Okay, if I go to this, Behemoth, Slayer, and Whitechapel better be the first ones playing so I don't have to listen to the rest of the bill.

Ya i thought this was a done deal early this year when they announced the tour but oh well, ive seen them twice and they were good both times so will be ready to see them...gotta say this years mainstage compared to last year for me is only a slight upgrade, and thats because of slayer .slipknot last year in so cal gave an ordinary performance, wasnt one of their best, however say what you want about disturbed but i thought they were really good live...Corpse is my headliner for this

Half awesome, half rubbish. Sort of defines the split in the metal community.

The only band on the bill I actually dislike is Cannibal Corpse. Whitechapel and JFAC are decent but rather monotonous. I'm super-stoked about seeing Manson for the first time and getting to see Trivium and God Forbid play their newer material.

I say go with Demigod, but Satanica or Thelema.6 certainly wouldn't be bad starts either.

Haha, thanks Wiggles. Even I still can't help giggling every time I see it.
Glad to be of help KanadianKorn, you can't go wrong with that album. I remember seeing the Slaves Shall Serve video for the first time when I was beginning to get into metal, and I was actually a bit disturbed by it. All I thought was, ''whoa, these guys are really f***ing evil". Haha. I was so sheltered.

I remember the first time I heard Behemoth, I saw the video for "Conquer All" and I knew that that was the kind of music I'd f*ck with from then on.

^He would also demand ownership of your parents and grandparents, so that they can no longer spawn any more bloodlines that might possibly steal his "ideas". And he would get it too. all he has to do is walk up to the jury and spit blood out of his mouth and shoot fire out of his a$$ and the crowd goes wild and the case goes to him. :P

I didn thear behemoth unitl I saw them at Ozzfest. I had no idea what the f*** they were doing, or what the f*** I was hearing, but it was awesome. I went home and went straight o their myspace. All i remeber was listening ot the song Prometherion and thinking "wow, that's a bit too much for me right now. Went back a few months later(when my musical taste expanded beyond sh**ty metalcore and lamb of god) and then suddenly it was the coolest thing I had ever heard. been a diehard ever since, shouting their names from the rooftops and bothering innocent pedestrians everywhere with my penchant for playing this band as loud as possible whenever possible.

Now Playing: Mastodon- Oblivion
