Limp Bizkit are about as fun as cancer. And I don't mean the band.

Three headliners i would watch -which is a rarity- but nothing to go wow to. At least theres no extreme headliners which is good enough for me :yes:

Also Agalloch on the mainstage? looks the totally wrong place in my opinion
this, sadly realised this some time ago.

Headliners are bollocks but really liking the lower bands this year, all it's gonna need is some decent Sophie headliners and on a what I which level, could be the best line up in ages.

Budgie, Uriah Heep, would UFO do it? Have a real classic headliner on the Sophie stage, tent packed and singing along

Some sense in the bollocks of other posts, ignore the headliners and it's a fucking great line up, a already more for me than the whole of last year.

Enisferum are nowhere near as big in that respect but i'd bet they have more dedicated fans, they'll be higher up as most of those who see their name and like them would be very tempted to buy a ticket (especially as it seems their March date is their only other date for awhile) whereas most people who claim to like Sepultura would look at them on the line up and think "nah, not worth it".

Although not me, I'm psyched for Sepultura :rock:


Really? I can't see much of that with Sepultura, those people piss me off! You probably get it with Pantera though. I'm looking forward to them too, never caught them before


Most people who claim to be Sepultura fans only know Refuse/resist and Roots and claim Max returning would return them to their original sound e.g. groove. They completly miss that they were a death/thrash band originally and that both the Chaos A.D. and Roots albums were packed with more than 1 hit :cuss:

I think this line up only has about 4 bands I am actually excited for.

1349 - My second favourite band ever so they are always very welcome to me.

Armored Saint - Had never heard of them until they were announced but I have really grown to like them.

Sepultura - Love them, even with Derrick. Always put on a good show so as with 1349, always welcome.

Sabaton - Despite being another repeat, I never really saw them in 2012 so would still like to.

A few other bands I don't mind, but not overly hyped on them. Having said that, I, like others, will not be going to 2015. 3 of the 4 bands I mentioned have already been announced for Wacken which I am going to instead.

When I scrolled down the line up page and Trivium's logo stared back at me through the computer screen, I laughed very heavily indeed. Shook my head and thought 'I hope there's a few othe bands with this announcement'.

Scrolled down some more and saw Sabaton's logo. Just days ago I had seen Sabaton live in Plymouth and I thought to myself whilst watching them 'I wish Bloodstock would still book bands like this' and here we are! I realise they played 2 years ago but they had such awful sound issues which cut the set short, although the singer kept us very entertained with his hilarious chit-chat.

Then I scrolled to the bottom of the page and I could've sworn I saw Agalloch's logo and I thought 'No way. Bloodstock only book shit bands these days' but I looked again and Agalloch's logo was still there

I simply cannot belive they've booked Agalloch. They have been one of my favourite bands for about 8 years when I first heard Ashes Against the Grain.

Who would've thought that my favourite ever Bloodstock announcement included Trivium?

I am so made up about Agalloch playing that I haven't stopped listening to them since the announcement. I also like the idea of them playing out on the mainstage. Similar bands have made it work outdoors at Bloodstock: Swallow the Sun, Triptykon and Anathema.

Oh right really, most people I know whi like them much prefer there early stuff. Only knowing 2 songs is stupid, the albums they were on had loads of great songs! And yeah there original sound was Thrash or Death metal not groove lol. I like all the Max stuff to be fair, including Roots! Think it was a great concept and theme. I even like some of there newer stuff, but much prefer Max's vocals.
