As you may already know, I am from California. I used to live in Switzerland (went to High School there) so I am no stranger to the Old World. Anyhow, just wondering if any of my American bretheren will be attending Wacken. If so maybe we can meet up and share stories how metal does not exist in the USA so we must travel to the other side of this forsaken planet to get our fix. At least in California. I think the Eastern USA has it a bit better than us out by the Pacific.
