Yea, I'm sure a band named "Five Finger Death Punch" is going to be really hardcore. Oh wait, I just went to their myspace and they're just another lame rock band about teenage angst shit, but they call themselves thrash so I guess they don't even know their own genre. They also have Monster Energy Drink as one of their top friends. Yea, they suck.

lol you got your opinions on DragonForce from ED? Or was it 4chan? And just because they sing about stupid shit doesn't mean they suck. Does Rhapsody suck? Blind Guardian?

Number of lyrics don't always matter! Bang Camaro is one of my favorite bands ... here are the lyrics to their song 'Bang Camaro':


Bang!

Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!

BANG! Camaro!
BANG! Camaro!

BANG! Camaro!
BANG! Camaro!

Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Bang! Bang! (Camaro) Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!

BANG! Camaro!
BANG! Camaro!

And alot of their songs are ... lyrically lacking, check (most) of them here: http://lyricwiki.org/Bang_Camaro

They suck because they are contrived, simple, and most importantly, over-hyped. I wouldn't have much of a problem with them if people didn't think they were the epitome of metal.

I have seen not seen anyone overhype dragonforce outside of 4chan when they are bashing on them.

And everyone fucking nags on them for Inhuman Rampage. Holy Shit, Valley Of The Damned is a great Power Metal album.

What? A band whose t-shirts are in Hot Topic and whose songs are featured in videogames can make good music?!

Dragonforce overhyped? Perhaps but blaming Dragonforce because of what other think about them?

Me, I'll paraphrase the oracle from the matrix series: "go ahead and make up your damn mind. It's up to you."

I'd love to see Mastodon and Dragonforce live, so I'd probably leave Machine Head a bit early to try and get close seats for them. Abandon my seat once Disturbed gets on, stay around for 2-3 Slipknot songs, and then bail.
Machine Head is the 3rd stage headliner I believe, so hopefully the 3rd stage ends well before the main stage begins.
And does anyone know if it is going to be all general admission, or rediculously expensive seats like I fear?

I would expect the tickets to be $25-$30. No more than 40, though.

No, I just agree with their satire and don't care enough to spend the effort thinking of my own. The band just wanks their guitars really fast and sings lyrics that are so bad I actually feel embarrassed for them. They don't have one original idea in any of their music. But the worst part about dragonforce is that they actually take themselves seriously.


And no, Blind Guardian don't suck because they sing about fantasy, their lyrics are composed MUCH better than this alphabet soup dragonforce try to pass off. Not to mention bands like BG can actually write music that isn't just the same shit repeated over and over again.
