I actually really liked these guys when they opened for Symphony X. The crowd kind of hated them, but that's the nature of touring to promote your band. They just need to be a little more... unique? I don't know, they don't stick out from the crowd enough for me to really love 'em.

I would recommended seeing them headline they are fantastic. I hungout with the singer after the show and he said they get on any tour they can just to get their name out there. Real nice down to earth guys and gal.

Seem like good people and they work hard but I find their music painfully mediocre and boring.

well basically it seemed like an extra set (perhaps almost exactly what they are playing on the Kamelot tour coming up, not sure!)

I get a little bit of that feeling, because I was like... this sounds like Children of Bodom (who I enjoy)... so yeah, some differentiating factor would be better, but we'll see!

LOL that is exactly what happened here, even the mosh pit (is a pit of like 3 people still a pit?)


I have to say they still put the same energy out when we saw them playing for us 20 as the Symphony X show (way more than 20)

When you can't afford to see them all, yes.

I was asking myself the same thing about the mosh pit and weather or not to include the band in it because a couple of the guys kept bumping into the singer and guitarist. haha.

The crowd (myself and my friend included) didn't like them because they're on the wrong tours. They always get put on tours that have nothing to do with their style of music. Months before that they were opening for Deicide, fucking really?

I will admit that they have a ton of energy on stage and are having a fun time on there, which is what counts in the end
