First day has Dying Fetus, Arsis, Decrepit Birth, Cattle Decapitation, Misery Index and Gaza. Awesome.

2nd day has all shitty bands except for maybe Earth Crisis and The Faceless.. Wow.

Note: This is the same California metal fest that has Testament + Flotsam and Jetsam in one day. :I

True story: When I saw Behemoth here when Job for a Cowboy (also Gojira :D ) opened for him, I heard a guy say "Job for a Cowboy are my favorite death metal band!"

:barf:

hmm i wish Day 1 had a better headliner. i'm not too stoked for Fear Factory. i am pretty stoked for Arsis, Whitechapel, Job For a Cowboy, Dying Fetus, and Decrepit Birth. and i am interested in seeing Cattle Decapitation, maybe it will change by opinion on them.

I'm still against them calling this the California Metalfest. It is not representative of the north.

Imagine a Bay Area metal festival :drool: High On Fire, Ludicra, Giant Squid, Worm Ouroboros, Saviours, Stormcrow, Ghoul, Asunder, Hammers of Misfortune, Slough Feg, the right people could really put together a helluva gig.

Arsis fucking rule, don't knock them. But yeah, aside from them I don't really like any bands on this fest

Not really a knock, I like them. It's just, if they were all I had to look forward to on a festival, I don't think I'd go.

Dying Fetus and Decrepit Birth can suck a fat dick for all I care. Cattle Decapitation I honestly haven't given much of a chance to, but I'm not really into grindcore.

Hey, I'm not saying DF and DB are gods or anything, but I've seen 'em both live, and glad I did. I own one or two CD's by each as well, so obviously I like them enough to buy their shit. I don't quite understand the hate, but hey - to each his own, I guess. :eyes:

Don't forget Grayceon. IntrOnaut are from L.A., but they're cool enough to get an invite to the party as well. Same with Dreaming Dead. ;)

EDIT: Oh, and fuck - if we're allowing bands from L.A., you'd better include a little band called Isis.

EDIT2: Neurosis headlines the whole fucking thing. I can't believe I forgot about them for a second there. :eyes:

Not 90% of death metal vocals. But that guy's. :D

Which is weird because I'm okay with Chris Barnes and my complaint with the DF guy is he's way too guttural. :eyes:

BTW, there are two of them who do vocals. The guttural ones are the ones that kinda suxorz, I agree.

Hey, at least I like DF, and I'm the one who stuck up for them in the first place. I just admit he's got a point, and unfortunately...it's pretty valid. :snivel:

DF still kicks ass, though. Dat Brad be crazy, man.

Agreed, but like Brad said - not him. He just sounds like he's trying way too hard to be a death metal cookie monster. Any idiot could do what he's doing - even me! (Now that's fucking sad. :() The fucker plays a mean guitar, though!

Zombie thread!

Just saw this at the top of the Dying Fetus MySpace page, and it reminded me why I do like them. It also reminded me of why Brad was right, but I still like them anyway. It also explains why Mankvill likes them so much in general. There is good, bad and ugly in here, but I prefer to focus on the good - because it's REALLY GOOD. Enjoy:

EDIT: Bottom line - if John Gallagher's vocals sounded more like Sean Beasley's, I'll bet all three of us would be on exactly the same page.
(Gallagher is the bald-headed lead guitar player - Beasley is the long-haired bass player.)

Woah. Woah.
You better not be speaking ill of Beherit...

Dying Fetus is cool, and the vox do not employ "whispering" so I don't know what you are talking about, and there are a lot worse brutal death vocalists out there. The only thing I would consider possibly bad in that is the disgusting amount of drum triggering going on.

Naw, he said something about a "whisper trick" for Dying Fetus and I had no idea wtf he was talking about.
