Bleh, some of my picks may vaguely fit into those genres, but mostly if I were to pick for those genres I just wouldn't bother so I'm just going to pick a few I like. Disqualify me if you want but it's likely no one else would pick them anyway :lol:

Kingmaker: Fen, Solstifir, Eluveitie, Battle Beast
Other/Mix: Nydvind, Ereb Altor, Black Messiah, XIV Dark Centuries, Thyrfing, Einherjer

I really struggled with picking melodic and prog bands as it's not the type of thing I usually listen to :lol: I included some melo-death because that counts as melodic right? :eyes:

I have to say, I'm most disappointed no one else has nominated Evil Scarecrow! I suggest we give them an automatic spot on the bill to give this whole thing a sense of believability :D

So here's where all the actual extreme metal (what little even counts or made it) gets filtered out. Again.

5 - Vuur, Dying Fetus, Boris
4 - Alcest, Anathema, WITTR
3 - Power Trip, Chthonic, Borknagar

Couldn't care less about the rest, I just don't actively dislike these.
2 - Einherjer, Whispered, Twilight Force
1 - Warbringer, Angra, Unleash the Archers

I will never understand the obsession with Fen in the UKBM underground. If they're crap playing tiny venues in London, they'll probably be crap on the mainstage. I don't even dislike post-black metal, there's plenty of decent albums in the scene but I can't get to the end of an album of theirs.

Kind of disappointed Vuur isn't a top pick, but get they're not big over here - still fit the melodic clean vocal sort of metal people always ask for on here. Would be great if they could play same day as Devin so Anneke could sing with him. (I know it's just a game, and I'm not getting overly invested in it, it's just the most interesting thread for a long time)

Must say that it's still incomparably better than this year.
