As of right now the only bands I care to see are Machine Head and In Flames (and I'm not even a fan of their latest albums). Blergh.
At least day 1 of last year was epic....although I guess it was wishful thinking to see more bands like Mastodon/High on Fire this year.
Despite not being crazy about them, I'd put Testament's performance up there as well. They got the crowd energized and were awesome.
Mastodon was great as usual (as were High on Fire), and Fear Factory had a pretty good set.
Didn't go on the second day...wasn't going to break the bank to see only LoG and Rob Zombie.
Pretty much agree with everything you said here.
Machine Head, In Flames (for the old stuff) and Red Fang are the only bands I'm interested in seeing thus far.
The 2nd day was pretty weak, a lot of metalcore. I have a soft spot for Shadows' Fall, Rob Zombie and 3 Inches of Blood so I shelled out for the entire weekend but Day 2 was disappointing. Luckily it looks like day 1 will be the weak day this year, so we should end on a high note.
I think we'll see Mastodon added, they've played both times and could really be a headliner this year.
I'm as disappointed as anyone at this years' lineup thus far, but I"m going to give them the benefit of the doubt and hope they come through. I'm hoping to see some familiar names (mastodon, high on fire, skeletonwithc, slayer, preistess, Kataklysm, etc) along with some bands that have yet to play. Motorhead, Black Label Society, Devildriver, Goatwhore, Darkest Hour, Baroness, Cavalara Conspiracy to name a few all appear to be open this summer, with any luck a few will land in Montreal.
As for the album after Deliver Us, it doesn't exist to me
Ya, it was pretty weak. There is a few tracks I like but it was a real letdown compared to the quality of their previous albums.
