Re: Bands you saw before they made it big

I guess Sabaton at The Purple Turtle (capacity 325) and Nightwish at LA2 (capacity 800 at the time) are the obvious ones. Both are now headlining Wembley Arena.

Re: Oh no!! its... HIM again!!

Welcome back, LUB. As others have mentioned, this place is now a poor imitation of the thriving community that it used to be. Almost entirely due to the owners pushing through a disastrous update. Malice or deliberate action? You decide.

Re: New Blood & Jager Stage Bands confirmed for Bloodstock 2021

I've heard of very few of those! I'll try and check out Battle Born, though.

Re: Next Announcement

Well, I imagine more richer bands like Devin Townsend would be able to afford the hotel stay. I think you're misrepresenting both how much money Devin has and how much he's being paid for this appearance. It's not even close to economically feasible for him and his band and crew to spend 10 days in...

Re: Next Announcement

I'm with King 810 being voted worst Bloodstock band ever; lyrics which included something about 'Popping a cap in yo ass' and sampled guitars at a metal festival? Really? Amazingly, I don't even think they were the worst band playing that year, let alone ever. I mean they were not very good, let's ...

Re: Next Announcement

Surprised there hasn't been much positivity towards Savage Master on here so far. They sound pretty suited to the majority's taste on this forum - melodic trad/power metal. Yep. They're absolutely the sort of band that should be being booked. It's just that they're not very good. Musically they're ...

That's pretty much the opposite of me. There are literally no main stage bands I want to see on Friday or Saturday. There are a few on Sunday though.

Re: Next Announcement

I know several people that will only be getting a Sunday day ticket. I'm just hoping that because they've put all of the good bands on one day they'll be able to avoid clashes. It's looking like Unleash The Archers will be clashing with someone. Probably Gloryhammer :-(

Re: worst band on the lineup ?

There are so many to choose from this year! Worthy contenders are sure to include Phil Anselmo, Memoriam, Skindred, Jinjer, Sylosis and probably others. But if pushed to pick one, it would have to be Hatebreed.

Re: Next Announcement

Sleep Token? Ha ha. I gave one of them a lift back to London after they played Download, only my car caught fire on the M1 and we had to wait on the hard shoulder for several hours for recovery. We got back to London some time after dawn. Fun times. They'd be a bit left field, but probably a reason...

Re: Next Announcement

It is strange how as the fest has grown this forum has died. Old guard must've all stopped caring It's not strange at all. Bloodstock actively killed off the forum with unnecessary downtime and with a hideous new look and feel a few years back. It's never been the same since. Whether that was malic...

Re: Van Canto

Just announced for Sabaton Open Air 2020, the same weekend as Bloodstock Well that's unfortunate. In previous years, it's been the weekend after Bloodstock. I was thinking of going again next year. I guess I won't be now. As for Van Canto, I'd say no. Their studio output is fine, but you can't do a...
