Ah hell man, I love Iced Earth. I know some people have a built-in reluctance to like anything along the lines of Power Metal, but jesus christ, these guys rock hard. I do have to admit though, their last few albums haven't been nearly up to par with their older stuff... I fucking love the Gettysberg trilogy at the end of "The Glorious Burden" though. I present to you the following evidence of their heavy metal asskickery:







Fuck, these guys are awesome. I just wish Jon Schaffer could remember how to write a fucking decent song these days...

I don't know man, I could never get much into Iced Earth, and it's not a power metal thing; the riffs just sound generic. I think what I enjoyed most about the band was Barlow.

I liked Horror Show, but then I picked up The Glorious Burden and Night of the Stormrider, and both of those albums are pretty shit. I will agree, though, that the Gettysburg trilogy was pretty sweet.

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

Sad thing is, if this were about 8 years ago, I'd totally be into seeing Soil. I can't even come close to standing them now... so, so boring.

I think part of Tyr's problem was Eric the Red was their breakout album, and they didn't really play anything off of it, at least not at my venue. They played like 3 songs from the new album and left. It was like they knew they had no shot.

I don't believe Moonsorrow ever actually toured the US; I know they've played a fest or two, but I don't think they've actually toured. Korpiklaani might be in the same boat, too. All I know is I fucking Moonsorrow, and I just about wet my pants when I found out they were joining Paganfest.

I have to say, if Korpiklaani manages to have the same live presence Eluveitie does (which I think there is a high probability for it, given their sort of music), both of those bands playing back to back will be mind-blowing.

The new Lamb Of God Album sounds like they got a list of what I like about them and put it into an album.

10 yrs ago I could not hide from soil if I tried.

They literally opened for almost every band that played in Chicago.

Im not a fan.

CARCASS!

I'm thinking about hitting up the Exhumed to Consume II show on the 16th at The Majestic in Detroit. Looks like it'd be a pretty damn good bill: Carcass (!!!!), Black Dahlia Murder, Suicide Silence, Samael, Arsis (!!!), and Psycroptic.

Holy hell, that's an assload of metal!

I seriously considered giving this video it's own thread but it really belongs here. This is too fucking funny!
