I remember Control the Storm being pretty decent tbf (enough that I remember the name at least!). Xentrix is pretty cool. Will check out the rest.

As we're travelling down on the Friday morning, I was skeptical about whether or not we'd get there in time for Death Angel. Thanks to Xentrix being added beneath them it now looks like we will :-) Oh, and Helheim pushes my Saturday watch list up to a grand total of 3 :lol: other than that, nothing of interest for me on this one.

Pretty good announcement. I liked Control the Storm last time, Guardians of Time seem suitably cheesy, and Helheim seem ok too. Bit disappointed the bland Xentrix are the last mainstage band, but they seem popular for some reason. But really, its a pretty decent announcement. Seems really early to have finished off the lineup though.

Lol Xentrix again? The crappy old knackers really will play anywhere for a few beers!

Control The Storm I saw at BOA a few years ago, I like that style but thought they were awful, I remember them doing a horrible cover of Madonna's Frozen.

Helheim are very good though, had forgotten they were still around tbh.

They usually announce the New Blood in batches once they have a decent number of M2TM winners built up to confirm.

Helheim are the band of the festival for me. I've recently discovered them and fallen in love with their latest album, and their previous album is good too. This announcement has made me go and look into them more and I discovered that they have been going nearly 3 decades! Their first album, Jormangund is right up my street and seems ahead of its time with strong viking theme and DSBM-like vocals (though I doubt they'll play anything from this at BOA). Their latest album is more comparable to Solstafir and Ereb Altor.

Control the Storm are an excellent power metal band who have gone through a lot of changes over the last 7 years, so if you saw them at BOA 2012 and were underwhelmed, then I recommend giving their new single a go called 'Follow Me'.

Guardians of Time are the sort of band that I went to Bloodstock to see in the first place back in 2008. I'm super happy that they've been booked! A rising power metal band from overseas. That's the Bloodstock I used to know!

Odd Crew are hit and miss. Some songs sound like really good melodic death metal and others sound like terrible groove/metalcore. I'll give them a watch though for sure.

Xentrix and Karybdis can do one. Boring thrash and dull pseudo-death metal

Good to see them book a band that had a genuine hit single. :yes:

Helheim are ace, fantastic announcement.

Xentrix are the perfect, bland shite repeat booking to round out the worst mainstage lineup they've ever booked.

Also, vicky being as professional as ever :lol:
