Absolutely! Very well said!
Do you think the orgas give a shit if people sell their tickets on ebay? Hell no, the festival is sold out, so why would they care? Come on, use some common sense here.
You are an idiot! I love Testament and Nevermore also, but Nevermore are NOT a thrash band, never were, as for Thrash bands, ever heard of Whiplash?? As for the comments about PowerMetal bands, so far there are 4 or 5 on the billing, no, Airbourbe are not Power Metal, and out of a total of 60-70 bands that is very few. If anyone wants to complain about the lineup, BFMV was he'd never heard of Running Wild before, that's supposed to explain their status in the metal world? So what, now you're the benchmark for what metal is?
Totally agree !
Making this german-top-band a headliner is great for german people and german fans, but a total nonsense for all the fans who couldn't buy their tickets ! that's really weird.
Sorry, but RW is by no way big outside of Germany. Is WOA going to be "best german metal fest for german people" ?
They use to attract people from all Europe (and beyond), this year with "headliners" like RW, Saxon, Doro (come on !) they address only to german audience. Too bad.
Yes, they are good bands aside (Motorhead, Heaven & Hell, ...) but thos are playing every other metal fests this summer.
Oh yeah I know I am a stupid fuck who bought his ticket before knowing the line-up, I know I can sell it (and stick my travel ticket up my ass), etc...
Making this 20th anniversary a typical german thing is quite surprising. It would have made sense to warn people last year, when advertisiing on the 20th anniversary, and when going loike "hurry up, only 10.000 tickets left"
Maybe you should check the billing bands list once more...
Amon Amarth (Sweden)
Axel Rudi Pell (Germany)
Bring me the Horizon (UK)
Bullet for my Valentine (UK)
Gamma Ray (Germany)
Hammerfall (Sweden) (Thanks casino3:16)
Heaven & Hell (UK - US)
In Extremo (Germany)
In Flames (Sweden)
Kingdom of Sorrow (USA)
Lacuna Coil (Italy)
Machine Head (USA)
Mago de Oz (Spain)
Mambo Kurt (Germany)
Napalm Death (UK)
Running Wild (Germany)
Subway to Sally (Germany)
Walls of Jericho (USA)
That's quite international in my opinion...
hammerfall are from sweden not from germany...but nice work thanks
Oh really ? I believed all the bands where german...
Seriously, I talk about the late "top acts" announced.
RW, Rage, Doro Pesch/Warlock, Ramma Gay. Those bands may be big in Germany, but have little interest for most outsiders.
Saxon are british, but I can tell you noone listens to them anymore outside of Germany.
Of course I exagerate a bit, but I still have the right to do so, I paid 130+ euros to get that pleasure.
I got owned, and I intend to benefit of it as much as I can.
So, to me, this is a german oriented line-up, far more than the previous editions. Too bad.
And by the way : there are good bands in the line-up, but seeing RW playing 2 hours makes my ass ache.
Edit : and even if I am not really a fan of them, Iron Maiden were much classier than RW... in my opinion, of course.
Edit : I would be really pleased to see Udo or Accept, so we can have a full 80s-german crap package
Have you seen this: Schandmaul, Subway to Sally Update: 20.04.2009 ???????????
if you want all the modern commercial shit, go to another festival
Noone outside Germany listens to power metal at all...
If you don't want to read my complains, go to another thread.
i am very happy to see that wacken sticks to its roots: Rock and traditional heavy metal all the way!
danke schon wacken!
So maybe you know who would buy ticket with this line-up???
