Saxon maybe?

Edit: for bands that have finished touring, not for headliner

I can easily see Powerwolf and within temptation being in tomorrow’s announcement with WT being SG on Friday.
I’m still convinced that saturdays headliner is parkway drive but won’t be announced till February after their UK tour.

I can see the Saturday headliner being much heavier than the other two that were previously announced. Considering Sabaton and Scorpions are more or less melodic than anything, it'll probably be Parkway Drive :( If I'm correct, then I can't see myself coming next year and I'd rather go to Download to be honest :eyes:

In what world are Within Temptation a subheadliner when they've just played (almost) sold out shows at Brixton Academy and Manchester Apollo?

I’


Within Temptation can't be special guest, regardless of their crowd last time, they're still huge over here - last album got into the top 10 a few years ago, played Wembley Arena to a huge crowd, and just sold out Brixton Academy. They're a similar level to Sabaton over here, and won't be playing below them.

Within Temptation are much bigger than Sabaton.

WT may be big but they were bloody awful in 2015.

I would rather a heavier headliner got the last slot.

God dammit. They're in Germany on Bloodstock Saturday so you don't need to worry. :rolleyes:

I don't have much interest in any of the bands just announced, although Grand Magus are OK. I need to listen to more Metal Church and Death Angel. I guess people will be happy with Ross the Boss though.

Grand Magus headlining the Friday makes that an incredible end of day for me. Sabaton followed by them is going to be hard to beat.

Metal Church are OK, and Evil Scarecrow are always entertaining, pretty pleased.

Finally an announcement I can get excited about :D

Does Ross the Boss play his era Manowar material? Might be worth a shot I guess as it'll be the closest I get to seeing Manowar :lol:

Delighted with Metal Church and Death Angel.
Ross the Boss should be okay, Evil Scarecrow are good fun.

Never heard Grand Magus so will check them out asap.

All in all, a very decent announcement for me :yes:

Good all round announcement. So far, this is the best looking Bloodstock in years and there is easily enough on the bill for me to purchase a ticket

Grand Magus are good and will be a great second stage headliner.

Death Angel are always fun.

Ross The Boss is mainstage filler, but better than Hanowar in terms of Manowar covers

Metal Church I find dull.

Evil Scarecrow - FFS. Really? We reached the end of this joke a long time ago, and it's not getting funnier. Yes they were fun to see on the Sophie stage and the first time they played the main stage, but now BOA have managed to get them noticed it's obvious they're no good and couldn't write a decent song if their lives depended on it. We've all danced like robots and walked like crabs many times before now, it doesn't make their shit songs any better.

Quite pleased with this announcement. Apart from Evil Scarecrow who I get bored by.
