Oh man Acid Witch would be awesome!

Oh yeah there always tends to be a fair bit of stoner on the smaller stages, I was talking more about the lack of well known stoner bands like dclizardking mentioned. There's only really been COC, Down and Crowbar (more sludge) on the main stage over the years. I came across Atragon on the Jager stage last year though and they've become one of my favourite stoner bands! :yes:

These two statements are total nonsense. Did you watch Kreator last year? So dead.

[quote="dclizardking"]

There was the 'well known' caveat in there - most of those can't fill a phone box and lurk on all dayer bills in pubs. For main-stage it's been CoC, Down, Orange Goblin (who shed the stonery stuff ages ago but still have the association from the early albums) and Graveyard was busy when they moved into the tent. There's only a handful that have a big crossover with metal - Clutch being probably the biggest, then Monster Magnet, but as much as 'stoner' stuff is my main listening, I'd rather pay to see Desertfest do it well than BoA doing a half arsed attempt at being diverse by having token bands instead of metal ones that also lurk about in pubs.

As for doom, yep agree. More fitting with a metal festival than stoner and the likes of Trouble, Candlemass type bands are missing but when CM played HRH doom there were far fewer that night than at OG so even with a 10 quid ticket they're not much of a draw and I've been in half empty clubs for Pentgram (now depleted without Bobby), Vitus and anything Winos done.

Im probably biased as its my favourite genre but I do find the lack of bigger folk metal names in recent years pretty weird because when they did book it the bands always pulled big crowds.

Seems odd to just stop doing something that works

Well Devin Townsend has posted saying he's put DTP on ice and will be working on new projects. He won't be playing live till next year so he won't be SG

That could happen. They're playing a festival in the Czech Republic the weekend before. However, they're down to play Hard Rock Hell in November:

I couldn't find any mention of that show being a UK festival exclusive but it could be.

As for the Trivium suggestion, I would be very underwhelmed by them as special guest. (Which would fit well with recent announcements!) They're not a band I have any particular problem with but I just don't have any interest in them anymore. When 'Ascendancy' came out in 2005 I was a massive fan but a couple of years later they'd changed and my music taste had changed. The two did not change together. I've heard bits of their recent stuff and it sounds OK and if I were to give them a chance I'd probably like it, but I just don't care anymore.

I still think Epica are a decent shout for special guest (Wacken the weekend before and an Austrian festival the weekend after Bloodstock). To be announced on Tuesday April 17th. :P

On top of the Slayer news and some tv shows I like coming to an end, this is just the cherry on top of the crap pile for me first world problems I know

Well they're doing some shows soon in March? (theres a thread somewhere) in the UK already anyway; that and don't think HRH get many/any exclusives anyway, most headliners to events I've attended do so amongst a larger UK tour.
