Looking at bands touring again:
REDEMPTION / FATES WARNING (hmmm, seeing R.A. Twice!! would be really nice!)
THRESHOLD
or a German combination? VANDEN PLAS and DREAMSCAPE??

Sabaton is good fun, you just need to appreciate its cheesiness.

Sabaton is about as fun as inhaling Sarin gas, and now I have to apologize to the Sarin gas.

Come on, if those guys were actually decent musicians, and didn't take themselves seriously. If Sabaton can come, so can Steel Panther.

hahaha, nice discussion about Sabaton. But they won't be booked, we just don't like that kind of music. I have never seen them live and some people told me you have to experience them at least once. But I have already experienced Dragonforce and I think that is the limit for me

I agree, and I can add that I have seen Sabaton twice, but it just doesn't work for me. I'm not into that kind of "happy" metal.

Steel Panther would be awesome to have, though :P But they'd take all our women! :P

A new guess: Ihsahn

I'm really impressed by his latest work (After). I like the way he keeps stretching the boundaries of Progmetal.

Much as i like Sabaton, i don't think they belong at PP Europe, as they are just another powermetalband. Nothing progressive about them.
Judging by last years line-up te USA edition should have changed its name to Powermetal USA...

Agreed, have you seen this year? Kamelot, Hammerfall (of all things not prog) Leaves eyes, Tarot, Delain, Stormwarrior.

At least they have seventh wonder to make up for some of the choices.

Interesting Sabaton debate going on here! Saw them once before, in December last year, didn't expect too much, but their live show was totally awesome. Great musicians who had a lot of fun onstage. Incredibly nice guys too. I interviewed Joakim before the gig and asked him about the power/prog thing, read it halfway down the 2nd page of the interview here - http://www.metal-discovery.com/Inter...w_2009_pt2.htm

I make fun of Dragonforce to no end....incredible cheesiness and they can't play their instruments live (probably not in the studio either but who am I to judge). But Sabaton live at PPUSA last year was VERY entertaining and the lead vocalist was really nice when I talked to him. I am actually looking forward to their new album now because of that performance, and I never listened to them before. Didn't feel that way when I saw Dragonforce live. To each its own, but in my opinion: Sabaton > Dragonforce

Textures with the new singer (ex-singer of CiLiCe) would be interesting to see, true

If I can put my New Zealand 2 cents in this conversation (and in reality that is only worth half of the Euro cents!!), then having Vanden Plas, Redemption, Royal Hunt or Pain of Salvation as headliners - then I will be a very happy kiwi.

Gary

np: Terminal - Tree of Life. This is a very nice amalgamation of styles - metal, a little progressive, groovy. Nice.

+1 except PoS...I still have some double feelings since their last PP Europe headliner show

edit: Of course I cannot be a happy kiwi, my best shot would be a happy tulip

New Disillusion will come this autumn - so maybe them? That would totally rock my socks off.
