Man what an incredible weekend. Only downsides were SOAD not doing an encore (though respectable because they played over the time limit and Nightwish were late), lots of dust clouds, cold weather(was bloody roasting the last 2 years) and the usual rediculous prices for food.

Black Sabbath were by far the best. Hand on my heart one of the best bands I've ever seen, it was honestly out of this world. Slipknot were on fire and had the whole main stage jumping. Saw Slayer for the third time and this was their best performance, the pits were nuts! In Flames had the whole Snickers tent jumping too. SOAD, just ace! Society 1 broke a world record with their vocalist hanging from meat hooks for the whole set list, sick but interesting to see. Anthrax/Megadeth/Lordi/Killswitch Engage/Papa Roach/Mastodon/Velvet Revolver all put on a great show. Can't wait for next year. Photos will be posted within a week.

Random funny things were this fat guy in front of us with his ass crack showing, lots of boobies on the main screen, along with the pictures too. Aftershock tent was crazy and the general atmosphere was great as always. Blown 500 in 5 days lol :rockon:

Yipe was an amazing weekend indeed highlights being:-

1. Seeing SLAYER for the 10th time :rockon::rockon::rockon:

2. Nightwish playing only 4 songs but were fuckin' amazing and worth the wait ( the wait also meant i could catch the first 3 songs of Lacuna Coil then catch SLAYER's set :D

3. Napalm Death, Raging Speedhorn & Paradise Lost finishing the Friday off in style in the Napster tent.

4. Send More Paramedics in the Snickers tent poor sound but flippin' great performance.

5. 3 Inches of Blood on the Napster stage.

I agree with you about Black Sabbath being one of the greatest live bands but i dont think they were as good as previous years.

And finally FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND what the hell was all the fuss about, there not exactly a large pull like Metallica, Slayer, Machine Head so why the need for the carry on :moody:

It was really hard to get in the tent for Napalm Death. One good thing about the festival is they definately suceeded in making it a hell of a lot better organised than last year

The trick was to be there for Paradise Lost & Raging Speedhorn beforehand :D

Me and the girlfriend were second from the front for most of it :rockon:

Roughly:

Blackmail the Universe,

Skin O' My Teeth,

Holy Wars,

Wake Up Dead,

Trust,

She Wolf,

Some others off the new album that I can't remember the names of.

But yeah, they were very good, was just a shame I ended up so far back after being at Apocalyptica/buying food and so on. Some people complained of their lack of crowd interaction, but that's just Megadeth, he doesn't feel the need to do that stuff when their songs have so much to say in themselves.......or something!

Shut up Kev.

And on the subject of the thread:

Motorhead, in my eyes, were the best band of the festival by miles, closely followed by Anthrax, The Dwarves, Paradise Lost, As I Lay Dying, Shadows Fall, plus the obvious ones (Sabbath, Slayer, Megadeth etc).

Worst band would have to go to DV8- they were awful, but they didn't deserve the amount of abuse they got (bottles on the stage all the way through the set, booed off the stage etc). It was also a novelty to see them on the Main Stage, considering they all looked about fourteen (literally), they'd have been much more suited to the Napster Stage I think. The vocalist also pissed me off.

"So, do any of you like alcoholic beverages?"

Fuck off.

They definitely did, I remember telling Andy the story of it being the first Megadeth song I learnt to play.

Did anyone see the aceness that is Queen Adreena? I believe they were on pretty much first thing on the Friday, so I doubt it. Which would be a shame since they're a fucking brilliant live act.

I'd think quite a lot of them would have, since they were on the main stage, directly before Wednesday 13, but we chose Flogging Molly instead, and I can't say I regret it.

I'd hardly call walking past them from a distance of 500ft, for a minute, SEEING them.
