A metal elitist lauding Emmure's live show? What is this world coming to?

I can and do judge things objectively and a big part of the reason I developed such a strong hatred for Emmure was based on their live performance. The first time I saw them at NEMHF 2009, I honestly didn't hate them. I thought Goodbye to the Gallows was a respectable deathcore album and I was intrigued to see them. After that performance, I realized just how bad they were. Frankie acted like he was a rapper (The whole band was wearing Fubu Sweatsuits, I shit you not) and more importantly, he sounded like complete shit. I saw them a few months later at Thrash and Burn and they were even worse. Thankfully I haven't seen them again and to this day, they are still worst live band I've ever seen.

No, no, just the only bands we saw until the weather cleared up a bit! We caught Machine Head amongst others! I'll do the review sometime soon!

So now we judge based on what they wear?

A band's image is their most important part!

Would go to the first leg of this tour, would go to the second leg. Great lineups every time. More people should be happy Lionheart is on this; perfect opener for Hatebreed!

No I was just pointing that out. It was more the cocky, hip-hop stage presence (Frankie especially) than the clothes they were wearing

The only valid complaint you have in there is that Frankie sounded like shit. Also, since you saw them at Thrash and Burn, I assume you also saw Oceano. I'm not sure how you could think Emmure was worse than them.
