Re: Next Announcement

tbf Gloryhammer were probably too low down in 2016. In terms of power metal they're one of the bigger draws out there, easily sound out a good sized venue in London before Xmas, and there last album got to no.6 in Germany, plus they'd be very popular with the BOA crowd. Also the Sophie headliners s...

Re: Bloodstcok Bingo - All new 2020 edition

Unless the Sophie stage ramps up the quality of the remaining bands this year I think I've lost :lol:

Re: Next Announcement

Also, people complained about Winterfylleth playing in the daytime last time and now they're complaining that they're in the tent? :? You can't win. :lol: I do see people's point about PL being bumped up to special guests. Quite disappointing, especially considering they did the same with Skindred ...

Re: Next Announcement

Seems I'm the odd one out on the announcement, I thought it was pretty good :lol: Enjoy all the bands to varying degrees except Winterfylleth who I can never get into. Bury Tomorrow are alright though agree not really a band I expected for BOA. I like Hatebreed but yeah, it's getting a bit much now ...

Re: worst band on the lineup ?

For me: Conjurer. Just not my cup of tea, though good to see an up and coming band given a slot though.

For the festival? Skindred. Tour and play so many festivals regularly that I can't see how they can be that much of a draw; seems such a waste of a sub headline spot

Re: The UK political thread (formerly independence thread)

It'll be the UK scene that suffers rather than the EU if a good (i.e. not a basic one) deal isn't struck. Remove freedom of movement and place tariffs/taxes then any band who isn't firmly established/profitable is going to be screwed. The cost and opportunities to grow in a large nearby market rise ...

Re: Next Announcement

As for the announcement, I'm quite surprised by all the negativity given that it's full of typical "Bloodstock" bands and bands I've seen on the wishlists. None of the bands elevate the rest of the line up out of mediocrity (at best). Add in that they're either regulars on the UK circuit ...

2020 Band Ranking list

With a fair chunk of bands announced thought it was time for a good old list :D Usual deal, rank which bands you are/aren't looking forward to. Must see- Devin Townsend, Judas Priest, Cattle Decapitation, Sacred Reich, Vio-lence, Dark Tranquility, Butcher Babies, TBDM, Toxic Holocaust, Sylosis, Necr...

Re: Next Announcement

Almost certain that Phil Anselmo, Paradise Lost and Gloryhammer are all third from top looking the posters etc What a weak set of top 3: one regular repeat, someone reliving past glories with a weak voice and a band who was 2nd on last time they played (and not exactly smashed it since). Needs some...

Re: Next Announcement

Yeah it's disappointing that Skindred wasn't announced as special guests, but then were confirmed as special guests on one of the recent live streams. Very odd way to do it? :? They've announced bands who ended up third from top as special guests so are Skindred getting the same slot again? If they...

Re: Next Announcement

I'm no fan of Whitechapel, but no band can touch the stench of awfulness achieved by King 810. Someone is forgetting Chelsea Grin :P I certainly had until now. Thanks for that. Glad to be of help :lol: Saxon are playing as special guest to Judas Priest at a show in Austria towards the end of July -...

Re: Next Announcement

I think the Mercyful Fate train has completely passed. I'm sure I heard somewhere that they tried but it just didn't work out. Its just yet another major metal band Bloodstock miss out on. well there goes the last shred of hope I had :lol: Also, the next announcement is 10th December apparently. Ba...
