Nice list. Some good bands on there, pissed I didn't get to see Quo Vadis.

Personally:

1. Destruction
And then, a far way behind
2. Primordial
3. Darkane
4. Moonsorrow
5. Children of Bodom
6. Korpiklaani
7. Wolves in the Throne Room
8. Rotting Christ
9. Swallow the Sun
10. Municipal Waste

Haven't seen too many shows so far this year. But the Destruction show, when you include everything - the setlist, the INSANE crowd, the band's performance, the atmosphere in the venue, it's above and beyond the best show I've seen so far this year, and one of my favorites from the few years I've been going to shows.

Ghoul
Cattle Decapitation
Toxic Holocaust
General Surgery
3 Inches of Blood
Phobia
Toxic Holocaust
A Band of Orcs
Call the Paramedics
Gigan

I've only been to 5 shows this year, so at the end of the year I'm betting only half of those bands will still be on the list. Some of them were definitely a stretch.

Death Angel and Peligro Social are the best performances I've seen this year so far. YOB and Pentagram are coming up in the next couple weeks though
