Fair enough.

On the Trivium / Devildriver tour I think a meet and greet with Trivium was $45 (with a CD) and Devildriver was either $65 or $75

This keeps happening to him, because he's stupid enough to keep accepting invitations to things that he's going to get zero reception at.

Twice he has been at Comic Con in London, with other wrestlers and sportsmen, and every time they get barely anyone wanting autographs because the place is full of Doctor Who and Game of Thrones fans. It's sad that genuine sports stars (one year the England World Cup-winning team from 1966 was there) end up sitting around all day with no interest, but it's because they're in the wrong place.

Go to a sports convention, numbnuts.

Double standard is fucking hilarious.
I don't see a double standard. What Gorguts does is very different from most of the modern technical death metal bands. They have complex song structures, but they primarily focus on creating dissonant riffs, whereas newer bands tend to utilize a lot of shredding. I'll agree that the term wankery is often improperly used to write off anything that's technical though.

People who have met him. I know, it's dumb to go by word of mouth, but it is the overwhelming opinion of him.
