Did you tell them that you will be their best friend if they play?

Take one for the team!

The problem with Therion is that they're not the band they used to be. The music industry sucks. People don't believe in paying for anything any more, so there's less money floating around. Consequently, they've had to try and maximise touring income, and they've been cutting costs. They now play to a backing track rather than having a live choir on stage, and only have one male vocalist rather than two. That's several fewer salaries that need to be paid. They're still a live band worth seeing (and I'll be doing so again when they play in London in a couple of weeks). But they were better when touring with a full complement of members was financially viable.

But wouldn't they go more out for Bloodstock? Or are they just flat out skint?

I doubt they're skint. But I guess it would depend on how much they'd be getting paid. Bands typically ask for more to play a festival than they do to play a headline show, because they know they won't be taking in as much merchandising revenue. How much are Bloodstock prepared to pay? I don't know, but I suspect it wouldn't be enough to cover a full on Therion show.

The last time that Therion played Bloodstock they got an embarrassingly small crowd. I can't possibly see the festival being prepared to pay over the odds for them!!

And then on top of that they played an odd set. I still really enjoyed it, do think you're right and we won't see Therion at Bloodstock again.

I'll see them in Manchester in a couple of weeks so I'm not that upset. :)

On the other hand, their own headline gigs sell well enough in the UK. More so than many of those that appear on the Bloodstock main stage. Perhaps that's just a reflection of the fact that Therion mostly won't be of interest to the death/black/thrash/metalcore fans at Bloodstock and there hasn't been enough else on the bill to tempt fans of the band to the festival.
