    Forgive this first post and forgive the fact that this may have already been brought up, albeit my knowledge of the German language isn't sufficient to understand much of the German part of the forum.

    Onto the reason for this thread - what are people's views here on Soulfly being added to the playlist? They are clearly not a Metal band and the type of fans they attract are almost a polar opposite to the kind of people who go to Wacken. From the tone of this post, I think my view is quite clear, heh. :D

    Well they ARE a Metal band albeit not that good. Machine Head got a pretty good reception last year and I can imagine them being booked was partly due to that.

    They are clearly a metal band (and I definitely hate all that nu metal = no metal crap by the true bollocks mafia), but they probably shouldn't play anyway because they aren't any good. At least the two times I saw them. Incredibly boring.

    Do they play Sepultura songs?

    Damn, I just made pretty much the same post in the other forum. Anyhow, hell no they aren't a metal band, and hell no they shouldn't get to play Wacken. There are plenty of fests for garbage like that, they should just get on ozzfest or something and leave metal festivals alone. I don't care how much people hate to hear it, "nu-metal" = unmetal! I might actually take the time to go heckle them if there aren't any good bands on at the same time (not likely).

    Well, yeah... they are a metal band. Their presence adds to variety of the festival, I'm glad. Wacken offers people the chance to see almost any type of metal. I've never really bothered myself being angry over what other people think is good music...

    And there you have it, my view.

    well i think the problem is that soulfly aint inoventive they dont bring new stuff.all there songs have something from oww sepultura did dad.machine head did that oww megadeth did dad ow that band did that.but well soulfly aint bad its just when your are really bored you can listen to it but they dont bring something new to the metal scene and that is really sad because max and the band is really good but sad that they cant bring something "new"

    Soulfly are a metal band - as opposed to, say, Despairs Ray (or whatever is the name of this J-rock band - which is also on the playlist for 2006). ;)

    I fail to see what the problem is here: you don't like them --> skip them, see some other band, go to Metal market, or just hang around in the camp and drink beer. :)

    What's wrong with my answer? ;)
    This "should XYZ really be on the playlist, they aren't metal / not true enough, etc." has been around for years - perhaps I should get used to it, but sometimes I do find it annoying, that's the only reason for my previous reply. :)
    If you want the "answer-to-the-point" - i.e., what are my views - here it is: I don't care. Hope this clears it up a bit. ;)
