We're talking about a meeting between all the users here.

http://www.metalstorm.ee/forum/topic.php?topic_id=11662

Come in the thread to talk about it with us!
SilentScream - 02.05.2008 at 21:45  
Yeah, that's right, I'm the only canadian metalstormer that's gonna be at the show. France will never know what hit them.

RAISING HELL!

why is NOFX there D:

why is NOFX there D:


Because they are more metal and way superior to Helloween and Gamma Ray

Don't take my comment too seiously
But I just can't stand people that whine about certain bands being there.
And IMO (and that of many others as well) bands such as NOFX do have a place at a festival such as Hellfest. Remember that before it was Hellfest it was called Furyfest and there was a lot more hardcore programmed then there is nowadays
White Winter Sun - 13.05.2008 at 00:04  
Completely right. I was at the Furyfest 2005 at Le Mans and a lot of hardcore bands were programmed (and few punk bands too). Now the hardcore and metal edition are separated events.
Jeff - 13.05.2008 at 19:25  
Ok, you all know the runing order already but now you can see it on our Hellfest Page too!

I hope that it will be helpful for some of you
Baz Anderson - 14.05.2008 at 12:42  
aaah, now we get to dispair over the clashes that affect us.. hahaha
there's a few clashes in there I don't like.. but at least there's nothing too serious..
Jeff - 14.05.2008 at 15:16  
Yeah but anyway, since that you're in the press team, you'll probably miss some gigs...

Life is hard I know!
White Winter Sun - 14.05.2008 at 22:05  
Thanks for the printable version. For each of us, it will be a good help to realize our personalized program.

(for lazy people, the Running_Order.pdf (as Jeff said it above) can be directly downloaded here).
Dagorwen - 18.05.2008 at 19:56  
Are there other people who cannot come and are tortured by the tremendous programm? It's really horrible to miss such an event!

The most tremendous thing I gonna miss about this festival are the guys who are gonna be there
Dagorwen - 18.05.2008 at 20:12  
do you mean the bands? if yes, of course (aaaaargh, Dimmu Borgir!!!!)
or do you mean the metalheads going there?
Promonex - 18.05.2008 at 21:46  
I actually meant the metalheads. The bands I care about I have either seen already or am going to see at another festival in the course of the year, save for Ministry, Benighted and Anaal Nathrakh perhaps. Being from Germany I am rather spoiled with festivals, but less so with fellow Metalstormers.
juanopereira - 20.05.2008 at 20:26  
Helloween, Gamma Ray, Sonata Arctica, Slayer, In Flames, Iced Earth!! Why there aren't events like this in my fucking country?!
DeeDee - 21.05.2008 at 22:44  
i won't come this yeat ( and there are so mamy bands i'd like to see
Dagorwen - 22.05.2008 at 19:18  
Well, I'll prehaps success in coming for the first day... hope so!
4look4rd - 25.05.2008 at 19:52  
damn what a great line up
Jeff - 05.06.2008 at 01:28  
Soilwork canceled replaced by ETHS (french band).
wrathchild - 08.06.2008 at 13:20  
Two weeks! I've booked my train tickets and will be arriving in Clisson on Thursday evening (with a bunch of MSers). That's gonna be great
Baz Anderson - 08.06.2008 at 16:24  
hopefully we can all meet up some time on the Thursday then - I hope we can all get around the same area in the camp site.
that way if I get lost, I can ring you again wrath. hahahahahaha
Jeff - 08.06.2008 at 16:27  
I don't see why, at least the MS team shouldn't be at the same place at the camping. That's not Graspop I don't think that it will be hard for you to be together.

But of course people who're not from the team but want to be with MS people should contact us here to see how they can join us.

Edit: maybe that we can try to contact via email all the people who are in the list to see if they want to be in the meeting or not?
Xan-X - 10.06.2008 at 06:41  
I wish I could go to this...
Its like my dream festival!!
wrathchild - 15.06.2008 at 13:30  
Ok, so we're about 30 to be certain we will be there! What about the others?

And for those who are definitely going, send me a PM so we know how to get in contact once there (most of the Elites and Staff will be hanging together)!

