Yeah, there's no doubt about that at all. Was a horrible tour for them to be on. Completely seated venue probably didn't help their few fans either. But I notice you guys all seem to just like how... Chaotic they are. Just pure rage in musical format. Will have to check them out when I'm in that mindset.

...EXPLAIN!
Same here. They didn't put on one of the worst performances but I wasn't the least bit impressed. No one seemed very amused except for the 3 guys going apeshit in the pit.

woah a seated venue? That is just awful for a hardcore band, there was seats at my venue but it's mostly GA. Converge must have felt extremely awkward playing there.

Not just any venue with seats either. Was at the most prestigious classical music venue in Vancouver. Like, the place where symphonies play. Saw Opeth play there back in 2008, which was a great atmosphere. Just funny because everyone who works there is an elderly classical music elitist.

Picture converge playing here:

That's a picture of the actual inside.

That might be one of the funniest things I've ever pictured.

I wouldn't want to see any metal band in that venue. But I saw Converge on the Mastoklok tour and I thought they were awesome, I loved all the bands on that tour. And I will definitely be at the NYC show for Converge and Trap Them!!

It certainly didn't work for Converge, but like I said, it was absolutely incredible for Opeth. Seeing a black metal show there would probably also be pretty amazing. With the right lighting, it looks like some terrifying old cathedral Converge just... Yeah. Not the right place for them.

huh???? Converge and Mastodon have toured together many times before that. Off the top of my head, Converge/American Nightmare/Mastodon (around the time of Lifesblood, I think), Converge/Mastodon/The Bronx, think they did some dates with Isis too. Also a tour with Priestess. I completely agree that they're out of place with Dethklok (who isn't out of place touring with a fake band?) but Converge and Mastodon have a very long history together.



Converge is one of the greatest live bands of all time. Wish this tour would hit Atlanta.

Yeah, I meant that more towards Dethklok.

The Gibson isn't quite like tha place, but very similiar and I saw GWAR there a few years back haha. Other than the small opening up front for a pit, the rest of the place is like that, nicely seated and what not.
