Ageless Oblivion are god-awful, and Alunah bore the hell out of me. Need to check out the Sunday bands, hoping there'll be something other than Corpse and Godflesh to keep me there for the last day.

Having looked at one of their videos online, it's very slick and has probably had a decent amount of record company money backing it. Which probably explains everything...

Of the bands announced here, that I know about:

  • Messiah's Kiss - great booking, love their studio output and they're a decent live band too.
  • Winter Storm - Only seen them once, but I enjoyed their set.
  • Alunah - Not really my thing, but a solid enough booking.
  • Blind Haze - Motörhead reborn.
  • Knock Out Kaine - Decent glam metal, a genre that's been woefully underrepresented at Bloodstock over the years. Like Winter Storm, I've only seen them once and am looking forward to a repeat performance.

That's an insult of a blurb, former session musician for Saxon? The bassist played a couple of shows as stand-in bassist. I can't find any of them listed as playing on any of the Iommi releases either.

Singer is ex-Riot and Burning Starr, the Banks brothers are half of Persian Risk now and were half of 'Blaze' back when he had a real band and not just backing musicians. The German element of the band are all from 'Repression', late 80s Running Wild-esque power metal band.

Love their older studio material, the comeback album is a bit of a letdown in the writing and production departments because George Kraft who was the main man has been sidelined by health issues.

Given that Bloodstock will be their third gig since 2002 they're the biggest draw on the line-up, probably not enough for me not to sell the ticket I have though.

Get in! Will def watch Ageless Oblivion unless they clash with the unholy trifecta that is Napalm Death, Dark Angel and DTA. I was shocked for a second because I thought they booked the Brutal Death band Annihilated.

Need to look into the other bands in the announcement as I am unfamiliar with all of them.

I can't believe that anyone is dismissing Anilhated as "generic thrash". They were well going before all your heroes were. And I think their placing on the bill is quite frankly an insult. :rolleyes:


Outstanding at Beermageddon. :rock:

While true, the two times I've seen them (including Beermageddon) they haven't played any songs that pre-dated 2010. Quite strange really.

I agree Gandalf,they have been going since 1981 and while i must admit to only being into them the last couple of years after being put onto them by a mate-they are really really good and should be higher up.The biggest insult as far as placing on the bill definitely goes to the Triaxis booking though.

Biggest insult in terms of placing? Well if we take the line up page at value and ignore the poster earlier in the thread I think the prize goes to Armored Saint. I know they weren't massive but they're a rare booking doing like 3 dates around BOA and haven't played in years whereas Raging Speedhorn (since they reformed) and Belphegor are over here a lot.

Well it looks like Triaxis and Anihilated have been moved up the bill a bit (and possibly one or two others).

Sadly it seems Triaxis are now back listed as the opening band on the Sunday.

Yep-looks like it,Anihilated moved back down again too.For an organisation that takes this amount of money and has been running for so long i seriously don't understand how they can keep making so many fuck ups-what with the lineup movements and the forum shambles,inability to book a balanced Saturday for this year etc etc-The next thing is gonna be people asking about a timetable so they can avoid clashes,if this gets posted within two days of the festival taking place i will be REALLY surprised-yet it happens every year.
P.S-Wonder what bullshit we will get about the relative lack of power metal this year too-they fed us a load of excuses about "bad timing","band unavailability" etc ad nauseum last year,"We definitely haven't abandoned power metal"-something along those lines they said.Rubbish.
EDIT:I'm not feeling too good today-so if that post is a bit whiny (and it is i suppose-none of it is really that important) then soz. :yes:

Thrash is a bit dead to be honest mate, I don't know what age you are living in, but there is no thrash around now that is any good, save devildriver a little while back,

so sorry man, grow up, get with the new metal.

Ha ha. Nice try. But we've already got Killing Time.
