So glad im moving to Sweden in august! I will definately make it to Euroblast!

What about AFTER THE BURIALl???
I´ve heard the will play an exclusive show in Germany this fall, but I can´t find any infos about that! -.-
Coulde definitely be a rumour for the upcoming Euroblast Announcement, I guess.

Periphery? Where art thou? If they should join in this epic Germany quest, than this man's fate is sealed.

Oh yeahh, in my mind I was still thinking Steph was in the band.

I was still under the belief that Exivious was over -- cool to see they are back at it (minus Stef)!

Why can't they bring this to the U.S and call it "Ameriblast" ?? Killer Fuckin Line-Up, I can't even come close to thinking of that much talent on 1 Stage in the History Of Metal !!

Yeah, I'm bummed too.
Living up here in Alaska really ruins my total desire to attend these festivals.

That's an awesome way to explain your excitement.

benanne hurt my feelings :<

At least Panzerballett are among the returning bands, their's was the best gig in 2011 \m/

We will always have between 10-25% returning Bands. It adds to the Family vibe, it allows the bands to meet again and spend quality time together Smile. It's also amazing to see the development of some bands over the years.

*punches TGP in his feelings*

*pets benanne*

Its gonna be my first time going to EB, and I`m glad that`ll get a chance to see some old ones.

I count 7 returning bands out of 32 so far. But I suppose the other 25 bands aren't worthwhile? Tongue

Hey cool, lets have the same bands play at the Euroblast over and over again...

Ummmmmmm.... I just jizzed my pants. You lucky people. *Shakes Fist*

Oh nice, they even got Destrage. Those guys are awesome. I so hope I'll make it this time. Still want to punch myself for not being able to attend last year.

It's a song by John Browne of Monuments. The Euroblast guys might release it some time soon (if their first-wave youtube-teaser get's 10.000 views if I remember correctly...).

I'm so glad I bought an early bird Laughing out loud can't wait for the other bands to be announced...
what song is that awesome guitar-riff from?

Excellent selection of bands. Now I'm waiting for the last announcement (announcements?) to finish me like if this was Mortal Komat

Thank you for doing this!!! thats why we do it. We want you to believe in us Smile

Not regretting having bought Early Bird tickets AT ALL!

UKTMF is cooool! And has 13 bands playing that played last Euroblast Wink

Lol that's like 80% of the UK Tech Fest line up that I'm also attending.
