exactly. cannibal corpse's probability of expanding themselves to new audiences is pretty much at its peak. Everyone who is going to know about them already knows about them. That's why Mayhem Fest isn't going to do anything for them.

i forgot every cannibal corpse fan was a fan from the womb

youre right, there isnt any 15 year old kids who thinks suicide silence is the heaviest thing ever, oblivious to anything that doesnt enter their facebook feeds, who would be exposed to cannibal at mayhem and become fans

i'm saying that those kids in love with suicide silence know of cannibal corpse. they are a non-factor to cannibal corpse when wanting to "gain new fans" or whatever.

I think you're not giving Avenged Sevenfold fans enough credit. They're aware of real metal which means they're probably aware of Cannibal Corpse.

Cannibal Corpse would play to many more of their own fans a night on their own tour than shoehorned to the 2nd stage at Mayhem Fest with DooDoo ButtNuggets headlining.

I stated they're likely aware of who they are, but maybe the live performance that they happen to see at the show they go to could push them in that direction. I'm not saying that every A7X fan is going to show up at 3 pm to check out Cannibal Corpse out of curiosity and that all those fans will buy up their whole discography and see them on their next headlining tour. But if they get maybe 5-10 new fans per show, I don't think that's unrealistic to assume.

Didn't Testament just open for Lamb of God? It's the same thing, unless you're headlining stadiums you can use the exposure.
