It’s about two months until the Gothenburg metalfestival Metaltown starts, and so far the lineup is pretty weak. There are a few promising gigs like Opeth (played at the festival before), Meshuggah, Napalm Death and Municipal Waste. But thats about it.
One can understand that most of the money has gone to get big names like Slipknot and Marilyn Manson, but I really hope they can add more interesting names. A Swedish band like WOLF would be great (I know they are able/willing to come), or more unknown bands like Trident, In Solitude, Death Breath, Sonic Ritual, Necrophopic, Bastard Priest, Gravehammer, Agrimonia… hell the list could go on.
