Delighted with Kreator but I don't care about the others

Kreator - sweet! Always awesome live (unlike Slayer who sound knackered live these days), and that new album is totally killer, so well happy about this.

Inquisition - fuck yeah, love this band.

....aaaaaaaaaaaand then it goes downhill:

King 810 - who???? They look to be quite high on the main stage but I've never heard of them! Wiki says they're nu metal, so no thanks.

King Parrot - ermm???????? who?

The looks in need of some more melodic acts I think.

I've never got Kreator, King 810 can do one, and never heard anything by the last two

Very underwhelming


Agree,even with annihilator I'm doubting whether to go..

King Parrot? King 810?
Couldn't we have had King Diamond instead? :cry:
Anyway-Kreator are good (obviously) but i've seen them so many times now that it's difficult to get too excited about them to be honest.
Don't know Inquisition.

Whoop! Well that's an amazing announcement for me!

Kreator are a great live band - should have had a headlining slot though.

King 810 are a band that I was originally sceptical about but I've seen
them live twice and gave their albums a chance and I'm now a convert.

Inquisition are probably the best US black metal band around at the moment.

And my request for grind has been answered with King Parrot!

Well done Bloodstock!!

King 810??? I think this could be the first time the whole forum is in agreement that a band is shit surely? Absolute garbage. These guys are going to get booed

Oh dear....

King 810 may rival Chelsea Grin for worst band on the line up, they have ruined what otherwise is a great mainstage on Saturday.

King Parrot were poor on the Obituary tour last year so will skip them. Inquisition are just eh, not bad but nothing great either. Having seen Kreator last night I'm on the fence about them, great band but not sure I want to see them again so soon.

1/4, just...poor

Kreator - Well happy with this one.
Inquisition - as above
King 810 - TBH, I think we all knew it was going to happen sometime soon, but yeah, fuck this band.
King Parrot - who?

Hopefully the Saturday headliner won't be anything like Hatebreed or King 810 and the knuckle-draggers won't be persuaded to get a day-ticket. Fingers crossed.

Kreator and Inquisition! Excellent additions.

King 810 are crap but who cares?

King Parrot not that exciting musically but they are entertaining live. All about the top two in that annoucement for me, absolutely chuffed with that.

Shouldn't a festivals lineups gradually get bigger and better over the years? Unless this year is just a lull because no good bands are touring

I'll give Inquisition some credit, their album titles are hilariously OTT.

"Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm"

"Bloodshed Across the Empyrean Altar Beyond the Celestial Zenith"

:D :D :D
