Black Album in its entirety? Awful choice.

I'd be hella down to see this festival if I could, even though there are only like 3 bands I would actually want to see.

Music was my life, music brought me to life and music is how I will be remembered long after I leave this life. When I die there will be a final waltz in my head that only I can hear.

It's just like Download UK..such a bad album.

I'm still waiting on the Sonisphere UK announcement but they're keeping pretty poker faced about the whole thing

Meh and Meh. And a lot more Mehs. Slayer might put on a show and Metallica is not bad, but there aren't any other exciting bands. Bodom are not interesting, neither are WT, and perhaps only thing I'd watch here is Mastodon. And meh anyway.

I knew it, last year was going to be my last Sonisphere. :/

Needs a bit more variety.

Even if they're only promoting close-to-mainstream acts at the very least they could include decent groups big enough for the event.

Fear Factory, Candlemass, Dark Tranquility/Arch Enemy among others would suffice.

Not a bad bandlist but hardly anything stellar.

That'd be pretty shitty if Metallica played the Black album there too hahaha. Or if they did St. Anger in its entirety hahahaha

Don't forget about Gojira! They put on a HELL of a show. Not sure what the rules on linking are, but It's better to ask for forgiveness then permission!

At Download or Sonisphere UK? They're doing it at Download but not playing at Sonisphere since they were there last year with the rest of the Big 4. This year is going to be a bit less metal-oriented since Foo Fighters and probably Faith No More will be headlining..which will be awesome.

I like this lineup though, for a mainstream rock festival it's pretty good and I always wanted to see Gojira live

I meant at Sonisphere UK, but since they're not gonna be there, nevermind hahaha

Yeah seeing Faith No More and Foo Fighters would be cool, especially in conjunction with Gojira. Gojira is definitely on my list of bands to see next time I get a chance.

Yep, agree 100% on that.

Honestly, it would be better if they played Lulu in it's entirety; then instead of listening to a boring album, the crowdrage would reach unprecedented levels.

I wouldn't go that far. The black album definitely has some redeeming songs. I think playing Lulu in it's entirety is against the Geneva Conventions.

Metallica is not covering anything from Lulu?? Oh wait....aren't they proud off what they did in 2011??! I would have love to see covering some vicious shit from their last output and especially when Lou entering in arena with them. Apart from that, great line ups *eyebrow* WT.

Meh, not for me. And Lulu has some redeeming songs... It's would be a truly special and unforgettable moment to see James, LIVE, declare what he really feels in his heart in soul he is and always has been. A table.
