I prefer Periphery to Exhumed and Goatwhore, but not for this tour. Hell fucking no.

Goatwhore is bigger than JFAC.

Not only are they older and have had an impact on the underground scene longer than JFAC ever will, they've pretty much been riding a huge wave of popularity since Alchemy Of The Black Sun Cult came out, but ESPECIALLY since Carving Out The Eyes Of God came out.

JFAC was pretty much universally reviled by the metal community until Ruination came out in 2009. Before then, they were just a blip on the scene for metalheads (although admittedly, they were huge for deathcore) that just happened to be opening local shows in Arizona. I'd equate JFAC 7 years ago to, say, how big Rings of Saturn is now.

In 2006, Goatwhore landed the opening spot on Celtic Frost's reunion tour. Nuff said.

Most facebook fans "like" them because of Doom, and most of them won't come out to see them. Last time I saw them, 2/3 of the crowd had left after Whitechapel.
