Hey that's not fair on the other bands putting them in the same category!
I have to agree with you there, the other bands are nowhere near as good as Five Finger Death Punch
Oi!!! Now I know you don't mean that

I'd be fine with that, I'm not that into power but if we can have 3 death metal bands all in one go, then don't see why not to balance things out. Plus a mate loves Therion. Like Bloodfiend said, would sure beat the he'll out of some of the band's they book!

Kidding aside though, it is disappointing that a single announcement focused entirely on death metal. Once again, extreme metal is far outweighing the melodic bands at the moment and hopefully that imbalance will be redressed. Blind Guardian was a step in the right direction but I hope the organisers don't just think that will keep the power metal fans happy for a whole weekend.
I thought you might of been, it's cool
I can see how it is disapointing for those not into death metal, Blind Guardian do have a big slot though so will get more time than the others, but I know it's not enough with just them representing the more melodic side. Hopefully they can continue to balance out the genres with future announcements and avoid alot of the rubbish we had last year!
