They're definitely on next years Euro festival circuit so I'm quite hopeful. Headlining Rock Hard.

Thank you for the welcome! And yeah I had noticed :p its ok its part of being british!
It didn't specify no, hardly a rumour Blake I know but I guess was being hopeful! And yeah thought they might do the whole festival circuit. Do you reckon Gandalf? What are the chances of them at bloodstock? Hard to say how big they are but would be nice special guest to Judas Priest! (Oh no I'm being optimistic!)

Haha I'm not usually! Just hopeful! I have a big list of bands I want and if none of them are announced I will join the ranks of the pessimists!

I feel like the other headliners will be Dream Theater and Black Label Society, I'm not sure why I just feel like they're quite probable.

Very possible, would not be good for me at all but I think they will have 2 possibly 3 more mainstream bands as headliners, hope I'm wrong! but I spose down and megadeth were both mainstream headliners. Anyway I'm sure there will be something decent on the sophie stage!

Would be extremely surprised if Dream Theatre ever headline BOA, it's not the right festival for them. And they're crap.

They went down well at Hellfest a few years ago.

No to both of them as we've already got two boring bands in the top slots and we could do without two more. :lol:

The popular Venom rumours are that they would only be interested if they could headline but that BOA would only be prepared to pay their asking price if it were the original line up. I have no idea how much truth there is to that but it seems a common story. They were beyond dreadful at Hellfest a few years back but I did enjoy them at their LA2 gig back in 2008/9ish (?). Mantas recently said he'd be interested in playing with Venom again but Cronos has said he's not interested in having him back :(

At least get the spelling right when slagging them off.

Also hope Dream Theater don't play, they're fantastic BTW, but I wouldn't want a watered down 'festival' setlist, much prefer the 2 3/4 hour sets they do on their own tours, which is never boring. :D

I'd be happier with Dream Theater than alot of the alternatives. Much better than Black Label. Can't see it happening though, not this year.
BANDS I LIKE FOR BLOODSTOCK!!!

Yeah that would literally be the three worst headliners (that are realistic) Bloodstock could book.

Weird my last post seemed to have dispeared, yeah that set of headliners would be awful, not into any of them. If there is to be a more 'extreme' headliner I'm struggling to think who it would be, possibly Immortal or watain but not sure if either is big enough now. At the gates possibly, but played lower before so doubt it. Would of thought Morbid Angel would be an amazing headliner but they weren't headliners last time either, so I don't think there will be one of that sort next year
