Indeed. He's a lazy troll.

Post 2/3 even admits to liking King Diamond who surely wouldn't exist if they weren't making a profit... And I'll go out on a limb and say that King Diamond are at least 25% more accessible than LOG. I'd go to this show but Fozzy will be there.

If I go, I'll have an early night on saturday.

I actually think LoG are more accessible than King Diamond though, at least in the UK and the US. King's vocals are a bit much for alot of people, whereas I know loads of people that like Lamb of God.
