Some new changes too-- the Midweek Mayhem show in the Loft on Wednesday is gone as is the Thursday Kick-Off; the two promoters that put these shows on will now co-produce a Wednesday/Thursday show on the main stage with Glenn, the PP promoter.  

Wednesday will be 4 bands, with 3 bands on Thursday.  Glenn has stated that the Wednesday headliner will be someone big enough to headline the main fest; the Thursday show will be a "promoter's choice" night with one band picked by each of the 3 promoters.  The band's for the Wed/Thurs portion will be announced in the coming weeks.

Interesting lineup!

I had just about given up on Scar Symmetry's tech death & then after reading some reviews of their latest release, The Singularity Phase I Neohumanity & picking it up I'm really excited to hear the next 2 phases of this trilogy. Great stuff.

Fates Warning with John Arch! I think you're finally going to see Snamu at next year's fest.

Serious Black! An awesome band & I have to wonder if this billing has Venom involved in one way or another.  lol

Ooooo Green Carnation! Is this just for a tour or are they going to do any recording?  scratch

Devin with Anneke: That should be interesting, I picked up her Drive solo album not long ago & think it's the best thing she's done since The Gathering. Hope she gets to do a few tunes from that release.

Maybe somewhere in the near future they'll add Xandria to the festivities. Symphonic metal with classically trained female vocals. Think Nightwish but I like them better than that.

The rest of the lineup I don't know much about.

Have you heard them? Just curious. Anyway thanks for the info.  Wink

Ok I looked them up on Metal Archives & Arjen Anthony Lucassen is also in this project. Now I'm REALLY interested!  Now I've read on & it seems that he has only made one live appearance with the band & that was in Amsterdam.

Was it this vocalist:



or this one:



Yeah Arjen

I'm listening to it right now on Spotify. There are two discs one is the Gentle versions (more folky) & the Storm versions (heavier). Pretty good so far, I went ahead & ordered it along with pre orders for Christian Mistress, Hooded Menace & Clutch.

Yeah I know why isn't there a new Guilt Machine yet? I ask myself that very same question a lot. While we're at asking these questions where the Hell is Lori Linstruth & is she making music at all?

I am fairly certain it was that first female.  Not 100% though as I did not watch them for too long.

Yeah I figured it was probably Manuela Kraller who was on their 2012 release Neverworld's End but I wasn't sure when current vocalist, Dianne van Giersbergen (no relation to Anneke) joined.

So they weren't your cup of tea?

Thanks for the info. I like this band quite a bit but damn they go thru vocalists like the Redskins lose games.

It was a pretty safe prediction really!  Big Smile

I probably won't go but the 2 times that I saw Green Carnation they were amazing especially when the lead guitarist played a theremin to take the place of the much maligned female vocal midsection of Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness. Makes me wonder if the band will be comprised of the members of that tour.

You will see me next year for the 10th time.  Maybe 9th because I missed a year in between. '
