You've got a point and it's not like I have to sit through this since I live clear across the country. I like about 10 of those bands and there are another 3 or 4 I could sit through, but the rest range from pretty bad to flat-out fucking abysmal. Like I said, it's not such much the announcement of California Metalfest that has me excited, it's potential tour with Killswitch playing AJOB start to finish with Unearth and Shadows Fall opening. A couple weeks ago on Facebook their bassist Mike D'Antonio was taking fan questions and he said they had a special tour planned for the winter with some old friends, so I'm assuming this is it.
