Totally agree. Personally the more black and death the better but it is so disheartening to see many of the people I've attended with over the years not come in 2014 because there's nothing there for them.
Three of our group have supported the festival since it's very first show at the Assembly Rooms. It's those people who got me to tag along in the open air era. They were sorely missed in our area of the campsite.
Get back to offering something for everyone. Bit of folk, bit of power (bugger off, trolls!), prog too, amongst the offerings of the darker metal genres that have demanded.
No reason why when I'm enjoying a great black metal band on one stage the more traditionalist amongst us can't boogie along to something to their liking on one of the other stages.
Do hope the powers that be take note
