I'd say no. BTBAM and CC play bigger venues here than COB do. Especially BTBAM.

Summer Slaughter, BTBAM, and COB all do the same size venue for Chicago.

The real ? is how many people each band can draw when not in a major city like Chicago, NY, LA, Philly. Take them to more of the B level metal cities like St. Louis, Cinci, Columbus, Atlanta, then to the C level cities like KC, Nashville, Louisville, San Antonio and see how well they do. That is what will separate those bands. Most of them will draw well in the larger cities.

The BTBAM/AAL tour last year was held in the same place as the CoB tour this year in Austin (Emo's East - a little under 2,000 capacity, give or take a hundred or so...I think).

I guess it depends on the market.

It's the opposite here in LA.

I would seriously doubt they would pass on European festivals to do Summer Slaughter, which has generally been almost exclusively North American bands in the headlining slots. This, to me, is more likely a Mayhem hint. Mayhem is looking for a big Eurometal act to headline a side stage, kinda like In Flames 2 years ago perhaps. If they are going to go back to 2 side stages, there's only so much crapcore to go around.

Didn't BTBAM just play the Slidebar? COB and CC would never go smaller than HOB nowadays.

Yeah but that was just a super random show announced that day. Slidebar shows don't count. I saw CC headline at The House of Blues and they sold it out. Bodom sold out Yost Theater and that's way bigger then HoB...

I forgot COB played the Yost. I haven't been there, so I wouldn't know how big it is. Is it around the same size as the Grove? I would consider the Slidebar to count. I bet you CC and COB would never even consider playing there. I know COB played the Glass House a few years ago while CC was playing bigger venues.

Yeah, but they did two nights in a row. I went to the first one and it was packed. The year before that they played at The Wiltern.
