Well on one hand seeing how I'm not into metal or hardcore I shouldn't complain that I pretty much don't like any of the bands playing right? The only reason I feel my complaints are warranted is because of the potential this festival has, I'm never going to remember all the bands but since 08 Cannibal, Hatebreed, Faceless, AtB, PsyOpus, and a bunch of other really good bands have played. Who's good this year? Gaza.
You haters need to get out. The lineup is really balanced for the most part. It isn't full of "shitty metalcore bands" or "the Hot Topic shirt rack" It's a popular festival, so of course they are going to get bands that are pretty popular. I don't know why some people are expecting them to get some really obscure bands to headline this shit. Personally I think the Sunday lineup sucks for the most part, but Friday and Saturday both have awesome lineups.
This fucking fest gets worse and worse every year, I swear. Just rename it "A ton of awful metalcore bands, a few bad overrated death metal bands, and 2-3 good bands that are famous enough for the poseurs who organize this to recognize fest" because that's what it is.
I hate that when bands come through MA on tour in the spring they always play this fucking shit festival. I would kill to see Periphery live, just not for $45 for about 40 min with no other worthwhile band playing, except maybe PtH who I don't really care for. Nile, Fleshgod, Hour of Penance, The Contortionist, Volumes, and Structures would all be rad, too. Too bad they're separated over the three days.
Most of the bands on this fest aren't my bag, but I think it's cool that the line-up's kind of a mixed bag. After all, it's the "Metal and Hardcore" fest not the "Bands That IMNs Like" fest. Also, fuck yeah at Incendiary being on this. There will be mosh.
not sure if wading through all the terrible bands is worth a handful of good ones  I wish the Nile and Fleshgod tours were playing by themselves, not on this, because I don't want to pay the expensive ticket price for maybe 7 or 8 out of 20 bands being worthwhile
Day 1 and 2 are STAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACKED! I really hope day 2 headliner is something awesome like Converge or Pig Destroyer, but there's rumors flying around that All that remains might be the headliner, which would completely fucking blow.
Hopefully Overkill doesn't cancel.....again. Aside from Day 3, this line up looks alright. I mean I like Killswitch and all, buut the other bands aren't worth it. Days 1 and 2 look pretty sweet though. I might go, who knows.
