Didn't stay for the rest. CoB was doing the lame rockstar bullshit where the openers aren't as loud as the headliner, so that kind of hampered the experience. Still a great performance, though my gripes from a year and a half ago remain; still piping in the symphonic elements, clean vocals, and even a riff or two. Valiant effort to get the crowd involved, though the masses of CoB fans weren't really receptive to death metal of this magnitude.

On another note all the bands were charging at least $30 for shirts, which is bullshit.

Yeah $30 for all shirts. It's bullshit, and we have no one but Children of Bodom to thank.

Those asses know that bro teenybopper "metalheads" will shell out $30 for a COB shirt without even thinking of how ridiculous it's priced just because it's at a tour. As a result, the rest of the bands on that tour have to have their shirts at $30 to match the headliner (which, in my opinion, is some bullshit). I found this info from one of the guys from Blood Red Throne when they opened up for Dimmu Borgir last year. Every shirt there was $25 because Dimmu priced it like that.

Last year when I saw Between the Buried and Me, all shirts were like $20 or $15 because that's what BTBAM had. It's really the headliner that has to do with shirt prices and how every other band prices them.

Believe me, I wanted to get an Obscura shirt. But $30, uh fuck that.
Full length album now available!

Interesting, I didn't know that the headliner dictated the shirt pricing at some shows. 30 bucks is bullshit
