i'll stick a full review in presently but here's a few lines on potential avalancher interest bands at what for we was a truly fantastic few days, roasting sunshine, well organised, good company, liver abusing oblivion.

carcass - top sound but workmanlike, meant a lot to a lot of people there who hadn't seen them before. no exhume to consume Shocked the ken owen show was... sad
mayhem - raw and chaotic theatrics, attila as ss priest stylee
treponem pal - effective but rockier than i remembered from back in the day
watain - the best of the black, relentless and filthy
ministry - al looked like the industrial ozzy (not a good thing) but performance was good if short
slayer - old men pacing themselves but they have THE songs
motorhead - again a pretty slower paced set with some longer old songs, but throw in scantily clad women and everyone's happy
morbid angel - had forgotten just what a vicious proposition they were, new stuff sounded good too
obituary - took a while to get in the groove but riff after riff after riff...
origin - the bass player made me reassess my whole playing career, never seen anything like the speed
year of no light - probably via mention here checked them, awesome, the notorious "post metal" done with the searing roar of early COL

and many more

On the strength of the CoL comment I suppose I better check this bunch out again but having tried their mysapce I really thought they were the epitome of "meh" ...

did you catch french band Punish Yourself? They're friends of mine and during the 1st song, the singer attempted an unfortunate stage diving, fell on the security stuff and break 5 ribs... good job

i certainly did, my friend recommended them after a bit of pre-trip research and we enjoyed them a lot as something somewhat in contrast to the core of the festival. it turned into a pretty brutal rave based upon their kmfdm styings, but i wasnt aware of that incident - he carried on! Chatting to locals after it seemed they were held in good respect (unlike a lot of what they admitted were largely generic french bands) but then it was off to Ministry!

I was pretty impressed by their Roadburn performance this year. Bought the record and it couldindeed not hold up to the live set.
