Nice to see I wasn't wrong.

What an absolute pile of dogshit.


I don't think even in my wildest dreams I could have envisaged an announcement this shit, but hey Bloodstock comes up trumps again!

That's what I don't understand as Nuclear Blast have way better bands in their roster that would fit Bloodstock

Well they're the biggest metal label so it's hardly surprising, I think it's more the festival being able to do deals with bands that have played before and get the for lower than the going rate, ie Hatebreed playing every other year, Skindred playing 3 times in recent years, Paradise Lost playing 5 times etc

Its always been that way, they used to just play a Nuclear Blast promo DVD on the main screen all day every day. I'd be absolutely fine with it if they picked the Nuclear Blast bands that are actually decent, not the tosh that Vicky seems to bum these days.
BANDS I LIKE FOR BLOODSTOCK!!!

Any one have ideas in how to best sell a ticket? This was one announcement too wrong for me so taken the decision to go to a different festival (Sorry if I shouldn't post this here)

Nah, Exhumed and Necrot are death metal, Toxic Holocaust are thrash, and Winterfyllth are black metal.

Checked out one Bury Tomorrow song; sound a lot more technical and djenty/groovy than Parkway Drive but still very melodic. Sylosis I haven't listened to get.

Don't say I didn't warn y'all about Hatebreed. :lol:

bury tomorrow have deffo gotten alot better , first album was great ... very bog standard metalcore though , few after where poop. latest and new singles are as you said alot more technical and the newer singles seems quite heavy ( for them). plus there clean singer is one of the few in metalcore i can stand. can see it being quite fun if its all sunny...something about metalcore and summer

sylosis are dank. technical/ progressive heavy thrash. leech is the best example of that and one of my personal fav tracks https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5A0H64hm4U

This forum is amazing! I love reading the quality of posts love or hating these announcements, always some damn good points raised

Personally bumping up PL as much as I like them to SG`s again isnt a worthy 20th Anniversary, but nor do I think two of the headliners are ready "this year" and certainly not Skindred sailing so high.

Brian Tatler may be an old man but Diamond Head still write better songs these days and more complete albums than bands who BOA couldnt even afford to book as headliners. Sure everyone probably knows Am I Evil, Helpless etc but when old blokes can write superb tunes, give them a chance.

I simply do not listen to Hardcore and all its offshoots so Hatebreed could be sensational or not. I listened to the new Jasta record on the strength that he wrote Dee Snider`s last album, personally really didnt think it was bad at all quite a nice listen in fact.
