Well, since ICED EARTH officially cancelled their appearance at The Gates of Metal Festival in Sweden on August 2nd, a day AFTER their scheduled appearance at Wacken on August 1st, I can only assume that a cancellation from ICED EARTH is forthcoming for Wacken as well? This will be very interesting indeed. Unfortunately, instead of another major band being signed for the show (save for possibly Blind Guardian, who were at Wacken last year anyway) I only see another already signed band (such as In Flames) getting a longer set time. UNLESS.......... we get Demons & Wizards. Any word Holger?
