And prize for daftest post of the day goes to....

How one band being announced rules out a totally unrelated band who weren't even on the radar of being announced is baffling. Slayer are still touring, even if they were playing they won't be getting announced until November at the earliest and most likely December.

If anything Scorpions being announced means Slayer are much more likely since it's doubtful they will have three "lighter" headliners.


Slayer were heavily rumoured so yes, they were on the radar of being announced and their previous two headline appearances were both on the Sunday night. I'm not saying it definitely won't be them, I just hope it won't as it would be good to have someone different.

I agree that we are likely to have a heavier headliner announced for Saturday but if recent years are anything to go by, I would expect it to be a more modern band than Slayer. A combination of Behemoth & Dimmu Borgir would seem to fit the pattern.

But they can't have three headliners beginning with 'S' though. That would be ridiculous!

Excellent booking, never seen the Scorpions, so very happy to see them headline the Sunday. Should be a good end to the festival. Hopefully the final headliner will be on the more extreme end of the metal spectrum, failing that a good undercard of extreme bands would make me happy. Some decent grind would be welcome eg Pig Destroyer, Misery Index, Cattle decapitation, Cephalic carnage, Insect warfare, Agoraphobic nosebleed, Antigama, Mumakil, Rotten sound - lots to choose from....

He's A Woman, She's A Man; Sails of Charon; The Zoo; China White and Animal Magnetism should do you nicely.

Biff Byford's gonna be pissed off (though saying that, if they were SG or 3rd on the Scorpions day that'd be great).

They played third from top below Scorpions and Dream Theater at Ramblin Man in 2015.

Thanks for that- China White is ok but I'm still not convinced...I can't get that soppy Winds of Change out of my head everytime Scorpions are mentioned :lighter:

Scorpions aren't the heaviest band in the world, so don't be expecting too much in that direction. But there's far more to them then just ballads. In addition to the songs already suggested, I'd add:

* Alien nation
* The same thrill
* Steamrock fever
* Mind like a tree
CH3NO2 -- It's the only way to be sure
You laugh at me because I'm different. I pity you, you're all the same...
