100 bux!! damn

1/26/2005 9:30:10 AM
100 bucks?!!?!?! they better get some more/better headliners

1/26/2005 9:33:10 AM
i would go just to see King Diamond. But him alone isn't worth seeing for a $100.

1/26/2005 9:35:21 AM
hellfest wasn't even $99 and it had a ton more bands, and better bands at that. shitty lineup all together. mnemic, unearth, the red chord, and blood has been shed are the only bands i'd go see.

1/26/2005 9:41:25 AM
second day perhaps

1/26/2005 9:43:17 AM
i would never pay 100 dollars for a show, no matter what band was playing.

1/26/2005 9:59:26 AM
fests are gay

1/26/2005 10:12:11 AM
fck i wanted to go just to visit MA but thats a shitty line-up for 100 bucks.

1/26/2005 10:23:17 AM
King Diamond!?!?!?!?!?! I'm there.

1/26/2005 10:39:27 AM
If cryptopsy and ion dissonance were on the same day I'd go... but I don't feel like paying $70+ for the two bands. I doubt the jewish fcks will even let you buy a 2-day ticket.

1/26/2005 10:40:33 AM
holy fcking obituary!!!!

1/26/2005 10:44:59 AM
I wouldn't mind seeing 8 of those bands too band I'm completely broke.

1/26/2005 10:45:44 AM
I think the line-up is awesome. I'd pay $99, and not think twice.

1/26/2005 10:49:29 AM
this fest is a joke. i went to new england metal and hardcore fest 2001 and 2002 and both were like half as expensive and better than this shit fest.

1/26/2005 11:32:20 AM
where the fck is the autumn offering on this fest???

1/26/2005 11:58:31 AM
Oh snap! Maroon is playing?! Sweet!

1/26/2005 1:00:39 PM
i wanna see BHBS pretty bad

1/26/2005 1:01:41 PM
100 for thoes bands is shit. Hellfest was than much and they had a insane lineup.

1/26/2005 1:11:51 PM
there is gonna be way more bands than this....hopefully the 24th is improved so i can go see evergreen again :D.

1/26/2005 1:44:04 PM
Wanted to see BHBS last year but the fcking power went out and howard left. maybe this year?

1/26/2005 2:07:24 PM
hey dicks. hellfest was less expensive cuz rexplex holds more people. the price has nothing to do with the lineup, but thanks for knowing shit.

1/26/2005 2:31:43 PM
day two is by far the best day, and definitely worth 35 bucks. the whole thing isnt worth 100 though, not yet at least. too bad this is finals week...

1/26/2005 3:22:49 PM
kinda fun i guess..

1/26/2005 3:28:11 PM
The lineup is not solidified there are more bands tba. CANNAE and God Forbid are both playing also

1/26/2005 3:44:04 PM
if i even had the money to get over to europe, i'd so be there.

1/26/2005 4:19:39 PM

1/26/2005 4:28:22 PM
obituary, kylesa, the minor times, sonata arctica, cryptopsy, strapping young lad, behemoth, all shall perish, dark tranquility, king diamond, and nile. throw all the other shit out, and you have somthing worth going to see.

1/26/2005 4:49:40 PM

1/26/2005 5:29:04 PM

1/26/2005 6:05:41 PM
i want to see on broken wings, everytime i die, btbam, converge, daughters, ed gein, for the love of, haste the day, last perfection, nehemiah, the chariot.. among others.. then it will be worth it.

1/26/2005 6:05:44 PM
wow. What a disappointment. Usually a great time (even when the power went out!) And who said anything about Europe?? This is in MA.

1/26/2005 6:06:26 PM

1/26/2005 6:07:53 PM
haha, you said on broken wings!

1/26/2005 6:09:56 PM

1/26/2005 6:10:12 PM

1/26/2005 6:27:27 PM

1/26/2005 6:33:18 PM
i havent paid more than 10 bucks for a show in years! and this wouldnt make me either. besides,im all the way down here in miami,its not worth the trip even for a day.

1/26/2005 6:53:55 PM
jesus christ! - that last day would be the only day worth my time.. but i wouldn't pay $35 to see those bands.. $15 at most..

1/26/2005 6:54:50 PM
... i might actually go

1/26/2005 7:08:07 PM
STEMM? what the fck? theyre shitty nu metal. they use to be good before the singer quit, then the rest of the band quit. now its just the guitar players, and the rest of the band are a joke

1/26/2005 7:11:04 PM
eeeh waste of money

1/26/2005 7:49:10 PM
On Broken Wings? Hahaha. Obituary would eat those fckin' pussies if they showed up.

1/26/2005 9:31:15 PM
i would go if dep and etid were there

1/27/2005 12:02:29 AM
fck yeah i would pay $100 just to see 15 of those bands . . .

1/27/2005 3:15:17 AM

1/27/2005 9:18:38 AM
5 bands I'd see....100 bucks can suck the hairs off my ass cheeks

1/27/2005 2:19:03 PM
only reason to go is to see Lord Worm in Cryptopsy with their drummer's new double blast beats. Kill. Me. Now. Please. I'm. Stupid. And. Gay. For. Coming. Here.

1/27/2005 7:17:53 PM
HOLY HELL you guys are picky. i know a $100 dollars is alot, but what music DO you like??

1/28/2005 4:05:02 PM
hahahahaha, internal bleeding is playing?!?!?! how gay, that band is possibily the worst band ever on the planet. and fck soilwork too... those guys suck.

1/30/2005 7:35:19 PM
fck that noise... ne metal fest is lame anyway, stage barriers, douche secutiry, Soilwork.. i mean fck all that noise.

2/1/2005 1:42:05 PM
This is what this stupid metalcore scene boils down to. Bands think because they're immitating something on mtv2 that they should be paid a rediculous amount of money even though they suck.
