I'm surprised Drover hung around as long as he did considering he was basically a fill-in while his brother was there and ended up sticking around for a long time by 'Deth standards. He also has...

I'll split the difference. 60 minutes is a bit short, 75 minutes seems fair for an intense headlining set for a "heavy" "veteran" band. That is usually 14-16 songs for most. 60 minutes as a...

I'm shocked Sinclair is that small. It feels bigger than that. That capacity makes it smaller than the middle east downstairs (something like 660).

Valid point, there are lots of ways to get to...

Not that big a drop. Royale holds about 800 for shows, Sinclair about 650. If it got pushed to Palladium upstairs or a Brighton venue, that would be a very bad sign.

I'm actually kinda happy -...

This has to be one of the weirdest tour postponements/cancellations in recent memory.

We had Wolf and Raven in Worcester, but no Victoria's Secret.

Delain was the best band of the night, I thought. I may be biased though, I love their vibe.

I thought so. The dude up there looked like a younger version of Mark, I was wondering what was going on. Any ideas as to why Morton wasn't there?

In Flames without Jesper will never return to anything resembling their older approach. They started to sound different with him, but now the band's interest in material he wrote is waning even more.

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...

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.
