Soundwave 2012 lineup announced!

Featuring a few of the cancelled Soundwave Revolution refugees and a slew of metal and rock bands (as well as one well-past-their-prime rap-rock band), the lineup for Soundwave 2012 has dropped and boy, it's a big one.

With the legendary System of a Down headlining, the lineup has other highlights such as masked metal gods Slipknot, goth rocker Marilyn Manson, the Courtney Love fronted Hole, Zakk Wylde's Black Label Society, masters of concept metal Mastodon and Welsh rockers Lostprophets. It also features the group oft-rumored to be the demise for Soundwave Revolution, Limp Bizkit. Full line up below!
