Most of those bands are turgid dung, but Black Dhalia Murder are great. I saw them last year in a club so small their singer could barely fit on stage with the rest of the band, and sang standing in the crowd a lot, and I banged my head into Brian Eschbach' new custom ESP!

Yeah, they're good, but they've played every single metalfest and jump on every tour that comes around, so I'm pretty well burnt out on them. Theres a few bands playing this year I haven't seen live that I'm looking forward to, like Beneath The Massacre, Despised Icon, and 3 Inches of Blood (just because they're cheesy).

Ok, I'm off for the weekend.

We picked up:
12 pk of Newcastle
6pk of Magners
6pk of Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat
4pk of Samuel Smiths Oatmeal Stout
6pk of Dead Guy Ale
and a bottle of some crazy looking beer thats $5 a bottle and looks like it was made in a bathtub.

Is that enough for two people?

See you guys later.

No, but I'm going to see Heaven and Hell (Black Sabbath with Ronnie James Dio) with Down on March 11.



That I would love to see. I'm hoping to see Heaven and Hell later this year when they tour the UK.

You know it! Great beer. I wasn't too fond of the Dead Guy, but everything else was great, especially the Magners. We left the hotel with 9 beers left, which is pretty good considering we didn't have time to drink on Friday. We almost got thrown out of the hotel too for singing in falsetto voices at 1am and fighting in the hallway

As for the music. Behemoth, Skinless, and Dimmu Borgir put on phenominal shows as always. Another pleasent surprise was Lizzy Bordon, who I never got into back in the day, but they put on a great show. 3 was an interesting band as well.

I was at the fest as well. Almost got to interview Dimmu for Metal-Rules, but the Nuclear Blast rep pulled out on me, boooo! Anyway, overall another amazing festival experience. This is my 5th year in a row, and I have to say that while this was the weakest line up they have had, it was quite good!

You should have said you were going. We could have met up and talked fights for a bit.

I actually thought Friday was the best single day they've ever done, but didn't like Saturday too much. This was my 6th time going.

I actually didn't see this thread until after the fest for some reason!

I'd have to say my favorite line up was 2005; with Dark Tranquillity, Hypocrisy, 3 Inches of Blood, Behemoth, Sonata Arctica, Cryptopsy, and the almighty return of Obituary. It was truly a "METAL"fest! However, every year has had it's moments. Seeing Gamma Ray last year was ******* righteous.

2005 ruled, although I was pissed because I missed 3 Inches of Blood. I thought they'd cancelled because they didn't play when they were supposed to, so I went and got dinner, and when I got back everyone was raving about them.

Then that night I was staying at the Crowne Plaza and someone invited me to a party. I went in, and there was Allen West of Obituary.......smoking crack. Needless to say I left immediately.
