Not that I can go. If you think we’re rolling in it over here at the Gun Shy Assassin compound, you’re mistaken. Maybe if we actually lived in the U.K., we’d find our way there somehow. But we live an entire ocean away, and couldn’t swim across the Hudson River if we had to. But holy hell, is the lineup getting better and better.
Not only with The Big Four — Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax — be there, but now Opeth have signed on for the fest, along with the fucking amazing Mars Volta, Killing Joke, Watain, and The Black Dahlia Murder.
Maybe Trevor can sneak us into his suitcase or something?
Man, I want to go to this show. Its set for July 8 to July 10, and further boasts a lineup of Firewind, Alestorm, Arch Enemy, Gojira, Mastodon, The Sisters of Mercy, Slipknot, In Flames, Protest The Hero, Periphery, and Architects.
Oh, and Weezer is going to be there, too. And House of Pain and Limp Bizkit. And Volbeat. Man, you would think some of the bands on this bill wouldn’t want to expose their fans to bands like that.
