a lot of 70s proto metal bands, prog rock, doom and horror soundtracks which seems to go down pretty well, wher...

Re: Next announcement

Just heard that Mantas has had a double heart bypass. He is at home resting now, but I guess that throws Venom Inc's appearance into some doubt. Obviously a speedy recovery is what I am hoping for, but it's very sad to hear he's been through this.
