As dumb as this sounds, when I saw Lamb of God in NYC I asked them why they were playing smaller venues, and they directed me to this guy to ask, and he said that it's to prepare to do big Amphitheaters in the summer, rather sure he said they'd headline too. LoG really don't sell enough CDs to do amphi's though.

I still think they're going to coheadline with Five Finger Death Punch

Well, Slayer plays amphitheatres (or at least has played them as recently as 2006 without any co-headliner), and the last 2 Lamb of God albums have sold better than the last 2 Slayer albums. I'm sure LOG wouldn't fill them up, but getting them to half capacity probably wouldn't be a tough feat.

Metal is proof that Satan loves us and wants us to be happy.

Can't say I expected Atlantic City, but I'd be down to go for sure.
