    First Band Announcements

    by Jotunheimr » Thu Jul 04, 2019 12:31 pm

    Who do you think will be among the first announced for 2020? I'll buy a beer for whoever gets the most right in the first run of band announcements.


    My guesses:

    Demons & Wizards
    Epica
    Annihilator
    Skeletonwitch
    Dismember
    Overkill
    Amorphis
    Enforcer
    Deserted Fear
    Kobra and the Lotus
    Saltatio Mortis
    Soilwork
    Daylight Dies
    Behemoth
    Nightwish



    My 'holy shit' list:

    Nightwish
    Haggard
    Finntroll
    Toxic Holocaust
    Kivimetsan Druidi
    Turisas
    Korpiklaani
    Moonsorrow
    Finntroll
    Kampfar
    Belphegor
    Testament
    Elvenking
    Rotting Christ
    Carcass

    Might help people formulate a balanced guess:

    First 10 announcements for 2019!

    5 first-timers and 5 repeats
    3 three-peats and 1 four-peat
    6 bands from the top 100 of the wishlist, (2 of those were in the top 10)

    So using that as a guide, I'm going with for the first 10:

    Alestorm
    Blind Guardian
    Iced Earth
    Demons & Wizards
    Beast in Black
    Primordial
    Brothers of Metal
    Kampfar
    Godflesh
    Valhalore
    Upcoming Gigs:
    Apocalyptica-/-Turilli Leone's Rhapsody-/-Fleshgod-Apocaplypse-/-Kalmah-/-Michael-Sweet-/-Halestorm
    2020 Wishlist
    Almanac-/-Ancient-Bards-/-Avantasia-/-Battlelore-/-Beast-In-Black-/-Believer-/-Bloodbound-/-Brothers-of-Metal-/-Civil-War-/-Circus-Maximus-/-Claymorean-/-Dark-Moor-/-Dark-Sarah-/-Demons-&-Wizards-/-Diabulus-In-Musica-/-Edguy-/-Elvenking-/-Ex-Libris-/-Exit-Eden-/-Frozen-Crown-/-Galderia-/-Heavatar-/-Jaldaboath-/-Kaledon-/-Kalidia-/-Living-Sacrifice-/-Magnum-/-Neopera-/-Pathfinder-/-Poisonblack-/-Powerwolf-/-The-Privateer-/-Pythia-/-Ravenia-/-Revamp-/-Running-Wild-/-Serenity-/-Sleeping-Romance-/-Tarot-/-Ten-/-Thaurorod-/-The-Skull-/-Tourniquet-/-Trick-or-Treat-/-Trillium-/-Unisonic-/-Valhalore-/-

    He also tries to mix up the genre’s and this list lacks any Death/Thrash. I predict something more genre varied...though I am not going to stick my neck out long enough to predict 10 specific bands :) So cudos to you for having the balls to attempt that :)

    I will gladly buy you a bucket of beers if Kampfar gets announced.

    Pure Speculation Time!

    They tend to open each round of announcements with a headline band (75 min) who has never done 70k before, and the list of band who fit that bill is getting smaller each year. Dimmu Borg, Demons and Wizards, and Powerwolf seem good possibilities for this, or maybe Gojira (4 reel this time). Maybe even Within Temptation, who seem to have done more North America dates for their new album than they have in years.
