I'm on the fence here, because this is a fairly expensive festival, and it clashes with my last day at work so it's going to be a bit of a hassle. If the schedule is good this year I might just go with a one day pass (if the right bands play the right dead, unlike last year when the scheduled DTP at the same time as At The Gates).

http://www.metaltown.se/line-up/


Opeth, Mayhem, Gojira and Primordial ar the ones I can imagine really wanting to see (though I honestly haven't listened too much to the latter two). But are there any other bands here that you think are worth it?

Are there any others you'd think are worth watching? Except for the top billings which I might watch for just the spectacle.

Dark Tranquillity, Machine Head, Mastodon are other notables. Depending on the price it would be worth it possibly.

You nignogs hate Nasum now?

Personally, I think I'd enjoy seeing Lamb of God and Trivium but I don't think anyone here would feel the same. Well... maybe Respawned and Binney.

Yeah, Skeletonwitch is always fun live. Opeth and Mayhem are always great.

Checked out Skeletonwitch, seemed pretty fun. Some really catchy guitar leads, and a good vocalist. As for nasum, I remember them winning grammys and shit (the Swedish variety) before I got into "extreme metal" and what I heard then I thought was utter shit, haven't given them a chance after that, but upon review I think they might have something to offer. Their spotify top five is pretty rocking.

That's it, if I can clear it with work I'm definitely going.

Mastodon and Kyuss would be worth going for, except Kyuss will probably play a fucking gay set like they did in Calgary so maybe not.

I thought they broke up after the dude died in the Tsunami.

Apparently they're doing a one off tour for their 20th anniversary.

I just read that on wikipedia, I didn't actually know.

Nasum is playing their final final shows this year. I believe the vocalist of Rotten Sound is filling in for the deceased member. I counted about 11 or 12 bands on the lineup I wouldn't mind seeing at all.

Most of the line-up is pretty boss.

I go to school in the town that Skeletonwitch is from and they always come back each year to put on a show or two. Always a fucking great time. Also, they have awesome shirts. I've bought two, and the most recent one I got is my favorite metal shirt that I own.

So now they've added Shining and Vildhjarta and I figure it's pretty much a no-brainer. Knowing that, I posted on my facebook wall if anyone else was thinking of going (festival on your own = meh). Little did I know that my girlfriends socially awkward, cerebral palsy sister was going to take that as an invitation. She asked something like "maybe, which bands are coming?". Seeing as how she likes 30 Seconds to Mars, Scar Symmetry and Therion I figured I could scare her off with a list consisting of Nasum, Mayhem, Shining etc. Bands I know she's never even heard of. Instead of saying "Oh, I don't know any of them" she replies with. "Oh, I might go if you dare to let me." and then she posts a status update on her wall about how she's going to metaltown with her brother-in-law...

Jesus, tap-dancing, retard-Christ…

Oh well, I'll just do the mature thing and, say I'm not going, order the ticket in secret then go anyway and claim I got a free ticket last minute.

Or just man up and go with her and put it in her while you're there.

I just ordered tickets. In Flames were just added to the line-up so I figure tickets are going to go fast. Plus I've never seen them, and regardless of how their output for the last few years have been, I've heard they still put on one of the best live-shows around.
