Make up a tour/festival with seven bands you'd want to see.

Not counting openers of course.

Iron Maiden
Blind Guardian
Opeth
Katatonia
Primordial
Jag Panzer
Sabaton

Such would be a dream come true for me.

Let's not make it a tour, but a travelling festival like Ozzfest. This would mean that in my imagination you would have beer, sun, women, tents, and the following bands:

Manowar
Iron Maiden
Blind Guardian
Iced Earth with Ripper
Onkel Tom
Savatage
Megadeth

Ideally i'd prolly put something like this together:
(headliner down to starter)
Blind Guardian (135 min)
Savatage (110 min)
Riverside (90 min)
Kamelot (75 min)
Pagan's Mind (75 min)
Banco del muto soccorso (75 min)
Lazuli (60 min)

Which means that on one stage, you'd have a great festival from about 13.00 untill somewhere between 2 and 3 am.
On two stages, you'd have a great festival from about 14.00 untill between 1 and 2 am.

giving some room for playing a tad longer than planned.

Decending from favourite to least favourite:

Rammstein
HammerFall
Blind Guardian
Sabaton
Rhapsody
Sonata Arctica
Kamelot


Normally I would add ToTo, but since they're not metal at all and they don't exist anymore, they don't really fit in with the others.

Eläkeläiset ("aftershow-party")
Judas Priest (never seen'em so far - it's a shame!)
Avantasia (who know's if they'll ever play live again?)
Sanctuary (new album...new tour?)
Wuthering Heights (they tour even less than falconer)
Lost Horizon (who knows what they are worth anymore...once they finally find a new singer)
Steel Attack (they're back in their original line-up playing only songs from the first two records)

Whoo, MarchOfTime-Fest 2010!!!!!

1. Symphony X
2. Blind Guardian
3. Arjen A. Lucassen w/ Either Star One, or by some magical alignment of the heavens, his entire guest cast from either Electric Castle or Universal Migrator (those 2 albums seem like they'd be fun live :) )
4. Iron Maiden
5. Tarot (Metal on Ice 2.0!)
6. Avantasia
7. Devin Townsend (along with Anneke Van Giersenbergen from Addicted!), maybe bring Ziltoid up on Stage for good measure.
End the festival with SYL's "Satan's Ice Cream Truck" and Herman the Planet Smasher


It'll be Like Power-Prog USA but with 10x the Epic :lol:
05.Star One (New album coming this year!)
I KNOW!!!!! the sample video sounds amazing; I always love Arjen's Crazy-spacey Synth-Metal music :mrgreen:

Not a favourite bands list here, but more bands that would combine nicely:

1. Dream Theater
2. Transatlantic (Portnoy stays)
3. Neal Morse (Morse and Portnoy stay)
4. Spock´s Beard [reunited] (Morse stays)
---break---
5. Iced Earth
6. Demons&Wizards (Schaffer stays)
7. Blind Guardian (Hansi stays)

The cool thing would be, that within the two groups, at least one musician would stay on stage and the others being replaced, so you would have a nice continuity.

hmm, let's see

- The New Black (8))
- Týr (a little touch of viking atmosphere)
- Sólstafir (time to get mindblown)
- Powerwolf (in blood we trust, hallelujah!)
- Volbeat (rocknroll!!!)
- Onkel Tom (wheeeeeeee FUN)

and as my personal highlight:

- Dezperadoz (of course, what else :P)

and where do i put anathema, pagan's mind, riverside, the boss hoss, amorphis, therion, eläkeläiset, orphaned land, dirty deeds, minor sin and all that nonmetal bands i like to see?
YEE-HAW MOTHERFUCKER!

And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which
I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
it’s a very very...

...Mad world

I would never sit through seven bands. Jeesus-pleezus. Booooring.

I would, however, like Jethro Tull to perform seven songs for me in my bathroom. It has good acoustics, and you don't have to walk far to pee.

Off the top of my head here's what I'd like to see, though some might be unrealistic.


Blind Guardian
Sigh
Manegarm
Absu
Mondstille
Wintersun
Gallowbraid


I tried to pick ones which I like most of the discography of. So I left off some bands which may have some great albums, but may not be consistent in my eyes. Also I'm unsure if all of these bands play live because one is a one man band, though some bands like that have special members who only perform with the main band member in live settings. This isn't supposed to be the most realistic set list.

QUEEN (with Freddie)
IRON MAIDEN
Rainbow (with Dio and Cozy)
Judas Priest
Savatage (with Jon and Criss)
Crimson Glory (with Midnight)
Skyclad (with Martin, even though he isn't dead)
You charge each other for the time and breath it takes to say 'good morning',
But the truth is slowly dawning -- things are getting out of hand,
We all pursue our shattered dreams along the roads to our own ruin --
Watch our empires sink and wash away like castles made of sand.
And so cast off the lies that are your lives and find the truth within.
-- Martin Walkyier

Also, Balrogs have wings.
