The wishlist really isnt representative of anything thought I dont think. Me and my mates never post in them and have been going for nearly ten years and we all really like the announcement. I doubt more than about 20-30 people post in the wishlist any more

Definitely could be worse but it also could have been much better.

Mastodon = metal for hipsters.

But who cares if some hipsters like them, they are a really good metal band. Never understood people who try to claim they arent metal.

Better than Trivium and Within Temptation which are both Kerrang kiddie bands! Mastodon at least fit in with the festival

Oh yeah I know :lol: He has a tendency to say stupid stuff though, and the history of metal is littered with bands claiming they arent metal

Where'd you get that one from? If they do that it'd be a good move.

Mastodon aren't really Heavy Metal. I think some people mistake heaviness for being Metal. "Heavy Music" for Guardian readers. :lol:
