Which member is it? If it's the singer or guitarist that's pretty much a guaranteed cancellation, bass player or drummer there is a chance of replacing them.

Bump up Havok, Winterfylleth & Fallujah then have Florence Black open? Could just put Xentrix in the King slot and have 4 thrash bands in a row...


Or just put Battle Beast in King's slot and let Wind Rose headline the Thursday, gives the main stage more variety, and BB are way too big to be playing the Thursday night anyway.

Wouldn't that mean they get a shorter set and piss off people coming on Thursday mainly to see them?

It is their guitarist. IIRC they only have one guitar too.

Honestly I think the gimmick of being big hard men with their guns is what makes them popular, I could see their audiences vanishing if they stopped carrying.

The day that audience discovers gangsta rap is the day 810 break up :lol:

Also, just read an interview with the singer from Ghost (Papa something :eyes: ) and he has said:

"You might hear a few songs that we haven't played, but we won't play any new material now".

So that kind of hints at maybe a few rarer tracks getting an airing.

I wouldn't know a rare Ghost track from the apparent hits. :lol:

I am at Ba'al's local warm up show and they have just played an absolute blinder. Debuted a new track tonight (which they will play at BOA) and it is sweeeeeet (they will likely close with it). It's been a flipping great gig actually: Tides of Sulfur (sludge/black metal), Ba'al, Vow (only their 4th or 5th gig ever, black/post metal) and Mavet (doom/post metal) who came all the way from Hull to open. Playing in a tiny DIY venue with excellent sound. Cracking evening.
