Of the bands so far listed, who would you prefer to see as a headliner over Liege Lord? The band has 3 fantastic records in my opinion with "Master Control" being an absolute classic.

Seems they (the Germans?) have a thing for Americans and their metal. Personally I would not have minded having Legend and Quartz as headliners. :wink: Still I'm sure Oliver knows his audience, as well as his own preferences.

Is the band even still together? I heard they kicked out Tate and his ridiculous business tactics and formed a new band with the new vocalist in Crimson Glory.
Well, they are doing gigs, so that's a pretty good indication that the band still exists :wink:
They are mostly playing old songs (up to "Empire"). Can't be bad, huh? KIT-approved imo!
For the time coming they can still use the 'Queensrÿche'-moniker. However, a court session has been planned to sort out who has the rights to use the bandname, the remaining members or Geoff Tate.

Actually Queensryche will give gigs as "Queensryche" and Tate (with a personal band) as "The Voice of Queensryche". The whole things turned to a parody, considering the rumors about pre-recorded vocals, and an official statement from the band denying this.

On topic, Liege Lord is an excellent choice, but I don't know if they should be headliners. Once again, we will be there anyway.

They did not play after his death...only when he died...now they split up completely
Is that correct? Tony Moore does seem to have disappeared completely, but some recent posts (from DVS I believe) seem to suggest they will continue in some capacity.
on their fb page they just wrote something about new songs. not sure if under the name of Riot though.. :|

Hi Friends,

Finally we are able to announce our big Saturday headliner. We tried the band since KIT 1 and now it becomes reality: Legendary WARLORD with William J Tsamis and Mark Zonder will headline the KEEP IT TRUE Saturday. This will be the first show of WARLORD since the two shows in 2002 in Wacken and Itzehoe. There will also be a brand new album released in 2013. So be prepared for the mighty return of WARLORD. Here are also some words from William J Tsamis himself:

“Warlord is very happy to be coming to the Keep It True festival this April 2013. As you may know, there was a lot of tension whether Warlord should play Keep It True or Headbangers Open Air. I have great respect for the promoters of HOA and I have great respect for Oliver Weinsheimer, the promoter of Keep It True. In the end, however, our decision was based on one simple factor - and that was "the fans." Apart from researching the venues and corroborating with our peers from other respected metal bands, it all came down to what the fans were saying. Our intelligence sources followed numerous discussions on the internet, and it was clear that the fans at Keep It True seemed to want Warlord more than the fans of Headbangers Open Air. Thus, "Warlord is coming like a thunderstorm to deliver "epic power metal" in a way that you cannot even imagine . . . and we are doing it for "the fans" because we love "the fans." In fact, to us, it's all about "the fans". So when the fans tell us by a 10 to 1 margin that we should play Keep It True, we listen to the fans because our radar is up and running and our satellites are watching the situation. We hope the energy and affection at Keep it True will be able to match the passion, power and shock that Warlord will bring, because what we have in store for you is something that you cannot even imagine!" Until then, all the best, William J Tsamis“

I'm pretty sure some incarnation of the Damien King is singing.
Laugh at you in ecstasy, wallow in the gore.
Blast you with their twisted minds, behold the Dogs Of War.

I heard rumors the Hammerfall singer will take care of the vocal duties.

Edit:

Hahah. Dan, you suck.
