Wacken 2012 bill taking shape

Blabbermouth.net reports that the bill for Wacken 2012, the legendary German metal festival, is coming together quite nicely.

The fest runs from August 2 to 4 next year and currently looks like this:

AMON AMARTH
AXEL RUDI PELL
CRADLE OF FILTH
DARK FUNERAL
DIMMU BORGIR
ENDSTILLE
FORBIDDEN
GAMMA RAY
HAMMERFALL
HENRY ROLLINS (spoken word)
IN EXTREMO
MINISTRY
MOONSPELL
NAPALM DEATH
PARADISE LOST
SCORPIONS
SICK OF IT ALL
SIX FEET UNDER
U.D.O.
WATAIN
WINTERFYLLETH

Norwegian Black Metal at it's most corpse-paintedly demented

That’s Dark Funeral, as opposed to ‘Light, Happy, Cheery Funeral’, I guess.

Throwing up the horns (quite literally) for 25 years

Expect Wacken to have sold out by the end of the year, as it so often does – a European festival which has none of the hype of a Glastonbury or Reading yet manages to sell in excess of seventy thousand tickets every year, well in advance of the event.

But, being a Metal event, that’s not a news story.  Figures.
