    Yes, that PLUS attending the show, financially supporting it... yes that is what should be done to fully support the event. IOW I am saying, go the extra mile.

    That's just a cop-out. You could go once every 2-3 years. Just do it.

    You're not far off at all. And I appreciate your passion. As some have noted, wanting to attend and being able to attend can be separated by a million miles for some people.

    Believe me, I've been in situations of not being able to make shows many times, for many reasons. We're all in that boat now and then. At some point though... your words not mine (to Jasonic)... "That said... get your ass down here."

    Just curious, was Aska not available? They would have blown the doors off the building. Although, I can see how that might be a building violation. Still, I don't quite understand how this band has never played this festival.

    :err:

    Ok, my two cents (as usual, a day late a dollar short). While there are multiple circumstances why people cannot attend, I agree that everybody who is a fan of the genre should attend at least once. I went to my 1st in 2003, because... A. I had to see Nightwish ...B. CircleIICircle, Vandenplas & Redemption...and all the shock of discovering this fest for the 1st time. I was completely stunned that a lineup this strong could exist for a progressive metal show in the USA!
    2004 saw me returning because the 1st one was awesome!!! I just had to go back. Unfortunately I developed a blood clot in my leg and had a truly horrible time, being in pain for most of the fest and missing alot of P.O.S and all of Edguy due to my issues with the clot.
    2005 I was unable to attend, still working on the bloodclot issues. I still regret missing that show
    2006 I returned again and I have been to every one since. This year we are bringing our son to his 1st, & I am guessing that he will attend every year following this one, whether we attend or not, due to the sheer enjoyment he will have at this show.

    If you haven't been there, you must attend...you will be hooked eternally! Trust me...

    Thurisaz were pretty solid at Chicago Powerfest in 2007.
    I think the problem with them was they were a little too late to get exposed.
    If they were around 5 years earlier, things may have been different for em.
    Are they still active?

    New album recording now.

    Scent of A Dream and Circadian Rhythms were really really really really strong works. When the new album comes, their profile WILL rise a great deal. There's something Opethian about them, and I don't use that comparison loosely. Maybe if Mikael's clean vocals were more like Mariusz's of Riverside.

    yeah the new Thurisaz album is called "The Cimmerian Years" and is expected to be released in the next few months. I think you're right Ben, their new record may help them gain more visibility. Although I might have said the same about the new In Vain album, but personally, that remains one of the biggest disappointments for new albums of 2010 for me.

    Cool pic. I've been a big since Nine Tongues. Vastly underrated.
