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

If what folk are saying about their newer stuff being a departure from their earlier metalcore sound is true then I may give them a go. I'm not familiar with their early stuff but did check out their new album. It's not the worst thing I've ever heard but still not at all to my tastes. Sounds a bit...

Re: Next Announcement

Parkway Drive are the sort of band I started going to Bloodstock to get away from. I hope the festival doesn't start to lose its identity, I'd rather it remained at 10-12,000 and attracted lesser known metal acts as headliners than 18,000 and shit like this. But I don't know the realities of the fin...

Re: Next Announcement

Am I right in thinking that the Saturday night headliner is yet to be announced? I can only find mention of Friday and Sunday being headliners in comms. to date. Line up pretty lacklustre so hoping for a strong Saturday night. Yes, we're still awaiting the Saturday headliner. All we know is it's a ...

Re: Next Announcement

I've never considered Powerwolf a joke or novelty band, they write good songs. I don't even know what their live show is like, have never seen them.

Are you saying you like Powerwolf but not Sabaton? Each to their own of course but I find that quite odd, the two bands are very much treading the same boards.

It baffles me that people like Powerwolf that much. Boring music.


I'd say exactly the same about Swallow the Sun - each to their own!!

Re: Next Announcement

Initially surprised that Powerwolf are special guests, they've never hit the top 100 in the UK...but their star is growing and they're bound to appeal to Sabaton fans so it makes sense in retrospect. Good band who I probably won't be able to catch on their current tour so happy with that. The other ...

Re: Next Announcement

It's not Megadeth, they've played before. It's definitely not Powerwolf, they're not even remotely big enough to headline Bloodstock.

I think Vicki said she tried for Zeal & Ardor but they weren't available.

As this is probably the most active thread in the forum, just a shout out that the annual album of the year thing is running again in the metal section. Vote for your favourite 10 albums of 2018, in no particular order and those with the most votes will go to a second round in the new year to decide...

Nah, they're huge, debut album went top ten in the UK. If anything they're probably too big for BOA.

Re: Next Announcement

For anyone faintly clinging to the hope of Helloween - she categorically ruled them out for next year. Lots of depressing bands she said she'd love to book and confirmed that Bodycount have been in her sights for some time.

Re: Next Announcement

Not gonna lie, I love power metal but that Blind Guardian performance was the biggest yawnfest I've seen from a special guest since I started attending in 2011. I genuinely almost fell asleep standing up! Testament and Blind Guardian should have been swapped without a doubt imo. Woah. I thought Bli...

Slayer are fantastic - don't listen to Tet, being wrong is one of his hobbies!
