Id have to travel a couple hundred or thousand kilometres to the nearest big metal festival.

if this wasn't a few days after Hellfest, I would seriously consider coming..

You went to Graspop for 3 days. I went to Graspop on Sunday. You saw me. I saw you. You saw my friends. I saw your friends. This means that by definition we had a meeting. So, where in Satam's name was the beer
I just hope you didn't miss any bands you wanted to see because of your little "beauty nap".


Maiden really made the day for me. Also Primordial and At The Gates were really good/outstanding, just like on Hellfest actually. And also Arch Enemy surprised me against all expectations. Unfortunately, I didn't watch them, only heard them from the outside of the Marquee tent. Will be checking them live again some day I think. Alchemist was rather mediocre, and all in all a forgettable performance. Comeback Kid and Apocalyptica were truly the disappointmens of the day. Plus, last week on Hellfest Apocalyptica didn't really impress me either... It was the fourth time already I saw In Flames, and once again they were rather mediocre. By now, I am strongly convinced I really don't like their new and recent stuff (everything after Clayman). And of course, everything I heard from BFMV and A7X was just plain horrible too. Can't believe these were actually main stage attractions. Sure they're mainstream, sure kiddies love them, but wow, there's absolutely no denying they suck majorly. So what the hell are they doing on main stage again!?

Holy shit. :O :O :O i'd have sold an arm to see all these bands in one festival(with 3 out of 3 my favorite bands, iced earth, priest and maiden)... good thing i didn't know about the festival lineup last year, though i couldn't have gone because of my exams. i'd have fucking cried, lol.

You mean somewhere in the world there is some sort of crooked market for crybaby's selling their freshly amputated arms? Always good to know. You never know when such information can come in handy (pun intended).
Baz Anderson - 16.06.2009 at 02:27  
Haha, this festival really did have the best line-up of probably any festival ever though. Just look at that first day! Judas Priest, Whitesnake, Def Leppard, Ministry, Morbid Angel, Saxon, Testament, Yngwie Malmsteen, Nile, Behemoth...

look, i don't know if you were humorous, sarcastic or just plain mean with this comment, all i was saying is that this was a line-up that only happens something like once in a lifetime for me and i just passed it, if you can understand my frustration with this, then it's all cool, but if you don't please refrain from such comments(if you were saying it in a non-friendly "you are spamming" way)

but if i got it wrong it's all ok
