    I wish there were more Black metal bands on the bill. On that stupid survey from last year, I mentioned "More BLACK" and do they listen? Nope!!!!!!!

    I wish there was less Black Metal actually.... hehe! There is something about seing Black Metal bands in full corpse paint playing in the sun.... Black Metal is better inside in some clubs.... EXODUS is the perfect festival band!

    Yep just like Overkill last year. Those US bands just kill! :)

    Are they done with the line up pretty much? Or will a few more confirmations show up in the coming weeks?

    DEW SCENTED!!!!!

    I think they're done mostly with the line up... a few more bands will be added, but not too many I guess!


    there's quite some people wanting more black metal! especially since Holger said that there will be more black metal than last year... but, well, what black metal bands are there? Necrophobic (black/death), Eisregen (uhm every "true" black metal head is gonna kill me now lol) and Mörk Gryning. that's 3 out of ca. 60.
    (at least I wouldn't know what other band in the billing would classify as black metal besides those three)



    hmmm the question about the top 5 bands why I am going is difficult... but I would say

    Necrophobic
    Macabre (woohoo a US band ;))
    Dying Fetus (woohoo another US band :D)
    Green Carnation
    Doro


    but there's lots of other bands I wanna see real bad too. Lock Up, Dickinson, Eisregen, Dornenreich, Pungent Stench, Hypocrisy, Amon Amarth, and Exodus of course!

    Just a small point, Lord Horb you seem to miss out one of the main black metal bands playing at Wacken...Immortal!!And then of course Children of Bodom who some will say are black metal and with other great bands like you mention dying fetus and necrophobic Wacken will be great. Not forgetting Cannibal Corpse, Hypocrisy, Blind Guardian, Raven, Amon Amarth, Wacken will fucking rule!

    hmm okay, I forgot to mention Immortal...
    though they're as much black metal as Dimmu Borgir *cough cough*...
    (I'm not saying they're bad bands but "black metal" is something different to me)

    what band I really forgot is Sabbat!

    about CoB.. I wouldn't say they're black metal... I think they're more melodic death metal like In Flames/Dark Tranquillity than black metal...

    and yeah, Wacken is going to be awesome! no question about that!

    horb,
    are you aware that it's Sabbat from Japan. i was pretty let down, by that.
    p.s. the list better not be complete......they've added too many useless bands lately!.....WTF is Thunderstone.....how embarassing

    for an absolute Crushing bill they still need Enslaved, Entombed and Witchery

    I think I will like this place!

    I agree with a lot of what you all said.

    Wacken WILL be great this year. 2000 and 2001 were fucking killer.

    The line-up's at Wacken are very good I think. I have not yet been let down by a Wacken line up.

    And IMMORTAL are my favourite BM band. Yes, they are Black Metal. Dimmu are NOT BM and they are not any any similar contests except both bands hail from Norway. Dimmu had a great album called Stormblast in the mid-90's that would be considered to be BM. This will be my 6th time seeing them Live.

    Children of Bodom are great. I like the style they play and have seen them live one time and they kill.

    Another band on the Wacken bill similar to COB are "Kalmah" from Finland. Check these dudes out! Music is like COB, but the vocals sound NOTHING like Alexi's, they are more in league with Incantation/Nile vocally! Can't wait to see Kalmah live at Wacken.

    Are people from this forum planning a get together (drinking beer/cheers) while at Wacken 2002?

    Thanks for everyone who replied to my thread!!1

    Cheers

    Blizz/Scott

    yeah

    I just saw Immortal Saturday night with Manowar!
    I had never heard them before, but I was totally impressed!
    I'm looking forward to seeing them again at Wacken, plus I'm sure many other Euro-bands I haven't heard that I'm sure are awesome. Hmmmm....Why does it seem like all the good bands nowadays are European?? I think this answer goes deep......hehehe........
    i'm pumped for Wacken!!!
    ...Dissapointed that I could have seen Opeth, In Flames, + Helloween last year, but didn't know of Wacken!! Oh well, nice lineup this year, can't wait to see Blind Guardian, Falconer, C.O.B.,
    + Immortal again!!

    I was pretty happy when I read that Sabbat was going to play. I thought that I would never be able to see them live...
