They supported Saxon on the last tour. Which was only six months ago.

On the build up to that - Fast Eddie called out Toby Jepson for bailing on the band to do a Little Angels reunion, leaving them in the lurch and wasting good opportunities

Pretty sure there were rumours of Tygers of Pan Tang playing a few months ago. What happened to that rumour?

I realise its not gunna happen this year but what do you guys thing about van canto 'playing' bloodstock.

I know they get a lot of crap but i personaly think they are good and something a bit different which is something i like in a band.

anyhow just want some opinons. also stop painting king 810 with the same brush as hatebreed, i understand not liking hatebreed but there are miles of difference in talent between the two, king 810 and whitechaple are like hatebreeds younger brother who wishes he could play as well.

Hatebreed are alot better than King 810, but that doesn't say much. I actually like a bit of Hatebreed, but what is pissing me and alot of people off about them is how regularly they play Bloodstock and take a big slot, when they are arguably not metal and many see them as not the kind of band appropriate for Bloodstock.
I don't have a problem with Whitechapel, used to quite like them but not my thing anymore, but at least they don't take up a big slot and they seem very current in the 'scene' the kids seem to like them. I'll just watch something else or have a beer.

King 810 are shitter than Hatebreed yes, but they're both still shit.

I'd happily have Van Canto as I've not seen them before.

Van Canto would be great.

There's so many bands that would be brilliant for BOA, but will probably never be booked.

I disagree. Hatebreed are lowest common denominator "metal", they have nothing more interesting to say than "Destroy Everything". They play the most boring music I've heard in a long time. King 810 at least try and mix it up in parts. They aren't much better, but they have their moments - the trouble is they take themselves far too seriously.

Whitechapel are just shit though, and I'd still say them at Bloodstock is the worst thing I've ever seen at the festival.

I'd like to have faith in that sentiment, but sadly Bloodstock have continually let us down on that front year after year so I'm not getting my hopes up.

Will probably end up being some more metalcore shite that nobody's heard of.

That is the closest thing I've seen to something positive towards 810 that I've seen by someone who wasn't paid/lent on to give a good review :o

But hold your horses mate, Chelsea Grin are on the line up, give Whitechapel a little bit of credit, at least they don't sound like a bunch of 16 year olds trying to act angsty and cool.

Given there are 4 RJD slots left, 1 slot is usually left for the fortnight (or week I can't remember) before the festival I can see 2 RJD acts announced; probably some small bands from Download.

I think I'd rank them from worst to least worst thusly:

King 810, Chelsea Grin, Whitechapel, Broken Teeth, Hatebreed. They can all fuck the fuck off though.
