Out of those I guess I would like to see Hell and to a lessers extent Freak Kitchen and Finntroll... But the rest, definitely not a festival for me.

Hell I would LOVE to see, Freak Kitchen I saw at Hellfest and was okayish and Finntroll at Hellfest were just totally bad. Accept could be good if they played old songs

I don't know if you have seen Accept since they got with Tornillo, but their live shows now are absolutely heavy and energetic as hell (even the longer, newer songs). Out of all the headlining bands, I think they're the best, with Blind Guardian being second.

I sometimes thought of getting to this as Accept doesn't seem to like doing festivals that much since their return (and they totally blew my mind when I saw them in June 2010).

why would I want to see current wannabe Accept when I saw them in 1983 on the tour supporting their best album? And I hate BG live (also on album tbh) because of the people screaming along to them. If I hate something it's people screaming along to a band right in my ear. I paid good money to hear the band and not some fuckwit next to me.

Then you'll never be able to appreciate BG live, because the audience's reactions make half of the show. The communion between band and fans is just awesome in this case. No, that's definitely no the type of shows one goes to just to listen to music

I saw them at Hellfest and the crowd spoiled what good there was (and that was very little) I just watched the ACDC Live At Rive Plate DVD and that was horrendous with the crowd screaming along like a total bunch of fucking retards. If I had been there I would have demanded a refund of my money spent on tickets because I coiuldn't hear the band.

Different ways to enjoy different bands, I say. BTW, for their HF performance, the only good thing was the crowd. The band (and Hansi in particular) were lame, thankfully the fans cheered and sung all along. I know, I was one of them

Yep, Blind Guardian live are never very impressive but the crowd always is. This is one of the best closing the festival could hope for, and I'm certainly expecting to ruin someone else's show due to my horrendous singing^^

If you see a guy wearing a Metal Storm t-shirt there, stop and say "hi"

I will provide a longer comment later but to sum it up, it was a very good fest! Best performances IMO: Powerwolf, Hell, Accept and Korpiklaani.
