Based on the Wacken announcement, I thonk it will either be Nightwish or Watain.

Personally I would much prefer Slayer than Nightwish.

Some decent bands in that announcement, doubtful that we would get any of the good ones though. I expect Sepultura rather than Running Wild, Doro or Dirksneider.

Nightwish would be decent, still hoping the announcement is Emperor though.

Slayer can fuck off.

Please not Slayer, nothing against them but have seen them far too often.

As it's on the Saturday, it's probably King810 being welcomed back after cancelling this year.

They're going to troll us, the announcement will be "Ghost up next!" :P

I look forward to seeing Anthrax again though :P (I joke but I would actually like to see them again :lol: )

By special they probably mean a band announcement but stretching that, I'd like to have Nightwish do Imaginarium in full

Not interested in Nightwish personally. Could see them returning but not sure if it would warrant an announcement at the fest? I will definitely be putting Sepultura on my Bloodstock bingo for next year :lol:

No chance they'd announce such a frequent repeat like that. Nightwish are fairly likely, but I dunno if they'd make a big thing about having Watain back.

I'm hoping that it's Priest, but I doubt it.

You got my hopes up that they'd cancelled for a second there. :lol:

Have just seen the other thread about the guitarist getting arrested. Be interesting to see what happens from here on in.

You mean that one London date? :lol:

Given Venom who were 3rd from top are the smallest band announced at the fest thus far, I'd say that rules out a few of those Wacken bands.

The only band from the Wacken announcement that would be worthy of announcing at the festival is Nightwish. And I really hope it is Nightwish as when they've done this before and it's ended up being bloody Behemoth & Emperor it's been one hell of an anti-climax for me.

Manowar or Priest, everything else can fuck off.
