Well Diamond Plate is fairly decent thrash. Not my taste, but good nonetheless.

But yeah, I'm in the same boat. I've already seen Belphegor, and although their live show was fun to watch, the music just doesnt really do it for me. They're like a less-quality slightly-more-black metal version of Behemoth. Aborted could be cool, since Ive never seen them. Blackguard Ive only heard live, never studio, but they sounded like a black metal dragonforce live. And if I remember what they sound liek, I remember Sytem Divide's music sounded like crap to me, though I might be confusing them with someone else.

All in all, yeah, there should be more thrash or heavy death metal on this bill, these bands just dont match the atmosphere that Overkill brings.

Even with all that complaining abotu the lineup, I might still go to this because...Overkill.
