They need to pay tribute to Dimebag f***in' Darrell! RIP Brother.

I love how Trivium have honored Dimebag, playing his guitars and Pantera's music. I went to see them in Philly months ago, and Matt Heafy stated. "Love us or hate us, you need to pay some f***in' respect to Dimebag f***in' Darrell!" Amen to that.

And Judas Priest...bow down to them too.

I think it would eventually lead into that although they may not actually say it.I mean they are honoring Priest.The other band's being mentioned had a definite influence on METAL.Completely regardles of whether or not they actually were.SO ON THAT NOTE KISS ROCK'S & QUEEN ROCK'S DEF LEPPARD used to ROCK.AND PRIEST NEVER STOPPED.It's all about history gentlemen.The disrespecting of history is how you get COHEED & CAMBRIA.
