Why do you guys like this band? Not trying to get a rise out of you, I want legitimate reasons.
I saw them playing on the Dethklok/Mastodon tour and honestly thought it was one of the worst performances I'd ever seen. Their guitarist came out first and repeated some really heavy/awesome riff for a bit (had some effects if I recall correctly), and then the rest of the band came out and absolutely ruined whatever energy had just been built up.
Never seen them live, so I can't comment on that. All I know is that they sound great on album and I feel like their live shows would be intense.
I'm praying that one of those TBA dates is in Seattle.
