Chicago Powerfest 2009

I'm hoping to hit up Chicago Powerfest this May if the headliners for the 3rd night are any good. Paganfest II is opening things up on the first day, and that bill sounds fucking stellar, with Moonsorrow, Primordial, Eluveitie and Korpiklaani plus a few more. That should be one hell of a good show. I would have loved to see Ensiferum and Turisas back on the bill from last year, but I really look forward to seeing Moonsorrow, Primordial and Korpiklaani for the first time. And then of course seeing Eluveitie again will be fucking great! I love those guys.

But they just announced the addition of Soil and DevilDriver as being the last 2 bands for the second night, which felt like a kick straight to the nuts. Gah, Soil? SOIL? Seriously?! Last year we had Testament and Iced Earth close out the last 2 nights. And it was Iced Earth's first live show with Matt Barlow back behind the mic. Goddamn was that an exciting show. I suppose DevilDriver should put on an okay show... their new album is... well... not shit. But Soil? Come on now.

Either way, they still have a pretty solid bill with Novembers Doom and Kiuas plus Assailant, Sheephead and Mindwarp Chamber. I'm really hoping the guys in charge of this thing get some good bands to close out the whole shebang. But yeah, should be a good extended weekend of boozing and headbanging with some friends if things pan out. Anyone else plan on hitting up some shows in the near future?

Holy shit, awesome:
