00:46 - Fearmeister CoB is an extreme power/melodeath metal hybrid imo
00:45 - Zaphod CoB is definitely power, regardless of what the band themselves say. [link] this sounds like pure power metal if you take away the vocals. Anyways, I'm off, good luck with the list.
00:41 - E.Mols86 Children of Bodom is power metal now? I never knew what the hell they're actually playing, as they themselves said they play melodic death metal. Oh, and Falconer will be added tonight. Iced Earth probably as well.
00:29 - Zaphod Actually I don't like most of the debut albums by power metal bands I like. You already have Helloween which is the first one that came to mind. Others would be Children Of Bodom, Falconer, Iced Earth, Lost Horizon,
Looks like a nice place! Althoug perhaps it lacks a bit of grass and I guess taking a swim in the lake is forbidden?
How was Tarot? I've just learnt about their tour, I might go in Paris.
The place is amazing, the best festival area I've seen. There's enough grass and a nice sandy beach, and swimming in the sea is allowed too (you can watch a band performing on one of the stages while swimming around ). From time to time a huge ferry would pass by just 100m from the shore - it was quite surreal to see them towering above the stage.
Tarot were pretty terrible, the least entertaining band I saw at Ruisrock. The sound was alright, but the performance was pretty tired and lifeless...
