Not hatin Jaowell... if I were you I'd feel snubbed missing out on some sick tours that skipped Canada too. For me, these are two of my all-time favorite bands, I've seen them seperate several times- so I'd love to see them together in Chi-town.

No they just never apealed to me. They are deathcore very few deathcore bands are any apealing to me. Not to say they are not good but I just never got into them. I saw them live was not impressed neither was august burn red. Carnifix and BDM where good. obituary owned as well did COB.

I agree Pacific Coliseum, like 16000 ppl. AWESOME to see metal that big. I'm glad, because it's the only music that still makes sense anymore. I'm excited. In flames is like my fave band ever, I love KSE and am stoked for there new album. As well as I like Protest and Between the Buried & Me, has really grown on me too. From a musical standpoint, "colors" is a masterpiece and Progressive Metalcore?, that's like the most ridiculously difficult genre ever.

The reason why In Flames isn't playing south of the border is because they love Canada, also Protest the Hero is from Toronto so all the pieces fit the puzzle

I did. Quite a few times. Never really got me hooked though. Could have been there guitar tones. The riffs were really hit and miss for me. I preferred there clean stuff. Depending on the new KSE album I might have to check this show out in van city. PC would be an awesome venue too.

VanCity prelsale tickets from the Fox go on sale on friday too, and the password is Flames.

When I saw In Flames last time with ATR and Gojira they said they would shoot their next DVD in Vancouver... that would be sweet. I will admit I am more excited to see KSE, they are much more entertaining when they play a show. They still have fun. In Flames seem too well polished, if that makes sense, too set in their routine.

It's always awesome when a band like Killswitch Engage goes from playing in the Headbangers Hall in Vancouver to playing in the Pacific Coliseum, which seats 16 thousand.

This show is going to be phenomenal!

France has gojira AND Hacride, two of my favorite bands right now, but they have yet to win a single war, sooo.....p***ies.

I always get surprised as hell whenever someone replies "meh" or "they're alright" to Strapping young Lad. I mean, Devin Fvcking Townshend, and Gene goddamned Hoglan, both in one band. I suggest you go back and start listening to more SYL, trust me, you're overlooking a gem sir.

I would say the most br00tal country in terms of music has got to be britain. At least imo. Napalm Death, ted Maul, Extreme Noise Terror, Leng Tche, you get the idea. not to mention Iron Maiden. Go read some Iron Maiden lyrics and tell me that they arent br00tal as fvck. Go ahead, try lol

I don't think 'Deathcore' is the proper term for BTBAM. Don't get me wrong, they certainly have qualities that may be called deathcore, but progressive is all I've ever felt fit them as far labels go. Their prevailing sound I would say is more metalcore than deathcore. But I still really wish to refrain from labeling them because of their progressive side. You start pinning these bands into a corner if you begin labeling them (progressive bands that is). Like Gojira, however, I'd prefer to see BTBAM headline. Their material is so vast and yes, long, that I think it inappropriate to judge their live show based on an opening slot.

I forgot to add that BTBAM do need to take a giant step forward because with their last releases Gojira and Mastodon are going to lap BTBAM if not already.

I don't think BTBAM really fits into any subgenre comfortably. I see the 'core' elements, but they're far to unique and progressive to fall into metalcore or deathcore. Is progcore a genre? Maybe their pioneering a new subgenre...
