Blog: Your Own Festival That Blows Hellfest Out Of The Water

Written by: Thryce
Published: 18.06.2010
Right this very instant Hellfest Open Air is taking place.


If you don't know what Hellfest is, congratulations, you are either enjoying your first day on Metal Storm territory, or you are the proud owner of a hot tub time machine (in either case, welcome).


For months we have bombarded you with Hellfest news and announcements, preview articles, give-away contests and more news and announcements. But now that the time has finally come, well, we're not there. And if you're reading this, it obviously means you didn't make it as well. Yeey us for not being there!



The look that says: "100% not attending... and biting the bullet."



The Staff Towers are pretty much abandoned now. Nobody is working at their desks. Marcel's drunken ramblings don't echo from our chill-out room annex bar. Our supersized fridge is completely empty as the bastards took all the food and beer with them "for the road" - fuck! - and the Canadian elites aren't awake yet so I can't order them to fetch me some new booze.

All sober and no Hellfest makes Thryce a cranky boy.


Can you imagine? Around this time, half of the board is there, enjoying the shit out of the festival with its many great bands, watching a good show in the summer sun, having a blast with the many other Metal Stormers, drinking overpriced dishwater (or whatever the heck the French serve as beer)... And we have nothing. Absolutely nothing.


Well, I'm not taking it any longer! I'm here to make a statement... I'm here to start an anti-Hellfest revolution...

Well, that and I'm freaking bored.


So let's have a little fun on our own, shall we. To hell with Hellfest and everyone attending Hellfest, let's organize one kickass festival that is way better and more awesome than silly Hellfest. One that will put Hellfest with their pants down. If everyone makes a list, we'll get there.


Here are the rules of our little game:

  • You can only participate if you didn't go to Hellfest Open Air 2010.
  • You can only pick five bands, and line them up according to the following set-up:

    opening act - warm-up - direct support - headliner - after-party.

  • You have one wildcard to summon a deactivated band to do a one-time reunion gig.
  • You have one wildcard to summon one musician from the death.


In short: just come up with the best line-up since the dawn of fucking time, and select your five all-time/current favorite bands that'll play just for you and your enormous wallet.

I'll go first.



[Insert kickass band] in the middle of their set on [insert awesome name] Fest.



OPENING ACT - WARNING The festival takes off with an exclusive one-time reunion show of Warning, the epic doom metal outfit that broke up somewhere last year. Those hauntingly beautiful soul-crushing songs will be a guaranteed hit, sending chills down many spines.

WARM-UP - HEAVEN SHALL BURN These days there are only a handful of worthwhile metalcore bands that truly deserve your attention, Heaven Shall Burn being one of them. With their death metal instigated metalcore this band will stir up the crowd like a human blender. The perfect warm-up of any festival.

DIRECT SUPPORT ACT - MORBID ANGEL Brilliant live band. No further introduction needed. If you don't see why I lined-up Morbid Angel, stay the fuck off my festival lawn.

HEADLINER - EXODUS (1985-1993 era) Let me tell you a well-kept secret. The best thrash band at the end of the nineties wasn't Metallica, it wasn't even Megadeth (puh-lease!), it was fucking Exodus. For the occasion, the band will be hosting an old school thrash night and only play material coming off their five first records. Why? Because it's my goddamn festival, and I feel like it, that's why.

AFTER PARTY - THE ANGELIC PROCESS After this evening of relentless violence it's time to take a breather and close the festival in an ethereal and mesmerizing atmosphere. Since the late K. Angylus rejoined the land of the living for a few hours, The Angelic Process can end the festival in mysteriously stunning style.


Your turn.

OPENING ACT - Malefice (my favourite UK band - check them out if you like Pantera, Lamb of God, or anything with a groove)
WARM-UP - Kamelot
SUPPORT - Arch Enemy
HEADLINE - Iron Maiden
AFTER PARTY - Devin Townsend (playing both SYL and solo stuff)

This way we get a nice alternating heavy/singalong evening, culminating with Devin doing both

Guess what? That's pretty much what they did
And I still haven't seen Metallica yet, but as far as pure aggression is concerned, they blow Slayer out of the water.

Ok, if it's a 5 band line up that is supposed to blow away Hellfest, it needs to be an all-star line up that would bring heads. It's cool to book an unknown band to open and everything, but it simply wouldn't pack the place as well as a full line up of unstoppable bands were on the bill would. Here's mine:

Opening Act: Hypocrisy
If someone will stomp your face in right off the bat, it will be Hypocrisy. With crushing riffs and memorable choruses, Hypocrisy will pretty much seal the festival with awesomeness. Its kind of odd thinking of Hypocrisy as an opener, but for a line up like this, it won't even matter.

Warm-Up: Nevermore
What do I say? I never bang my head as hard for any band as I do when I see Nevermore. If any band can keep the juice flowing, Nevermore would deliver. They have a flawless catalog of albums and they can lay down an assault of tracks that will leave you wanting more.

