LIST TIME! Definitely / Likely / Maybe / Avoid.

Postby florencethemachine » Thu Apr 18, 2019 12:49 pm

As we have done in the past, I feel like making a note of what will likely be the list of bands I will and will not be watching.

Definitely watching:

ROTTING CHRIST
SABATON
GRAND MAGUS
ZEALOT CULT
SWALLOW THE SUN
TAAKE
SCORPIONS
HYPOCRISY
ABORTED

Likely Watching:

POWERWOLF
METAL CHURCH
DEATH ANGEL
COUNTLESS SKIES
PARKWAY DRIVE
CODE ORANGE
THY ART IS MURDER
SKELETAL REMAINS
QUEENSRYCHE
ELUVEITIE

Maybe give a shot depending on how thirsty/hungry I am:

FOOTPRINTS IN THE CUSTARD (To see what is apparently so entertaining)
SOULFLY
BLASPHEMER
ANTHRAX
CRADLE OF FILTH
EVIL SCARECROW
KRYSTHLA
DIMMU BORGIR (Horrific sound issues last time)
DEE SNIDER
ROSS THE BOSS
BOSS KELOID (Friend highly recommends them)

Avoid at all costs:

TESSERACT
CHILDREN OF BODOM
RAGING SPEEDHORN
SHAPES
SOILWORK

Still need to research the other bands but that is how it is looking at the moment.

My categories are always - "Fuck Yeah", "Nice", "Meh" and "Eurgh" so the classification is as follows:

Fuck Yeah
Sabaton, Powerwolf, Anthrax, Children of Bodom, Dee Snider, Evil Scarecrow, Soilwork, Death Angel, Rotting Christ, Grang Magus, Eluveitie, Footprints in the Custard & Countless Skies

Nice
Parkway Drive, Scorpions, Dimmu Borgir, Queensryche, Hypocrisy, Metal Church, Swallow The Sun, Ross the Boss, Cancer Bats, The Lazys, Resin, Blind River, Sulpher, 3 Headed Snake, Boss Keloid, Damnation's Hammer, Dust Bolt & Witch Tripper

Meh
Tesseract, Taake, Skeletal Remains, Generation Kill, Barbarian Hermit, BongCauldron & Shvpes

Eurgh
Cradle of Filth, Code Orange, Soulfly, Thy Art Is Murder, Aborted, Incite, Krysthla, All Hail the Yeti, Ten Ton Slug, Raging Speedhorn, Red Method, Harbinger, Def Con One, Blasphemer & Zealot Cult

This year the "Meh"s are lower giving both more "Nice"s and more "Eurgh"s
Hell ain't a bad place to be(er)

BS 02 03 04 | BGOA | WOA 04 05 06 07 12 | MoR 06 | LE | BOA 09 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 | R1BW 11 19 | Soni 11 | HRH 13 15 | HL 14 15 17 18 19 | HF 15 | HRHDvS 16 | HRHM 18

Yay, lists!

Definitely:
Barbarian Hermit, Blind River, Ten Ton Slug, Powerwolf, Sabaton, Bong Cauldron, Countless Skies, Grand Magus, Swallow the Sun, Evil Scarecrow, Taake, Dimmu Borgir, Witch Tripper, Boss Keloid, Eluvetie

Probably:
Footprints in the Custard, Rotting Christ, Children of Bodom, Tesseract, Sulpher, Dust Bolt, Hypocrisy, Queensryche, Scorpions

Maybe:
Death Angel, Metal Church, Soulfly, Zealot Cult, Blasphemer, Def Con One, Damnation Hammer, Krysthia, Anthrax, 3 Headed Snake, Generation Kill, Skeletal Remains, Aborted, Ross the Boss, Soilwork, Resin, The Lazys

Nope:
Incite, Raging Speedhorn, Cancer Bats, Thy Art is Murder, Code Orange, Cradle of Filth, Parkway Drive, Sh>pes, Red Method, All Hail the Yeti, Dee Snider, Harbinger

As so many of my Nopes are on the Saturday, I'll probably end up watching a bunch of them anyway. I keep telling myself I'll go potter around Lichfield after Evil Scarcrow finish, and that is honestly the plan right now, but I know I'll probably just be lazy and stick around.

Main Stage

Bands I love: Sabaton, Cradle of Filth, Anthrax, Death Angel :rock:

Bands I like: Ross the Boss, Queensryche, Powerwolf, Dee Snider :)

Bands I'd watch if nothing else was happening but wouldn't care to miss: Metal Church, Children of Bodom, The Scorpions, Dimmu Borgir, Hypocrisy, Soilwork, Soulfly :eyes:

Bands I have no desire to see at all: Parkway Drive, Tesseract, Cancer Bats, Incite, Thy Art is Murder, Code Orange, Swallow the Sun, Krysthia, Aborted, Evil Scarecrow, All Hail the Yeti, Aborted :hurl:

I quite like the 4 Sophie Stage headliners but I'm not crazy about any of them. Don't really know much about the other bands there apart from Raging Speedhorn, who are dreadful.

I won't be going either way!

Cancer Bats
Swallow the sun
Evil Scarecrow
Cradle of Filth
and Maybe a bit of Parkway (see what the fuss is all about)

and last but not least Witch tripper (Having only been listening to them for a couple of weeks I think i'm actually most excited for them

All the rest of the acts...If i see them and they are good then all is well. If I see them and they are awful then I will learn my lesson and if I dont see them then no harm done!

Mine is quite easy, as I know what I like

I'll watch most anything, once.

I'll avoid the emoscreamo bands, as I know I don't like that type of music. Sorry Code Orange, Shapes, ParkwayFive...

Friday - Definitely:
Metal Church
Soulfly
Children of Bodom
Powerworlf
Sabaton
Grand Magus

Friday - Maybe:
Death Angel (if we get in early enough)

Saturday - Definitely:
Cradle of Filth
Anthrax

Saturday - Maybe:
Parkway Drive (if the folk we're splitting the taxi back to the hotel with want to stay and watch them)

Sunday - Definitely:
Dee Snider
Queensryche
Dimmu Borgir
Scorpions

Sunday - Maybe:
Ross the Boss (undecided. I like Manowar but he's a dick)
Soilwork & Hypocrisy (if I'm in the arena already)
Eluveitie (planning on staying for them but it depends how knackered we are)

I'll be avoiding everything else because I either actively dislike it or, to be honest, I can't be bothered spending ages on youtube researching almost two stages' worth of bands - I'd rather chill out and drink with friends in the campsite.
