so girugamesh are a favoured band of mine. and i'm very proud that they've made it to wacken. but i have to say i'm worried about them. girugamesh are a japanese rock band - not usually the kind of thing that wacken books. they're heavy enough, but do you think people will be hostile to them? it would really be better for everyone if there was a festival featuring these kinds of bands, because right now alot of j-rock bands are trying to make it over in the west. j-rock is an odd genre, that takes some getting used to. girugamesh have been asking their fans about wacken. they're excited to play it because they like most of the other bands playing, but they don't know what to expect from the people there. do you think people will bottle them, etc? will they like them? or will they be passive?
