This is where all the main bands sit on my Spotify chart, which I've been using for 10 years or so.

29. Dark Tranquillity - 1,759 plays
36. Judas Priest - 1,443
75. Sacred Reich - 813
84. Saxon - 734
150. Gloryhammer - 349
162. Orange Goblin - 315
233. Behemoth - 176
249. Cattle Decapitation - 156
298. Vio-lence - 107
748. Paradise Lost - 17
770. Life of Agony - 16
819. Diamond Head - 15
1,028. Black Dahlia Murder - 10
1,295. Devin Townsend Project - 7
1,295. Unleash the Archers - 7
1,416. Devin Townsend - 5
1,492. Memoriam - 4
1,586. The Night Flight Orchestra - 3

(-) Skindred, Philip Anselmo, Jinjer, Conjurer, Butcher Babies, Bloodywood, Green Lung, Rameginc., Bossk - 0

It'll come as no surprise that I haven't bought a ticket! The only bands I'd be genuinely excited to see are Dark Tranquillity, Sacred Reich and Vio-lence. Although Saxon are always fun. Priest without Downing or Tipton I'm completely ambivalent towards.

devin- will deffo see super excited never been able to catch him live , strange concidering how often he is in the uk.

skindred- will most likely watch should be good after a few beers

phil- again will probs watch but more as a few peeps im camping with love pantera, always been more of a down fan myself

dark tranqulity- my melodeth senses ae tingling super hype hope they play a fair bit of the gallery

sacred reich- a good thrash band yay missed the tour last year so super up for this

bloodywood- again same with skindred

bossk - my bois <3 new stuff should be out by then and the tune they played at atg sounded huge,shame its gonna be a short set

behemoth- excited for this especally ifd the orchestra rumours are true not a fan of the newer stuff but with some live strings behind it that could convert me

paradise lost- hype ,draconian times was the album that led me down the rabbit hole of heavier stufdf for sure. not my fav album by them ....but we would never get a host in full gig would we

vio-ence - dont know much about them but phil is one of my fav guitarists and will be nice to see him shredding away and being happy and not controlled by robb

jinjer- never really got the hype but quite djenty and technical so will probs go

conjurer - so fucking proud of these lads, always thought they where doomed to be one of those hrh type bands when they first started but the broke free from that and are some of the loviest guys about

cattle decap - yay closing the night too will be a highlight

memeoriam- love them but have a feeling they will clash with someone , if they dont will deffo go

ramage inc- need to listen to more but like what im hearing


priest- fuck yeah , slayed it in 18 will slay in 2020 and will try not to get as drunk so i remember it

saxon- again nott seen them since 14 bloodstock so will be a nice treat and a good singalong on sunday eve

gloryhammer- not that fussed

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER - main reason im going the set back in 2012 is still one of the most fun sets i have been too, will be my 9th time seeing them and new album will be out.... plz no anal in the mosh pit this time though

orange goblin- again not seen them in years .. if i saw them at bloodstock 15 , cant remember

life of agony- might see a bit used to skate around my village to weeds all the time and its an aboslute tune

diamond head- will probs go was listeing to them loads when i was in vienna a few months back

butcher babies- if they still have there tits out might see a bit ....

green lung - one of the best upcoming uk bands, woodland rites is one of the best uk doom albums since black masses imo. nice relaxing smoke beforehand and it could be set of the weekend

unleash the archers- ngl never listenend to them until they where announced and god they are good but agree with you guys and feel the sophie will be rammed and they should be on the main

night flight orchestra- best band the could have booked for the thursday ( well carpenter brut would be better) but these guys will be a great way to start the weekend

Looking at it now it's fleshed out a bit, and I've definitely got stuff to see each day -

Thursday - Nightflight Orchestra, Raised by Owls
Friday - Devin, Skindred, Dark Tranquility, Svalbard, Soen, Bossk
Saturday - Behemoth, Paradise Lost, Sylosis, Toxic Holocaust, Conjurer, Ramage Inc
Sunday - Priest, Saxon, Gloryhammer, Orange Goblin, Diamond Head, Green Lung, Unleash the Archers

And I'm sure there are others on the line-up that I'd not mind seeing - the above are just the standouts.
