I mean we've got a female-fronted band (Arch Enemy), a band of females (Crucified Barbara), and a couple of bands with females in them (Therion, Ensiferum) etc.
But nothing like Delain, Xandria, Nightwish, Epica, Tristania from cruises past.
Really hoping we get at least one of Amaranthe, Revamp, Pythia, Within Temptation, Diabulus in Musica, Serenity to fill that current void :)
I kinda hope we don't. Like maybe Epica or Xandria would be okay. Any of the bands you listed would be stuff I skip out on, pretty much. We would need to balance these out by also having some more brutal bands, not prog, not old school, not rock that kind of crosses over into metal... just really hard-hitting, testosterone-fueled (heh, yeah, the irony) metal.
Okay, I lied... if Within Temptation goes on the boat and brings Xzibit, I will come at least once. No way I'd ever miss that!
