I would love to go to this and almost any other year, I probably would have. It's just not in the cards this year.

I actually wanted to and was planning on it but Scorpions is the same night here in Chicago and all the bands I want to see are playing on the friday night. Saturday is a collection of bands I have zero interest in so I am passing this year.

I'm coming back from vacation that weekend, so I can't do it. Great lineup though.

Hah, I'm in the same boat. I actually bought a ticket but now it's looking like I won't make it out there. Oh well...at least I supported the fest with my ticket purchase, I guess.

ahahahahaha....I have unfortunatly have seen them before at DRI / Diamond Plate at Bobby McGee's last December. Terrible band. Dont know why they got booked for the pre-show at WOM fest....this would be a reason not to go to it.

good crack on Simon though too.

LOL - They are nice kids though.....
We played with their other band CLOCK TOWER at that Sanctuary show.
It was funny. They were deciding backstage whether to go out and do a Smash Potater set or a Clock Tower set.

who cares if they are nice kids or not....they play shit music with zero skills. Dont know why a fest would book them because no one would travel 3 states away for them. You would be better off booking a local that would draw.

You are usually better at detecting sarcasm.

Wow, they just confirmed ATTACKER for 2013.
I have to admit, I seriously thought they were a Ragnarokkr contender for 2013.

Looks like we may not be able to have the OVERLORDE (NJ) VS OVERLORDE S.R. battle to the death after all!!!

Man, between that fest and MDF, a lot of contenders for Ragnarokkr are being picked up by competition.

Well, I agree with Simon here.
It's just a lot of bands who COULD be good fits.
There are plenty of bands so hopefully all fests will prosper!

Which was my point and Bob knows it. He just had to put his two cents in.

WoM tried to get a couple of my bands to perform at the festival last year, but it didn't work out.
