    Thought I'd start a thread to start more discussion about the fest since it's in a few days. Who do you guys think will be show stealers? I'm not talking so much about the headliners as I think most are expecting Omen and Oz to bring it. I'm talking the lower tier bands, including the music joint stage.

    I have to say personally I'm probably looking forward to Dark Mirror the most.

    As I said before, I'm hoping (almost expecting) that the youngins will bring their A-game. At this point I'd like to see Demon Bitch, Borrowed Time and Olorin really shake things up. I'm not a big Seax fan but I bet they'll really bring it in a live setting, and I've heard great things about October 31 and recent Shok Paris. Hopefully the speed freak check out Gatekrashor, because they're a lot of fun.

    I'm expecting Ashbury and Winterhawk to both be nothing less than magical.

    I honestly think some of the headliners will be good but just OK since most dont play live alot. I saw this at Keep it True...while they are classic acts they forgot how to put on a good live show.

    I am thinking on the main stage an underdog like Shok Paris will take the win.

    Second stage someone like Vanlade will put on a powerful performance.

    By definition a show stealer is someone you don't expect to be great, so if I answer the question then my answer will automatically be wrong because by naming that band then I am expecting them to be great.

    must say King Fowley is a pretty lively front man with good banter.
    I do think we will not see a band as lively as Skull Fist was last year.

    Day one I'd say Tyrant's Reign. I was not a huge fan of their EP so I originally thought I'd just catch a few songs then go check out Innersiege. Started out sitting down and ended up at the front on the edge of the pit (completely forgot about Innersiege)!

    I don't think so. I met a lot of band members and other cool people but I don't think any of them were forum members. I know I saw Mr. Elementos around a lot (he seemed to be watching all the same bands as me) but I never got a chance to say hi since I was too busy bangin my head.

    Were you the dude that bought me a drink at the bar during Winterhawk (I think?) I remember this happening and the fellow in question made an offhand remark about a picture of me in the snow but in my tipsy state I didn't make any sort of connection until after we'd parted ways.

    Nope not me. I was the guy with the big blue backpack at the start of day one (since I had just got off the plane and hadn't been to the hotel yet) and later I was wearing a denim vest with a Helloween backpatch, and on the front a Blind Guardian patch on one shoulder and a DRI - Thrash Zone patch on the other (I had to take all my buttons off to go through security so it looked pretty bare).

    Yup. Though had I know they had a radical change in vocalists I would not have picked them.

    I've heard of that, but I have no clue where to find it.

    I was standing next to you during some of Demon Bitch's and Omen's sets. I was going to tell you how awesome that Helloween patch was, but the opportunity never arose. If you come next year, I'll be sure to say hi.
