    I was thinking about the past line ups and the bands that bailed or had to cancel. Would have been interesting to see how some would have gone over.

    Here is a list...I am sure I am forgetting some...

    Hour of 13
    Hallow's Eve
    Onslaught
    Exhumer
    Bonded By Blood
    Fueled By Fire
    Warlord
    Split Heaven
    Ashes of Avarice


    I think there are more. If anyone else remembers some feel free to add. These are the ones off the top of my head.

    Yeah, and I nearly cried when you guys cancelled. I was also upset when Hour of 13 cancelled. You guys should try to get Night Magic sometime. They are the current incarnation of Hour of 13. Or, get Karl from Gates of Slumber's new band, Wretch, for some more good doom.

    Warlord would have been awesome to see. Shame they had to cancel.

    Gates of Slumber cleared the room...this has pretty much sealed the fate for Mike getting too many doom bands unless they are a mix with another genre.

    I think Hour of 13 would have been great if they had played, honestly. Solid music.

    You can't forget who they were playing against.

    it wasn't anyone big. Doom just doesn't go over great at the fest.

    Pretty sure they played against Winterhawk or Borrowed Time or something.

    I think it was Borrowed Time. Winterhawk was when Shock Paris played

    It was kind of staggered I think. The first part of Gates clashed with BT and the later part clashed with Winterhawk.

    My point is the Joint room wasn't packed because people were trying to get away from Gates.

    sadly it put the nail in the coffin for getting doom at the fest. Mike isn't really a doom guy. But wait till you see what is in store for 2017 already.

    Ravish could be on the list as well since most of the band never showed up. They did play a short set.

    Sadly I think only a handful of doom bands (mostly epic doom) have broader appeal (ie. Solitude Aeturnus and Candlemass) and the first one doesn't seem to play shows in almost a decade and the second one probably won't come back to the US.

    very true...I think bigger ones or the ones who have a blend of other styles are fine. Just the traditional doom bands just do not go over well live at is it. I know Mike has a pretty hard rule about it now.

    I think some of the more epic doom bands would do better than Gates of Slumber. Something like Solstice, Atlantean Kodex, Doomsword, etc but those bands would be a bitch to bring over and expensive as fuck.
