    I'd go for Freak Kitchen if there were 9 shitty bands.

    And once again, Nevermore bails on the fest, and we get one hell of an upgrade. I think Jorn is going to slay. Special set of stuff from ALL the different things he's done. His new cd slays as well. Of course, everything after FK will be just be icing on the cake......

    J-Dubya - FK campaigner for years! Finally, a victory!

    Last night I read an interview about how he left the Yngwie tour. That makes for an interesting read, and if theres one thing I got out of it its that I'll never think of Yngwie the same again.

    I read an interview from Jorn's perspective, but I'm always hesitant to judge in cases like this because it's unlikely we'll ever hear all the facts.

    Beyond Twilight had a difficult parting with Jorn as well and he allegedly said some pretty silly stuff in some interviews (that he wrote all their music I think).

    That's so cool, except the fact that everybody lacks musical intelligence except your band. Something tells me you live in a musical shithole... At least people make a bit of sense around here.

    I'm not trying to be a dick, because if you are excited about this, then i'm very happy for you. However, without the bands playing, it is nothing more than Karaoke or a cover band featuring Jorn on vocals.

    There's a band called Torture Killer who started off as a Six Feet Under cover band. Stop with the "SFU SUX0RZ!!!11one" comments and listen... er... read my point. They decided to write original songs, but they were still very much in the vein of/influenced by SFU. With their latest album, they got Chris Barnes to sing on it. This seems sad to me. A SFU cover band that just happens to have the vocalist of SFU... that doesn't make it anymore than a cover band still. To me, this seems to be what is going to happen when Jorn sings other songs. It's not going to be Ark or Masterplan... it's going to be cover songs.

    All that said, have fun man. woot.

    you know, you are right of course. but what makes people actually give a damn about Ark or Masterplan.... fair bet it's Jørn's vox.

    Agreed completely [After some thought, i added the edit below]. And i will say that given the circumstances, Glenn did a hell of a job getting a replacement. However, i was hoping for something darker. But last time i checked, he didn't put on this fest to please me... haven't figured out why not yet... he fucking should. Asshole :lol:

    Edit: Actually, i've decided i disagree. Sure, that may be what drew people to the band or whatnot, but in the case of Masterplan, that's basically Grapow's band. Without Roland, it's just not the same. Come on, it's like saying Russel singing symphony x songs with another band is the same because most people listen to symphony x for russel.

    Tarot or Testament would have been better. Or obituary. That would have slayed.

    Not intending to toot my horn, just sharing. My roommate is a fairly religious Catholic, and she decided to give up cursing for Lent. To support her, I (and my friend) decided to do the same even though I am a horrible human being in the religion department. It's amazing how bad I am when it comes to cursing, and I didn't even realize it until today. In a twenty minute span we kept on having to pause and rethink what we were going to say, or correct each other or ourselves if something slipped. This is going to be a looooong 40 days lol. If anyone picks up on me cussing here quote it and make me feel guilty about it please, thanks in advance. :)

    Well, this was just made a few minutes ago. I put it on the "advertise my band" thread, but for the sake of Argument, the new link in my sig is living proof.

    Lol, glad to hear you liked it. Too bad the solo battle got cut off, as did the Outro, which is awesome also.
