Think they'd be a great headliner, and should still be touring their last album by next summer

i love them but i think they'd be completely wrong for Bloodstock to be honest. much better to see them do their own shows.

I wouldn't say they'd be wrong, Symphony X seemed to go down great this year

I'd like it, can't see the Bloodstock crowd getting too thrilled though.

Saw them play Hellfest a few years back. Not really my cup of tea, but much more apt for Bloodstock than Mastodon.

Yeah - I can't see them being too out-of-step. Their popularity went up massively when they went heavier, before that it was small halls and package tours with Yes and Styx. I'm not a huge fan - their earlier stuff appeals more than anything from Train of Thought onwards - but can see them being a big deal for some.

A bit of a marmite band, but I'd love the booking. Friday headliner please.

They will be doing an Image and Words tour in EU in spring, it would be something if they brought it to Bloodstock! Yes from me, as long it's not an Astonishing set - that would not go down well at all...
