The Wildhearts replacing Phil Anselmo, I'll take that. Also announced for the Sophie stage:

Phil Campbell & The Bastard Sons now headlining on Saturday (Cattle Decapitation are sill on the lineup, just moved down although they are missing from the updated poster :? ).
Raging Speedhorn on Friday
Hacktivist, King Witch, Forlorn World, Seething Akira, Urne, Luna's Call, Ashen Crown & Thunderous Jones on Thursday.

This makes 12 bands on Thursday which makes sense as they don't need to leave a gap for the main stage headliner. Also would seem to confirm Night Flight Orchestra are still playing on Thursday so a whole new raft of bands are due for the Wednesday party night.

Decent announcement. Phil Campbell and the bastard sons and the Wildhearts are a good call.

Seething Akira are excellent and blew the new blood stage away last time!!!!!

Phil Campbell and The Wildhearts are two of the most boring, predictable hard rock bands, and they seem to play everywhere constantly. Nothing special there.

Or maybe I'm just sad because I saw the picture first, and thought it was Haken being announced.

Raging Speedhorn are one of the worst bands in the UK, why they keep getting booked for anywhere is beyond me.

Hacktivist are crap too. I don't know many of the other Sophie bands, although having listened to King Witch they are quite good at least. I wish they'd actually bothered to give any of them descriptions, so it would be easier to research.

King Witch and Luna's Call are both stellar bookings.

Wow, that's a lot of bands I've never heard of before but that's cool, more bands to check out. Nice to see Thursday filling up. Will be interesting to see the Wednesday lineup getting announced.

Aye, might be a bunch of new blood bands that have been booked on track submissions rather than M2TM.

I reckon we're due:
Wednesday: 5 Sophie bands
Friday: 1 Dio band & 2 Sophie bands
Saturday: 1 Dio band & 2 Sophie bands
Sunday: 2 Dio bands & 3 Sophie bands (including headliner)
The whole Hobgoblin & Jager stages (Friday-Sunday)

Anyone expecting Hobgoblin stage to be open on Thursday?

I'm pretty sure she's said Hobgoblin is open Thursday, whether those plans have changed with the lack of M2tM though, who can say?

Expecting Terra IV in the announcement considering Vicky said they are playing on the Damnation podcast. Too similar to Hacktivist for me, although they are better. I suppose its take what you can get at the moment for them though.

Possibly, Toxic Holocaust and Black Dahlia Murder are both gone now and don't think they were mentioned in the last news.

They were on Facebook, along with Nekrogoblikon and Cattle Decapitation (I may be missing some). I believe Vio-lence is the only US band still on the bill, so I'm expecting them to go soon, probably alongside Devin Townsend (I know, Canadian but still optimistic).
