The 11am get up

Bloodshot Dawn had a great crowd. Evil Scarecrow even better. Way better in fact. Never before seen so many there for the opener.

What bands would get you out of bed in time for a 11 o'clocker in 2015?

Gloryhammer - they are pretty much perfect for it.

Lazy bastard. :P

I've already watched a band before 11. And drank 2 or 3 pints. :lol:

Assuming the sun is out so it's fairly warm I'm usually up and about soon after the sun comes out when camping so whomever is on will likely get checked out.

This is really just a wishlist thread by another name isn't it? :P

I quite like something that you can sing along to at that time. Doesn't half wake you up.

So we've had Gloryhammer and a moaning mod so far :P

Saw an Aussie band called Babarion a few years ago. A fun band that seemed pretty ok drunk as a skunk. Reckon I'd drag my hungover carcass away from my kingsized airbed to check them out again.

Careful, it's this moaning mod that's not just closed this thread and told you to post separate wishlist threads in the correct forum for them.


Yet :P

Haha. Like it. Being more serious, if I'm guilty of posting in an inappropriate forum, would you be able to move it?

Reckon Alestorm would be a good band to get people in the arena early doors.

This years openers were spot on, last years however...

It's fine here... but I reckon something like Gandalf's post where the type of band you'd like first thing in the morning rather than just reeling off lists of specific bands who would be better served by posting Wishlist threads for them would be better.

Personally I'm not overly bothered as long as I like the band. Someone a bit thrashy that I can bang my head to and sing along to a bit would do me fine... although I do remember being pretty much battered awake by the sadly now split-up Bloodthorn at Wacken some years back which really blew the hangover cobwebs away - and then some! :lol:

I like having an opener that I know but am not exactly crazy about, like Arthemis!

Arthemis worked well for me. I was feeling a bit ropey before they came on. Gama Bomb was another one that woke me up the year before.

So I'm thinking bands that are energetic rather than mellow work best.

Anyone good.
None of that gimmicky or power rubbish.
