With Download & Sonisphere both making their first line-up announcements, the internet is full of speculation, chatter & utter nonsense regarding which festival is better. We’ll start with a few facts, shall we?
Download got the ball rolling with it’s announcement of Avenged Sevenfold & System of a Down. Sonisphere responded by upping the stakes in the dead band members Top Trumps with Slipknot as their first headliners. The debate now rages over which is better, who has been more influential, who gets the best part of £200 this year? LiveNation or Kilimanjaro?
I’ll tell you who wins. It’s fucking obvious.
Coroner, Triptykon, Immortal, Morbid Angel, Lawnmower Deth, Angel Witch, Rhapsody. Barring fucking Therion, the line-up is pretty much untouchable. Short of Sonisphere announcing Van Halen with Hagar, Death & Artillery, there’s no way they’ll outdo Bloodstock. You might have also noticed that if you buy your Bloodstock tickets before the 15th of December, they are £95.00. That’s £95.00 to see Morbid Angel which is a fucking bargain & the rest are free!

Oh & if anyone tells you that Slipknot are better than Coroner, kick them very hard in the cunt for me.
