They aren't able to play at W:O:A 'cause theyre promoting their new album in the US at that time.
Yeah good point. Didn't see that. They're in Ohio and Pennsylvania that weekend wasting their time with that dick Marilyn Manson and another band that should be at Wacken, Behemoth...
Is this a fucking joke? Wacken Rocks?! No-one gives two shits about Wacken Rocks! WACKEN OPEN AIR!!! What the fuck is wrong with you people...?! LESS IS MORE!!! FOCUS ON ONE FESTIVAL!!!
slayer haven't made a good album in like what though 10-15 years? who cares about the new one, if they where playing a classic slayer set ie seasons in the abyss and earlier i'd be down the front for the whole thing, end of the day they've never been announced for wacken and so what if they play Wacken rocks its great promotion for the newer festivals they're doing, means they will sell more tickets and increase profit which means as an organisation they make more money which means that WOA will get better too as its currently at full capacity... so if you wanna go that bad buy wacken rocks tickets!
If not think about how its better for all of us in general for wacken in the long term.
