    Thats true, but I was expecting Ascenion or 4acidbath3 or 3DimensionalAperature or even worse yet the dreaded BENMECH to suggest something like that.

    While I am a HUGE Nocturnal Rites fan, I have to admit that I don't feel they are quite at the level of headliner status. Not to say they wouldn't destroy the joint, but I just get a "feel" they aren't quite there yet.....I hope to hell I'm wrong.

    that also clearly rules out Stratovarius and Edguy as Saturday headliners since they are 100% power... oh wait, they already did headline saturday nights before. :Smug:

    We'd definetly like to get to ProgPower for next year, so plese ask
    everyone you know to request us at their forums and so on.

    Thanks and talk soon! Best, /NILS

    That bad should have already been to PP. After seeing them I cannot believe they have not seen Atlanta..They should be invited, and headline.. They absolutely slayed at Powerfest.. However They are not enough Cookie Monster, death kill your mom kinda stuff for powerfest, as I amtold that's why they won't be asked back to that fest... Anyhoo.. NOCTURNAL RITES for ProgPower got my Vote... : )

    i dont know many of the users here, but i do recall 3D posting some really really stupid stuff.

    i dont hate or dislike NR, id just much rather see a band that im familiar with a bit of material and truly enjoy for the last spot.

    its hard to please everyone, if NR is the last band i wont bitch, since there is very little to bitch about when it comes to prog power.

    the line up already more than satisfies me, but i feel a band like racer x or symphony x could keep the same amount of people happy or more happy than NR could.

    just an opinion, if NR is the band, its still all good, i just wanted to throw my 2 cents in there for an opinion too.

    I really like NR but there are other bands I would rather see; however, NR would definantly not disappoint.

    Hmm.. I'm intrigued by Glenn's comments.

    And I still don't really agree about the Rage-Evergrey incident. I don't think it was as much the fans not wanting to see Rage, but more of the fanboy reaction to hearing, "Hey guys, Evergrey's signing autographs!" "WHAT? OMG! EEEEEEEEEEEEE!" and running off to catch them. Then they completely missed seeing Rage, and not knowing how good they were. I haven't heard anyone who saw the Rage set say that they didn't kick ass. I just think it was all the die-hard Evergrey fans freaking out at the chance to go hang with them and get pictures and autographs.

    But hey, I'm just a bass player, so I'm most likely wrong! ;)

    There's 1200 people at PP. There were a few hundred in the lobby with EG. There were a few more hundred back at the hotels already starting the after parties. I think Rage just didn't appeal to a wide enough range of the entire audience.

    I don't know whether NR would or would not, but they sure as hell blew everyone away at Powerfest. Unfortunately, ML, who had a great performance the previous year, was not able to hold on to the audience after so much energy was expended on NR. Whether they get to PP this year or not, I certainly hope they do soon, in any slot.

    If they end up not playing PP, guess I'll be saving to buy a ticket to Sweden.

    Nocturnal Rites could absolutely headline! They were a superior band at Chicago Powerfest. By far the best of the fest. Extremely tight, heavy, catchy chorus's, they do hold some progress elements, & certainly put on an excellent show. They are all great guys to hang out with too. I am very suprised that they havn't made it to ProgPower yet.

    I'm also suprised that Biomechanical hasn't been mentioned too much here. Those guys left a deep impression... in everyone's foreheads!!!

    if Sonata Arctica is headliner status, then NR certainly is.

    I totally agree with you on that note. I would rather see Nocturnal Rites than Sonata.
