PiercingMetal Thoughts: While I have a number of friends in the Metal scene that love this band, they were never really an act that I followed. I caught them a couple of times over the years and while I enjoyed myself, I didn’t stick to it. That’s bound to happen out there with so many bands to support. With that being said I will for sure try to hit the show in my region provided that I have recovered enough from the New York Comic Con which will have just completed at that time. Trust me, that event knocks me out for days after its over. Wrapping this up I wonder what you readers think about the tour and will you be in attendance. Chime in down below in the comments section as its always great to hear from you. Until next time.
