    There use to be an official "Guess The Roster" thread a couple years back.
    I thought it was pretty entertaining to try and guess next year's roster even though the DARK ONE would always win.

    Maybe we can do one this year? No prize... JUST FOR FUN.

    I'll start with my prediction. Pretty sure I'm way off but here we go.


    Theme: The Great Kangaroo, Koala, Dingo Battle.

    Friday
    6. Anathema
    5. Voyager
    4. Lord
    3. DSO:saint:
    2. GloryHammer
    1. Anubis Gate

    Saturday
    6. DragonForce
    5. Riverside
    4. Haken
    3. Hibria
    2. Caligula's Horse
    1. Evertale (I feel like their album cover inspired this year's PPUSA Logo art)

    **Forgot about Gloryhammer. Had to edit my list.**

    Sorry, but with this line-up, I'd most likely skip PP next year...

    FRIDAY
    6) Blind Guardian
    5) Threshold
    4) Falconer (what the hell, let's dream a bit)
    3) Anubis Gate
    2) Persuader
    1) Appearance of Nothing

    SATURDAY
    6) Evergrey
    5) Dark Angel
    4) Vanishing Point
    3) Amberian Dawn
    2) Borealis
    1) Dynazty

    Thoughts:
    1) Kamelot is another possibility for a headlining slot, they put out an album every 2 - 3 years so they're due for a 2015 release and potential tour.
    2) I'd love to see Vintersorg thrown in as an oddball but I can't even half seriously predict it.
    3) I expect to be completely wrong but it's fun to think about the possibilities.

    I almost put Kamelot on my list thinking maybe they play (enter album here) in it's entirety?

    Hell, an "Old School" set would be awesome with only pre-Black Halo material. I know why Thomas Youngblood mostly avoids that material but if it would work anywhere, ProgPower is the place for it.

    Allen/Lande!!! Now that would be a dream come true for me... Adding Dynazty and Threshold (which I ever saw) would be killer as well... Evergrey would be cool too for sure.

    Allen/Lande over Threshold??? I am a HUGE Jorn Lande fan, but no way.
    Anathema over Evergrey???? Not a chance in hell...you will have the Rage effect in a big way or people falling asleep. Anathema is far to mellow these days to be a headliner/last band of the day. You need a band with pep to keep the crowd interested

    I'd kill to see them but unfortunately, Sybreed is no more :(

    Drop, Ales, and Kevin are forming another band without Ben. Don't know who if anyone will be the singer though.

    That one seems legit. The others are good but this one has the greatest shot at reality IMHO.

    Allen/Lande is the bigger "get" since if it ever happened it would probably be a world exclusive. Also, I am a bigger Evergrey fanboy than I am Anathema but let's be realistic..Anathema's last U.S. tour sold out almost everywhere..Evergrey not so much..besides..it's just guessing for fun
