Re: Next Announcement

I used to know about 30-40 people who'd go to Bloodstock every year, perhaps more. it was like an annual away day for every metal fan I knew in Plymouth. This year I'm only aware of 3. Whether this is a general reflection or just anecdotal I couldn't say, for every old fan they've lost I'm sure they...

Re: Next Announcement

Political lyrics are ok if I agree with them :lol: I'm fairly left/central politically and to be honest, I can't think of many particularly right wing artists at all, let alone any I like. Kid Rock, Ted Nugent, Vikernes...I'd imagine Slayer, Manowar and Metallica lean to the right but none of them a...

Re: Next Announcement

Def Leppard are way too big for Bloodstock. Sadly Helloween aren't big enough in the UK for a headline slot. Megadeth, Ghost, Amon Amarth...great bands but they've all headlined recently. Shit like Architects is probably the most likely!

Re: Next Announcement

Well that pretty much puts paid to any lingering thoughts I had of going. After a promising initial couple of announcements this year's line up has again completely failed to inspire me. I don't know if I'm just old and out of touch with what people like in the metal scene nowadays but there are onl...

Re: Next Announcement

Yeah, Eternal Nightmare was a big thing when it came out, was hyped up to fuck. Granted it was the only really great album Vio-lence made but they certainly weren't unknown, they were easily on the same level of popularity as the likes of Sacred Reich and Death Angel when that debut came out.

Re: Next Announcement

Hoping for Vio-Lence to make an appearance. It could be quite special considering they've never played in the UK before. I genuinely can't tell if your joking or not. Thankfully they've been confirmed as only playing one European date. I've become confused here...are you suggesting he's joking abou...

Re: Next Announcement

I've only heard of Aborted out of those and they're very mediocre. Will check out the others tonight.

Re: Next Announcement

I believe that post was made by Simon Hall himself, in direct response to complaints on the forum. There's a lot of fluidity in metal genres but Gandalf is right, Dimmu, RC and Cradle aren't going to placate black metal fans and neither are Metal Church thrash. Grand Magus certainly aren't folk. But...

Re: Next Announcement

It's amazing how they've managed to turn what many were saying was shaping to be a the best lineup in years into one that no one cares about :lol: Hardly any of the regulars I've been going with over the years are bothering this whereas the one person I know who thinks it looks good is the one who ...

Re: Next Announcement

Hmmm, I like Taake but by the time they come on the rest of Saturday will have probably eroded my enthusiasm. I like Anthrax and Cradle but other than that the Saturday is one of the worst Bloodstock days ever...it genuinely looks like the sort of festival day I started going to Bloodstock to get aw...

Re: Next Announcement

Sacred Reich announced a UK tour in November today, be cool if they add Bloodstock as a date tomorrow!

Re: Next Announcement

Hopefully they've saved something for this announcement to try and placate those who hated the Parkway Drive one! A bit of death or folk metal would probably go down well.

Re: PARKWAY DRIVE - CONFIRMED AS BLOODSTOCK 2019 SATURDAY NIGHT HEADLINER

I gotta laugh when I see a band like this headline bloodstock and one of the pioneers of death metal MASTER get overlooked by the organisers year in year out. Pretty damn lame. If you ask me. As much as I'd prefer to watch Master over Parkway Drive, the organizers are in the business of putting on ...

Re: Next Announcement

I thought Ghost were superb at Bloodstock, as did the majority of people I was with. One of my favourite headline performances tbh. Parkway Drive are metal. They're a type of metal I can't abide but there's no doubt about what they are. It's also the sort of metal which is extremely popular with the...
