3 days & nothing but crap. Every year this fest (local to me) gets worse. But the majority of the "metal"heads in this region want to hear this crap.

Out of 70 bands, I'd only enjoy seeing 8 of them, which being, Lazarus A.D. 3 Inches Of Blood, Skeletonwitch, Dying Fetus, Biohazard, Wretched, A Life Once Lost, and Suffokate. Not real great odds being only a little over 10% of the lineup.

There is a bit of a lack of the bigger-name bands they've had in prior years. This is not to say I have an issue with local bands, but something just does not seem right about the lineup as it stands. However, I would like to point out that on the official site and the venue site, they list "and others" on every show. It is possible that they just have not announced all of the headliners for the shows yet. My hopes lie with this; as it is this is a very uninteresting fest for me as it stands.

I guess only time will tell if there is more here, but there certainly seem to be less headlining bands than there have been in prior years on that list.

Just plain awful, the thursday lineup simply terrible and there are only a few bands on the last day that are worth seeing.

Skinny jeans, v-neck tees, and emovers will be everywhere!!!

Its hilarious to see the people that actually like this lineup get all butt-hurt and call everyone names because they show disdain towards these bands. I love the interwebs!

naw lmao just random day u had cmted quite a bit on an article here on MU and one of ur posts said "np - tony danza tapdance extraganza " w/e the song was and i always thought that they were some screamo band or some sh** and ur np's are usually brutally heavy a$$ band lmao so i checked them out, and rlly liked their last album, danze III. and so i said fuggit, lemme check out btbam and i didn't rlly enjoy the 1st album, 2nd wasn't as bad, but alaska is awesome. colors and the great misdirect are awesome good but i cannot stand their long a$$ songs. some are good, "swim to the moon" (their longest song lol) being my least hated long song from them lmao but then again, i just got into them practically, so it'll take me some time.

seems like every time a festival is announced it's called crap by everyone on this site. that's kind of what the big fest/shows are about, a diverse lineup.

i just don't get it, especially since this site is called metalunderground and the majority of the bands are underground bands.

you'd think metal fans on a site like this would be more open minded and appreciate fests like this rather than say the family values tour featuring korn and flyleaf...

^^the majority are hardcore bands - look at the 2008 line up and you'd probably understand the reaction.
