When I sit back and think about it, I have seen almost all of these bands on one event or another over the years and think this is a pretty strong offering. The main stage should be an earthquake zone by the looks of it, and while we still wish that Behemoth were able to appear, there is certainly plenty of other stuff to keep us entertained. I plan on hitting the PNC Bank Arts Center show in Holmdel, NJ as its the most convenient for me to attend. Are you folks going? If so what are you most excited about and where will you be seeing it?

Now with all of the amazing bands participating on this show, the card carrying Metal fan should have at least three or four of the bands most recent albums but if they need some help here are a bunch of links in Amazon.com to help them decide how best to spend that Metal disposable cash.
