I actually really like Devildriver's latest album, from 2007, and this is coming from someone who hates Dez Fafara. I hear a new one is in the works.
I had no idea who Dez was before DevilDriver, and The Fury of Our Maker's Hand immediately sold me on the band. The Fury is a fucking great album, and the first half of The Last Kind Words is phenomenal.

Also, don't bust on Iced Earth when they're being compared to Soil. Iced Earth is a B-squad metal band, but they still kick the piss out of Soil.

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.
Hell yes dude. I bought tickets for Paganfest II the day the date was posted for the venue. Ensiferum and Turisas were great, but Moonsorrow, Korpiklaani, and Eluveitie make up for it. Let's face it, Eluveitie was the strongest band of Paganfest I. They fucking rule live.

And, to be honest, I'm kind of glad Tyr is off the list. I love those guys, but holy shit, coming on after Eluveitie destroyed them.
