    Never thought about having UDO and Accept at the same show. Talk about the elephant in the room. Metal Church seems to be on a bunch of these lists.

    File this under "cold day in hell" list:

    A "Redemption" lineup (Not the band Redemption) that features all the drop-outs of Progpower's history... Each year there have been many drop-outs

    To name a few from recently
    Anubis Gate
    Persefone
    Reinxeed
    ARCTURUS LOL

    Followed by tomato throwing based on performance

    I gave up on guessing the lineup years ago, as I would usually get one or two bands right at the most. I don't bother with wish lists, either. I figure that I'm going to like at least half of the bands on the bill each year regardless of the lineup. Not counting the bands playing on Wednesday or Thursday, I'm actually looking forward to seeing 75% of this year's lineup (well, maybe 2/3 after seeing Native Construct on Tuesday. I'm hoping that it was just the terrible sound mix that made their set a disappointment).

    Anywho, I really just wanted to respond to labarum. If you're going to put a "redemption lineup" together, you should add the original blow-off headliner: Nevermore!


    Stay metal. Never rust.

    Volbeat, tho they are probably too big for Progpower anymore.

    I've also heard that Wastefall is back together, tho I haven't heard about new music from them.

    that is what is so funny about it...they would be a draw for a smaller one off but never enough to cover the cost of paying and getting them here. Some bands just don't get it.

    Sounds great, thanks! OMG, Glenn is bringing Aryeon and Avantasia!!!

    Seriously though, I guess what started as a "guess the lineup post" turned into a "wish list" post for me. If I throw enough names out maybe I'll get a few right.

    Lol, this would be an awful show!
    I'd pass on Friday because there isn't a single band I'd care to see.
    Saturday is fairly solid though, if we could add a true headliner and have Psychotic Waltz play second fiddle.

    On second thought, with a little alteration we could turn Friday into something like "V Day", or even the entire festival of V's

    Friday Night
    VandenPlas
    Vanishing Point
    Voivod
    Valleys Eve
    Votum
    Vitruvious

    Saturday night
    Vision Divine Headliner
    Vain co-headliner
    Vicious Rumors
    Vaudxdvil reunion
    Vektor
    Visigoth

    That would be a novel idea and the bands out there make it an actual feasible idea, as there is some headliner appeal and some solid choices at the other levels, mid level band and opening acts.

    This, this, and more this.
    I have fallen hard for this band in the past year. I think they'd be great.

    I always thought they would be awesome at prog power in a weird, oddball sort of way.

    I would die to see Vanden Plas headline. They certainly have more than enough strong material.

    there is a severe lack of Pheriphery in this thread - and they would kick everyone's ass at center stage. such a great live band.

    Saw folks mention Fear Factory and Killswitch Engage - FF would be great to get a full album of one of the conceptual albums, but they are pretty heavy for PP. But Glenn did get Overkill (FUCK YOU). and KS:E would be amazing. I have seen them many many times and they are amazing live.
