This was tougher than I thought it would be:

1. Wintersun
2. Amon Amarth
3. Blind Guardian
4. Ghost
5. Hell
6. Ba'al
7. Battle Beast
8. Skindred
9. Wind Rose
10. Dakesis
11. Ramge Inc
12. Annihilator
13. Testament
14. Black Moth
15. Eradikator
16. Puppy
17. Courtesans
18. Mist
19. Season's End
20. Florence Black

Tbh, this list may change greatly with more listens. I expect zhOra to possibly make it, for example, but I 've not yet had chance to properly check them out.

My lists so far, although I haven't got round to listening to everyone on the bill yet! In no particular order...

Must see bands:
- Testament
- Decapitated
- Ghost
- Kreator
- Municipal Waste
- Annihilator
- Megadeth
- Arch Enemy
- Obituary
- Possessed
- Macabre
- Blaakyum
- The Infernal Sea

Somewhat familiar with and curious to watch:
- King 810
-Skindred
- Brujeria
- Inquisition
- Season's End
- Wintersun

Also happy to watch Amon Amarth, Blind Guardian, Winterfylleth, Kroh and Bossk although not massive draws as I've seen most of them before. Never a band I would actively avoid, I'll give any band a chance and move to a different stage if I'm not feeling it :)

I've a feeling that Sunday afternoon will be clash central!

On main stage I want to see Possessed, Obituary, Brujeria and Hell.
On Sophie stage I want to see Wretched Soul, Puppy and Wolfheart.
I see the bad moon arising.

You might also want to check out Dakesis. An on stage quote from the last time I saw them:

"We only have time for one more song..." <boos from the crowd> "but it's OK because it's a 17 minute prog metal epic!"

Now OK, they're very much at the melodic end of the prog spectrum. But I figured that might at least pique your interest.

You laugh at me because I'm different. I pity you, you're all the same...

They're on the list of 37 bands (and conting) to check out!

FWIW, there's only 15 bands on my "definately skip" list of bands I know I don't like, although 13 of those are on the RJD...

Down a couple of slots sees them clash with Skindred which would be perfect. Once slot puts them in the middle of Arthemis which would be awful! Then there's a possibility of a Hell/Wolfheart/Blaakyum clash earlier on.... :o


Same here! The percussion really sets them apart :)

1. Devilment
2. Corpsing (PLEASE don't clash with Devilment)
3. Shrapnel
4. Inquisition
5. Infernal Sea
6. Wolfheart
7. Criminal (Bucket list band)
8. Wintersun
9. Macabre
10. Wretched Soul
