If they announce Slayer as headliner.... That would be the death of the already diminished create booking.

It'll probably be the other way round. Mainly because Slayer have a tour coming up and I doubt they'll confirm a festival date when tickets are still available.

I still think it's Slayer due to that advertisement on the side of the trailer. :P

Don't think it's Slayer it's far too soon for them to headline again! Judas Priest, Motorhead or Manowar will headline sunday i reckon with the friday headliner being Nightwish, Fear Factory or In Flames

I'm not a fan of Nightwish but they would be a pretty solid booking. Them, then Mastodon, then Priest? Sounds approximately 5000% improved compared to last year, even if I don't like two of the bands.

That show at Wacken was outstanding, despite my dislike for Floor. But at Hellfest this year they were really, really weak. If they do get booked I'm hoping it's 2013 Nightwish who show up.

Nightwish wouldn't bother me but I am really hoping for a headliner like Twisted Sister/Manowar/Judas Priest.

Just had a quick look at that Metal Hammer twitter and looks like Slayer are featured quite heavily. That'd do me.

If it turns out to be Slayer I'll be massively disappointed. They were garbage when they headlined (although they have improved live since) and it's not been that long since they headlined. Bloodstock is not in the same boat as say Download, where there are very few bands of the size to headline the festival, so there is absolutely no excuse for half-arsed, lazy bookings.

Really hoping its not fucking Slayer again but the fact its Metal Spanner making the announcement does not bode well.

Having seen Slayer in concert several times since 1988 I can honesty say I have never seen a bad show from them but I would prefer to remember them how they were.

Slayer without Hanneman and Lombardo just isn't the same for me.

Can't stand Slayer, I've seen them three times at festivals over the years and they do jack all for me. Hopefully there will be some really good announcements for Sophie headliners and the undercard.

So it's swung from everyone thinking it's BFMV or some other kind of DL band to Slayer in about 2 pages, hard to keep up sometimes :lol:
