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. Thankfully they're not overly cheesy so have got me interested - nice pick for an opening slot They're alright and will probab...

Re: Next Announcement

After giving the bands I didn't know a listen, it was an alright announcement but doesn't really add much excitement for me. Had slightly hoped that the last main stage slot on Saturday was going to be between PL and BT but should of gathered it wasn't. Given the bands on the Saturday and Sunday I w...

Re: Epica + Apocalyptica UK shows

Are Epica the headliners? Would be grand if Apocalyptica went on last, don't fancy having to sit through them again

Re: Next Announcement

this is looking like one of the best lineups for me since I started attending in 2013. It's the best one since 2017 for me, even with the incomplete line up so far :lol: with sunday main looking complete where abouts do you think the sophie bands will be and clash with? Unless it's stated where i.e...

Re: Next Announcement

Happy with most of the bands in the announcement but it does feel like filler, don't have much hope for the last few main stage slots tbh.

Friday looks to be the strongest day so far for me, Saturday starts well but falls off a cliff and Sunday is more misses than hits for me.

Re: Next Announcement

It's not very deep I'm afraid. Since 2015 there have been more bands on that stage that I want to see than the main stage, the band I've been most excited about has been there, and all of the new discoveries I make have been there (with the notable exception of Ghost Bath). Different strokes and al...

Re: Next Announcement

I don't think they would have any problem emulating BOA at all. I think they would be on BOA's level within 3 years. At which point they'll share the same problems and you'll be back to square one :lol: A lot of the niche festivals can't grow much bigger due to genre limitations anyway, you'd end u...

Re: Next Announcement

but the rest of the lineup feels like the filler you'd find on a HRH event, or bands Download couldn't find room for. The niche festivals have caught up and Bloodstock has sleepwalked into being just another festival. That's pretty much my point, look how many niche festivals there are now and how ...

Re: Next Announcement

Gandalf makes a good point, BOA's either sleepwalked into cornering itself in a busy marketplace or hasn't dominated any corner of the market allowing competition to find a niche. UK Death Fest/Damnation/Incineration- Death/Black. BOA can compete with them by booking the bigger bands (ala Behemoth) ...

Re: Next Announcement

I hope numbers are down at BOA, will send a clear message to the organisers. I doubt it'll be the message you want though, they'd probably look at the figures, place it in a historical context, look at the competition and say "we need to go more DL". Short of a complete disaster (which th...
