Schedule of Festivals coming up worldwide

I've been busier and lazier at the same time lately so this blog after starting with a bang has slowed down a little... I've got no work today and might not for a couple so I'm getting back to business on it. Expect a couple uploads and don't forget to check this blog regularly.

To prove that I'm not totally lazy I'm gonna post a list that I compiled of various metal festivals around the world. this is by no means comprehensive and I haven't kept up in a few weeks but it should give you a taste of how much Europe kicks America's ass when it comes to metal festivals. some of these have since had a number of bands added.
