Arch Enemy's stock has fallen quite considerably in recent years. I would expect them to be third or even fourth nowadays.


At last, some good news :lol:

Oh yes, i wasn't even aware there was a Paris download. That's good then, more to choose from if it comes down to repeat bookings, and they're a repeat that I wouldn't mind.

Download France? That's a brave move, taking on Hellfest, be interesting to see how well it sells. I guess the Maiden exclusive will help. If the English version gets Sabaton, Ghost, Anthrax and Amon Amarth I'd be tempted to go!

I'd be happy if they got Sabaton but I'd rather see Amon at Bloodstock as they'd get a much longer set.

Doubt they'll do festivals the first time round if that happens. o2 Arena to milk the cash first...

It's too late for festivals now. The major ones have already announced their headliners, and G'n'R wouldn't settle for anything other than the headline slot.

Bloodstock still have a headliner to announce :P

It's not too late for festivals, a fair few have vacant headline slots, it's slim but possible that they might be doing festivals

GNR could do their own run of outdoor stadiums without needing a festival - Hyde Park are yet to announce their full line. Did hear that the rumours are circulating as it can't be confirmed until Slash's divorce comes thru and his ex can't claim any of the money!

Pleased that Nightwish are at Download this year because at Bloodstock they'd surely headline and whilst I wouldn't be against that I wouldn't want them to be the main closing headliner.

Arch Enemy, Anthrax and Amon Amarth weren't announced for UK Download only Paris so maybe they'll each play Bloodstock?

Anthrax would be a surprising one but a slight potential headliner?

Judas Priest headlining with Anthrax supporting and Arch Enemy just before them would be great for me though.

Amon Amarth subbing Mastodon.

:yes:

That would just get everyone (especially me) annoyed at more high slots being taken up by repeats. And not very good ones at that (I like Anthrax, but they play so often over here I don't really care to see them again). Arch Enemy haven't played in a while but they are terrible, so I'd rather not see them and Amon played 2 years ago. Too soon, which means they are bound to play.

I can defnitely see the issue with repeats and both Amon Amarth and Anthrax played recently although would be 3 years for Anthrax by the time of the festival which isn't too bad.

I think Anthrax and Amon Amarth if they play will naturally get high slots as they always put on impressive shows.

I'm sure people would complain but I bet a lot wold enjoy it too.

I'd be happy with either Anthrax or Amon Amarth back as they're such good live bands. I'm hoping Ghost might get a special guest slot, haven't played Bloodstock before and seem in vogue. Although if offered Download I suspect they'd choose that instead.
