damn skippy! fanboy myself and damn proud of it!
nevrmore is fucking awesome
Nevermore closing on Saturday isn't so bad. I'm usually so burnt by then, and now I'll have an excuse to leave early (long drive back to Tampa). I have tried for years to get into Nevermore, and I have liked their music, but without good vocals they're not for me. Evergrey, they get it. They are as heavy as anyone could ask,AND they have great vocals. I can't listen to screetching, growling, untalented shit!:
The great thing about PPUSA is there's always something for everyone. And as long as Evergrey is the Friday night closer.....I'm good!
Bay City Rollers - Saturday Night(LOL)
I am sorry but I dont think Warrel Dane classifies as untalented shit. You might not like him and thats fin but his vocals are not shit.
There's a HUGE difference between NOT TALENTED to NOT LIKING something.
And LOTS of people in this forum seem to not realize that, which is a shame.
They headlined the first BWBK fest, I think. I was there, but still I'm not quite sure. It was great because Chris Broderick from Jag Panzer was NEVERMORE's second guitarist for that show.
:Spin: Well that's music to my ears. This year doesn't have one of my favorite line-ups, but I was already looking forward to having a great time anyway and hopefully being surprised by a band or two. I really was missing that "traditional" prog metal though, and so this little announcement about next year helps a lot. It even makes me look on this year's line up more favorably, weird though that may seem!
heh, little boy, work out hard, I'll still take on you silly ass. Beware and be for warned those Security Guys at Earthlink are gonna make you feel damn silly! I for one, can't wait for another group hug, that was awesome! :Spin:
Evergrey blew me away at ProgPower IV. Michael Hakansson has been cool to me in the past. The news that Evergrey will be back doesn't really surprise me; but it doesn't disappoint me, either. Seeing Englund sing and play guitar at the same time at PPIV was one of the most emotional performances I have ever seen at a metal show. Hopefully they'll haul out some of that "Nosferatu" action again.
I've never seen Nevermore play before. Guess I'll have to haul out one of my Bauhaus t-shirts for that set.
oh indeed, throw me a Bauhaus shirt while you're at it...and a DCD shirt too!!!
As I stated, some of us ARE genuinely excited. Don't lump everybody's positive reaction in the same way. This is unfortunately, the only "vacation" I take every year. A week of musky fishing in the North woods would be a lot cheaper...I can't afford to do both, so this is where I end up....:Spin:
According to a few of the minority, he already has....
Best line up ever - PP III
I don't think Glenn will be able to recreate that one for a LONG time, if ever.
The comment that this forum is "blind fanboys of Glenn" sounds a little snobbish to me (I realize it isn't YOUR comment...) but I'd like to see it in full before I jump to any conclusions.
I do as well, and honestly, I don't think Glenn has the ability to create a bad festival. Sure, there have been bands I actually despise, but one band does not a festival make (Unless it's Freak Kitchen! )
I'll rescind my Troll comment, as I've seen other posts since, by him, where his views were stated more clearly, and in much better form.
I was hoping for Primal Fear or Gamma Ray, but Nevermore is just fine by me.
The difference in the way YOU stated this, with the ever important "IMO", makes it a lot easier to digest than a wtf? Nevermore doesn't even BELONG at this fest type of comment. A better presentation would have avoided a lot of the mudslinging, & I respect everyone's opinion here, just not when it's stated in a dick-ish manner, and as fact. It's all good, we're just a big dysfunctional family of loud mouths bitching about the pros & cons of the best festival in North America..... Come September, it'll be ok....
Clearly you have never seen brick wall no.1 and no.2
Yes, they did. I drove to Cleveland *by myself* specifically to see Evergrey and Nevermore... AFAIK, neither had played near here in a long time (Evergrey not at all)... and now I get to see them right in my own backyard. This is EXACTLY why, IMO, ProgPower rules. Those of you who can go see Nevermore anytime you want should be thankful, because that's not the case with lots of people. And to Narcosynthesis68: yes, yes, and yes! I can't wait to see you and Zod orgasm when Nevermore hits the stage!!
Nice enough guys, but I would NOT want either one upset with me, or dragging my ass off the floor. :Spin:
I went just to see Evergrey (although Nevermore was great, too) - PPII was the only time I had seen them previously. And what a freakin' great show that was, too. That was a more *typical* metal show in terms of the numbers of chicks vs. guys... mighta been fifty women at most. Goes to show how unusual PP is in that respect.
They did about half a dozen headline shows in November on their way back to Seattle. One stop was in Denver. And my ass is still trying to recover from the kicking it got that night.
There was mention of a tour this Spring too.
Thanks for the civil reply J Dubya.
I'm actually with you too. PPIII was by far the best and most powerful lineup this festival has gotten from my musical point of view (More into power than prog)
It was my first festival - and to see the bands I thought no one else in the states knew about (Angra, Blind Guardian, Gamma Ray, Edguy) it was one of the best shows of my lifetime.
Everyone else has been special, but not as solid as P3. Again - that's my opinion.
I still think VII is a solid lineup - just none of the 10 are as big of draw for me as those huge 4 were from PIII.
Opened for Savatage back in '01.
No problem! Any time! we're cool, I just didn't want to come off as being too dick-ish myself, and figured I'd explain my comments a bit better too.
Just one big dysfunctional family who's going to once again have their asses handed to them in September!
Glenn, which bands -- if any -- will be building tours around their ProgPower appearances this year?
