Yep, that pretty much puts the nail in the coffin for any hope of a Mercyful Fate appearance. FFS - how are the Bloodstock booking team so unbelievably dense to what their fans actually want?

Fuck sake, I really want to do the who weekend this time, but they keep announcing stuff I don't like.

And the fan chosen Devin setlist worries me, as usually fan voted setlists are awful :lol:

On a lighter note, I'm happy with Orange Goblin and Saxon but the rest is the usual giant pile of meh.

Great announcement ! five decent bands, three I'd really enjoy watching, and no rubbish emo-neck-tattoo yelping.

Another set of bands that does nothing for me. Appreciate others Will feel differently but for me personally, this is literally the worst line up in the history of the festival. Glad I’d decided a few weeks back not to.go this year.

Unleash the Archers, that’s the only big draw for me. It’s looking like a Sunday ticket only for me.

I'm not that much in to Saxon but they're definitely a good booking and make sense with Judas Priest.

Unleash the archers is great announcement for me, but not sure why they are on Sophie where they should be main stage :?

Not bothered about Orange Goblin and not heard the other two so gonna check them out!

Unleash the Archers are well overdue, Saxon are always great fun, and I'm fucking stoked to see Conjurer making it to the main stage. Still not enough to sell me a ticket yet, but it gets me closer again.

More cack

Ooh yay you can pick Devin's set.....can I pick that he doesn't play anything at all and doesn't turn up, like? Cos I think he's a bit crap y'know.

Saxon - meh, easy and predictable choice, a bit bored of the old knackers now.

Orange Goblin - always found the meh

Nine Flight Orchestra - who?????

Conjurer - saw them once, they were good

Unleash The Archers - great, but they should surely be on the main stage

I wasn't gonna come, and this is swaying my decision further towards no.

The Nightflight Orchestra are hard rock/AOR featuring members of Soilwork and the bassit of Arch Enemy/Spiritual Beggars.

NFO are ok but not enough to sway me to turn up a day early and book an extra night in the hotel. Sunday looks pretty decent (apart from Gloryhammer) but Friday and Saturday (with the exception of Paradise Lost) look bloody awful - kinda wish we'd have just done a day ticket now.

Conjurer and Palm Reader have a split coming out this week- why couldn't BOA get Palm Reader as well- it would be a sight better than NFO (so what if they are signed with nuclear blast and have ex-soilwork etc members) if their track Turn to Miami is anything to go by- looks like and sounds like something from George Michael(couldn't find anything else)
Saxon were expected, happy with Orange Goblin , Unleash the Archers (as well as Gloryhammer!) not my taste at all -they should have stuck to the opera circuit...is this ALL that BOA can come up with - half the acts are not really even proper metal ffcol

Conjurer - play everywhere, getting a bit boring the amount I've seen them.

Orange Goblin - play everywhere, were always boring

Saxon - play everywhere, bland, uninteresting and overrated.

The Sophie stage is a bit more interesting this announcement. Unleash the Archers are the kind of band that should be playing that stage, long overdue, and Night Flight Orchestra could be a decent way to start the weekend. Still leaning more towards getting a day ticket for Devin than anything else though.
