Yeah, I can't think of many bands that are really, really heavy, but also utilise a load of pyro.

You reckon?

That would be a massive turnaround from the organisers, as they clearly can't stand Watain after how they were last time.

Good luck having "tons* of pyro" in the tent.... :flame:

When they say tonnes of pyro do they mean relative to the sophie stage or in general? I can an issue if it's the latter :lol:

Where did you find this? Yeah I can't see tonnes of pyro being allowed in the tent :lol: Unless they mean pyro on a smaller scale similar to pyrohex?

Watain would be fine in the Sophie, I've seen them at their own show and their usual pyro is fairly minimal. So the Sophie would probably be a step up, lol.

Oh my god, that would be great. Firstly because they are cracking live, secondly because I could mine the salt for days on social media. :lol:

I've seen them at a couple of the big festivals and they are good fun, but I would be pretty pissed off if they showed up at Bloodstock.

Book a controversial band years after they had peaked and so most of their draw has dwindled? Yep, sounds like something BOA would do :lol:

I heard someone mention that at BOA this year, they also said Sepultura and The Black Dahlia Murder are playing and that the Friday SOPHIE headliner is going to be heavy to please the people who will be pissed off at the Main stage headliner.

We shall see.
