Hey guys, I'm finally going to Europe to see my first real metal festival. Just bought tickets today. Which of these bands should I absolutely not miss?

I'm most excited for Emperor, The Ocean, Anathema, Destruction, Hypocrisy, and the Diablo Swing Orchestra.

Damn, that's quite the lineup.

I would seriously recommend checking out Batushka, Saor, and Zuriaake. Also, if you somehow don't already know Taake, you should, they're great live as well.

I already listen to Batushka and Saor and am really psyched to see both. Never heard of Zuriaake though. I'll check them out. And after all the controversy with Taake recently, I don't know if I wanna sit through their set.

With Heart Towards None and Exercises In Futility are two of my favorite albums ever.

Well then, get onto Zuriaake. Black metal with well-integrated Chinese folk music.

When you say the part about Chinese folk music something went off in my head. It may have been a different band but there was a black metal band I found one day that fits that description and I listened to all their stuff in one day. It was good.

They're the best and most well known of the small number of bands that do that.  Unless you're thinking of Chthonic, who also mix a lot of BM with chinese folk.  They're fun, but not great, because they mix it with the more gothic/generic variant of black metal.

EDIT: Listening to some of these bands again, I should note that the Chinese influence on Zuriaake's first album is much stronger. It's not as strong on their second album, but it's still a great album.

I've been listening to Exercises in Futility a lot. Haven't even made it to any of their other albums yet. Yeah, Mgla is great. Reminds me a lot of Dissection.

I also really like Kriegsmachine. The album they released last year is phenomenal.
