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: 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 !

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...

You could work around that by stating that Manowar aren't power metal, they're metal ?

Is it safe to assume a Dimmu / Bodom kind of band for Saturday ?

Sonata Arctica

While the last couple of records might not have set the world on fire, they've got a brilliant 'greatest hits' set, & would fit in well on a sunny day / in the tent (and would fill the 'melodic Finnish band' quota for 2019)

Re: Hammerfall

Great suggestion - they've got a long catalogue of good sing-along songs. Beer and power metal is a good combination !

Re: Next Announcement

I'm also not interested in watching Sabaton, I would hope they would be on the Sunday night so I can go home early again. Despite my dislike of them I can, as with Nightwish, see how they would be a good and timely choice for Bloodstock for '19, just hope BS get them on the right day ;) If they put...

Re: Batushka

It'd be hard for someone like that, pretty much 70% gimmick, to follow Watain, I imagine ?

They're fun enough live, might be good for a shorter set earlier on ?

Re: Manowar !

Manowar headline Friday, and open Sunday.

Kings of Metal at 10AM would certainly liven the place up.

Re: Scorpions

Great suggestion - nothing beats a headliner that can command a stadium-sized crowd. That said headliner has songs that can be sung / wailed / drunkenly slurred along to easily enough is always a bonus.

Re: 2019 Bands

Slayer are likely to play either Bloodstock or Download next year. Download may well offer them more money but if it's their last ever UK gig they may prefer the opportunity to go out with a headline slot. Never seen Slayer - I get the impression from this board, and the Metal Archives, that they'r...

Re: BOA 2018 - Rate the Bands You Saw

Emperor-4/10 Black metal played by office staff What the fuck does that even mean??! Emperor were one of the forerunners of the 2nd wave of black metal, pretty much the first ever band to play that sort of atmospheric black metal. Not a bad desciption of how they played - irrespective of their hist...

Trad heavy metal - great guitars, melodies, vocal harmonies, ballad-y numbers, proper heavy rock numbers. They'd be great on a sunny day.
