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.

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.
