On my previous last fm I had over 300 scrobbles for Morbid Angel and nearly 200 for Bolt Thrower. They're always deemed mandatory so tried really hard, every album, a few times. Still don't like them at all and I love death metal.

I wouldn't ever do that again. Normally once/twice on album, if they're at a festival maybe check them out and see if they change my mind. Only time recently I've changed my mind on someone was Leprous as they're one of my friend's favourite bands. Used to hate them, not being a prog person, gave them another proper listen and really liked it.

It shouldn't take too many listens to see if you like a band or not really.

Because that theory went so well with Volbeat

Did she say it's a headliner or no?

I hope that means we dont have to have them post any more about Parkway Drive on Twitter until that date then :lol:

It would be interesting to see pre-New Year Ticket sales over the years
If sales are slow do they quickly do an announcement or headliner announcement based on?

Are they really big enough to headline though? I remember them being only a support for bullet for my valentine a few years back at academy venues and it wasn't even sold out. I think they could end up as special guests but surely not headliners

Let's hope it's another Volbeat scenario whereby we are given the unexpected. I'm not a fan of Killswitch and had the displeasure of seeing them support Maiden last year. Even their show was stereotypical yawnfest Metalcore. Also if they were to headline, what a waste! Especially given the touted '20th anniversary'. I'm going to sit here and hold out the hope that it'll be Fate, which it won't be.

^ Seeing as I can see Devin at the Roundhouse in December, as much as I like him I would definitely need Fate to sell me a ticket to this. I'm hopeful for once though that BOA will get them booked.

I can see it being Killswitch as special guests. Considering they supported Parkway on their recent tour, it would look like a downgrade to have them headlining this year, but I could see them as special guests to someone big on the Saturday.

I see Nergel's being a twat again and therefore getting Behemoth some more press, can see them going back up to headliner level.

Not really a follower of these things, didn't realize this was a common occurrence for him. Be a bit weird to see them announced and bumped up following negative publicity though.

I'd be surprised if they were anything but a headliner, regular academy band with a large media profile and crossover appeal. I think they are the same size of other previous headliners (not getting into "oh they were the non-BOA bands") like Mastodon, LoG, Trivium and Down.

I think any two of BFMV, Killswitch engage, FFDP or any of that Kerrang/Download bullshit would guarantee my non-attendance

"Twentieth anniversary" I`m expecting "Something special" since its them who are hyping the anniversary so much

It`s early early days yet and I`m expecting better announcements more to my tastes, I mean thus far Butcher Babies are headlining Sunday :lol:
