Gloryhammer played Heaven which is only a thousand yet Chris' other band Alestorm played larger venues yet got the same spot. Just don't see how Gloryhammer are on the same level.
Alestorm could realistically have been special guests - if Paradise Lost, Saxon, Powerwolf, At The Gates and Kreator can take the SG slot, then Alestorm certainly could have as well.
Gloryhammer probably aren't as big, but they rammed out Heaven and could have easily played a larger venue. Compared to the other bands this year in the 3rd slot, the justify the position, with Phil Anselmo playing the underworld last time he was here.
