Re: Next Announcement

I believe that post was made by Simon Hall himself, in direct response to complaints on the forum. There's a lot of fluidity in metal genres but Gandalf is right, Dimmu, RC and Cradle aren't going to placate black metal fans and neither are Metal Church thrash. Grand Magus certainly aren't folk. But...

Re: Next Announcement

It's amazing how they've managed to turn what many were saying was shaping to be a the best lineup in years into one that no one cares about :lol: Hardly any of the regulars I've been going with over the years are bothering this whereas the one person I know who thinks it looks good is the one who ...

Re: Next Announcement

Hmmm, I like Taake but by the time they come on the rest of Saturday will have probably eroded my enthusiasm. I like Anthrax and Cradle but other than that the Saturday is one of the worst Bloodstock days ever...it genuinely looks like the sort of festival day I started going to Bloodstock to get aw...

Re: Next Announcement

Sacred Reich announced a UK tour in November today, be cool if they add Bloodstock as a date tomorrow!

Re: Next Announcement

Hopefully they've saved something for this announcement to try and placate those who hated the Parkway Drive one! A bit of death or folk metal would probably go down well.

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

I gotta laugh when I see a band like this headline bloodstock and one of the pioneers of death metal MASTER get overlooked by the organisers year in year out. Pretty damn lame. If you ask me. As much as I'd prefer to watch Master over Parkway Drive, the organizers are in the business of putting on ...

Re: Next Announcement

I thought Ghost were superb at Bloodstock, as did the majority of people I was with. One of my favourite headline performances tbh. Parkway Drive are metal. They're a type of metal I can't abide but there's no doubt about what they are. It's also the sort of metal which is extremely popular with the...

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.