Direct Support: Behemoth
Sure they're on just about every festival, but I fuckin love their songs, their presence and their live show. Their music inspires and speaks to me in so many ways. A necessary band to make a festival that much more bad ass.

Headliner: Emperor
Might be cliche ,but Emperor is an ultimate headliner imho. I can see how it'd play out. Nostalgia would kick in, I'd sing along, bang my head and would remember it forever - exactly what a headliner's job is. This would be my perfect line up and I could die happy.

After-Party: Akercocke
Nothing like dark, lustful blackened death metal full of hate such as Akercocke to top the festival off. Honestly, I don't go to many Festivals, let alone any with after parties. So I'm not quite sure what they consist of, but I can imagine whatever it is, Akercocke would be very successful at it.

I know this isn't part of this blog, but here's the full line up I'd like to see at any festival (in no particular order) (sorry, had to do it!):

Emperor
Immortal
Judas Priest
Tool
Nevermore
Behemoth
Hypocrisy
Akercocke
My Dying Bride
Swallow the Sun
Virgin Black
Agalloch
Dream Theater
Darkwater
Eis
Wintersun
Marduk
Gorgoroth
Carach Angren
Anorexia Nervosa
Keep of Kalessin
Nile
Moonsorrow
Kamelot
Katatonia
Novembre
Daylight Dies
Obscura
Cynic
Kalisia
Augury
Devin Townsend
Evergrey
Morbid Angel
and of course Apothys for good measure (yeah yeah)
Întunecatul - 24.06.2010 at 12:26  
Opening act: Motorhead - good ol' rock'n'roll
Warm-up : In Flames (with just three songs from the new In Flames:Alias,Take this life and Reroute to remain)

I'm surprised how many of you suggest bands they can see live any day anyway. Here's your chance to decide upon a lineup that kills everything that's ever been there and yet people come up with such rare gems as Arch Enemy, Children Of Bodom, Iron Maiden, Nightwish and Ensiferum.

Come on people, you can resurrect the dead and reunite bands here.

PANTERA AND DEATH!!!
Abattoir - 27.06.2010 at 20:01  
Quite diverse line-up, if you look on different classification of genres but still...


Opening act - AC/DC (unusual for start you might think, but hey anything is possible )

Warm-up - Sick of It All (hardcore band, which would certanily blow you away)

Direct Support Act - Kreator (there can't be festival without some genuine thrash metal)

Headliner - Sentenced (this would be definitely a mesmerizing and memorable show)

After Party - Saturnus (some beautiful sad after party for the conclusion)
swatata - 28.06.2010 at 17:05  
Opening Act-Def Leppard
Warm Up-Judas Priest
Direct Support-Iron Maiden
Headliner-Running Wild
After Party-Jimi Hendrix

Once again, that's true for you in the nether lands. Nevermore play once or twice every five years in France, so I don't even know if they ever played in Portugal.
But yeah, I'd rather see bands like, say, Death, mentioned more often.
Zombie - 29.06.2010 at 02:58  
My very own "Hellfest" would be a Thrash/Death one, starting off with:


OPENING ACT - NERVECELL | The Death metal veterans from Dubai, United Arab Emirates would definitely be my opening act; they're the only band among the line-up that i had actually attended a concert to, and they FUCKING kick ass. they were successful openers to lots of great bands, and i'd want to spice things up with a strong opening act.

WARM-UP - LAAZ ROCKIT | Next band would be Laaz Rockit, speeding things up and turning things more thrashy, while maintaining the technicality introduced by the previous Nervecell, and laaz remains one of my all-time favs.

DIRECT SUPPORT ACT - MORBID ANGEL | I'm dying to see morbid angel live, so, that's a pretty damn good reason to be in my line-up , also, they're the perfect thrash/death blend band out-there.. and possibly the greatest death metal band ever !

HEADLINER - KREATOR | My current favorite band, True Thrash Metal, with a melodic kick to it, my kind of thrash ! the German legends would break the silence of the night with Mille's vocals, Sami's beautiful solos, and Ventor's thunder-like drums.

AFTER PARTY - TESTAMENT | Testament would play their classics; like ALL of the legacy album ending with "the legacy" track itself to soothe things down at the end of a loud night packed with extreme thrash and death metal at its finest.


you're all invited to my show, free of charge... just bring your own booze and bring me some too !!

Actually of all the bands I mentioned, only DT plays regularly in Portugal. Nevermore hasn't played here in years, Riverside only played here once. In Mourning never played here. So, no, I can't see those bands whenever I want.

I guess that was supposed to be our dream Festival?
Dark Cornatus - 30.06.2010 at 16:57

It's a cool concept to resurrect the dead or reunite a band, but I'm personally not interested in putting together a line up that will never happen. I'm comfortable with never seeing Death or the original line up of Led Zeppelin in their prime. I'm more interested in a possible, well-matched line up that has never been put together in one night in a particular order. That's what really gets me excited and that's why I picked the lineup I did.
MétalNoir - 02.07.2010 at 17:54  
FESTIVAL'S TITLE: FRED'S WORLDWIDE PAGANFEST (In your face, this is MY party)
LOCATION: On the top of Mont-Tremblant
CONCEPT: I'm a folk fan, yeah, it's a trend blah blah blah, I don't give a shit, I've always been into folk, folk rock and folk metal and I want an all-folk festival!!! Each band represents a continent or region.

