At least those bands had a strong undercard to bolster the day, so far apart from Anthrax, PD will have the double whammy of being unpopular and having a crap lead up into them
Machine Head, Lamb Of God and Down were not massive stretches in terms of headliners, as they all had a reasonably large crossover with the BOA crowd.
Trivium was the big stretch and apparently they got a tiny crowd (I didn't go that year cos the line up looked wank), so that tells you that there's some room for branching out with the headliners, but it's not unlimited. I've not even heard a single song by Parkway Drive, and I imagine I'm not alone in that, so I think it's more than likely than PD will turn into a similar Trivium style headliner balls up.
