This year’s WACKEN OPEN AIR is getting into the final planning stages. The line-up is more or less fixed, and the running order is set as well. While Thursday features the more traditional Metal or Rock bands, already Friday offers a couple of bands more than relevant to our readers, as we will witness the return of CELTIC FROST, whose reunion-album was a passionately debated item, the only German reunion-show of New York Hardcore / Thrash Legend CARNIVORE, as well as NEVERMORE or the Occult successor LEGION OF THE DAMNED. Saturday’s highlight will of course be – besides the performance of MORBID ANGEL with David Vincent – the return of EMPEROR whose Inferno Festival setlist looked very promising for all those who still consider their "In The Nightside Eclipse" / "Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk" era as milestones of music history. Some minor changes have happened to the parking and camping-system at the festival site. For more detailed news, please check our tourdates section and the official festival homepage: www.wacken.com
