Wonder if he's just blowing smoke or if this is for real. But as I've always said, metal crowds in America do suck. Hope this isn't permanent.

Hopefully it doesn't turn out to be true, but if it does, I'm really glad I got to see them. They rule live.

They can cry me a fucking river. Thankfully we have many other bands who appreciate anything they get anywhere.

It may seem like he's just crying about it, because that's how it comes off, but a lot of what he said is true. I admit, I haven't been to death metal shows in Europe myself, but from videos I've seen and the size of the crowds that attend, it's much better over there. Here a band of Malevolent Creation's popularity level probably struggles to make ends meet. I doubt that touring the US is financially viable for them and that's the same reason so many death metal bands don't tour here often. Also, I'd like to point out that he did not say they are going to stop playing shows in the US altogether, they're just done touring.

You're completely right. Any legitimate metalhead can tell you the crowds and sales in Europe are much, MUCH better than over here. Yes, he's whining but he is completely right. I doubt these guys even make ends meet with the scene being the way it is in the US.

Well, maybe they shouldn't play on the same day as Immortal then. Bastards.

This is one very good point. And yes, U.S. crowds fucking blow compared to Europe. Anyone who's even seen a live metal show video can conclude that. But the way they are handling this makes them look like a bunch of bitches. I hope they do realize that they still have fans, from casual to die hard in the U.S. and that this is one big slap in the face for all those people. A dick move if I'd say so myself.
