I second that very much, I really want to see them! The Dream Theater set was fine as well, lots of ol' goodies.

No surprise in the slightest.

Its amazing how much a festival's line up can suck compared to a year before. Last year this festival had Iron Maiden and Judas Priest.

And this year it had Heaven & Hell, Dream Theater, Queensryche, Edguy, Saxon (although their bus broke down and they cancelled), Down, Blind Guardian... I don't see a problem.

It was also in a smaller venue (last year was Arena Parc Nord in Bologna), and only two days instead of three. So by definition there'll be less money to spend on bands... and they still got four headliners.

I see .. the smaller venue does explain the difference in the lineup. Still some good bands for sure.

Also don't forget that after Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Slayer, Testament, Carcass and Iced Earth last year the rest of the line-up was pretty lame.

Yngwie Malmsteen and Obituary are cool, but other than that...

This year also had: Voivod, Carcass, Lauren Harris, Cynic, Black Dahlia Murder, Extrema, Mastodon, Backyard Babies, Lita Ford, Tesla, Napalm Death and Static-X.

Total number of bands was 25 both years, too.

Blind Guardian
This Will Never End
Traveller In Time
Turn The Page
Sacred
Goodbye My Friend
Blood Tears

I want to see these songs. God damn I want to see these songs. Particularly Traveler, Turn the Page, and Blood Tears. I could see some people being pissed about this set lacking a lot of more popular BG tracks, but nevertheless I think it's pretty awesome.

It seemed to go over pretty well. Lots of singing to 'Goodbye My Friend' and 'Blood Tears', as well the obvious ones like 'Valhalla' and 'Imaginations From The Other Side'.

I was gonna say the same thing. I like Slipknot but it's Fuckin Dream Theater there's only a handful of acts that should headline over them and Slipknot deffinately isn't one of them

Lol. Headline bands are all about status and fanbase, not how much you like them. Slipknot have sold way more records and have far more fans than Dream Theater. Sad, but true.

I like Slipknot too, for the record.

The one which should be contested is Motley Crue headlining about Heaven & Hell.

However, these aren't really contentions. The event basically had four headliners, each getting 90 minutes. The festival wasn't sold as Motley Crue, Slipknot and the rest. It was sold as Motley Crue, Heaven & Hell, Dream Theater, Slipknot and the rest.

I know it's always based on who sells more more but there's something about Slipknot going on after DT that just doesn't sit right with me. The same goes for Motley Crue following HNH

A lot of people are with you on this. Including Bill Steer from Carcass. He used this fact to prove their isn't a God while on stage yesterday.

Me too. I'm glad that Voices is back in there but as the tour goes on you gotta wonder what old stuff they'll drop in order to get more new stuff in. They have to play A Nightmare To Remember, The Shattered Fortress and The Count Of Tuscany at some point. Those songs are just too good to not make it in.

I'm expecting them to drop this set (which I've now seen them play twice) after they're done playing European Festivals and do a more 'Black Clouds & Silver Linings'-heavy set for the Progressive Nation tours.
