I really wanna see Kreator, Blind Guardian, Amon Amarth, Megadeth, Hell, Possessed, Winterfylleth, Battle Beast, Inquisition and Wintersun.

Only 10, but that's enough.

To be fair, with this line-up I would struggle to get to 10 bands that I would class as 'must see'. I'm sure I'll have a great time and there are bands that I will happily watch because I'm there but as far as ones that I'm gonna make a priority to see:

1. Blind Guardian
2. Battle Beast
3. Kreator
4. Hell
5. Testament
6. Amon Amarth
7. Megadeth
8. Wind Rose

I'm interested in seeing if people are just sticking to the main stage. Looks like the sophie stage is competing well with the rjd stage so far

In no particular order....

Ghost
Possessed
Wretched Soul
Amon Amarth
Kreator
Devilment
Obituary
Macabre
Testament
Hell
Eradikator
Kroh
Decapitated
Ramage Inc
The Infernal Sea
Wind Rose
Zhora
Baal
Nordjevel
Heathen Deity

Probably a lot more by the time it gets here, but that will do for starters

So far (order not all that important outside the top few):

1. Arch Enemy
2. Amon Amarth
3. Wintersun
4. Hatebreed
5. Dakesis
6. Morass of Molasses
7. Battle Beast
8. Gurt
9. Wind Rose
10. Ba'al
11. Kreator
12. Hell
13. Blind Haze
14. Inquisition
15. Municipal Waste
16. Oni
17. The Infernal Sea
18. Season's End
19. Wolfheart
20. Ghost

Doing that just emphasized how Friday is still a bit of a wasteland for me, nothing I like even a little bit on the mainstage apart from Amon Amarth. I'll probably show up for Decapitated to see if they decided to start being good again, but I'm not holding my breath.

I'm normally the most excited to see bands I've never seen before but whom I've been listening to a lot leading up to the festival .This year, there's no-one I like that I haven't seen before so that's out the window. So 'll go down the lastfm route...

3. Megadeth 2,813
4. Kreator 2,691
10. Blind Guardian 2,189
32. Testament 1,262
43. Amon Amarth 998
59. Municipal Waste 814
62. Ghost 763
88. Winterfylleth 558
103. Hell 488
111. Obituary 436
113. Possessed 433

So...11 bands I listen to with any amount of regularity. I'm relatively interested in seeing The Infernal Sea and Inquisition and will probably watch Devilment, for no other reason than I'm a big fan of Cradle of Filth and this is as close as I'm likely to get to seeing anything remotely related to them at Bloodstock again :lol:

Of that list, I'm more interested in seeing Blind Guardian and Kreator than Megadeth, as they're both such excellent live acts. Not really expecting Winterfylleth to impress on the main stage and I prefer Possessed to Obituary. But otherwise that ordering is about right.

Part of me thinks 20 is a bit optimistic considering I'll be drinking but anyway :lol:

1 Megadeth
2 Testament
3 Obituary
4 Municipal Waste
5 Annihilator
6 Possessed
7 Ghost
8 Kreator
9 Eradikator
10 Decapitated
11 Soilwork
12 Devilment
13 Arch Enemy
14 Hell
15 Skindred
16 Wretched Soul
17 Hatebreed
18 Lionize
19 Amon Amarth
20 Abhorrent Decimation

and honorary mentions to King 810 and Chelsea Grin who I may go see just out of morbid curiosity, I doubt I'll get another chance to see them (heartbreaking really) so might as well go see how bad it is for myself...and then have an excuse to drink more to repress such memories :lol:

Do you not drink whilst watching bands?
:drink: + :hairbang: = :yes: :yes: :yes:


Yes, but I was referring to drinking when I'm in the campsite, the lethargy that can set in after a few beers and a good bit of banter means that some of those bands will probably be missed :lol: Judging by the rough clashfinder It'll be about 1pm before the bands I want to see start
