3/15/2005 5:43:01 PM
that is BULLSHIT that shadowsfall is above in flames, i don't care how numetal in flames is now.

3/15/2005 5:52:22 PM
going for hot topic stage alone

3/15/2005 6:01:00 PM
All things considering, this isn't that bad. Not nearly as bad as I thought it would be anyhow.

3/15/2005 6:04:44 PM
Iron Maiden's set will only be songs from their first 4 albums...this is all that matters!!! will definately be there

3/15/2005 6:06:40 PM
a dozen furies is fcking rad. and im glad this is more metal this year. im pissed killswitch and shadows fall are on mainstage, other bands on hot topic are way better.

3/15/2005 6:13:42 PM
second stage and preteen breasts, fck yeah

3/15/2005 6:27:03 PM
fcking gay the utah show is at a sit down only venue

3/15/2005 6:27:41 PM

3/15/2005 6:34:01 PM
Better line up than I expected. I might actually go.

3/15/2005 6:56:33 PM
What are you guys talking about? This is fcking terrible. Shitfest '05.

3/15/2005 7:14:40 PM
wow. completely fcking terrible. wouldn't go even if it meant passing up on seeing said "preteen breasts". </sarcasm>

3/15/2005 7:17:17 PM
hahaha, every time i read it, it looks like a Dozen Fluries.... crap though. why can't this shit stay nu-metal like it used to be *bes awaiting more Hellfest info. furiously*

3/15/2005 7:47:36 PM
Maiden and Mastodon are the only good things.

3/15/2005 8:10:49 PM
It Dies Today?? Bury your Dead??? What is this coming to?

3/15/2005 8:18:46 PM
a dozen furry animals-mtv realty show winners? hot topic second stage? bury your dead? it dies today? at least throwdown isn't playing.

3/15/2005 8:19:48 PM
This could very possibly rule.

3/15/2005 8:26:16 PM
oh man.. i cant wait to not go to this.

3/15/2005 8:27:32 PM
this would have been the ultimate show for me, if it would have been like this 2 yrs ago, me= bored of metalcore

3/15/2005 8:30:53 PM
hahaha, holy gay. last year was better than this.

3/15/2005 8:42:34 PM
holy gay. no dice ever

3/15/2005 9:08:27 PM
Is everyone just oblivious to the fact that Iron Maiden is playing? Who gives a shit about the rest of the bands. except maybe BDM.

3/15/2005 9:22:10 PM
better than i expected.. it's like a big hardcore show now.. last year was fun.. now this year just has less shitty bands like fckin devildriver and otep.. god they suck.

3/15/2005 9:22:32 PM
maiden, bdm, arch enemy, in flames, and the haunted are the only worth while bands...

3/15/2005 9:36:04 PM
no slipknot and no hatebreed = better than last year.

3/15/2005 9:38:37 PM
Ozzy needs

3/15/2005 10:13:29 PM
I thought for sure you guys would complain about this one but wow was I wrong,I personally have no interest,maybre killswitch thats is

3/15/2005 10:19:21 PM
no go............

3/15/2005 10:40:24 PM
8/27 Woodlands, TX Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion i work at the pavilion. so i guess i will be there....working

3/15/2005 10:52:04 PM
no slipknot and no hatebreed = better than last year.

3/15/2005 11:06:16 PM
what happenned to ANTHRAX???!!!

3/15/2005 11:34:43 PM
anthrax.... well i guess they wont be bringin' the noise

3/15/2005 11:38:33 PM
crapfest. wont be there.

3/16/2005 12:03:15 AM
god idiots, are you kidding?? if hatebreed and slipknot were there it would be so much better. get fcked.

3/16/2005 12:10:40 AM
Wow, if this would've happened a couple years before Soilwork, IN FLames, and Arch ENemy all started sucking, it'd actually be cool. Still, BDM, Mastodon and some decent stuff actually helps make it only about 50% shit.

3/16/2005 12:22:46 AM
*realizes how big killswitch has gotten*...Wow their playin right b4 iron maiden!!!!!

3/16/2005 2:05:07 AM
not bad....except for the 20 dollar beers, and black label society should be fcking great

3/16/2005 2:27:50 AM
Iron Maiden is more than enough of a reason to go. You guys need to shut your mouths and go to see where metal began. Black Sabbath and Maiden still are the best.

3/16/2005 2:59:44 AM
uhh.. killswitch and shadows fall playing the main stage over IN FLAMES, SOILWORK, and THE HAUNTED.

3/16/2005 2:59:56 AM
despite how shitty those bands have become, it's just fcking ridiculous that the imitators have superceded the originators.

3/16/2005 3:56:07 AM
i really dont know how to feel about this...ozzfest and hellfest should stay as far away from eachother as humanly possoible.

3/16/2005 7:14:17 AM
im actually thinking of leaving before black sabbath,iron maiden alone is worth going for,cant wait to see them

3/16/2005 7:51:35 AM
where's megadeth?:(

3/16/2005 8:28:29 AM
I stopped going to these in '99. The novelty of seeing Black Sabbath live wore off and most of the bands are teh poop.

3/16/2005 10:48:22 AM
wow.... bury your dead has sunk to an all time low

3/16/2005 12:58:17 PM
IRON fckING MAIDEN is worth all of my time on that day.....stop your bitching winey kids and go do your hair

3/16/2005 2:00:09 PM
A Dozen Furies was already on Ozzfest a while ago as a shitty nu metal band called Unloco. I guess they are going the popular metalcore route now since nu metal failed.

3/16/2005 2:55:58 PM
i definitely intend to go to see Iron Maiden/In Flames/Shadows Fall/The Black Dahlia Murder/It Dies Today/ The Haunted/Killswitch Engage/ Bury Your Dead/Mastodon/As I Lay Dying/Soilwork

3/16/2005 10:10:14 PM
humm it dies today and bury your dead.... its starting to look like a 1 day hellfest...i think ill wait till those bands go on tour

3/17/2005 8:47:35 AM
Second stage = Shitty metal and breakdowns. Minus BDM, Mastodon, The Haunted and BYD.

3/17/2005 7:24:40 PM
a dozen "fluries" are a bunch of gay fcking mtv reality show winning poster boys. nuff said. will be there for byd.bdm,idt, and mastodon

3/17/2005 9:31:08 PM
yeah, it does suck that the utah show is in seats but fck it, Maiden is going to be there

3/18/2005 10:39:09 PM
on the official site KsE is listed as playing under Zombie......

3/19/2005 1:52:30 AM
Looks like fun. Minus Rob Zombie, that's so fcking laughable.

3/19/2005 3:15:01 AM
fck that tour, sounds of the underground looks better... and who cares about either of em.. hellfest tour next year muahahaha
