Sunday looking awful so far apart from the headliner. Saturday on the other hand looks good apart from the hideous headliner, looks like Combichrist may be getting the 3rd down slot....which they're definitely big enough for, but I wonder how that would go down then playing so high up at BOA.

Friday isn't looking great for me apart from Priest, already seen Emperor do Anthems at Graspop and found it throughly underwhelming, Bloodbath I'm not bothered about and Memmoriam I dunno.

I'd add Nightwish to that, and Septicflesh and Fozzy are both watchable.

Pretty strong announcement imo. I've never seen Bloodbath so very happy to see them announced. They were long overdue to return anyways but I see how they may be underwhelming for those that just caught them at Damnation. I'd never listened to Septic Flesh before they were announced but after listening to a couple of tracks they seem very interesting and I'll take some time to explore them further. Doro is a great announcement and will bring a party atmosphere to the Sophie tent on Friday night. Not interested in Fozzy personally but I'm always grateful to have some gaps to chill out in :lol:

So far it's looking very death/black metal heavy so I expect we'll get some thrash creeping in soon.

So far I will watch everyone on Friday except possibly Memoriam who I need to listen to. Gojira and Septic Flesh on Saturday, and Devildriver, Nails and Watain on Sunday.

I would doubt they were that high up, if you're judging by the line up page then that's due to the formatting of the page rather than reflecting their positioning at the moment.

Can't believe I'm saying this but wheres the thrash? :lol: Hope they have some in the next announcement.

I think Combichrist will either be 2nd or 3rd band on on the Friday. The announcement said it was an early slot. I'm discounting opening because they usually specify it when bands are opening in the announcement.

Unleash the Archers just got announced for Rock Fest Barcelona. Hopefully they will be added in the next announcement. Could see them at a few spots on the bill, but how awesome would they be in the Battle Beast slot from last year?

I'd like to see Unleash the Archers, I quite enjoyed Apex.

Ah yes the announcement said "early slot" didn't it. Well atm there's 2 sizeable bands below them, and the first 2 slots always go to small mickey mouse bands these days, so it looks as if they'll be 4 bands below them at least.

Just saw them in Manchester and they were fantastic. I'd love to see them take a Sophie slot, Thursday night headliner would be incredible.

I reckon they'll be in the Havok or King 810 slot

I don't think the order on the site is accurate tbh. Would be surprised if Combichrist played above Septicflesh or Orden Ogen.

I wouldn't be that surprised. Septic Flesh and Orden Ogan both play pretty small venues in the UK. Not saying Combrichrist play massive venues but they seem to be bigger over here.

Unleash The Archers would be amazing, they were absolutely brilliant when I saw them tour with Sirenia and Tyr (well Tyr anyway, buggered off before Sirenia started). I would imagine them getting a main day slot as such, although my friends and I did discuss the idea of Tyr getting the Battle Beast slot.

After the upbeat party atmosphere of Battle Beast this year, Tyr would be a massive letdown