If that forecast is right then Sunday will be hell with 30 degrees and thunderstorms.
Jeff - 17.06.2008 at 15:08  
Yes damn

We'll see... the weather is really variable this week so we never know...
Darkside Momo - 18.06.2008 at 14:19  
I will hardly be worse than last year though

Meteo France says the weather's gonna be nice all the week end. I think it proves weather forecasts should be trusted for no reason

If Meteo France is sure, no problem, it will be rain during the 3 days
Anyway see you on friday, with or without K-way
Duy Hung - 21.06.2008 at 15:53  
So how was the first day? do they have Internet there?
sq_xeper - 22.06.2008 at 01:58  
How was Carcass's performance???
Dagorwen - 23.06.2008 at 14:30  
SO ?? How was it??? Are you still alive guys?
White Winter Sun - 23.06.2008 at 18:22  
The Carcass' performance was really good for me, as At The Gates, Slayer and a lot of other bands.
See Carcass at Hellfest was a great moment and my last concert of the first day. Then, I was out of doors before the first second of Venom's show
wrathchild - 23.06.2008 at 21:47  
I did stay until the third Venom song, with Momo and ylside
Seriously, a good band but we were so tired - and mostly because of all the great bands we could see on the first day!
The second day was excellent too, the third was (for me) not as good as the others but still, nothing to be unhappy about.

A few fact:
- this time the weather was hot and sunny, except for some light rain pouring down on saturday (during Cavalera Conspiracy) and sunday night.
- the organisation was way better than last year! Still, no showers, but you can hardly blame them on that given all the efforts they made. It's like they listened to all the complaints and even went further.
- the schedule was tight and top-notch, no delays, etc.
- Evile and Necrophagist cancelled... too bad, they were almost the only bands I really wanted to see on the Discovery stage (the small one that is).

To sum up:

Yeah, Venom... Black Metal (the first song they played) was good, typically Venom (as in 'take it or leave it'). But after, the second one was new. And, sorry to said, boring.

On a general side, Wrath summed it up. Great great great great
Highlights : Alchemist, Septic Flesh, Testament, Carcass, Sodom, Ministry, Cavalera Conspiracy, Ghost Brigade, Primordial, At The Gates, Morbid Angel.
But for the details, you'll have to wait for the Official MS report.
Deadsoulman - 24.06.2008 at 14:35  
Amazing fest, I was really happy to meet all the MS guys, some of them for the first time. The organization was so much better than last year, the weather was great, and as a bonus I got to interview two bands that I love, which is way beyond cool
And the shows... a lot of them were amazing. Personal highlights:
Friday: Septic Flesh, Testament (maybe the best show of the week end for me), Carcass
Saturday: Benighted, Anathema, Iced Earth, Anaal Nathrakh, Watain
Sunday: Between The Buried And Me (close second to Testament in terms of ass-kickage), Origin (in my top 3 as well, and probably the most brutal show I've ever seen), The Ocean, At The Gates, My Dying Bride, Morbid Angel

Personal letdowns:
The beer was weak as piss, I missed Primordial, Slayer was not very good (as usual) and Evile got cancelled without warning. Only stuff I can live with. In other words, this fest was a blast!

The beer was weak as piss last year as well. Clearly festival beer of 1.5% at most why do you i think I didn't get drunk on beer last year, cause it was impossible.

And Slayer kicked major ass last year (but I think that was the first night so you weren't there yet)
Jeff - 24.06.2008 at 18:12  
Well, actually it was possible to find some "Couilles de loup" beer in the festival crew area. It was cheaper and a LOT better hehe

I will try to come back later with words about the festival, but seriously no letdown for me this year, it was one of the best festival that I've ever attended!
Dagorwen - 24.06.2008 at 19:17  
OMG, "wolf balls" ("Couilles de loup" for the non French speaker)!!!! I didn't knew that thing!!!
Darkside Momo - 27.06.2008 at 16:04  
Neither did I.
About Slayer, they played two songs, stopped for a minute, then same thing. And Araya clearly wasn't good this night.

Yeah I heard that from a friend of mine who went as well. Seems like they were a lot better last year.

yes they were, no doubt about it
Baz Anderson - 27.06.2008 at 18:18  
yep yep. way way way better last year - they surprised me last year but kind of mildly entertained me this year.
oh well, it was such a good festival - highlights for me aside interviewing and being in the photo pit, etc. were Morbid Angel - wow! I have wanted to see these guys for a LONG time. Ministry was also really really good!!
Mayhem were great too!! I have some really funny pictures of Attila. hahaha
Of course Dying Fetus, Krisiun, Origin and Septic Flesh were all great too.. and Helloween & Gamma Ray.
Can't wait to get everything online!!
