anyone going to Wacken this year?
« on: July 23, 2009, 10:29:50 PM »
We're leaving on Sunday!

The lineup isn't as great as everyone was hoping (and now Anthrax have pulled out too, given that they've just fired singer number 4) but I'm still pretty pumped. Amon Amarth, In Flames, Heaven and Hell, Napalm Death... Tom Gabriel Warrior is doing a song with Sarke... Motorhead... should be epic. And of course, Mambo Kurt  :headbang:

Anyone else making the trip?

Louis Rando (Mhorgl/The Furor) will be playing with Dubai-band Nervecell.

Be sure to check them out!

hey that's awesome, I didn't know that (Louie w/ Nervecell). Their set slightly overlaps Motorhead but I was def planning on checking em out. My lineup: http://heapsbad.com/running-order-decisions-decisions

Running Wild, hahahaha yeah definitely. There's something on at the Ballroom on the Tuesday night called 'Wacken "Running Wild" Motto Party' which I dare say we'll be at too. And Swashbuckle will be playing too in the viking village, although I haven't yet worked out exactly when....

Make sure you include some time in there to drink and socialise hey, I think I remember all of about 6 bands from last year :laugh:

Oh that's in there for sure. I had the same problem last year - I even missed Carcass cos I was having some weird drunken debate about body mods with some Brits we met  :-[

I've just seen weather report and they're predicting partly cloudy and low 20's for the entire week, which is fucking fantastic news because 31 was just shite last year.

Are you just doing a write-up for it or are you a photographer also?

I'm not gonna be photographing the bands but I will have a camera on me - I'm gonna be writing kind of a travel diary for MAF so I'm taking pictures of people being loons. Which should keep me well occupied  :laugh:
