Hell aren't anywhere close to being classed as prog. They are a heavy metal band, simple as that. If anything they have a lot of similarities to NWOBHM.

Re: Next Announcement

Got a feeling the last headliner will be Bullet For My Valentine.

As for the Thursday night headliner, something like Blaze Bayley would be good.

Re: Next Announcement

Surely Metal Church, Alestorm, Candlemass, Sonata Arctica etc who are all around in europe at the time would be better fits than King 810

Re: Next Announcement

How did the organisers get this years lineup so wrong. It's one of the worst BOA lineups I've ever seen.

Who in their right frame of mind would book King 810 on an exclusive. :?

Re: Next Announcement

I'm not sure why, when you look at some of the bands that have headlined recently, people seem to think Kreator are too small. Using Manchester venues as a gauge, some of the recent headliners Bloodstock have had (e.g. 2011 onward) play venues the same size on their own headlining tours as Kreator ...

Re: Next Announcement

Alice in Chains and Deftones on that list are likely in the future, unless BOA expands.

I just think there's a lot of bands touring in the next two months that are likely to be on on the bill so can't be announced yet. As for over-spending last year, on what? The Kraken ice-cream?


The overall quality of the lineup. The majority of last years bands are bigger than this years.

Re: Next Announcement

Does anyone think they might have overspent last year, which is having an affect this year.

Either that or they're struggling.

Re: Next Announcement

Have seen The Wildhearts a few times now. Great live band, but inno way are they headlining size.

3rd from top or maybe a headlining set on the SL stage.

Re: Next Announcement

What does that have to do with what he said? Was he saying the band were gay meaning happy? No. He didn't say the band were gay, he said their name is gay. Gay is slang for lame and has been for a very long time. Many words have different meanings depending on the context. In this case he hasn't sa...

At this moment, the lineup is looking like one of the worst for a long time.

Re: Next Announcement

I didn't think Anthrax were that great last year. Probably the worst out of the 5 times I've seen them. I thought Slayer's set and stage show was brilliant, but they seemed like they were going through the motions. Probably the worst out of the 4 times I've seen them, but stage show was the best if ...

Re: Next Announcement

Why do people keep mentioning Kreator, they're nowhere near big enough to headline, never have been even when the featival was smaller. If much bigger bands in Anthrax and Testament can't headline, Kreator definitely can't.

Re: Next Announcement

ToPT could probably fill the same role as Diamond Head last year.

Announcement soon, Triviums tour ends in 10 days.

Re: Next Announcement

Is this actually a rumour or are people just assuming it must be someone from Download to try and explain the delay in the announcement. FFDP being the band they chose. You would assume the most obvious choices from Download would be Suicidal Tendencies whi Vicky has been tweeting and Opeth who were...
