hmm. I'd think they'd be higher, especially with all the fuss around their last two albums, but Damnation Festival is kind of an odd fit for them...although Jesu did play last year...

I am ashamed to say I agree with his views this time (especially because of his abbreviation ) but I think Dillinger Escape Plan is more popular in America than Anaal Nathrakh, and would headline. It shouldn't be that way, I know, but it would be.

I meant that if a Damnation-type Fest happened in America that no way would DEP headline. If it was a bigger festival, absolutely. Hell, if this happened in America, I'd put Alcest above DEP too.

You're kidding, bro. DEP have tons of exposure. And Black Bubblegum. Anaal Nathrakh have zero exposure.

That's because they'd never played a live show until April. Which happens to be when I saw them.

This is what I was thinking, exactly.

Don't get me wrong though, I'd take Anaal Nathrakh over DEP any day.

I doubt it man. I think Dillinger is way more popular than Anaal Nathrakh.

I know. But when Anaal Nathrakh played the US, they headlined Maryland Deathfest over Blood Duster, Dying Fetus, Impaled, etc. I know they aren't nearly as popular as DEP, but in an American-version of a fest like Damnation, I'm positive they'd be above DEP because DEP is from the USA and tours here more often than Anaal Nathrakh.

Damn, bitches. Ain't that hard to explain. Do you obviously think Gorguts is more popular than Converge? Because they headlined over them at MDF this year.

Hell, Quo Vadis headlined over Beneath The Massacre at some fest in Michigan a year ago. Explain that one.

Guess I don't really know how Damnation Festival usually works. MDF is a pretty special situation since headlining spots are basically reserved for legendary bands, first time playing the States, reunion shows or last shows before retirement, that sort of thing. Didn't know Damnation would be similar.

I would use another US metalfest as an example, but I don't know any
