No Canadian dates? That's horsesh**. Buffalo? come on, what a greasy butthole of a city. There should be a Toronto venue or Hamilton.

This is an odd combo, but hey, who knows what sort of crowd decides to go, for both or for one or the other. If not, drink beer while ya wait...it's never a bad idea.

It's the principle DIE. They will already get the money, but maybe by the time they hit the stage, there will be like 10-15 people. Here's what's going to happen. All the little scene kids are going to say: Daath was too loud and played like junk. Cynic was a bunch of old guys playing jazz and math metal, but Dragonforce were just so awesome. Mark my words.

Lol at post 1 - Cynic are the ultimate masturbatory wank, that's what made them so well known in the first place. It's Daath that's out of place here, what a horrible band. Cynic don't play math metal either, the whole of Eagle Nature is 4/4 for example.

In theory, some kind of message would be sent when the crowd is significantly smaller for Dragonforce, however. I understand your dilemma. I guess I just have a high tolerance level for twerps. I mean, in theory, you can legally beat the snot back up their noses durring Daath. =P

I just re-read my first post, and it didn't come out right. Daath is out of place, but a good band nonetheless. Cynic, you observation of Cynic, is that a good thing or a bad thing. If it's bad, than thems is fightin' words. If it's good, then I wholeheartedly salute you with a shot of orange Faygo.

"When yo mom is off to the stoe, tell that b**** to bring home a Faygo. FAAAAYYYGOOOO!!!!!

Wow, Cynic on the bill smack in the middle of sub-par-pseudo death metal and sub-par pseudo power metal. What a sh**ty billing!

AP_ Did you just mention Faygo! hahaha I didn't know you were a juggalo!

It's the best of the good :P Could you imagine an Opeth/Ihsahn/Cynic bill? Maybe when Atheist finish their new material there can be an Atheist/Pestilence/Cynic bill.

It's funny though because it's reminiscent of when Cynic first toured with Cannibal Corpse and seemed out of place.

Bruno, I'm not down with the clown like I used to be, but they're still OK.

Cynic, I would sell organs for the Opeth/Ihsahn/Cynic bill. Yeah, I remember that tour. The term "turd in a punch bowl" applies, but only in reverse.
