They are the heaviest band out of the three headliners on a heavy metal festival and I can bet just like Ghost they will pull a huge crowd who will love them. Give them a chance, if not go get a beer, get some food or have a kip and and wait for the headliner on the second stage. I'm not a fan of Code Orange or Evil Scarecrow but I'll find something else to watch when they're one.
I say good on Bloodstock for trying to find different headliners. Surely better than continuously rotating the same headline acts every few years.
Seeing as this festival is the alternative to download for the TROO/CVLT/ELITIST metal fans yeah, I can see why they getting a bit pissed off, Stuff like code Orange, Whitechaple, King810, Skindred and Park Hall Road are all bands no one wanted/asked for on the whole
I understand it's down to availability when booking bands, but there are bands that people have wanted for years or are really good up and coming bands that get overlooked in favour of stuff no one wants. Bloodstock has always been different and was the alternative to Download, but i fear it will turn into a watered down version.
