Just done the count up and the following bands with multiple nominations are:
3 - Moonsorrow
2 - Marduk, Myrkur, Sigh, Electric Wizard, Autopsy, My Dying Bride

We then have 20 bands with 1 vote.

Using a random number generator, I'm adding another 3 bands from that list, as I think 10 options is a solid base amount to choose from.

Those three random additions are:
Carach Angren
Mgla
Powerwolf

So, here are the 10 bands we are choosing the Sophie headliners from:

Autopsy
Carach Angren
Electric Wizard
Marduk
Mgla
Moonsorrow
My Dying Bride
Myrkur
Powerwolf
Sigh

Vote away - 5 picks again :)

I think we've a bunch of bands in here who are far too big for the Sophie personally but I'll go with the majority!

5pts - Sigh
4pts - Moonsorrow
3pts - Myrkur
2pts - Powerwolf
1pt - Autopsy

If I'm honest, I think all other than Sigh would command a decent crowd on the main stage.

The bands we picked might not have been the right size for the Sophie a few years ago, but now there about right. The three Sophie headliners this year would also bring in descent crowds an the main stage too - and indeed have done before.

5 points - Autopsy
4 points - Sigh
3 points - Electric Wizard
2 points - Marduk
1 point - My Dying Bride

Other than MGLA and Myrkur who I find terminally boring, and Powerwolf who once was more than enough I wouldn't mind any of the other 7.

Still think considering the venues they play, Wizard could still go third on mainstage.

Mine:

5pts - Carach Angren
4pts - Moonsorrow
3pts - My Dying Bride
2pts - Myrkur
1pts - Powerwolf

I love Powerwolf, and they would have gotten 5 on another list, but I think the bill needs more heaviness compared to what we've already chosen.

Latest tally:

22 - Moonsorrow
21 - My Dying Bride
20 - Powerwolf
15 - Sigh
13 - Autopsy / Carach Angren
11 - Myrkur
8 - Electric Wizard
7 - Marduk
5 - Mgla

@Haldamir319, also just wanted to make sure you didn't miss @Lunasee's picks, which were posted a couple of minutes before your last post with the updated tally and weren't included.
