Re: What should happen with Brexit?

It was right to have a referendum given how much the EEC/EC/EU has changed since the last vote This is fine. I agree that the country's relationship should be open to periodic reassessment, particularly as most of the electorate didn't get to decide the first time around. However, it would have bee...

Re: What should happen with Brexit?

Leave in some way - Not May's deal, which is an horrific fudge by a professional politician so far out of her depth it's kind of funny. Get in some private sector lawyers, advisors, & merger men to sort it out. The EU sent professionals on their side - the UK sent the kind of people that take Tw...

Re: Last gig ticket you bought?

Sellsword in Manchester :D I wish they would up date their website. Just had a look to see when they are playing and saw they were playing Manc on the 10th of November. i.e. tonight. Then I realised that I was there last year. :lol: I had the same moment on the Zero Tolerance gig listing page - I w...

Re: Next Announcement

Think I`d rather a KK Downing spoken word as the last headliner than Within Temptation or what is passing as Slayer nowadays (Dare I say the KK Book is a fine read) Just get Judas Priest back for the Saturday, I certainly didn't hear "Electric Eye" "The Sentinel" "A Touch o...

Re: The food thread

Since we got back from BOA this year, the mrs & myself have been making that "half a loaf of bread full of chilli / garlic bread / cheese" thing. Certainly saves on the washing up, and the amount of flavour is perfect cat repellent ! Can't make it in a slow cooker, but it is a one-pot ...

Re: Next Announcement

I think the organisers are starting to put their interests first before the festival to be honest, the fact that they're more concerned with selling their own brand of gym gear than BOA merch, the fact that the strongman comp is getting bigger every year despite pulling in weak crowds and getting l...

Re: Next Announcement

Just had a listen to code orange....... Oh dear no. Rest of the announcements are awesome Showing how much I happily manage to avoid their kind of rubbish, I didn't even know that Roadrunner Records were still in business ! Very much surprised that there's not a neck tattoo amongst them, too, they ...

Re: SCORPIONS CONFIRMED AS BLOODSTOCK 2019 SUNDAY HEADLINER

Great announcement - Scorpions will be a perfect Sunday night band - hope they go for a heavier set without too much of the ballading though ! I'd be disappointed if they didn't slip a couple of slower ones in; Always Somewhere, Still Loving You or When The Smoke is Going Down rather than Winds of ...

Re: Next Announcement

I don't think it's a case of being bigger than Priest here, more that Scorps are bigger elsewhere than here so offers wouldn't be as competitive as those from gigs in EU and US - plus they seem to have a grand view of themselves: they talked of being insulted by an offer to headline second stage at...

Re: Next Announcement

I guess there's no accounting for taste. Not only were Twisted Sister the best headliner Bloodstock have ever had, it wasn't even close. It was by a very large margin. I couldn't be happier to see Dee back at Bloodstock. I've been to a lot of shows, not many festivals save BOA this time around, and...

Re: Next Announcement

Got a feeling Slayer might end up at Download. Parkway Drive Body Count Soulfly Yike! Hopefully not any of those. An evening of bro metal and kerrang rubbish (why would an emoscreamo band like PD get booked for bloodstock ?) does at least mean that they'll book something totally unrelated for the S...

Re: BLOODSTOCK announce SABATON as Friday night headliner for 2019!

Good news - fun band, good strong setlist live, crowd tend to get into it.

Tanks, who doesn't like tanks ? Marduk likes Tanks too...
