COF sucks, why are so many good bands playing with those fa**ots.

Guess what, CoF is WANABE BLACK METAL, its not even cool.

i have respect for dimmu borgir and sh** like that, because they are talented, CoF just sucks nuts.

That and the fact anyone who owns of their cd's probably doesnt know sh** about music.

for starters Cradle of Filth are f***ing awesome, anyone who says i dont know music can eat my sh**. 2nd of all, your all a bunch of nerds who play D n' D in Grammas basement while she makes you brownies. and what is funny is that you all say Cradle sucks, but yet they fill up anywhere they go. And yes they are extreme, i have seen many bands, Pantera, Hatebreed, Slayer, Meshugga, SLipknot, Machine Head and when i saw Cradle last fall, they had some of the most frightening pits i have seen and judging by the list shown, that says a lot. So, anyway, your all full of sh**.

i saw cradle on their Midian tour and they kicked a$$ - a two hour professional, solid show and definitely got my money's worth. In contrast, I also saw pantera not long before and even though I love their music, their gig sucked. They only played for a little over an hour and Phil sang the last two songs laying on the ground and no one could see him and also kept blubbering incomprehensible stuff between songs - that wasn't very entertaining considering we pay to see a quality show.
So to those that only go by what's "cool" and what's not and who "sold out" or whatever, get your a$$ to cradle's show, support metal and for f**k's sake stop being immature little wankers.

Satyricon are off the tour because of the continued problems with working visas (Frost's criminal record) and instability in the band. Rumour has it that Frost is leaving the band to make 1349 his full-time gig. That would suck, because he's a f***ing awesome drummer. Volcano wasn't their best, but it's better than 90% of the bullsh** out there.

Arch Enemy are easily the best band on this bill, even though their last album was pretty dull. Anyone interested in good guitar-playing should go just to watch the Amott brothers bust out. And Angela provides good eye-candy!

Mispelling Ihsahn's name should be punishable by death. If azgaroth thinks COF's pit is brutal, he needs to get his a$$ to a Mayhem concert!

Burzum is mayhem - but it still has that sense of darkness ( or burzum or dunkelheit if you'd prefer...) that Mayhem could never get close to. It's a tragedy that the man will probably never make music again.

Dead f***ing right! Hlidskjalf has this special air about it. Remarkable stuff.

He wrote the material for Burzum, Det Som Engang Var, Hvis Lyset Tar Oss and Filosofem in something like two years. And that doesn't include a few excellent tracks that are floating around on bootlegs like 'Et Hvitt Lys Over Skogen', written in the same period.

The reason that he probably won't make music again is because he's said as much in interviews.

He's never actually heard the final mix for Filosofem, that was done externally.

Yes, Burzum were one of those bands who never stepped wrong. Genius. Now we're left with a whole lot of posers in the metal underground who want to be just like him, forgetting that originality was a key element of his art.

why do you even take Burzum's music seriously? It's a god damn joke - lame attempt at atmospherics. It's all image and keen to be different attitude wit u dudes.
Take any amateur pianist at college level and give him a synth and there you go - burzum in a nutshell! I don't know what you listen to Christ, but to say his music is original is pretty funny s**t. He's also a typical Norwegian immature trendy d***head who killed Euronemous outta pure jealousy and now he's been glorified by outdated (or wannabe) lame c**ts who still think there's an underground scene. Anyway, f**k that Burzum dips**t and bring on the Cradle!
