How does this tour fit so many bands into the schedule per night? Do they play really short sets, or start really early, or have multiple stages?

All three pretty much. Usually the only bands I want to see get shitty sets so I don't go.

Lol @ all of the stupid kids on the Facebook page saying this lineup "sucks". :tp:

That said, I can't wait to hit this tour up in April. Finally get to see High on Fire :rocker:

Seeing High On Fire and Municipal Waste on 4/20... Should be interesting haha

Nope:

Contrary to the Metal Alliance dates on 4/18 and 4/20, High of Fire will play Roadburn 2013 just as planned! Word came in from management 5 minutes ago!

That's easily the worst part about it being on the NEMHF. The entire day will be crammed with a ton of core bands and crap I don't wanna hear and all the opening bands will be regulated to 15 minute sets. I'm once again gonna get the real nudered version of Holy Grail's set.

Agreed.

Kinda bummed actually this is hitting NEMHF. Although this tour with (most likely) some other awesome bands will make for a great day, I just don't want these bands to get super short sets because of it.

First 2 basically. I'm pretty sure the tour last year started at like 5:30 with the first band playing. And other than Devildriver who headlined I don't think any of the other bands played for longer than 35 minutes.

I'm sorta indifferent to good tours being added to metal fest now. Most of the time it sucks because of the short set times, and the seemingly endless amount of core bands in between the bands I wanna see. However sometimes it works out and a few good tours are mixed together, which then takes off some of the core bands on the bill. Either way if this tour is part of the Metal Fest I'm going, even though it completely sucks that High On Fire won't be there :snivel:

I really want to go to this but goddamn do i hate Hollywood, Driving up to hollywood(especially leaving hollywood), and more importantly the House of Blues in hollywood. Fuck Hollywood up it's righteous ass.

I really thought this show was gonna hit up the "observatory" next to my house since almost every tour seems to be hitting that spot up now lately :bouville:

As much as I would love to attend this show I'm probably gonna skip out. Then again I say this kind of shit about a lot of shows and then I end up going so will see what happens.. :hmm:

Revocation and Vektor is possible.

THIS. I don't understand why they wouldn't bring it to Toronto when Anthrax and Exodus usually do pretty well here. In fact, a lot of bands do well here compared to some places in the US.

over half of the last anthrax/testament tour was canadian dates, including toronto, which is probably why metal alliance lacks them. aside from vancouver, which is a repeat.

They probably have less bands this year so Anthrax can play other songs from their discography, since Among the Living is almost an hour long.

It would have been really nice to get a Metal Alliance date for Toronto. I'm sure the promoters would have loved to have booked one too considering last years sold out.

However most of the bands either just played here already and could be under contract to not tour through the same market again. I checked and Anthrax headlined here on September 29, High on Fire on November 26 and Holy Grail (supporting Sonata Arctica) on December 11 so I can understand them skipping here this year. That being said I would still love to see Among The Living played in its entirety.

Yes, but Exodus hasn't had a decent timeslot in Toronto since 2010, and that combination of bands would still sell for sure. Unless Exodus is doing a North America tour in May (which I think they might because of MDF/I thought they were working on an album for then), then Toronto really needs this tour.

Also, I'll take any chance I can get to see Holy Grail when there are other good bands on the bill because they rarely headline. I saw their tour with Cauldron, which was awesome, but other than that, I don't think they'll be headlining anytime soon.

I think the appeal here is Anthrax's album in full and Exodus. I still think this would sell well enough in Toronto to be worth it.

Yep I remember that. I've only seen Exodus once and that was 4 years ago. It's a cool little place. Probably smaller than Outland. I'd buy tix soon if you do go. Vore will help sell that place out quickly.

I really hope The Observatory doesn't fuck up Napalm Deaths sound like the last time I saw them over there. Jesus Christ they were god awful and by the time Suffer the Children came on i pretty much couldn't tell what I was hearing...pretty lame.

And I agree with RJturtle. Observatory is way too small for a show like this. I had a pretty uncomfortable time in the tiny little pit floor for for the municipal waste/napalm death tour, I really can't imagine how clogged up the floor is going to get for this show. Definitely not gonna be in the pit for this one...
