Sounds good man I'm up for that! Glad you agree! Yeah I'd rather watch One Machine too! I know what you mean a mate is really into them and always shows me their stuff trying to get me into it :lol:

Haha actually I think a bit of both, the only real feature that stands out in that genre is all the break downs and catchyness, even if it's not a very good thing! Not so much a redeeming feature, more of a trademark I guess, either way I won't be watching :lol:

Never really thought deathcore as catchy myself, breakdowns tend to blend into one so I guess that's catchy as you already know what's going to happen...

if that's what floats your boat good on ya, personally, I'll be elsewhere.

The glorious sun of the past two days makes me feel like it's August already :D

Oh don't get me wrong I'm not into it :P liked it for a bit when it all came out but not anymore! I'll hopefully be elsewhere too!
Oh yeah has been rather hot! It's coming around quite quickly actually!! Can't wait!

Very little to excite me, some of the early announcements were fine, but it's been progresively lacking since. I'll be pushed to even bother with a day ticket this year.

Really? Other than last year, I can't remember the last time the weather at Bloodstock was as nice as this!

It was pretty boiling in 2009. My face was peeling for about a week afterwards.

Aye. I think that was the year I got sunstroke. :x

Anything over 10 degrees is bad for me. :lol:

2006 was the best year for weather. I think it was held in July which kind of helped the weather a bit rather than August which in this country is the start of winter.


I am excited in a way, be great to come back for absolutely no reason lineup wise but it fills a void I have had for the previous 5 Augusts. Hope to see a few friends. Hope to perhaps make a few more. Drink a few thousand pints. Watch about four bands and hate going back to work the Tuesday after.

My excitement is all for May Comic Con next weekend, but I must admit I am starting to get hype for Bloodstock! Lineup this year is pretty good, although hoping for some huge gaps to be filled. (Giggity)

Not as excited as last year but I have so much family related stuff to deal with just now (increasingly ill father in law and a family summer trip to London to finish organising).

Once I get June and July past I will get more in the mood.

Current excitement goes something like Blind Guardian > Uprising > Bloodstock.

I'm excited! It's not everyday I get to go to a metal festival. It's not even every year.


Metal! So much metal!!

Just managed to get a cheap hotel in Glasgow on the Wed night is I can now leave there at 630am on the Thurs morning to get the 7am coach. The only other option was my wife getting up at 530am and driving me 30 miles to the bus station.
