'Valhalla' lasts too long because they let the crowd repeat the chorus over and over and over again. Last year at the Forum they could easily have played another song instead.

Is it me, or have they dropped the 1325-1350 slot on the Jager?

Yeah, there's only five bands on the Jaeger stage per day, vs. six in 2016.

Was hoping for 7 this year. Oh well!

I've put up the first draft of my printable schedule for the year. Link in my sig. Same format as I've put out for the last dozen events.

Info is sparse, more will appear as I get more info!

Some pretty bloody stupid clashes this year. I'm going to watch a lot of New Blood Bands this year when there's nothing else I want to watch..but not really the ones I really really want to see out of choice. This seems to happen every year with the quality bands I want to watch on New blood clashing with quality bands most people will want to watch on the Sophie or RJD and then the New Blood bands I'm not bothered about are on when there's not much else I want to see on any other stages. Don't think I'm alone with this either. Who puts Infected Dead on at the same time as Abhorrent Decimation (a conundrum for death metal fans). really dumb clash. the best New blood band Nordjevel clash with Blind Guardian. Raze The Void with Soilwork (fans of one would like the style of each probably).. Wolfheart and Obituary is a bad one too. My biggest hang out at New blood time will be Saturday afternoon after Annihilator until Kreator, fortunately some decent New Blood bands on that afternoon and might squeeze Ohmms in there too. All in all though it's not too bad actually, I'm quite pleased but pretty pissed off with the two best death metal bands on the bill clashing. Wolfheart with Obituary and Abhorrent Decimation with Infected Dead

Two things caught my eye, AA and Megadeth are due on 45 minutes after the sub headliner yet Ghost are on an hour after Kreator, do we think that means a bigger/more elaborate stage show?

Also the main stage now opens at 10:45? Unless it's to give stagehands a little extra change over time I can't see what it's being used for

Same as last year. Means every mainstage band gets at least a 40 minute set now.

There is also a band announcement between Kreator and Ghost....but surely that won't take too long?

I reckon it's due to their stage show, plus I imagine the 20 nuns who won the competition will have to have a briefing of some sort!

Yeah hoping Serpent's Lair times come out today, last chance I'll get to print my stuff is Tuesday but I'm in a meeting all day so today would be better.

Just watch Blind Guardian, caught Nordjevel in London a few months ago and they really weren't that good, they're far better on record than live.
