Black Breath and Repulsion are the only bands worth seeing. This should have been a lot better of a line-up for a riff fest.

Line up fucking rocks. I didn't even know From Ashes Rise was still together, let alone playing shows... Repulsion, Trap Them, Nails, Coliseum, Black Breath.

Shit, I'd go if weren't all the way across the country.

REPULSION

idk the rest though, other than i've heard the name corrosion of conformity. I'm sure if this happens yearly, it'll turn into a mediocre scenefest.

What a bummer name for a music fest.
From Ashes Rise and Repulsion would be sick though.
Have fun L.A.

It's free, so I wouldn't complain.

No shit, Goatsnake has been around for a while and they have some serious riffs. I wish I could go to this! To see Goatsnake would be awesome! Scion is at again, that is awesome.
