Question time : is this worth getting for someone who only vaguely knows 3 of the 4 bands? Or is it a good idea to watch it anways....
Mainstream media should steer clear of metal. They don't understand it, and metal never needed them.
I'm a surly old school metal fan (could you tell?). As far as I'm concerned, metal could have stopped evolving somewhere between 1986-1989 and we wouldn't be missing out on much today
Check out Manilla Road, Metal Church, Lillian Axe, Candlemass... for some of the best metal you've never heard.
Nearly the whole of the first page of this thread disagrees with you
I'm used to that
I agree that it's pretty 'tame' compared to the stuff in this thread, but to me there's some stuff in there that's a bit too extreme for me already...
There'll always be one guy who thinks whatever music list isn't "hardcore" or "metal" enough...
Rock Harz Festival.
Returning to Wacken, I predict a visitor's riot like on the 1997 (I think) Dynamo festival, where fans, feeling ripped off, set fire to the tent stage (and threw mud at Marilyn Manson!) any year now.
On a more positive road I'd like to agree with Thunderchild and order everyone here who does not own Candlemass' Epicus Doomicus Metallicus to go and buy it now. As in right now. It's that good. Seriously.

We played Wacken in 2006. While I thought the organisation was quite good, there were some shenanigans among the crowd that really were unacceptable.
It's gotten too big for its own good. It's only a matter of time before it either implodes (like Dynamo did) or before something bad happens.
There are more metalheads than I expected!
I´ve been listening to a lot of Slayer and Revocation lately.
Went to Half Price Books and picked up Slayer's Hell Awaits. I was surprised that a redneck city would actually have metal. They even had a copy of Napalm Death Bootlegged in Japan, which I half regret not getting. But I really wish I had a record player and some decent vintage audio equipment now that I saw a $3.99 Ratt's Out of the Cellar LP. *sigh*
