Now I don't really know much and correct me if I'm wrong but I think As I Lay Dying doesn't really fit in

It's okay, Hatebreed will get boo'd off stage. AILD is tolerable. . .and maybe KSE will be too busy with side projects to show up?

More Brutal? Carcass has any and all claims to Wacken's "Brutal" factor.

Ok guys, it's clear that next years Wacken is going to be so f***ing awesome they've had to bring in some sh** bands to stop general rioting and sh** going down because of the greatness.

Now Playing: Sepultura - "Lobotomy"

Haha. Very nice Cynic. Like I've said before, not even Hatebreed can ruin the epic return of ATG and Carcass.

Normally, I would absolutely agree with all that has been said about AILD, but the album that just came out for them was amazing. This band has improved a hundredfold; with some exceptions, this band has finally made the leap from hardcore/emo to the ranks of actually decent Metal. So perhaps they might not be all that bad here. KSE however, still sucks as a band. At least I can punch their fans while I mosh to At the Gates.

Now Playing: Sworn Enemy - "We Hate"
