Looks like sharon starting to get a little greedy. No anthrax, Maiden leaves early..This years line up is sub-par to begin with. The time is ripe 4 a new metal fest to take ozz fest place

first, all of you who say mudvayne sucks cna go f*** yourselves. mudvayne f***ing rule and they kick the old anthrax's lineup's ass. plus the new lineup for anthrax with jon bush singing is so much better than the "among the living" ineup.

i think that there missing the big altmetal acts that ozzfest usually has. BLS,shadows fall,and rob zombie are there but they need SOAD or disturbed or something along that line.

I would have liked to see Slipknot fill the spot. I saw them in Hartford the opening night of the Subliminal Verses Tour, going on now, and it was one of the best shows I have ever seen. Shadows Fall and Lamb of God opened, it was an excellent show.

RYKNOW, have you ever seen Mudvayne live? I bought and listened to their albums, and I thougth they were pretty good. But then I saw them live, and I was VERY disappointed. I thought they did not put on a good performance at all, the vocals were horrible, the guitars were sloppy, and the drums were blah. I guess I will see this summer if they have gotten any better, but from past experience, I would not want to see them live again.

Aborted_Fetus is right! I have all mudvayne albums cause they are pretty dam good. But I saw them live in a large arena and they sucked real bad. The bass and drums were right on, but the singer was half a$$ and the guitars suck real bad. I saw them when they went on that tour this year where they performed in little clubs and they were great! I guess it's just better to see them in front of a small crowd. Anyways their new album sucks!

This is awesome. Mudvayne rocks and the new album is phenomenal. Sounds more like L.D.50 than the last album.
