Sounds like a great tour, but I can't afford a trip to Chicago or St. Paul. Bummer.

FAN should be excited, though, Behemoth is playing in Tampa, lol.

I don't see how Nick from Shining will ever get past the passport/visa issues.

NICE! Kicking in off at the TLA! Next years concerts are starting to look pretty sexy. Behemoth is amazing, Shining is known for its violent, controversial stage show, and Septic Flesh has been at it for 19 years (minus a 4 year hiatus) and should hold they're own. All in all, should be a pretty kick a$$ tour.

I'm telling you, it will take an act of God to get Nick stateside. Don't count on Shining being here.

Damn f***in straight I'm f***in excited Hammer lol.

Unfortunately I have no idea who the other bands are. Looks like I'm off to youtube to find two bands I've never heard before...

Tampa is just close enough that it's plausible to go there, but just far enough that if I dont have a car at my disposal, I might as well go f*** myself. :P

wow, he made DB say a bad wrd lol. well, metalbro4life, i am an avid advocate against the dog poo that is black metal, and yet, i rlly like behemoth. at first, it scared me but then i loved the music, kuz it was pretty epic and kinda thrash/death metal and plus their musicianship is awesome. took me awhile to get passed the vox tho =\ any who, y did u cmt on an article about a band that u clearly don't like?? 0.o whatever, typical MU member i guess lol. i, for one, don't do that AT ALL. not enough time in the day for me. as for this tour, nvr heard of the other 2 and don't rlly catch me attention. i would love to see behemoth live again tho. saw them this yr at mayhem fest and they f***in' destroyed west palm beach, fl. man. i'm in miami (i know >.>) soo i won't b making the drive to tampa, but whatever i've got plenty of other shows. (ex. august burns red next tue.) wooo!!!

np : dream theater - "wither" (MU's article opened in another tab soo that i could hear the song, btw great song)

^nothinghead, I was at the same show..did you see the guy who picked up and threw the giant trash can during the Cannibal Corpse pit? lmao at that one.

And besides, (@metalbro) Behemoth is so blatantly death metal these days the only thing that gives away their black metal roots(besides the rediculous facepaint) is their use of trumpets and epic intros to every other song.

New album rocks pornstar tits.

I could understand the confusion with BH on the whole death/black labeling, they kinda sound deathy but have the BM look......theyre pretty good live but the tour lineup again is weak. DDriver show with suffocation and goatwhore is alot more enticing....

well do you like thrash or death more? personally that's a no brainer. I've seen all of those bands except Megagay and imo Behemoth and Septic Flesh are far superior. Slayer puts on a good show though.

Man do yourself a favor and see Septic Flesh live they played here in indy last jan. Think a way heavier and better version of Rotting Christ these guys own! Man i might try to make that chicago show. The 2 times i have seen behemoth here in naptown have totaled an hour (30 min sets both shows) Evangelion and The Apostasy are solid dm cds.
