Friday
Sabaton
Powerwolf
Metal Church
Death Angel
Xentrix
Grand Magus
Midnight Prophecy

Saturday
Anthrax
Dust Bolt
Guardians of Time

Sunday
Scorpions
Queensryche
Dee Snider
Ross the Boss

Still got to wade through the undercard, but will be lucky to find 1 in 10 if previous years are anything to go by!
Might even go and find a hotel on Saturday if the search is poor.
Does ANYBODY actually like saturday line up?

Well waded through the Saturday undercard and ... Parkway Drive are better than most of that pile of poo! Most of these bands are so far away from my tastes its unreal.
Only Black Falcon, 3 Headed Snake, Generation Kill,Voluntas and Empire Warning get more than a Meh from me.

Cheers for the recommend, I do enjoy a bit of NWOBHM so i'll give these guys a listen :yes:

Saturday is the worst I have seen in 5 years - I have scraped together:

Swallow the Sun - want to check them out
Evil Scarecrow - meh, but something to watch
The Wildhearts - definite
Generation Kill - want to check them out
Anthrax - definite

My challenge will be staying sober and upright until Anthrax are on. I may just spend most of the day at the New Blood Stage.

My Saturday list is looking more or less the same, but I fancy seeing Taake too, and whilst not really my taste, will watch Parkway Drive too, if only to see the stage show.

Should fill the day nicely, in between eating and drinking and (hopefully) the knights fighting. I'm looking at it as a rest day before Sunday, when I want to see pretty much everything.

Want To See:
Sabatron
Anthrax
Taake
Scopions
Soilwork
Aborted

Will Watch if Bored (so nailed on this year, due to the quality of the line up):
Rotting Christ
Grand Magus
Tesseract
The Wildhearts
Death Angel
Metal Church
Boss Keloid

Would Not Watch Ever:
Parkway Drive
Cradle of Filth
Dimmu Borgir
Powerwolf
Evil Scarecrow
Thy Art is Murder

Gaps in my schedule will be filled with the New Blood Stage/Sophie trying out new bands. Normally I'd do my research up front but winging it this year for a change.

Been binging some stoner doom recently, are there any bands of the sort playing anywhere?

Seconded. Absolutely do not miss Boss Keloid if you are into that kind of the thing. One of the best bands around at the moment.

Im running my stall but being near the stage I can hear everything on the main stage BUT will take time out to see a few songs by Queensryche (who I only saw once in 80's not sure about new singer) and Scorpions (my Dad bought me LoveDrive from a fire sale in 1978 in my last year at school despite the outrageous cover in those days and fell in love with the music right away) whatever the line up the 3 times I've seen them terrific.

I'm taking note of Parkway Drive comments as if people don't like them there will be a bit of an exodus to Sophie and the campsite so a few extra shoppers on the way so will make sure I've kept another staffer on just in case!
