Seen Metallica thrice already, seen Slayer twice when they actually had a drummer, seen Anthrax before as well when they also had their drummer. Excuse me for not buying in to the same wishy-washy mainstream American bands that Soundwave always brings us. The fact that this is the biggest "metal" festival this country has is embarrassing.
As long as I can avoid the mainstages the racecourse shouldn't be too bad. I haven't been there since BDO 2008 so I'm guessing they should have at least done something about the dust problem (my white Battle of Los Angeles t-shirt came back a dull brown colour).
Second lineup is horrendous. Still bought my ticket but yeah... not a single band on there that I want to see. Puscifer doesn't appear to be happening either, and I'm shocked Baroness weren't on there. Fingers crossed they'll be on the final announcement
