Re: Next Announcement

That he isn't as big on the continent is neither here nor there - he recently played the Trix in Antwerp, which I've been to several times and is much smaller than the venues he's booked into here, which is what matters in this context.

Re: Next Announcement

Problem with some bands (BG, Epica) is that they're bigger in Europe so will get better offers on the mainland to consider in a crowded Euro festival calendar. A smaller festival could be in a worse position to make an attractive offer.

Re: Next Announcement

Rubbish Not in the slightest - how long ago was their last UK gig? The Underworld, bottom of the bill for Metallica? Now somehow equal billing with the likes of Priest, or someone like DT who can fill the Albert Hall? If the likes if Kreator and Testament have never clawed their way to headliner, n...

Problem is, booking him doesn't guarantee his attendance

Re: Next Announcement

Agreed - when Metallica did it the most popular songs were the standard ones, so would have been an average set with little surprises. Anyway, Priest never strike me as that kind of band - they'll have a set for the tour and they'll stick to it. They've never really indulged the UK as anything other...

Re: Next Announcement

So is it because its priest that no one is up in arms about a repeat booking like they were with Slayer, Megadeth and many more that had more of a gap? I think it's more down to the relative scarcity of Priest gigs in the UK - cos of the Ozzy tour, the last BoA appearance has been their only gig in...

Re: Next Announcement

Vicky just Tweeted to tune in to Planet Rock at 10am Monday for a double headline announcement. I'll wait until it is posted I think. Planet Rock's involvement suggests it'll be at least one band they care about, such as Judas Priest, Volbeat or Megadeth. They only gave Bloodstock a mention this ye...

Re: Next Announcement

Not a bad announcement - Like PL and the Draconian Times album, so that's a win, DH are Ok and made a decent album recently, Phil Anselmo - never liked Pantera much so not fussed. Regarding LOA - I think its fair to mention the singer - I've seen them twice, once before the transition and once last ...

Re: The rather morbid celebrity RIP Thread.

Not a celeb, but a regular face at metal gigs up here - Mike Woods. Last saw him playing with his band Heavy Sentence supporting Jag Panzer in London

Re: Avatarium

New record out in November. Not sure when they last played the UK, but would be nice to see a Bloodstock appearance if they don't come over for their album tour. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=npPd5f0GZQo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swO-VOEdIBA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHiM5RHOwhk Great...

Re: BOA 2019: Rate the bands

Friday: Saw part of Xentrix after walking in, and heard a bit of Control The Storm, but not enough to really rate them. Death Angel - 7/10 - good first proper watch of the day. Tomorrow Is Lost 6/10 - Pretty good Metal Church - 7/10 - another good old school blast, not seen them since 2006 Bong Caul...
