Redemption (USA) with new vocalist, Tom Englund
Should be interesting. I have enjoyed Redemption's live performances in the past.
Labyrinth (band) (Italy) "Return to Heaven Denied" part I in its entirety
This is the only Labyrinth disc I own, so I suppose this is a good thing.
Bloodbound (Sweden)
Not a fan.
Persefone (Andorra)
Very cool. I enjoy most of their discs, and their latest seems to be their best.
MANIMAL (Sweden)
Love their latest record. Their material should be fun live.
Tarja Turunen (Finland)
I like the first three Nightwish discs. I assume she won't play much from them, however.
Alestorm (Multi-national)
Not a fan.
VUUR (The Netherlands)
Have only heard part of one song. Love Nighttime Birds, but that is about it for me with Anneke.
Soen (Sweden)
Could be cool. I dig most of their albums.
Eclipse (Sweden) *US Exclusive
This could be a ton of fun.
Triosphere (Norway)
Love their last album. Their other material is good too.
Ross The Boss Band - Manowar set (USA)
Gloryhammer (multinational)
Not for me.
Nocturnal Rites - The Official Site (Sweden)
I own a few NR discs, but I don't care if I see them live. I cannot recall if I caught a bit of their set at Chicago Powerfest or not.
Voyager Australia
Fun band. Have seen them twice at PPUSA though.
Cellar Darling (Switzerland)
Have not heard.
Kingcrow (Italy)
Not for me.
Dream Evil official (Sweden)
I think I own two or three early DE discs. I doubt they would play many songs I like.
Angra - 25th Anniversary "fans pick the set list" Show (Brazil)
I dig a few of their songs. Not a big fan obviously.
at this point, this is the least attractive roster since I first started coming in 2005. But, things might change.
This is the most attractive roster for me in a long time. No killer draw like Sanctuary, but easily the highest number of bands that I enjoy - Perhaps the highest number since the early days, would have to check. I guess I am going back to Atlanta in 2018.

"It's not exactly a horrible album, but it's no better than something by, I dunno, Pagan's Mind or some other shirt-tucking nerdprog band." - Matt Johnsen of Pharaoh
