And, to be honest, I'm kind of glad Tyr is off the list. I love those guys, but holy shit, coming on after Eluveitie destroyed them.
I completely agree. I was blown away that Eluveitie was able to reproduce their songs so well live. I thought for sure it would sound like a muddled mess, but it sounded fucking great. Plus seeing a shirtless, heavily tattooed, bearded dude running around on stage with fucking whistles, flutes and bagpipes was a trip. From what I hear they'll be releasing a new album here in a month or two, which is supposed to be completely acoustic, so we may hear some of those at the show in May. Hopefully we get a good dose of the heavy shit though.

But yeah, Eluveitie is a hard act to follow and I think Tyr's tunes just didn't cut it... I felt like all of the momentum of the show was lost when they started playing. Their not nearly as high energy as Eluveitie. I still dig their shit though.

"I give you the haaaammer of thoooor!"

Have you seen Korpiklaani and Moonsorrow live before? Not sure what to expect. Korpiklaani should provide some good tunes to get completely drunk too either way. haha

"I hate everyone equally..."

Holy shit, awesome:
Holy shit, I'm in a band:
Stupid, stupid shit I say:
