"Non-Bloodstock" bands you would accept

Postby Kanwulf » Fri Oct 24, 2014 11:50 am

Any non Bloodstock bands that you wouldn't mind playing Bloodstock? Try to keep it realistic though. So no stupid ones like One Direction or whatever

Anyway for me, I wouldn't mind The Misfits or Heaven Shall Burn.

Is this following on from suggesting Toto as a headliner? :P

I'll spark some discussion - for a mainstream/'Kerrang' band I'd accept KoRn.

Depends how far you're looking.

On the face of it Twisted Sister wouldn't seem like a Bloodstock band but have played before.


Motley Crue isn't likely a "Bloodstock band" but if it wasn't for costs I could see them playing. WOuldn't be fussed either way personally.



Controversial one though Five Finger Death Punch I reckon would go down pretty well when they play but would create so much bitching and moaning.

Goblin. To headline the tent.

Either version, I don't mind.

Magnum for me. People seem to think they are not "metal" enough but I love them and I think it's sad that that they have not played BOA.

I'd love to see The Mechanisms performing one of their albums. I think it'd go down pretty well on the Sophie stage.

I would happily accept KSE. They are what they are and tbh they are cream of the crop in their respective field of metal. They are quite melodic and chorus driven and don't really have much breakdowns or mosh sections so I wouldn't say their main demographic is the stompy crowd.

I would also back Toto for the sheer nostalgia.

Oh whatever, some purists would say they're not 'true enough', but idk
