On the same weekend as Ragnarök and Doom Shall Rise. Great lineup, but seriously terrible timing.

It is only a problem for people who are into Doom, Black, Pagan & Folk I guess. Well for me I do like both Doom and Black and most Pagan and Folk should die imo But then comparing Doom Shall Rise line-up to that of this black fest... easy DSR is superior due to the smaller more underground names there (Griftegard, Lord Vicar etc) plus Pagan Altar & Warning.

Indeed, the lineup of this particular fest isn't really underground. Except for Taake, Hellsaw and Mathyr all of those bands have played on Wacken already. I'm just not enough into doom to appreciate all those underground bands at DSR. And I've been into pagan and folk for too long to actually appreciate most bands at Ragnarök. But as Fjoergyn are gonna play the release show of their new album at Ragnarök I don't really have much of a choice

Actually I wouldn't call Taake too underground either cause they are a well known name and have toured a lot. Hellsaw is a btit more underground and Mathyr certainly are (I guess they are a local band, right?)

Mathyr are more or less a local band, yeah. And I didn't call Taake underground, I just cannot recall them ever having played at Wacken.

Anyway, don't Taake and Watain have some kind of feud?

Not that I know of, as far as I know Watain hasn't got a feud with anyone. IMO it would almost be impossible to have a feud with Watain since the guys in the band are really nice and amicable people.

Nifelheim got replaced by Necrophobic. According to the organization: "originally they were a part of the festival but by personal reasons they have to change their slot with Necrophobic".

Mayhem, Watain and Necros Christos? Wicked. Taake could be nice but I'm afraid that Hoest is going to "rock out with his cock out" again.

Frank told me about this one just last night. I think I just hit some other level of puberty because my balls have grown immensely. Not really, but this concert sounds great. Dark Funeral....ehh...not so much, but the rest is a spectacular line-up.

Did you mean BETWEEN these two other shows? Ragnarök is at the end of March and Doom Shall Rise is in the middle of April. This is definitely a show I don't want to miss. It's on a Wednesday and I always have my German courses, but I think the teacher shall be quite understanding.

MAYHEM, WATAIN...TAAKE. I could have swore Frank (you know who I'm talking about) was just fucking with me. It still kinda blows my mind, this is some great shit! Just checked out Mathyr and it's not that bad either. Reminds of Vorkreist a little bit, except the fact that Vorkreist is better, lol.

Err sorry, just fixed the date

It's indeed on the same weekend as Ragnarök and DSR which both take place in the middle of April this year. And festivals by Burning Stage always take place on Saturdays. So I guess you shouldn't have any problems with your German classes

No, but now I got a problem with work . I saw this as beneficial because I wouldn't have to ask for a day off and just miss school. Now I'll have to make them leave that Saturday free.
