    Well me and my gf are all paid up. Way looking forward to it. But I do worry about a cancellation as well. At least for me 70000 tons line up isn't a must go to scenario at least as of now. Just announce some bands already or even get some of the bands that are on board to play some special sets or something maybe that could help the process.

    Indeed. Kinda sad it isn't full yet! But I'm guessing once announcements pick up for it again so will bookings. If not, we should get upgrades!

    Anyone else get the feeling all the bands are already booked and all this "I want this band" is essentially pointless ????

    Like everyone else, I'm really excited about and wondering who the next bands announced will be. Having said that, I'm thrilled with the bands booked so far (both the bands I know and love well *and* the bands that are totally new to me), and I'm gonna be really busy as it is!

    Btw, how have some of you managed to exceed the sig character limit? I'd like to add more bands to my wishlist, but what I've got now is almost to the limit it seems.

    what are some of the bands you've checked out for Barge that you like and did not know before, Laura? i still have yet to check out Solstafir.

    Loudblast and Artillery were bands i hadn't heard much either. and i'll be all raging at the Soilwork sets even if everyone else claims to hate them now!

    Sorry for the late reply - I was kinda tied up this afternoon at work. Although there are still some more bands I need to check out - the three (whose music I didn't know at all before) that I have so far are Rotting Christ, Solstafir, & Holy Moses.

    Rotting Christ - I bought RC's Theogonia from 2007 a few days ago....I know they've got a ton of recordings, but based on some overall reviews, that one seemed like a good one to start with. I'm not up to writing a full-blown review at the moment having just listened to it once....but I like the fact that they seem to bring something unique to the genres they are considered part of. There is some cool middle-eastern vibe here and there - sorry that I can't name a song title - anyway...I like!! Especially like Sakis' vocals too!

    Holy Moses - Re Solstafir and Holy Moses, I've only youtubed a bit so far. I think the big appeal of Holy Moses for me is the bad-ass female lead singer Sabina (haha - who is just a few years younger than I am :beerbang: ) ; I think Tom (Scott) Cruise mentioned that he had met her and said she was cool. I think it would be really fun to meet and chat with her as well...kind of like when I met Doro. I don't remember if I ever fessed up to this here or not, but one of my recurrimg top three fantasies since I was a teenager was/is to be a "rock star." :P :cool: :headbanger: Well, that ain't gonna happen but I really admire (and am envious of) the relatively few women who have made it and are. (and I'm tangentially including you Rhia, because you've been in bands and to me that is like the coolest thing ever!!) Here are Sabina & Doro doing Too Drunk to Fuck :P :headbanger: *love this* http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4LH3QS-iBSw

    Solstafir - the few videos I've watched are really cool - don't know how they made it on an "extreme metal cruise" because they seem anything but (I don't even know what to call them) - but I don't care - they strike me as quite unique which is what I'm always seeking. I really dig this song and video - Fjara. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmGdSOhBx8E Haven't bought any recordings yet - anyone out there have any suggestions?

    The bands that I DO know well, love, and/or I have at least seen before and have some familarity with are: BEHEMOTH (!!!), ENSLAVED (!!!), AT THE GATES (!!!), NAPALM DEATH (!!!), PARADISE LOST (!!!), MUNICPAL WASTE (!!!), Belphegor, Hypocrisy, Kampfar, Krisuin, Moonspell, Sanctuary, Sepultura, and Sodom.

    So that leaves the following who I don't know and need to check out: Artillery, CoC, Hackneyed, Loudblast, Morgoth, Possessed, Sacred Reich, Six Feet Under, and Soilwork. Shit - that is a lot of bands - I better get on the stick - pronto!!

    Skip Six Feet Under. You've been warned. :lol:

    Artillery is the best thrash band on the planet to me (if you like thrash), Morgoth are old school death metal, and Loudblast is a mix of old school death metal and now death.thrash. Those 3 bands, along with At the Gates are the main draws for me :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    you ever seen Soilwork live?

    I liked them fine on album, more then fine actually.

    But every time I've seen them live the singing has been wrong, when he switch between growl and clear singing the clear parts have always always always just dissapeared, not sure if the singer can't actually make it live or if they constantly work with a shitty sound guy.
    I'll go check them out again, but if they for the first two songs loose the clear singing parst, I'll be off, have spent way to many times watching Soilwork with only half the singing coming through :(

    Too bad, for after several shitty live experiences I don't find myself wanting to listen to their albums any longer, for whatever reason. I do have it in my ne play list and hear it every now and then.

