    Ihsahn replaces Arcturus at ProgPower USA XII Festival



    Former EMPEROR frontman, Ihsahn has been confirmed to replace Arcturus at this year’s edition of the annual progressive & power metal festival held in Atlanta, GA September 2011.

    Arcturus have issued the following statement regarding their cancellation:

    “Arcturus still suffer from hibernation sickness, and due to outdated parts we deeply regret to inform you: We are canceling Progpower USA. This lack of maintenance is entirely our own fault, and sincere apologies go out to the promoter and all ticket holders, especially those of you who had planned to travel far..”

    ProgPower USA Promoter, Glenn Harveston, adds:

    “I have no idea what the hell that statement means. I’m not going to try and figure it out either, as I have wasted enough time and effort on that “band” already. In the meantime, I would like to personally thank Ihsahn for taking the slot. His professionalism in this situation is greatly appreciated.”

    Confirmed bands for ProgPower USA XII:

    Therion**
    Sanctuary
    Ihsahn**
    Evergrey (Playing “In Search of Truth” in its entirety exclusively)
    Dream Evil**
    Vanden Plas**
    Labyrinth**
    Mob Rules**
    While Heaven Wept
    PowerGlove
    Red Circuit**
    Voyager
    Darkwater**
    Eldritch**

    LOL I was thinking the same thing.

    I'm sure all the 40-50 year olds with skullets and Crimson Glory t-shirts there won't know what to think about Ihsahn.

    What a gay ass festival.

    I had the pleasure of seeing Arcturus once, and it was killer.

    well that's unfortunate. but, Ihsahn is a more-than-worthy replacement IMO.

    This. I'd actually prefer Ihsahn to Arcturus.

    Crazy talk. Maybe back with Emperor on the Anthems tour but solo? Nope.

    Ihsahn is much more entertaining than Arcturus, even his solo stuff.
