Download festival 2012 gets MORE bands!

At this rate, the other summer Rock festivals should call it a day.

Download, which already has the likes of Metallica, The Prodigy, Black Sabbath (Although…), Chase & Status, Biffy Clyro, Soundgarden, Machine Head, Tenacious D, You Me At Six, Devin Townsend Project, the reformed Little Angels and Trivium playing have announced another 14 heavy hitters.

How do Megadeth, Slash & Myles Kennedy, Black Label Society, Kyuss Lives!, the mighty Steel Panther, As I Lay Dying, Billy Talent, Rise Against, Fear Factory, Five Finger Death Punch, Terrorvision, Periphery, Ginger Wildheart and gloriously retro Swedish glamsters, Reckless Love grab you?
