By that I mean you'll hear their name a lot but hardly ever hear any of their songs unless you make a point of listening to them.
Maybe but Bloodstock is meant to be for more serious Metal fans as oppose to casual fans that just hear whats covered in the media, genre defining bands should be at the top (not necessarily headliner) in my opinion
Yes...Bloodstock is for serious metal fans....the fest that has Trivium and Rob Zombie headlining....
Problem with "genre defining" bands is that it's a very subjective term, I think Skeletonwitch helped re-define/defined blackened thrash, should they play 3rd now?
