Bloodstock booked Power Metal BEFORE it was popular. The same goes for FFM. No one in this country would touch it with a barge pole. The same goes for Heavy Metal in general, it was dead.
To play devil's advocate, you could say BOA are still doing the same but have moved onto other genres/reviving old genres instead of promoting new ones. Booking nu-metal acts like Stuck Mojo and Kill II This could be bookings in the same vain as Edguy and Saxon were a decade ago, except with hindsight Saxon have gone onto have a revival SM haven't yet. So now these kinds of bookings are just misguided attempts at trying to repeat the same success they've had.
