Re: BLOODSTOCK REVEAL TEN MORE BANDS PLUS MORE CLUB NIGHTS

Ageless Oblivion are god-awful, and Alunah bore the hell out of me. Need to check out the Sunday bands, hoping there'll be something other than Corpse and Godflesh to keep me there for the last day.

Re: Overall, Do You Like This Years Lineup?

Six UK shows a year is hardly a lot. I remember when bands used to do 20 or 30 date UK tours. Often with a festival or two as well. More it's the frequency with which they're here - Supporting WT in April 2014, then a headline tour October 2014, a show with Sabaton this January gone, a bloodstock a...

Re: What pissed you off today

Lost my micro SD card with all the pictures I took on holiday in France before getting a chance to put them on my PC/back them up anywhere. Pretty pissed off, definitely hope it turns up.

Re: Metal magazines - PLEASE ANSWER!!!!

Metal Hammer is total garbage, you can tell just how much they're paid to promote/write about certain artists all the time. Terrorizer is kinda flawed, but it's a good read. Zero tolerance is probably the best. Thing with magazines though is, I went to have a look at terrorizer yesterday. They still...

Re: Trivial Grumblings

Yeah, can't say I'm at all happy with that. A call centre, is there much to be happy about? the money is good, and so was the location. I'm not a cold calling scumbag, I generally help people who call up with problems, working for the local council can be okay. But then a lot of the people who call...

Re: Trivial Grumblings

So the call centre I work in for the local council is moving. To a place in the middle of nowhere with no public transport routes, in winter. And our phone system is being replaced by one that's far too complicated compared to the current one, and from now on all calls are recorded, and so are all y...

Re: "Non-Bloodstock" bands you would accept

Blues Pills are one of my current favourites. Would be brilliant if they got booked.

Re: What does Bloodstock need?

^would be absolutely brilliant. Electric Wizard, Draconian or Sleep would be another option, but with the former doing a couple of shows this year, draconian doing doom over london, and the latter playing desertfest I don't see it. Conan would demolish as well if they could be booked. They're so goo...

Re: What does Bloodstock need?

At the moment we've got death, prog, thrash, power, female fronted, commercial stuff, and black metal. So to cover all bases we need a solid doom act, (subrosa for the tent!), some trad metal and some grindcore. Don't like power metal, but it does need another band to be balanced, and another female...

Re: Sunday Special Guest

It won't be Devin alas, he's said he's taking a year off after the royal albert hall show :( Plus I'd hope he'd been seen as a headliner by now :yes: If there's anyone who deserves to take a break it's definitely Devin Townsend. I'm so glad I managed to sort a ticket to the albert hall show. If he ...
