I'd be down for Twisted Sister, so long as they're headlining the Friday night, as I'm still holding onto the possibility of Priest headlining Sunday

They're the only band that I've ever seen get 50,000 Germans jump up and down in unison. If that's not good enough to headline then I don't know what is. :lol:


David Hasselhoff could get 999999999999 Germans jump up and down if he wanted to.

I've seen Twisted Sister convert many a non believer live. They put on a fantastic show. Also, their first couple of albums are pretty kick ass heavy metal, certainly in context of when they were recorded. It wasn't until Stay Hungry that they became someqhat mainstream.

I would love the Satyricon rumour to be true (and it looks likely that it will be) - just not headlining. My guess is 3rd from top on Sunday based on that Bandsintown thing. I love the Nemesis Divina album having only given it a full listen through when they announced that they would be playing it in full. I didn't realise it was considered such a classic album! Now I see why it is, though.

Twisted Sister - I don't like them on record, and didn't watch them at BOA 2010. But so many forumers have said such great things about their headline set, I would probably check them out at BOA 2016 if they were to be announced, purely on the recommendation from you lot (if there's no one else on at the same time that I genuinely like).

Slayer are back at the top of the Metal Hammer twitter feed and adorn the cover of the new issue. The stars are aligning :D

And after all that it's bound to be Five Finger Death Punch :lol:

Not long now. I'm still holding onto the hope it is Nightwish for the Friday. Hopefully not 5FPD. I'd prefer it to not be Slayer. If we get a repeat, then Twisted Sister please (or Europe! :D ).

Foreigner are playing Wacken... Sunday headliner?

Maiden are too big for BoA, but that's a good pick up for Wacken.

I reckon Katatonia will be announced playing The Great Cold Distance in full for a special guest slot!

Now that's a theory out of nowhere! Assuming you've got no backing for that?

Hard to see three sets all based on an albun

It's a good theory as Katatonia will no doubt be playing the album in full next year as it's probably their best album! Katatonia haven't played Bloodstock since 2009 so are due a return :)
