To get an idea of what would be popular?
He pays attention - especially when I PM the top requests to him :)
Back at the end of Feb I had collated over 1,400 requests from people here on the forum and on facebook and sent them on to Andy. And he responded to say thanks so he definitely looked at it.
And this is the list that was sent:
22 Amon Amarth
14 Epica, Hypocrisy, Wintersun
13 Blind Guradian, King Diamond, Within Temptation
12 Dark Tranquillity
, Demons & Wizards, Kalmah
11 Accept, Anthrax, Avantasia, Iced Earth, Immortal, Insomnium, Opeth, Therion
09 Arch Enemy, Devin Townsend, Equilibrium, Powerwolf, Van Canto
08 Alestorm, Bel'akor, Borknagar, Gamma Ray, Korpiklaani, Symphony X
07 Agalloch, Anathema, Firewind, Ghost, Gojira, Jon Oliva's Pain, Ne Obliviscaris, Omnium Gatherum, Orden Ogan, Rhapsody, Running Wild, Twisted Sister
06 Bolt Thrower, Carcass
, Diablo Swing Orchestra, Dimmu Borgir, Emperor/Ihsahn, Katatonia, Leaves eyes
, My Dying Bride, Septic Flesh, Slayer, Solitude Aeturnus, Sonata Arctica, The Crown, Watain, Xandria
So we've already got 5/14 bands from that group!
