heh, who put this lineup together?...

All good bands in their own right but kind of mish-mashed. Unearth is the least interesting of the 4 for me and I can see them sharing a bill with Devil Driver...but Dimmu and Kataklysm?...Thats the main event for me.

This tour will be cool as long as Devildriver's bus careens off of a cliff on the way to the first venue!

Devildriver puts on a sick live show. The circle pits they organize are massive. Never seen the other bands live, but it's a sick line-up and I'm definatly getting a ticket.

Unearth gave an AMAZING show last night. Slayer is always amazing, but Unearth took the show.

That is a crazy lineup. I guess they are aiming for variety and exposing fans of all the bands to different styles and bands than they'd normally listen to. I'm not sure how well that really works but I'd love to see them all play.

Sadly, I have to wait until August to see Dimmu Borgir at Wacken Open Air in Germany. My sadness is only lessened by the fact that I'll have more Metal shoved up my arse in August than I ever dreamed possible, especially when I realize that I don't really even like Dimmu Borgir...

That's a really weird line-up. All of the bands are good in their own way, but the crowds will have such a mix of different fans.

I dont really like Dimmu, they have a couple tracks but the whole hail satan black metal sh** i just never could get into hard core. I saw them at Ozzfest at Tinley Park that few years back, and they helped put me right to sleep, and it was a good sleep, i was out cold, i woke up at the end of Slayers set somehow. Devildriver is f***ing so cool and insane, they were sick with Gwar!. Dez has those f***ing lungs and hes a short dude hahahaha. I think this is going to be sick, ill be gone probly by Dimmu, HoB Chicago, May 2nd eh? sick ill be there for sure.

I've been wanting to see DevilDriver for a while now. Dimmu's okay, but I saw Unearth a while back and didn't care for the live show - I think their sound guy was asleep or something...

Good lineup. I could certainly do without Unearth though. I'm not much for the core-ish sh**.

lol you know when you're a black metal head WhEn U tYpE LyK ThIs.

No ones walking about A7X either. I agree, very odd fans are gonna be there. Black Metal rules though Dimmu are f***ing amazing live. I JUST listened to In Sorte before ie ever came out. Great sh**. I love The Serpentine Offering and The Chosen Legacy, when he says, IN SORTE DIABOLI hellhammer goes f***in insane. Def. looking forward to that show. Esspecially with Kataklysm and DD. not a big fan of Unearth but when i saw em with slayer, they're a lot better live, and heavier than on track.
