So another hardcore band I've never heard of for the mainstage and yet another thrash band for Saturday (I like thrash, but it's just silly now). If they're going to book no-name nonsense they could at least have made it Beholder so we could all get our smug on.

Really gutted to loose Scarab, and hopefully Mantar are just switching days and it hasn't been updated. I'm not seeing any other new bands on the Sophie to replace them, but I might just be being dense.

EDIT: Just noticed Red Rum are there. Would have preferred Mantar as I only saw Red Rum recently, but they're good fun so I can't really complain.

Red Rum also on Saturday so I'm guessing they've replaced Mantar and Scarab

Wish I had put Venom Prison on my bingo, I've had an inkling they were going to be playing :lol:

I'm happy with Xentrix though, just hope they don't clash with Kreator or Ghost :)

Mantar have pulled out too. They're being replaced with Red Rum.

Considering how late they've pulled out, those are pretty good replacements for Mantar and Scarab. It means I should be able to watch Red Rum instead of Hatebreed, which is definitely a plus. Won't Xentrix clash with Kreator now though? That is a really stupid clash if true, but with so much thrash I'm not really surprised.

I'm surprised Venom Prison are MAINSTAGE big now, let alone second on mainstage. I saw them a year or so ago, and they looked really nervous to be on stage, but seems like they must have gotten much bigger. The amount of death metal in a row on Sunday is stupid now though, surely they could have swapped them and Xentrix around, to balance the bill just a bit more?

The New Blood bands will completely depend on clashes. There's a few I hope to see, but I won't properly check them out yet.

I don't want to get anyones hopes up but... no bands were added above Na Cruithne, which would mean they are a slot high than the app had them, meaning the wouldn't clash with Hell.

Very happy with Venom Prison, I saw them last year and they
were really impressive, looking forward to seeing them again.

Xentrix is another good choice, although if they clash with
Kreator I won't be watching unfortunately.

So another hardcore band I've never heard of for the mainstage and yet another thrash band for Saturday (I like thrash, but it's just silly now). If they're going to book no-name nonsense they could at least have made it Beholder so we could all get our smug on.

Really gutted to loose Scarab, and hopefully Mantar are just switching days and it hasn't been updated. I'm not seeing any other new bands on the Sophie to replace them, but I might just be being dense.

EDIT: Just noticed Red Rum are there. Would have preferred Mantar as I only saw Red Rum recently, but they're good fun so I can't really complain.


I don't think you can call Xentrix "no name nonsense" seeing as they are one of the few Heavy Metal bands to have had a chart hit. :lol:

I meant Venom Prison, but I can see now that's unclear. Xentrix I've heard of.

Ah. right.

Problem is they've replaced one band I probably would have watched but won't because they clash with Kreator, with another.

I don't know Venom Prison. I've heard the name and have always assumed they were something I wouldn't like as they always play on bills with bands I don't like, usually kiddie Metalcore bands.

Not paid to much attention to them but know they played Damnation last year and have been getting rapidly more popular since then according to some friends of mine who are fans

Wouldn't've watched Scarab or Mantar but will def watch all of Red Rum and go see the rest of Xentrix's set once Kreator have finished so happy with that. Never heard of Venom Prison so will give them a listen later along with the all the New Blood bands.

I've updated my clashfinder with the new bands, great that Na Cruithne have been bumped up a slot :yes:
