Re: Next Announcement

Im worried by the amount of people I'm seeing responding to the announcement saying '*Tags mates* King 810 and Hatebreed! Literally wanna go for these bands only'. Saturday isn't going to have a very nice atmosphere at all... People said that about the Machine Head and Lamb of God years and, tbh, t...

Re: Next Announcement

King 810? Aren't they the gobshites who think they're dead hard? I would like to see how long they last in Kirkby or (insert your local rough estate here). :lol: Well they are from Flint Michigan, I suspect they are more than familiar with the sort of estates you see in Kenny, Croxteth or the Dingl...

Re: Next Announcement

Whoop! Well that's an amazing announcement for me! Kreator are a great live band - should have had a headlining slot though. King 810 are a band that I was originally sceptical about but I've seen them live twice and gave their albums a chance and I'm now a convert. Inquisition are probably the best...

Re: Next Announcement

Happy with Macabre, I'll have to dig out my old Grim reality EP and give Mr Albert fish a spin. Not so bothered about the other bands, when are we getting the final headliner??? That's their best song. Shame they haven't played it whenever I've seen them. That will have to be rectified, if any memb...

Re: Next Announcement

I would say that Macabre are probably equal to most previous Sophie Stage headliners. They have a very big cult following. Virtually every Extreme Metal band going have been influenced by them. Even if they don't realise it. Spot on Gandalf, I'm surprised how many people on here haven't heard of Ma...

Re: Next Announcement

Excellent announcement, I've seen Decapitated and Obituary a few times over the past couple of years, but always happy to watch them again. I've never seen Brujeria, so I'm
excited about this, but it would be good to have some more grind on the smaller stages eg afternoon gentlemen

Re: Next Announcement

You mention Obscene Extreme - I'm sure that if that festival starting booking power metal bands at the expense of extreme metal and you were a fan of that genre who had been going to that festival for many years, then you'd be pretty pissed off. I can understand why you're upset, but I just don't t...

Re: Next Announcement

But Hatebreed and Whitechapel aren't Heavy Metal. They are Hardcore. They only get booked because they are mates with one of the bookers. If not then why haven't they booked any other similar bands in the last few years? There are far better bands that fit in much more, D.R.I., Gang Green, S.O.D., ...

Re: Next Announcement

Blind Guardian are not my bag at all, but they should keep the Power Metal whiners happy. I think the point you're missing here about "power-metal whiners" is that a lot of those people are loyal attendees of Bloodstock who have been going since the days of the indoor (or maybe first 2 or...

Re: Next Announcement

Really excited about Possessed!! - in a weird episode of synchronicity I was listening to seven churches on Saturday morning and reading about them in Albert Mudrian's fantastic 'Choosing death', and the thought occurred to me that I would probably never get to see them - and then Bloodstock drop th...

Re: Next Announcement Thread

How about Anacrusis? (or more specifically Kenn Nardi of Anacrusis), never seen
this band play live and they would be a first for Bloodstock.

Re: Next Announcement Thread

I'm really hoping for Priest, but would be happy with Slayer - who incidentally were on top form in Newport on Saturday. It can't be long before Priest finally decide to hang up their leathers, so time is ticking on this one, and it would be a massive injustice if we never got to see them headline B...
