How sad is it that day 2 is better than day 1?

CoB + Kiss alone >>>>> In flames + Day 1

Billy Talent alone makes day 1 absolutely dreadful. Maybe if they were an opening act but I bet they're borderline headlining.



Any songs to recommend? Will possibly buy tickets just cause of CoB for day two and would like to check out some of their better stuff

Also As I Lay Dying, aren't they a screamo band?

As I lay is a good band to get some Hot Dog and go eating Haha

I've calmed myself and have come to the conclusion that the good bands on Day 2 in T.O. will in fact be added to day 1 in MTL. They said right from the get go that the entire point of adding Heavy TO was to give them another option for the bands to play, a one day stop over wasn't preferred.

You add Slayer and the other bands who played last year to the lineup and all of a sudden it's pretty solid again, even with Billy Talentless.

Saw them live a while back. One of the most boring performances I've ever seen


Lineup looks weak as ****. Had they put Bodom and In Flames on the same day I might have considered shelling out the cash. Wouldn't be surprised to see billy talent get booed off stage. Why don't they just get Nickelback next year?

So the Sword not great live eh? Too bad. Their last album really is leaps and bounds from their older stuff. A bit more polished but definitely a lot of direction and theme to the album as a whole.

Too bad Bison BC isn't there. Canadian band and you talk about live performance these guys are tops. Just brilliant live.

Someone mentioned Baroness yesterday. Guess they're not there either. Another band that would have been a great fit.

I'll check out their newest stuff. They were excruciating to stand through. Nobody was moving, nothing was happening.

I"m definitely in the camp that is pretty jacked to see the Sword regardless of their stage presence. They are very tight and the new album is epic.

Indeed. Hard to describe how good they are live. They will floor you. It's like Mastodon meets High on Fire.

Videos never do it justice but this is a decent one.

Also a HUGE Bison fan, saw them again recently (a few months back) in a tiny club and it was the best show I've been to in years. Nothing but Beards and Riffs!

Still holding out hope that the bands "tba" will include Baroness and Goatwhore.

The older I get, the smaller the venue is, the better.

That's not necessarily a bad thing.

In Flames haven't put out a good album since Clayman (although Reroute to Remain isn't too shabby).

Although I did see them live a couple of years ago and they put on a good show.

COB on day 2...alright I guess. I'm a fan, but I've seen them so often now that it doesn't mean much anymore.

Would have preferred it if Machine Head and In Flames were on day 2 as well, but I honestly only want to go to see Opeth if given the choice between either day. Missed them back in '09 and have regretted it ever since.

Their new stuff isn't bad IMO, it's just not melo death anymore, which is a shame. Come clarity was a terrible album though. Can't really put a label on what 'sense of purpose' was but the writing was solid both ways. I can see how some people can be disappointed, though. My two favorite bands are bodom and in flames (for their past albums, obv.) In flames has changed whereas bodom has just degenerated. Both make me a bit sad.

Which is somehow worse than "A bunch of garbage + Billy Talent" because....?

Just cause it's in Toronto doesn't make it a worse show man, hate to break it to you but their line up kills ours currently and it's not even close.

Okay I have to say, huge bodom fan here. I could probably name you 10 bodom songs that I find to be just down right groundbreakingly awesome metal music. But yeah, their last few "efforts" (for lack of a better word) have been just damn pathetic.

I really didn't like the new All That Remains CD either, after "The Fall of Ideals" it must have been tough to follow up but come on.... and they aren't at Heavy MTL this year

If Megadeth/Slayer would come though I'd probably go. Especially if it were on the Bodom day.
