This is the worst lineup this festival has ever had... which is a bit odd. I thought the point was to get better as time went by.

You're near enough the only person who thinks that. Most people are ecstatic to have Riverside, JOP, IE and Iron Savior together.

For my money it's missing a Primal Fear or a Blind Guardian but still, I'd never be making the trip to Atlanta anyway.

29/4 COC
3/5 Chris Cornell
7/5 Bryan Adams
12/5 Gov't Mule
25/5 Zakk Wylde

If I compare this year to the years of past:

2006: Jorn, Evergrey, Circle II Circle, Thunderstone, Vision Divine, Savage Circus, etc
2004: Weapons of Mass Destruction (Savatage reunion), Edguy, Kamelot, Brainstorm, Tad Morose, etc
2002: Blind Guardian, Gamma Ray, Edguy, Angra, Silent Force, etc

or even the other years of the past...

I think this year is a signifigant dissapointment. I love JOP, but getting them on that bill is no accomplishment. They're located in Florida anyway.

True, this year doesn't have alot of "known" bands, but I really feel that Amorphis and the first announced show for Iced Earth w/ Barlow make up for it (Even if it doesn't end up being the first show, though I wouldn't doubt it - I mean, he IS still a cop and they will be busy recording the new IE for a portion of this year anyways). I'm a little disappointed at Astral Doors having to drop off and be replaced by Rob Rock (I was looking forward to AD), but since they're confirmed for 2009, it's fine.

Iron Savior, Riverside, JOP, Andromeda, Volbeat, Elvenking...

I'm sure I'll be down there, you better believe it. This is probably the most diverse lineup Glenn's ever put together.

Amorphis is the second headliner.

This festival is now a lot better than I thought it would be. I can only hope this means more U.S. dates for Amorphis (if they're finally here, they better fucking do it).
