I realized this year that the dates of this festival (assuming it is similar to this year) fall in a short period where I'm not in school, so I'm seriously considering going to this next year.

Stratovarius because an exclusive means they aren't touring here until 2015 at the earliest, and I sadly missed them in 2009. Overkill is a strange, but always welcome choice. Jon Oliva's Pain doing Streets will be amazing, even though it is my least favourite Savatage album from HOTMK-TWOM. Orden Ogan is wicked, Masterplan is decent, and if I went to this, I'd seek out stuff by the other bands.

This festival always conflicts me because I like power metal but not really progressive stuff.

I've loved this festival for a long time, but I didn't make it this year. Really hurts missing Armored Saint!

But put simply, Pain of Salvation are my favorite band and Remedy Lane is my favorite album. So I know where I'll be.

Their next album will be a prog-masterpiece with 5 songs, ranging from 7 tot 11 minutes in length.

To me, it's not extremely weird that Overkill is playing at all, so much as it is that they're not headlining. I understand that Stratovarius and Seventh Wonder are more exclusive events, but this is OVERKILL.

But there are other ways I can look at it, too. Thrashers who also love prog will get a great fix, while prog fans who don't like Overkill will have a nice opportunity to go out and get some dinner or do some merch shopping.

They are kind of getting away from EVERY band having to be prog or power metal, mostly because almost every band in that scene has played it at least once, so he's gotta broaden it up some. Hence, Armored Saint/Soilwork this year, Forbidden last year, etc.
