2013: Hell - Not so much "win" me over cus I hadn't heard them before but for a new band to me they were brilliant.

similar story with 2015: The Mighty Wraith Delain were brilliant also.

2016: Gojira - I'm hoping they will win me over this year. I don't mind them on record but for me it's nothing outstanding and when we saw them in 2014 at Bloodstock I wasn't particularly impressed either despite people creaming over them.

I'm at Download on the Sunday when they're also playing and they're at Bloodstock so they have 2 chances and hopefully will be better.

Really? I've found quite a few:

* Sinnergod
* Hellfighter
* Gonoreas
* Brezno
* Sanguine
* Metaprism
* The Mighty Wraith

And probably many others that I've forgotten.



I think it may be that I'm now on the internet so I check out all the bands when they are announced and any that I'm even vaguely interested in get a good listen so I'm familiar with them before the event.

Or it could be that I'm not very easily impressed nowadays. :lol:

2009: Sodom
2011: Hell

The only two that come to mind. Hell, because I love myself some NWOBHM, Sodom, because Teutonic thrash....and their cover of surfin' bird.

That is one of the best cover songs EVER.



Some other bands I thought of that made me more a fan after Bloodstock:

2012: Iced Earth
2014: Lacuna Coil

Before they were just bands I had 1-2 CDs in my collection but after their performance, they left a lasting impression on me.

Of the bands listed so far that I'm not currently a big fan of already, I think Gojira may have a chance of winning me over since I've been intrigued by what I've heard from them so far.

2013 - Mainly Hell, but with an honourable mention to Death Angel who I previously didn't like, but I thought played a blinder

2015 - Ne Obliviscaris - The most original new band I've stumbled across for many a year

Seen quite a few decent performances from bands who I'd not heard before, but the only one that has gone on to become a real favourite was Hell's first appearance.

In terms of bands id written off and wasn't expecting to enjoy, I suppose both BLS and Rob Zombie would count

Hells first appearance is definitely one that springs to mind. Also The Black Dahlia Murder.

No idea, I'm afraid. I bought mine from the band at a gig.

Pythia 09 (more of a discovery than win-over)
Moonspell 09 (had a couple of albums but finally 'got it' that year )
Thirion 2011 (had 1album before)
Gravedigger 2011 (poor sound but, it got me)
Sabaton 2013 (late to the party. But still whoop!)

Mastadon and Twisted Sister both have the chance to win me over

Yes, but obviously the most important one is Iron Savior ;-)

Interesting. I like both bands, but in both cases, I didn't think those Bloodstock performances were particularly noteworthy, and they've both been better when I've seen them elsewhere.
