Rob Dukes of EXODUS has posted the following update:
"Wacken 2008... I came from behind the curtain to see before me 75,000 people with their hands in the air. And screaming. It was fucking surreal. I was overwhelmed by the whole experience. Honestly, I don't remember much of anything in particular except seeing 5 to 10,000 people going into the pit and killing each other almost made me forget to sing; it was crazy.
"Three years ago I was just a guitar tech, not even trying to be in a band. I was happy surfing and just living. Now my life is just crazy, making records and touring the world and getting to play shows like Wacken. I truly am grateful for that has befallen on me, good and bad.
"I'm in Spain right now playing a festival with OVERKILL and CRADLE OF FILTH and looking forward to killing this crowd tonight. I just spent two days on the beach in Spain and I feel completely rejuvenated.
"Thanks to all the fans that make all the noise and a special thanks to all the crazy fuckers in the pits around the world."
