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!

Re: Next Announcement

Blind Guardian did get special guests. Only 2 years ago. And Demons and Wizards, being a rarity, would probably at least get an hour. That said, I think if they were going to be booked they would have been announced by now, and I think the token power metal slots are all full. I thought they'd play...

Re: ANTHRAX - DIMMU BORGIR - THY ART IS MURDER & TESSERACT - CONFIRMED FOR BLOODSTOCK 2019

anyone who likes Anthrax would've seen them THIS year anyway on the Slayer tour)- and they were as boring as always- I always think they MUST have something as they are one of the 'Big 4' so I approach their set and think 'Right I'm gonna give them another chance- but I've given up now....they have...

Re: Next Announcement

I won't miss Skeletonwitch, always found them fairly average. Perhaps they'll contact Gama Bomb instead now :D I gave Tesseract and Thy Art is Murder a listen last night, both pretty awful although I can imagine TAiM being popular. Tesseract didn't sound anything like I thought they would...very bor...

Demons & Wizards are nothing in the UK, I doubt your average Bloodstocker has even heard of them. If neither Blind Guardian nor Iced Earth themselves can get a special guest slot there's no way their spin off band will.

Re: Next Announcement

I think 3rd down greatly flatters Cradle of Filth. They aren't even the best black metal band in Suffolk. It doesn't flatter them, no matter your personal opinion on their music. They're probably one of Britain's biggest metal exports of the last 20 years and have worked their asses off to get ther...

Re: Next Announcement

I know very little about Tesseract bar the name so count me as another surprised to see them so far up the bill. The only band I'm pleased about here is Anthrax, who give me something other than Cradle to watch on the Saturday. Dimmu are ok but pretty hit and miss live and they haven't made an inter...
