Looks pretty good, I agree that sounds from the underground will probabley be just as good, and guarentee it will be cheaper for tickets and beer. Looking forward to seeing KsE play more than just 4 songs like they did 2 yrs ago. BLS was good last yr, I'm not a big Maiden fan though.

OZZFEST is for mainstreamers. Grab your oars, you're going to need them because there are a lot of people in that stream. And you are one of them. Or maybe its a bandwagon, in which case, I don't know what you use to get around in a wagon.... Sorry.

Ozzfest sucks still.

I don't see anything wrong with this line-up here. It looks f***ing great. Anyone who says otherwise needs to leave immediately.. And I like the vocals equally from both Jesse and Howard. But I think Howard puts on a better show live. So he doesn't suck.

Dr. metal. what kind of c*** sucking fa**ot are you. If I knew you personally. I would tie you down, rape your mother and make you watch, then slowly kill the rest of your family. BLS and maiden are the best bands alive.
