Where's the metal bands?

anonymous 9/15/2013 8:35:05 AM

That would have exactly been my question. Read the band list until the end: no metal bands!

anonymous 9/15/2013 8:59:09 AM

Emmure should be on thi....

anonymous 9/15/2013 9:23:35 AM

Ohhhhh, so because some pretentious f a g g o t s have a literacy problem, all of a sudden there aren't any metal bands? Get off your high horse and sck a dck. Plenty of metal at this festival, sorry if it's TOO SCENE for some of you introverted, antisocial scumfcks :)

anonymous 9/15/2013 9:25:15 AM

Sucks to be Sevendust.

anonymous 9/15/2013 9:37:00 AM

I am a gay with bad eyesight and i read the list and saw no metal bands... maybe transgenders who have transgender fans who want to believe they're metal and not a crap trend.

anonymous 9/15/2013 9:44:52 AM

I will add to this by saying this is not metal. Shame on the fest for using that name.

anonymous 9/15/2013 9:48:43 AM

As if the world needed another reason to stay away from wisconsin

anonymous 9/15/2013 9:56:19 AM

Can't believe sevendust is still a band

What, no Wayne Static performing Wisconsin Death Trip while his porn star wife shakes her junkie t-ts on stage?

anonymous 9/15/2013 11:16:27 AM

Milwaukee metal fest 15 years ago > this

anonymous 9/15/2013 11:23:40 AM

Ash Alvidsen is setting up these "metal fests" all over the country to try and monopolize the metal scene even more. I think Wisconsin metal fest should probably have some bands from Wisconsin on it, and some metal bands, not just Sumerian's flavor of the week.

anonymous 9/15/2013 11:25:17 AM

anonymous1 hour ago Sucks to be Sevendust. Yes, it does...because they're an awful bunch of has-beens.

anonymous 9/15/2013 11:33:01 AM

Wisconsin No Metalfest

anonymous 9/15/2013 11:49:41 AM

You can't have a "1st annual."

anonymous 9/15/2013 12:12:06 PM

Wisconsin rules, fck the haters. With that said, this fest contains no metal bands, and is an insult to the old Milwaukee Metalfest that was a fcking Mecca of the U.S. metal scene for as long as it was. Whoever set this up should be killed.

anonymous 9/15/2013 12:12:34 PM

Micawber should've been on this! Pure Wisconsin Metal !

anonymous 9/15/2013 12:33:00 PM

Ash monopolizing the industry. He can't be the promoter, so he uses local area promoters to do the work, while he takes all the cash in the end to pay out the bands and he takes the backend. If a promoter is also the bands booking agent, manager, AND promoter, it's completely illegal. Also, he basically tells these promoters that if you don't do things his way, they won't get tour packages from him or Pantheon anymore.

anonymous 9/15/2013 12:33:37 PM

Promoters are basically fcked as they have no choice but to work with him, or be black listed by Pantheon. Hence why Cali Metalfest is shot. Promoter for the show has to basically make 40+ locals sell 80+ tickets at $40 each to try to make any money for the larger bands playing. The metal / scenecore industry is fcked because of politics like this.

anonymous 9/15/2013 12:33:52 PM

Everyone looking for a fcking handout, all while the big dogs step on everyone to make enough money to pay for their Wilshire based office and to give %50 of their money to LOG's lawyer / Sumerian co-owner and the REAL money behind Ash's "hard work".

anonymous 9/15/2013 1:09:19 PM

This has gone too far. Anyone want to go protest Sumerian Records angry Arab style?

anonymous 9/15/2013 1:48:49 PM

Bravo, you called all that right on Ash and this scummy backroom bullshit that passes itself off as a business.

anonymous 9/15/2013 1:59:41 PM

Hardcore is all about making money anyway, that's why most new hardcore bands act like rapper sages

SuckMeBeautiful 9/15/2013 2:23:55 PM

By far the most "metal" fest I've seen recently. Keep it br00dal bros!

Hibuddywazup 9/15/2013 2:37:37 PM

All these bands should be Dimebagged.

anonymous 9/15/2013 2:47:55 PM

How about ---- Metalcore Fest? I don't see any metal bands on this list and I don't see any hardcore bands.

anonymous 9/15/2013 3:00:25 PM

so Vildhjarta isn't a metal band now? Ok

anonymous 9/15/2013 4:12:05 PM

Wisconsin was a fcking mecca for metal and hardcore, I cannot believe my eyes. Whatever happened to Robotmoshfest?

anonymous 9/15/2013 4:15:36 PM

this is a fcking disgrace to what was the milwaukee metal scene

carveyournamein 9/15/2013 5:42:02 PM


anonymous 9/15/2013 6:02:32 PM

this is fcking terrible.

brokenhero 9/15/2013 6:14:42 PM

i'm home. leave it to me (LEAVE IT TO ME NOW THAT YOU'VE SEEN)

shreves 9/15/2013 10:58:32 PM

I see ya got snakes and sparklers.... where's the good stuff?

anonymous 9/16/2013 6:46:48 AM

world's worst tour + every sumerian rec band + a few shitty locals = hey guys, FEST!

anonymous 9/16/2013 8:15:40 AM

worst lineup ever for a Metalfest

anonymous 9/16/2013 9:59:56 AM

Sumerian Fest #2,134,89

anonymous 9/16/2013 10:19:10 AM

How the fck is Oceano not metal? Almost all of these bands are amazing. I'm going

anonymous 9/16/2013 8:06:42 PM

At least the shitty Ohio one managed to scrounge enough pocket change to book what's left of Sepultura, your fcking fest has jerk Ving Rames looking dude, and the rest of Oceano heading. Wisconsin should do itself a favor and go back to being musically fcking irrelevant.

anonymous 9/16/2013 8:50:02 PM

Musically fcking irrelevant? Is that a joke? http://en.wikipedia.org/wi ki/Robot_Mosh_Fest

anonymous 9/16/2013 8:51:25 PM

Learn up some you ignorant fck

brokenhero 9/17/2013 7:35:23 PM

the robot mosh fests kicked ass

anonymous 9/17/2013 9:00:58 PM

LOL look at all the butthurt 80s metal douchebags crying about this festival. It's called making business. Life ALSO fcks you over, so get the fck over it. Little do you guys know this is 2-4 separate tours scheduled for the same venue. Veil of Maya, Born of Osiris, AND Winds Of Plague played Robot Mosh Fest in the past. Oh and all of the bands on here are part of SUBGENRES of the primary "Metal" genre. Metal is just a broader speculation of distorted guitars, etc.

anonymous 9/18/2013 9:12:28 AM

^ this guy...is fuucking retarded.

anonymous 10/7/2013 11:23:31 AM


anonymous 10/26/2013 1:28:23 PM

Well if you all would have supported the old metal bands, Metalcore and Deathcore wouldn't have taken over... but don't sit and bitch about there being no metal and how your not going... That's great more room for the rest of us who enjoy the music. Glad I won't be seeing you there
