Good start. Hopefully this will lead to a decent amount of melodic bands on the under-card.

Nah, this will be the token Power Metal band. Extreme Metal bands to take every other spot.

Not a band I wanted but I'm pleased for those happy with the news.

At least I got bingo points!

Not a fan but good to see another band being pushed up the bill, fair play to them. Will watch if I'm there but hoping the other 2 headliners are more to my tastes

I did have a sense of 'wishful thinking' when I was typing that. Hopefully I'll be proven wrong and I won't have to sit through a deluge of black and death metal before Sabaton.

Quite happy with Sabaton. I had fears it'd be something I find horrible.

Sabaton are a lot of fun. A good solid booking.

However, I think the most intriguing thing about it is how cheep they probably are, where will that spare money go?

Not for me but a decent booking and think they deserve it

Disappointed they did not announce other bands along side them
