Is this supposed to make them worthy of the SG slot?

This is hardly a one off set, they played the Draconian set in gigs in 2011!

Fear Factory played the whole of Demanufacture in 2016 (an album easily equal in terms of impact), and played in the middle of the day! PL are hardly even that popular with the BOA crowd these days, they Really must have broken the bank with the headliners if that's what they're resorting to for SG, 3 bands that all played lower down last time and have certainly not grown in size since then.

I know they did, shitty Hatebreed played in 2012 too.

Well I think TBDM are shit, each to their own.

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.

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:
