Has it been said anywhere that's what Fear Factory are doing?

Does it?

Who said FF are doing Demanufacture?

That tour is for the 20 year anniversary in 2015, no evidence to suggest they're carrying it on into next year yet.

And Symphony X appear to have nudged Satyricon down one place. If that means Symphony X are in the 3rd from top slot, then it's way too high for them, although I'm kinda glad Satyricon got moved down, as it means they'll just play Nemesis Divina and not have time for any new rubbish!


True, but it now means having to watch them play a Black Metal classic in broad daylight. At least with 3rd from top there was a chance it would at least be getting a little but dark.

But of course that's not all, the industrial legends will be playing their iconic album Demanufacture in its entirety at Catton Park. "We are pleased that we’ve been invited to play Bloodstock once more," says vocalist Burton C Bell, "and we are looking forward to dying again this summer."


hmmm, so that's what it says on the Metal Hammer page, have to wait for the announcement on here to get that confirmed.

With the album being 55 minutes long, that would mean the 4th down slot for Fear Factory would need to be at least an hour if this happens.

Much as I'd love them to play the whole of Deman at BOA, I'm a bit sceptical, as it means playing the hideous A Therapy For Pain as the final song, which would end things in a really dull way. Still the whole of Deman would be massively preferable to their production line festival set we've all seen a billion times before, saw that at Metal Days and it was an absolute yawn fest.

Well that's annoying if true, just saw them play it Sunday. Would of preferred a standard set list with a few gems thrown in.

Symphony X sound pretty good actually, but the best news is Acid Reign headlining the Sophie stage, will be awesome :D

Whole of Demanufacture minus Therapy for Pain would fit almost perfectly and be an improvement, so fingers crossed.

Wouldn't be surprised if MH have it wrong though

5/14 I like, only one unmissable one for me (Satyricon playing Nemesis Divina) - yeah I'm really not convinced I'm going to bother with Bloodstock this year. Shame that the Satyricon one is exclusive.

Despite the repeats, it looks extremely strong for me so far, much better than the last few years.

Only downers for me are Mastodon, and the fact Behemoth are playing all of The Satanist (love the band, but playing the whole of that album is gonna mean omitted loads of absolutely killer songs).

Ah confirmed in the email:

First up for a main stage add are FEAR FACTORY! Hot from their 20th Anniversary tour for their classic album ‘Demanufacture’ this week, the band will be playing their ‘Demanufacture’ set one more time at BLOODSTOCK! If you missed it, don’t miss out this time!


Sweet.

And Acid Reign headlining the Saturday on the Sophie, hopefully this means they're be on at the same time as Mastodon.

Happy with this announcement :D Missed Fear Factory on their recent Demanufacture tour so this is a great chance to catch them!

Bloodstock also confirmed in the Facebook comments that Fear Factory will be doing Demanufacture :)
