Only how many days to the Download Festival????
Actually, I don't know, but the line-up is filling out. There's just been another announcement ofandeight more bands, namely:

Lawnmower Deth
Dir En Grey
Five Finger Death Punch

So looking forward to some prog rock/jazz fusuion with werewolf singing thrown in at Opeth. Never heard of the rest of them, but some of the Download gang are gettingandvery excited at the prospect of Lawnmower Deth.

Cowboy Dave points out their 'classic' songs include the niftly titled:

Spook perv happenings in the snooker hall.
Sumo Rabbit and his inescapable trap of doom.
Satan's Trampoline.
Icky Ficky.
Betty Fords Clinic.and

If my maths is right, the Download line-up is up at forty acts, and I've certainly ticked off Faith No More (reforming for this festival - yesssss!), Korn, Limp Bizkit, Motley Crue, Marilyn Manson, The Prodigy, Def Leppard, Whitesnake,andand ZZ Top among the headliners; as well as Dream Theater, Killswitch Engage, Chris Cornell, Papa Roach, Lucana Coil, Journey, Anvil, and Clutch (and Clutch!!! How can you say 'and Clutch' ) among the rest of those playing. Oh, and now Opeth. Promises to be a mighty fine festival, I tell you. Mighty fine.
