Vanden Plas: Love this band !!!.....So looking forward to this set....definitely a tie for number one band to see. Evergrey: Despite some weak releases of late, still a band I would not miss live. Creation's End: Do not have this disc yet (of which is on the purchase list). However, from what little I have heard, would like to see them. Voyager: Umm, Yes....love the sound of this band. Eldritch: Um, sorry....have tried Nino and Headquake(?)...just not working for me.....will likely try to give it the ol' perusal and see, but not expecting a long stay. Mob Rules: A band I have never paid much attention to....not sure I will prior to the fest, but will stop in for the start and see if it grabs me. Arcturus: Certainly not one I have much interest in listening to (just not my thing will driving down the road) but certainly one I want to check out live. Sanctuary: Looking forward to this but am leery as to how well they can pull this set off....looking to be pleasantly surprised. Haken: A band I should Like....but have yet to do any listening to. Certainly on the purchase list prior to the fest at some time. While Heaven Wept: Saw them in Raleigh recently....ummm...YES! Red Circuit: Know nothing about this one (aside from vocalist who I like)....though not sure I will know much about them prior to fest. Toss up as to what I'll be doing here. Labyrinth: Got their EP many may years ago and loved it...never bought anything else having listened to a lot of their stuff on and off with none ever really grabbing me. Will be there at the outset and see what happens. Dream Evil: Guilty Pleasure Band for me.....Yes....but they will have to be better than average for me to stay for the whole set...for no other reason than it's day 4 and........ Therion: One of my favorite bands of all time...there will have to be a good reason why I would miss this set....a damned good reason.
