Swedish melodic death metalers Soilwork are returning as a headliner. Their sound is a fusion of the classic Gothenburg metal sound with power-groove riffs. However, in their most recent albums, Soilwork has also introduced elements from other genres such as blues rock and alternative metal, and adopted a more melodic sound. Their most recent work has more singing and lighter melodies than their earlier work, as well as a more polished production.
Jeff Loomis (http://www.jeffloomis.com)
Jeff is widely known as the former lead guitarist from Nevermore. Honorably, Jeff is noted as a player of many influences and styles, and is debatably seen as one of the world’s most talented and gifted metal guitarists. It has been said that Jeff takes classic techniques he learned from listening to legends like Jason Becker and Yngwie Malmsteen as a teen and applying his own ingenuity, Loomis has carved his own niche and created an instantly recognizable style.
Canada’s very own Blackguard returns! Blackguard’s sound is unique and incorporates many subgenres of metal such as folk, epic, and melodic death; their most recent album “Firefight” clearly displays Blackguard’s “epic metal” sound. It has been argued that this Canadian ensemble clearly displays the immense skill it takes to assert flawless execution in their live shows. If you haven’t ever seen Blackguard live, they’ll blow you away with their immense stage presence.
