    I actually spent less time and $$ in the vendor room than usual this year….in large part from trying to be respectful about the seat-saving issue. I made a couple of targeted trips looking for very specific things, and also asked Lance for recommendations (which are always great). In the early years, I would spend a few changeovers in the vendor room and literally look at every CD at every single booth. Here’s what I did come home with…

    CDs:

    A Sound of Thunder - The Lesser Key of Solomon
    Anubis Gate - Horizons
    Vital Science - Imaginations on the Subject of Infinity
    Distorted Harmony - Chain Reaction
    Voyager - S/T (edit: oops, V)

    T-Shirts:

    Need - Orvam: A Song for Atlanta
    Seventh Wonder - Welcome to Mercy Falls
    PPUSA XV
    JOP - Streets Revisited

    Love that so many bands did special edition t-shirts. Great souvenirs!!

    I live outside the USA so I can miss a good opportunity to buy stuff. On the other hand I can't afford not finding a must have so I buy most of the CDs over the internet. Bought around 30 CDs at Amazon and 10 at the festival(mostly thrash, death stuff) Bought also 2 tees(voyager and SW), 2 working shirts(PMind and SW) and a vinyl (insomnium new album)

    I spent more than I expected to, as I often do at these shows:

    T-shirts:

    JOP--PPUSA Streets
    SW--Mercy Falls PPVUSA
    Virgin Steele--Noble Savage ($5)

    DVD/CD Sets:
    Primal Fear--History of Fear
    Saga--Worlds Apart Live

    CDs

    Sonata Arctica--Pariah's Child
    Voyager--The Meaning of I, S/T
    Circus Maximum--The 1st Chapter, Isolate
    Withem--The Point of You
    Primal Fear--S/T, Metal is Forever (2 CD Greatest Hits + Covers)
    Stratovarius--Elements Part 1, Elements Part 2
    Voodoo Circle--S/T
    Revamp--S/T, Wild Card
    Death Angel--Sonic German Beatdown--Live in Germany
    Riverside--Voice in My Head

    I was hoping to pick up some more music from next year's crop of participants, but those were hard to come by, so I hit Amazon on Sunday to get Angra's Holy Land and the newest effort from Dynazty.

    Between the vendors room, used CD store along the way and raiding the Divebomb headquarters, I brought home just over 100 CDs.

    From Vendor's perspective, sales volume this year might have been much lower. There were less than half of the crowd compared to past years in the vendor room. Last year I did not notice this. But this year it was a night and day difference

    Digital music buying and digital music stream services seem also taken hold of ProgPower demographics as well.

    It was extremely noticeable. In past years, noon on Saturday was a melee. This year I was looking around and wondering if they locked the doors.
