Alright, so, here's the deal

Let's say you've been put in charge of booking every band for the first ever official Metal Archives music festival. This fest is spread over, say, 3 or 4 days. Who do you pick for each day?

In Flames (only playing material from the last few albums)
Virgin Steele (same)
Six Feet Under
Babymetal
Five Finger Death Punch

No, more seriously (and not necessarily in order)...

Atlantean Codex
Avantasia
Craven Idol
Archspire
Oranssi Pazuzu
Primordial
1914
Iron Maiden

Visigoth
Immolation
Mare Cognitum
Tribulation
Panopticon
Blood Incantation
The Ruins of Beverast
Judas Priest

Traveler
Ulcerate
Obscura
Havukruunu
Unto Others
Anaal Nathrakh
Cannibal Corpse
Black Sabbath

That's a good start.

I'm cooking up a batch of popcorn for the upcoming fight about more "questionable" bands.

Assuming there'd be multiple venues, here would be my pitch for a Maryland Deathfest Baltimore Soundstage stage diving allowed bill for a single day. All of these bands have played this venue at this fest in the past.

-doors-
Bound By the Grave
No/Mas
Cloud Rat
Malignancy
Tomb Mold
Full of Hell
Defeated Sanity
Insect Warfare (reunion)
Cryptopsy (None So Vile set - they did in fact play this back in 2017)

Actually somewhat curated so that we don't have too many consecutive bands that sound the same and even threw in local openers.

Sabbat (jpn)
Abigail
Raven
Satan
Ironsword
Dark Quarterer
Briton Rites
Syphilitic Vaginas
Mi'gauss
Brocas Helm
Vomitor
Pentacle
Ares Kingdom
K├Ârgull The Exterminator
Voivod
Varathron
The Meads of Asphodel


Would probably die raging to a line up like this. It also has enough variety in styles to keep things interesting, without clashing. Split over 4 days It'd be one I'd travel overseas for too.

Magnificent, you will need about 12 bands a day for 5 days or more than one stage! And put MF and KD on at the same time on different stages and see what happens! Imagine the King running from one stage to the other between songs!
