5 - Freedom Call - Hard to see them lose that spot but a handful of bands still could do it
4 - Alestorm - Yarr!
4 - Insomnium - I really hope to be able to catch both their sets this time
4 - Korpiklaani - Party Metal!
4 - Sabaton - Would be the 5 if it wasn't for Freedom Call
3 - Dark Tranquillity - Not my favorite Melodic Death band but will most likely see both sets anyway
3 - Masterplan - Don't own an album but really liked them live
3 - Rhapsody - Loved them as a kid, second set depends on how good the first one will be
2 - Aeternam - Listened to some songs, they seem to be alright
2 - Die Apokalyptischen Reiter - Always fun to watch, not a priority
2 - In Extremo - Seen them way too often, one set will be enough
2 - Primal Fear - Although there can never be enough Power Metal this will be another 1-setter
2 - Samael - Loving Eternal, second set really depends on what they play
2 - Sonata Arctica - Solid live band, one set will be enough
2 - Swallow The Sun - A little too doomy for my liking but will check at least one set
2 - Wolfchant - Never seen them live, might like them might not
1 - Goatwhore - Might check some songs if nothing else is happening
1 - Gyze - I did like their riffs but the singer is horrible
1 - Kreator - Not a fan of the genre but they are decent live. Will chill in the yakuzi if they get a pool deck set
1 - October Tide - Doom usually bores me to death (heh) but I'll give them a chance if I can
1 - Obscura - Might catch a song or two
1 - Sepultura - 15 years ago this might have been my 5
0 - Benediction - Listened to "I Bow To None". Made me laugh... not in the good way
0 - Benighted - Meh
0 - Cannibal Corpse - Meh
0 - Enslaved - Didn't like the songs I listened to
0 - Messhugah - Nope
0 - Metal Church - Saw them last time they were onbroad, wasn't impressed
0 - Necrophobic - Nope
0 - Septicflesh - Nope
0 - Witchery - Whatever
0 - Wolfheart - Saw them at Wacken, awful
5 - 2 setter, I don't give a fuck who it conflicts with, everyone else can fuck off (only for 1 band)
4 - 2 setter, no matter what (unless conflicts with other 4's happen) - similar to '2'
3 - 1 set for sure, second one more than likely but depends on overlappings - similar to '1/2'
2 - 1 set for sure, second one if nothing else interesting is happening - similar to '1'
1 - 1 set only if nothing else interesting is happening - similar to '0/1'
0 - 0 sets, not interested at all - similar to '0' (but might pass by to see how they play)
