The perdition of nordic beliefs and the prevalence of Christendom. Superstitions to be replaced by equally irrational superstitions. The destruction of a culture at hands of the mercyful. Non nobis, Domine, sed nomini tuo da gloriam

One man rode the way through the woods down to asa bay
where dragon ships had sailed to sea more times than one could say
to see with own eyes the wonder people told of from man to man
the god of all almightyness had arrived from a foreign land
The rumours told of a man who had come from the other side the seas
carrying gold cross around neck in chain and spoke in strange tongue of peace
he had come with strange men in armour dressed in purple shirts and lace
smelling not of beer but flowers and with no hair in face
And the bold man carrying cross had told all one of asa bay
the god of all man woman child had come to them all save
and to thank lord of heaven one should build to god a house
and to save one's soul from hell one should be baptised and say vows
A man of pride with the hammer told new god to build his house on own
and spoke loud of the gods of their fathers not too long time gone
the rumours said the man with a beard like fire and the hammer in chain
by men in armour silenced was and by their swords was slain
Those who did not pay the one coin of four to man of new god
whipped was twenty and put in chains then locked by their neck to the log (to the log...)
and so all of asa bay did build a house of the cross
every hour of daylight they did sweat limbs ached because faith does cost
And on the day two hundred there it stood white to the sky
the house of the god of the cross big enough to take two dragon ships inside
and all of asa bay did watch the wonder raise to the sky
now must the god of the cross be pleased and satisfied
Just outside the circle of the crowd one old man did stand
he looked across the waters and blotted the sun out of his eyes with one hand
and his old eyes could almost see the dragon ships set sail
and his old ears could almost hear men of great numbers call out oden's hail
And though he did know already though he turned face towards sky
and whispered silent words forgotten spoken only way up high
now this house of a foreign god does stand now must they leave us alone
still he heard from somewhere in the woods old crow of wisdom say
...people of asa land, it's only just begun...

I love that festival. Saw Dio there in 2006 (?). Glad I was able to see him before he died. Was a great show and festival!!

I try to go there every year if possible. Dio was in 2005 or 2006 indeed. That was a great show. I nearly missed it, and I'm glad I didn't because I don't think he ever managed to come back to Belgium before he died.

2013's haedliner for the festival is Iron Maiden, so I'm definitely not missing it this year!
Except for Iron Maiden, the other 22 bands that have already signed up are:
In Flames, Stone Sour, Parkway Drive, Saxon, Coal Chamber, Epica, Kreator, Mayhem, The Devil Wears Prada, Dark Funeral, Absu, God Seed, Every Time I Die, Winterfylleth, Lock Up, Aura Noir, After The Burial, Dunderbeist, Between The Buried And Me, Bullet, Heavens Basement, Hacktivist

Nothing spectacular there, but some rather good bands.
