Come on, no one wants to see Job For a Cowboy.
Job For A Choirboy does not fit this festival.
Indeed. We don't want metalcore, but metal!
how do you know that?
Wacken Open Air is a metal festival. Job For A Choirboy and any other metalcore/mallcore bands do not categorize as actual metal.
Wacken-Armour just said it. I don't suppose you are going to Wacken to see non-metal bands?
well i am not a metalcore fan not by far! and they could book way better bands.. but i dont believe that from 60 k people nobody wants to see those bands!
If you don't want to see "core" bands you just give go drink beer stupids redneck!
You so-called "experts" but the latest album from JFAC is a pure death metal album ... but your ears engluer crap of intolerence should not hear!
There are only at Wacken that one can acquire knowledge in metal? Haha!
Unlike you I listen to what is happening in the genre (black, death, grind, hardcore, metalcore, heavy, thrash ...) and for me, none of them is useless.
I thought the morons "bearer of the truth" concerning the metal was typical french ...
So that's a whole festival to the beer tents then.
Metal festival = Metal music.
Core = Not metal.
It's as easy as that.
Congratulations on fuelling the metal-kiddie stereotype. Completely unaware of how a genre sounds. But oh okay, I suppose as long as some cool metal magazine tells you what to like, then you're happy.
Neither grind, hardcore nor metalcore are defined as actual metal.
Sorry, I don't read "cool metal magazine"...but if you say...
While "Genesis" is not death metal, well tell me what it is please!
Yes, I differentiates "core" and "metal" but I think this is not a little eclecticism that will change totally the Wacken ... on the contrary, it can make it evolve (+ tickets sold = + €€€ = + bands ...)!
Cyber999 has a point, I am sure that plenty of people do want to see JFAC, just like that large swathe of people who watched The Black Dahlia Murder and Heaven Shall Burn last year. Sadly these are people are helping to ruin Wacken for those who want it to be a metalfest. People like our friend DrakeiN here, who can't tell the difference between death metal and the attempts of a group of kids to jump on a bandwagon.
DrakeiN, you want to know what Genesis is? It's a cheap attempt at death metal, played by a bunch of kids who sound like they've just heard of death metal. That's why the solos are shit, that's why the riffs are generic, thats why the vocals are forgettable. Real death metal is written with passion, which these scene kids will probably never understand. If you'd been to Wacken before you might wonder why none of the metal stalls in the metal market sells metalcore/deathcore CDs or shirts - just thrash, death, black and doom. You might also realise that Wacken has sold out for the last few years on the strength of bands like Emperor and Celtic Frost - Wacken is not growing anymore, they have announced that, so all that metalcore is bringing to the festival is it's teenage fans instead of metalheads.
oh no! i am a poser i whatched the black dahlia murder
no i saw t shirts from naera
Would you guys stop argueing! The greatest thing about Wacken is the people, don't let the bands turn us against each other!
I hope that these announcements are just a mistake, and that the the organisers will realise that such announcements are a bad idea in the future, we'll see I guess.
But hell, Maiden, Carcass, Avantasia, Gorgoroth, Primordial etc.. WOA still has the best festival line-up in Europe!
Personally I think that Party San has a much better line-up. They got Bolt Thrower, and they don't have any shit metalcore, except for Maroon, who presumably got added because they're German. That said, they did have TBDM last year, which is surprising. I think At The Gates is over rated, so I don't see the excitement in a generic metalcore version of them.
Well, they were playing last year. Admittedly I did see one stall which had a Trivium shirt for sale.
