      They should add Artic Monkeys to the bill considering their recently recognized "metal" status.

      They actually announced this at a concert in Pacific Junction about three weeks ago, but with Suicidal Tendencies instead of The Urge and Prong. It's gonna be a pretty awesome concert.

      There's also a second Knotfest in Wisconsin that was announced today, but it has a bigger lineup than the Iowa one.

      I hope Slipknot play their music a bit faster than before. One of the recent concerts, after Gray's death, the songs were played slowly, no energy. The new album should, hopefully, get their old energy back like when they headlined in Downloads. That was good.

      Makes me wish I lived in Iowa. Oh well, I just gotta wait till Mayhem Fest to see Slipknot. Although, I'd love to see Deftones live.