OPENING ACT - AMERICA - MOONLYGHT
The best canadian band along with Unexpect, and I'll use my reuniting card to see them live just once :'( Of course they'll open the whole shit with "The Sceptic Traveller", and they'll play an encore for "The Autum's Freezing Harmony"!

WARM-UP - EASTERN EUROPE - DALRIADA
After the progressive epics of Moonlyght, Dalriada will bring a technical power metally touch to the fest.

SUPPORT - MIDDLE EAST - MELECHESH
How can you go through a pagan festival without a sumerian band like Melechesh? The eastern beats will drive us all crazy before the headline kicks in!

HEADLINE - WESTERN EUROPE - EQUILIBRIUM
My fav band! They'll get Helge and Manu back and kick our asses with fast catchy and epic metal just as I like! And this will be their very first North American concert (FOR ME!)

AFTER PARTY - ASIA - CHTHONIC
To close the festival, the Far East's sensation will focus on their early stuff and infuse it with twice as much violin as they usually do! "Quasi Putrefaction" will end up this magnificient festival!

That's a choice I thought of making myself. By "their early stuff" I guess you mean everything including Seediq Bale? I could see that happen. In fact I would love to seem them play the whole album. It's by far their best so far.

I never considered them to be a dutch band since they originated from Israel, some of their members are Israeli and their music is deeply oriental. Calling them dutch is like calling Tvangeste canadian...

Damn... five bands only >:

Opening: Shade Empire
Only playing material from the first two albums. This is some Symphonic / Industrial Black Metal aka synth fest >:D

Warm-Up: Heaven Shall Burn
Blazing death infused metalcore. Preferably songs from the latest album Invictus and Deaf To Our Prayers

Direct Support: Nightwish
I like Nightwish with Anette please. The most mainstream thing here

Headliner: Arcturus
Need Garm & Vortex here

Afterparty: Yearning
Summons Juhani from his grave for some amazing Atmospheric Doom >:

Opening act: Cryonic Temple
-A sixty minute set by this fairly unknown but very good power metal band would be a great way to kick DungeonMaster Fest 2010 into gear.
Warm-up: Sabaton
-A 120-minute militaristic party by these power metal gods would be an amazing way to REALLY get the Fest started, especially with insane pyrotechnics and Purple Heart as a soft and delicate closer for their act.
Direct Support: Symphony X
-Any quiet tones set by the only moderately heavy Purple Heart would be instantly wiped away as Symphony X launches into the 20-minute plus epic The Odyssey right after the bat, kicking off their 120-minute set and dropping jaws with wonder.
Headliner: Demons & Wizards
- This amazing combo of Iced Earth's Jon and Blind Guardian's Hansi would headiline DungeonMaster Fest 2010, playing both of their full albums and slightly modified versions of their two root band's most popular songs in an epic 200-minute set.
After Party: Trans-Siberian Orchestra
- I've seen these guys twice, and both times I've been left with a simply amazing feeling of having witnessed one of the earth's grandest shows. Playing the concept album of Beethoven's Last Night out in full, including story interludes, would be a great way to wind-down after the awesome encore of Demon's And Wizards (Fiddler On The Green, of course).

I can't limit myself to just one festival. A second awesome festival I'd love to see:


WodenFest

Opening Act: Einherjer
-45 minute set to get things started loud and heavy (by my standards, anyways) with a band who I've only heard a little of but become thunderstruck by.
Warm-Up: Falconer
-A 90 minute set of material from Falconer, Chapters From A Vale Forlorn. and Among Beggars And Thieves should inject some energy into the crowd, those of whom haven't been deafened by Einherjer.
Direct Support: Ensiferum
-A 120-minute set, where they play the entirety of Victory Songs (my favorite album by them) before diverging into their other stuff. Who wouldn't love to see this amazing extreme folk metal band?
Headliner: Amon Amarth
- A monstruous 180-minute set. 3 hours with this band to rule all bands? It makes me cry with joy to think about it.
After Party: Turisas
- A 60-minute set by Turisas. What better to close the festival then a rousing, extended version of Rasputin with massive audience participation? And all the members of the previous bands onstage for the chorus?

I'm surprised how many of you suggest bands they can see live any day anyway. Here's your chance to decide upon a lineup that kills everything that's ever been there and yet people come up with such rare gems as Arch Enemy, Children Of Bodom, Iron Maiden, Nightwish and Ensiferum.



I was thinking the exact same thing.


Am,first see from which county I am and after that you can say what you said.COB,Ensiferum,Arch Enemy never came to Romania...never ever ...so your argument is invalid
