Seen them 3, or 4 times. I really much prefer them inside though, for some reason I feel something gets lost when they play an outside festival. Still, always going to be a great announcement!

I have to agree with that. They are a great band, but they are much better on an indoor smaller stage. Still good music though.

One of my all-time favourite bands, cannot WAIT to see them again :D I'm so stoked. I completely forgot they were playing, then looked on the line-up, and got all exicted all over again :lol:

"If I see you videotaping this movie,
Satan will rain down your throat with hot acid
and dissolve your testicles
and turn your guts into snakes."

any band which says that in a song is amazing, imo. ;)

Aye I saw it earlier, it's a great cover. Brent's vocals are really good.

Just finally downloaded the Live At The Aragon cd, listened to it all through on youtube earlier. How I wish I could've been there, it was an incredible show. Can't wait to see them again at Soni.

The setlist for rock am ring was ridiculus

I won't post any spoilers but it had three songs off of remission back to back

I hope we get something similar

Really exited to see them again

Sooooo.....March Of The Fire Ants, Mother Puncher and Where Strides the Behemoth? I'd be ecstatic to see all of those, and normally that means we'd get Iron Tusk before Fire Ants aswell :mrgreen:

I'd be chuffed with that too. Seen the Crack The Skye setlist twice now, and as awesome as it was I'd like to see some of the earlier stuff getting a look in.
