Black Wizard you're right, should be 2 more RJD stage bands for Saturday and Sunday each. Surely at least one of the Saturday bands will be fairly big, considering Alestorm and Combichrist look pretty damn high up the bill currently.

Alien Weaponry have self confirmed in one of the Bloodstock facebook groups, New Zealand thrash. Not heard of them. Guessing they'll be on the sophie stage.

I expect the worst. More Cookie Monster bands probably. Sad!

All bands have names.


C'mon dude don't be facetious, you know what I meant - bands with name value that most folk have actually heard of!

I can't see us getting Venom Prison 2 years in a row, but I'm highly expecting the other 2 from the Trivium tour. Would be happy with Power Trip as I feel we need some thrash and I really enjoyed their album last year so would definitely check them out. Code Orange on the other hand were pretty awful supporting Gojira so I'll be avoiding them

Pretty happy with Power Trip. At least there's no Code Orange. Never heard of the rest of them.

Only A Forest Of Stars of real interest.

The rest is just filler.

Power Trip and A Forest of Stars are both good and Bio-Cancer might be worth checking out. Quite happy with this announcement. Three who are of interest.

So, currently 75 minutes after the announcement and nothing on the forum yet. Place your bets. How long do we think it'll be before they can be bothered to announce it here?

Obligatory comment: literally nothing for me in today's announcement.
