During Mark's "we'd like to thank all the bands" spiel and naming them, the crowd went nuts when he mentioned Revocation, and non enthusiastic cheering for Battlecross. When I was there for BC, not that many people were paying attention to them. Granted, the World Series was being televised on all the TVs at the bar and it's StL, but still. Revocation clearly ahould be billed above Battlecross. They would probably only get time for one more song, but still.
I agree that Revocation should be billed above Battlecross now. But i can kind of see why Battlecross is billed higher. They absolutely destroyed at Mayhem Fest and have been on a tear for the past year. I think they'll be more popular than Revocation by next year maybe. Yes Revocation has been doing it longer, and their music is arguably better and are way more popular worldwide... For this tour and these fans I agree that Revocation would be more popular. But if you put these bands on a North American tour with Lamb of God or Killswitch Engage I'd be willing to bet Battlecross would be more popular.