    I loved their first 2 cds, and the first time I saw them was awesome... but every cd after Chainheart Machine has been progressively worse and each time after the first time I saw them they've been terrible... last time I saw them I think their performance gave people AIDs

    Skip Six Feet Under. You've been warned. :lol:

    Artillery is the best thrash band on the planet to me (if you like thrash), Morgoth are old school death metal, and Loudblast is a mix of old school death metal and now death.thrash. Those 3 bands, along with At the Gates are the main draws for me :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:


    Since you're a big fan of Artillery, Morgoth, & Loudblast - what album would you recommend that represents say "classic" Artillery? I've got a long work weekend ahead (haha - starting in about 10 minutes), so would like to listen to/buy something new. :cheers:

    I love Artillery & Soilwork, well their earlier albums, like Still bath suicide & Natural born chaos. Morgoth is great as well, you will see me there, same fo CoC & Sacred Reich. Actually I will be so happy to see Sacred Reich live first time.
    During Hockneyed and Six Feet I will eat or drink or nap or whatever else :mrgreen:

    Sorry I know this question was posed to Kevin but I think you're going to love Artillery Laura! My favorite of their albums that I think you would really enjoy is "My Blood" :shred:

    ^^^ thanks Mal & Marlo for the suggestions. :cheers: Didn't expect Kev to answer since he's sadly not here much anymore, yet rather usually "out to lunch" on FB. :lol: (and being as hilarious as ever *there*...)

    For me, Soilwork died after Natural Born Chaos. They had a little life on Stabbing the Drama, but have been dead since. I will be at both sets just hoping for Chainheart and Predator's Portrait tracks. I give them massive credit for Natural Born Chaos as that is a landmark release since nobody has really ever done anything like that before. Far more interesting than their copy/paste At The Gates stuff. (even if my stubborness likes that more)

    and yes, i've seen them live twice, and they were not as good as I had hoped either time. being the RAGING optimist that i am, i will hope they do old stuff and actually play well!

    You good w/ Natural Born Chaos or are you too tru?

    I've seen them live at least 3 times and they fucking rock :lol: What is this about them being bad live? I'd be interested in whom you feel are GREAT LIVE. Iron Maiden / Slayer / Lamb of God / GWAR / Mastodon? Agreed.

    haha i LIKE what i LIKE, not based on classification and if something is "metal". that being said, i am pretty hit and miss with that album. some tracks just don't do anything for me but others are pretty cool, like Follow the Hollow and Black Star Deceiver. It's better than Figure No Five!!! I do like Stabbing the Drama, Sworn to a Great Divide, and Panic Broadcast. I think the last 3 have gotten better and better. Anyway i would consider myself a big fan of the band!

    Predator's Portrait is my favorite though. The guitar solo in Structure Divine is one of the best metal guitar solos I know of, it's perfect to my ears.

    i am far from the only one who doesn't think Soilwork is that good live. In fact that's the biggest complaint of anyone I know who is into them. They have come across as sloppy and not dynamic.

    So who's good live, Maiden, Overkill, Gojira, Devin Townsend, Cynic, Morbid Angel, Immolation. I have seen Slayer be pretty bad live....but they're always FUN, so i'll let their sloppiness ride.

    Yeah I did that Between the Buried and Me / Cynic / Devin Townsend gig and were all phenomenal. I love that BTBAM were giving Cynic and DT added exposure. I'm a Megadeth/Slayer die hard so they can no wrong for me. Seeing Slayer tomorrow at Rockstar Mayhem. Finally goign to show up late since High On Fire dropped the tour. Getting Anthrax / As I Lay Dying / Motorhead / Slayer straight so I'll be happy. Haven't seen Slipknot since they were on like Ozzfest 99 so that'll be interesting.

    Regarding Soilwork:

    My Album Rankings:
    Predator's Portrait
    NBC
    Chainheart Machine
    Stabbing the Drama
    Steelbath Suicide
    Figure Number Five
    Panic Broadcast
    Sworn To A Great Divide

    Not into Sworn at all. No Wichers = No Soilwork for me :)

    You misspelled something, as I've got no other explanation to the word "pretty" in your sentence :D - Slayer is ALWAYS ULTRA BRÜTAL TORTURE KILLING LIVE :shred:

    I would do anything Tom Araya would tell me to do without question. He has that kind of power over me. Motherfucker TAUGHT ME how to headbang.

    If Kerry King tells the press your band sucks or that you suck, I instantly agree with him.

    I may have mentioned this before... and I may be sticking my head into the shark tank with this one... but as far as Slayer is concerned: I just don't get it. I don't see the appeal. I consider myself pretty open-minded when it comes to checking out bands.. and I had certainly given slayer a chance (Bought a few albums, learned to play a few songs), but all of that was dashed away when I saw them live. Sloppy, muddy, and with a collective sour attitude on stage to boot. Yet these guys are worshipped. Someone explain what about them makes you guys get wet'n'giggly. I'm not being condescending, I'm legitimately curious because maybe I am just missing something.
