Out of the 63 concerts I saw last year, I rated Nightwish as my favorite. 

I do wish Floor would stop wearing these Xena Warrior Princess costumes on stage and wear something a little more akin to her normal everyday style.

I believe you are the only person in the world with this line of thought.   :lol

Yeah, I think her recent outfits have been amazing.

Yes, I love Floor's onstage style. In general, I think it would be cool if the men of metal would stop letting themselves get shown up so badly by the women. I'm not saying I want people coming out in full cosplay, but a little effort beyond "jeans and band t-shirt" would be cool to see more often.

Well, it depends from band to band and also it's up down to the individual, I guess.

For example, I believe that Steve Harris is just comfortable wearing shorts and a shirt with no sleeves, and he doesn't do that just because it's the singer gets to be over the top with the costumes.

In Nightwish, Tuomas must be more comfortable with simpler clothes, and I believe Floor choses her own outfits as well, I can't imagine a marketing guy sitting with her to pick up clothes.

One band I find jarring is King Diamond. Ok, he's the guy with all the attention, but still seeing a guy with a full face paint surrounded by people in random clothes, including a guitarist with a baseball hat, kinda kills the whole atmosphere on stage. I don't say they should all use the corpse paint but at least fit a bit more with the imaginery of the band and the stage scenery....?
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

Not sure where to put this, but Exit Eden is coming out with another new album.  They're a band with a few different female singers doing symphonic metal covers of pop songs.

They have Marco Hietala guesting on their first-ever original song and it's good to see him!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R5p917OyAnI
