Re: Next Announcement

I'm pretty sure the go-to headliner in case of a cancellation will be Bullet. Vicky said on one of the podcasts that she was going to book them instead of Mercyful Fate, then realised that there would be riots. I imagine if anyone else cancelled they'll have no choice. Primitai and Napalm Death are ...

Re: Metal 2 the Masses 2021

I believe it's the usual amount, so a minimum of 1 per region but some regions might have a 2nd taken for the Jager stage etc. Weird, considering there's a whole other day to fill and little chance of any Europeans getting a slot. The only Euro M2TMs are Ireland, Poland and Norway though I think? T...

Re: So much for Iced Earth...

I read somewhere that its 3 - 4 years in jail as part of his plea bargain, based on cooperation in other cases.

Although seeing as he's allegedly a founding member of a far right terrorist group that seems a bit lenient.

Re: Next Announcement

Another pretty boring announcement. Its a bit worrying, Vicky doesn't seem to have much knowledge of mainstage-sized UK metal bands beyond crap metalcore and retro-throwbacks. Its a bit worrying if all the announcements are just going to feature the same kind of thing.

Re: Next Announcement

Possibly, Toxic Holocaust and Black Dahlia Murder are both gone now and don't think they were mentioned in the last news. They were on Facebook, along with Nekrogoblikon and Cattle Decapitation (I may be missing some). I believe Vio-lence is the only US band still on the bill, so I'm expecting them...

Re: Next Announcement

I'm pretty sure she's said Hobgoblin is open Thursday, whether those plans have changed with the lack of M2tM though, who can say? Expecting Terra IV in the announcement considering Vicky said they are playing on the Damnation podcast. Too similar to Hacktivist for me, although they are better. I su...

Re: Next Announcement

Phil Campbell and The Wildhearts are two of the most boring, predictable hard rock bands, and they seem to play everywhere constantly. Nothing special there. Or maybe I'm just sad because I saw the picture first, and thought it was Haken being announced. Raging Speedhorn are one of the worst bands i...

Re: Corey Taylor Speaks

I usually think so called "cancel culture" is just businesses trying to boost their bottom line - in the same week Dr Suess' books were taken out of print, the company that "cancelled" them posted record profits as people brought his books in protest. Piers Morgan walks off GMB b...

Re: Corey Taylor Speaks

Corey thinks people not liking an Eminem lyric is the same as the KKK...what a fuckwit. That's not what he's saying. He mentioned context, that is important. No, that's pretty much what he says. I mean, the way he says it is casual, perhaps he means something deeper than it, but it really doesn't c...

Re: Next Announcement

I didn't intend to ruffle feathers with the miracles comment. I doubt there is much bloodstock can do if there are problems. Right now the team are balancing: - Bands (and staff possibly?) physically able to get here with the travel restrictions in place - The entire audience having received vaccin...

Life of Agony are back as well - I guess they just haven't sorted the website yet.

Re: Next Announcement

Anyone else noticed Necrogoblikon have dropped off the lineup as well? Nothing's been said about them, I hope they haven't dropped out.
