Impossible Decisions

Well, the schedule for the Scion Rock Fest has leaked and, as is to be expected at any festival featuring so many killer bands, there will be some very difficult choices to make. So break out your heavy metal day-planners and start penciling in your plan of attack.

The major overlap between Toxic Holocaust and Withered is stressing me, and navigating between Krallice, High On Fire and WITTR will take some nimble feet, solid clock management and a strong bladder. All in all I can't complain though, I will get to see at least some of every band I'm going to see. Can't ask for much better than that with 34 bands and four stages in one day.

Schedule is not confirmed as official, but this source has yet to be wrong about anything related to this fest. Of course, I'm sure all the standard disclaimers about schedule/lineup being subject to change can and will apply.

Masked Terror priorities bolded below. And yes, I am prepared for Neurosis/Pig Destroyer/Converge disciples to call me out on my heresy. Honorable mention to Zoroaster and Warbringer for just missing the cutoff.
