That is fukkin' cool, Branded. Glad you will be able to check out the show. Sorry, but I have been to very few concerts, where the headlining band is great, or even spectacular. Most of the time, the middle bands, I.E. second stage bands, are so much better. This is my opinion, of course.

Wow, two Iowa dates. That nearly never happens. We're usually lucky to get one. Too bad Chimaira is all I'd be interested in seeing, and I'm not even that into them.

^^ Hah, believe it or not Montana is actually the meth capital of the U.S. It's absolutely huge in the small towns here and there is a constant back and forth as to whether we are producing or importing the most in the nation. It's gotten significantly better over the last few years as private individuals and businesses have put up millions to advertise about awareness and prevent people from starting up, but it's still a big problem.

LMAO. So the b**** decides to throw in some curse words to try to make his point. I bet you are a little living in your moms basement, pulling in top money as a cashier at McDonalds. Also, look at my profile, I listen to metal. Chimaira is not nu-metal btw. Inbred is WAY off buddy. Where exactly do you live? I'm betting somewhere SOUTH, and also, just because its Southern Indiana, doesn't mean we have sex with our cousins. Sorry to say, but we are still in the north.

P.S. Frats suck. Also, read through what you put on here because what you said made no sense at all in a couple of the sentences. Maybe it's just your lack of grammar skills and spelling skills effecting my judgment on your intelligence.

No i pull in money defending your freedom at camp atterbury so you can defend with words your peice of sheeit town aka evantucky. It's cool that your special (ED?) and you didn't realise that I live in Indy. Chimara is seriously overated like Lamb Of God. Try some real metal jesus christ Piissturd? If that what you think metal is than carry on. And you cant use profanity on this board hence why i misspell my cusswords goof. BTW Falloutboy called and wanted there crappy hair emoish style back.

NICE MAN. You are semi creative. Chimaira is def. not overrated at all, i rarely ever hear anything about them, although I will agree with you on the LoG statement. This also doesn't mean that they are bad, just that you want to be rebellious and not like them. I seriously can't believe how big of an idiot you are though. You just keeping making stupid comments over and over, so I'm done with you.

If the musik sounds good, I listen to it. Metalcore, or whatever...I am not that particular. I prefer heavy metal, though, over rock. I don't really like Black metal, though, the vocals grate on me.
