Hmmm.

Not too fussed so far. Graspop was great this year, and I want to go again, but there better be more bands announced that I like.

Alestorm, Behemoth and My Dying Bride are the big ones for me so far, since I don't think Sepultura will be nearly as good without Max

Not a fan of Immortal but I always think I should have at least checked them out when I went in 2008.

I'm a big fan of Sepultura and think alot of the stuff they've done with Derrick Green is just as good as the Max stuff. There's a fair few songs with Max that I skip but I find Derrick's material is easier to listen to at times. Plus "A-Lex" was f***ing incredible and they're still a great live band even if you're not a fan.
