    Nope. That was a year before I started coming, and I've never seen them. You know something, that sounds like a lousy live performance, but I STILL would love to hear him singing.

    Hey, Zod!

    Yes, I did see Nightingale's performance at ProgPower II. I'm not a fan of singers having the lyrics on stage with them, either. However, Dan Swano was probably one of the busiest guys in the metal scene circa 2001. Aside from working with Nightingale, he was playing in and/or working as an engineer/mixer/producer for Bloodbath, Dark Funeral, Diabolical Masquerade, Karaboudjan, Nasum, Pain, and The Project Hate MCMXCIX. Granted, he didn't have to take on all of that work, but it's always been in his nature. Considering that he probably didn't have much time to rehearse the material, I didn't deduct points for having the stand on stage. Besides, I think that was the band's first live performance ever. They've performed many times in Europe since then, and the stand was nowhere to be seen. I think they're worth giving another shot.


    Stay metal. Never rust.

    Illusion Suite - Killer band who gave an awesome PPUSA set. Would love to see a repeat of that.
    Myrath - Ditto.
    Serenity - Great music and truly gracious people. Sadly, they have ditched Clementine and have some lineup stability issues.

    Also, Illusion Suite and Edguy, because ProgPower is probably the only way Edguy comes back to the U.S.

    I appreciate how busy he is, but it just didn't set well with me. That said, I can certainly understand why people would want to give the man a pass on that performance. He does have an amazing voice.

    Yeah, they'd be a blast. To that I'd add: House of Spirits, and Psychotic Waltz.

    What, no love on this thread for Jon Oliva? :erk:

    1. JOP, WMD, or just Jon singing the phone book would make me happy.

    Do we actually have to say it? As far as the fans go he's got a standing invite. I feel pretty comfortable saying that.

    I don't wanna see Circus Maximus back unless they have a new album out. Between the 4 performances I've seen of them I think I've seen pretty much their whole discography performed live.
