I've been a DH fan for a long long time and I'd pickup Deliver Us also if you liked Undoing Ruin. Those are probably my fav. 2 albums, Deliver us being #1. Their guitarist left the band after deliver us and their work dropped off a bit, I just picked up their newest release and they seem to be getting their "power" back sort of speak.

For some odd reason DH are always lumped into the stupid metalcore category even though they are more similar to the melodic death bands. I'd be ecstatic if they were added to the bill.

Bruins fan come to tell some rumor from a French site who's the best metal site from Quebec. Rumor have Billy Talent on the First Day and Kiss, Motorhead on the second Day

By The way I have seen it last year The top 5 was

1-Alice Cooper
2-KoRn
3-Rob Zombie
4-Kataklysm
5-Airbourne

Slayer and Megadeth was great But No Raining blood was borring and Mustaine was singing like crap but Day One was Way Better. Too much crap like Avenged Sevenfold and stupid Metalcore on the second day
No offense man but if those were your favorite performances of the last festival then you missed a lot of bands (major props to the Airbourne dude climbing the scaffolding and doing a solo, that was some crazy ****!)

The Slayer set was great, playing Seasons' front to back was AWESOME. Sure you didn't get all the classics but any metal fan has probably saw them at least one other time and got the full set list.

Also, I don't know about the whole Heavy TO thing. I think it will end up being a no-go. Mayhem doesn't even have an opening for them that weekend, they are in Mansfield the day before and Hartford the day after......

I have all their albums, will write my thoughts on The Human Romance when I'm done listening to it. As for Deliver Us, i didn't like that it was less riff oriented. Their lyrics are always very well written, but this album didn't impress me much. Although Doomsayer and Deliver us (!!!) are great songs, especially the latter. For me Undoing Ruin was a masterpiece, it had With a thousand words..., Convalescence, Sound of Surrender and These Fevered Times, not to mention the top notch instrumentals. To each their own, though. If you like DH you might like another band called Within Y, their stuff is kinda hard to find, though.

As for the album after Deliver Us, it doesn't exist to me

Heavy MTL is shaping up to be awful this year.

Kiss? Really? Ugh.

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.

Agreed.

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.

Not at all. I just knew when the announcement was coming.
All i know are rumors like anyone else, KISS, COB, Darkest hour, etc.

Seems like they really wanted to keep it under wraps this year.

But as true metal fans, we will complain even if they scheduled the ghost of dimebag to play.

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.

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.

Tommy Thayer is a twangy piece of crap that is happy making peanuts, just so he can imitate his hero Ace, while Eric is a freakin' ape on drums. The politics alone nowadays is ****** with the band too. Gene and Paul talk to each others through their agents, and the two others are just scabs that bring Gene his coffee, do anything he wants and get paid like employees or session musicians.

I can get a lot more into them, but I'll save myself the stress. Simply put, if they ever appear at a festival I'm at, I'll take that chance to go to the bathroom or get a snack.
I just don't see why their personal lives need to have an affect on the music. They play the songs the same as they always did, they just aren't the original 4 members.

That being said I understand loving one member or another whose left the band, but to totally dislike the band now because of in band politics to me is just crazy.

Who gives a **** about their personal lives, their moral choices in life and if they're a good or bad person. You're there for the music and letting their personal squabs get in the way of that is just silly to me.

No 70s rock/80s metal band will ever live up to the height of their potential because that's just how nostalgia is.

On the positive side, they did add DevilDriver, The Sword, Opeth, Anthrax, Children of Bodom and MOTORHEAD!

I dont get how you think it embarrasses their lineup?
Its slayer, megadeth, mastadon, zombie, anvil, testament who ALL played in last year`s fest, dont you want some variety? You would be happy with an almost identical lineup from last year?
None of them have even released any new material since the last show!!

I for one am liking the anthrax, devildriver, in flames, KOS, Machinehead, motorhead, kiss, COB, opeth, The sword, and more bands will be added.

I really hope they take the good Sunday T.O. bands and add them to the Sat. MTL show (Slayer, Mastodon, Zombie, Testament). Yeah, we saw them last year but who cares, the lineup as it is needs a boost and this would do the trick.

I'm slightly insane so I probably wouldn't mind spending a load of money only to see Opeth and Motorhead.

The rest I either never listened to, am indifferent about or just don't care.

How sad is it that day 2 is better than day 1?

CoB + Kiss alone >>>>> In flames + Day 1

Billy Talent alone makes day 1 absolutely dreadful. Maybe if they were an opening act but I bet they're borderline headlining.

Any songs to recommend? Will possibly buy tickets just cause of CoB for day two and would like to check out some of their better stuff

Also As I Lay Dying, aren't they a screamo band?
