In anticipation of what should be the best metal festival on the face of the planet my wife, our friends and myself have bought tickets to WOA 2014. It's not our first time, the last one was in 2010 and we had the time of our lives. Now... the band line-up for this 25th Anniversary should be pretty amazing one should think, right? So what the fuck is up? This advent calendar thing is supposed to be fun, but after 20 days opening doors it just keeps on getting more and more depressing. Ok, we've got some great bands confirmed and since this is Wacken we keep our hopes up but I'm starting to get worried, this is not what we expected for Wacken's happy 25th. In contrast if you look at the 2014 Hellfest line-up it's amazing. Seriously, if this does't change we're refunding our tickets and heading over to France instead this summer. Right now there are too many "unknown" bands on one hand and on the other a whole bunch of bands where the lead vocalist is ready for the nursing home (or we've seen them 1000 times allready in their better years). I'm not going to make of list of this and that band is missing... you know what the fuck I'm talking about here, the word is getting around. If all this is part of a "surprise" marketing stunt, it's not funny anymore.
