And if that wasn’t enough, in the run-down of what’s hot in 2010 (aptly titled ‘the 2010 Hitlist’) there is yet more Roadrunner mentions, with Alexisonfire, Airbourne, Heaven & Hell, Soulflyl, Hatebreed, Trivium, Black Stone Cherry, Atreyu, DragonForce, Killswitch Engage Taking Dawn, DevilDriver, Opethl, Stone Sour, Within Temptation, Dream Theater, Delain, Rob Zombie, Megadeth, Cradle of Filth, Lamb+Of+God, Machine Head and Coheed & Cambria!
