Thank you! Thank you Thank you!

something I finally agree with you on 100% to the MAX!!! Great Post Ravenheart! I totally agree with you brother!. I'm going to use this quote every time I here people run their yaps about how Sepultura is a " Fake Tribute Cover Band" or some bullshit to that extent.

I'd say a band becomes a cover or tribute band when they lack an important original member(or members) AND don't release new material for 10 years or so. One without the other is fine, but combine the two and I don't think it deserves tribute band status.
