I'm not a big hardcore guy but I've seen these guys twice in the last 4 months and they really brought it live both times. They have a definite metal tinge to their approach.

I always thought All Shall Perish >> Suicide Silence, so to hear Eddie is trying to do Mitch's highs is pretty disappointing.

I can deal with deathcore if the band can play. Suicide Silence are...

Do bands always tour with a full time merch person? I was under the impression that at times touring bands found people locally (friends, fans, club employees) to help run the tables. Same thing...

Palladium downstairs, when the balcony is open, holds 1750 or so. If the balcony is closed that number drops into the 1300/1400 range, but it will be open for this.

Upstairs holds about 350-400.

The Forum booking screams of overconfidence in having 2 LA bands with enough connections (or in Suicidal's case, possibly leftover gang members) to get it to half-full or more.

Now, if only they could find a competent replacement for King, they'd sound really good. Maybe that banjo dude is available.

I can agree with this. LoG came along and started to fill a void (Pantera-style stuff was not the rage in 03-05 when LoG "made the leap") but at the same time SF was one of a handful of bands with a...

Battlecross is the new Mutiny Within or Blackguard, they'll be a part of any tour they can get. Have to respect that.

NEMHF is 4/17-4/18-4/19 (Thurs-Sat). IE looks like one of the Saturday headliners potentially.

Yep you're right, Agganis is like 7-8k or something. I think DCU in Worcester is like 12k?

The Garden can be 17k+ for concerts, even more for acts that do a center stage if they pack the floor. ...
