High On Fire was one of the worst live bands I've ever seen, just so you know.

anonymous

1/25/2012 8:36:12 AM
Don't belong. Don't exist. Don't give a shit. Don't ever judge me.

1/25/2012 8:36:50 AM

After a long day of lawn maintenance I will be there downing copious amounts of energy drinks, meth, Slim Jims, and looking to beat wimps like L. Christmas' ass. Since it's a fest I'll have to carry the Affliction shirt around showing off my work at the gym.

anonymous
1/25/2012 8:50:21 AM
Over/under 1,000 Affliction shirts.

The combined weight of The Devil Wears Prada is less than Kerry King's beard.

1/25/2012 9:11:12 AM
Hoping for a Slayer beatdown of AA. Will furiously search for video footage.

anonymous
1/25/2012 9:11:42 AM
Meatheads that only work out their biceps and abs are stoked.

anonymous
1/25/2012 9:13:06 AM

anonymous
1/25/2012 9:17:46 AM
The lawn maintenance crew at DTE Energy Music Theater is not stoked

So where are they?

anonymous

Stoked for Slipknot and Slayer on 7/3. Finally it's more of a METAL fest and not a ROCK fest like last year. Godsmack and Disturbed were main stage..Uhhhh

glad this shit fest never comes to Toronto, though Slayer is always good live.....

1/25/2012 11:06:59 AM

1/25/2012 11:24:47 AM
LOLing hard at the anonyms rage.

I'll take the OVER on the 1,000 affliction shirts.

Also here are the point spreads...
Slayer/Anthrax Thrash-off:
Slayer(-7.5) vs. Anthrax(+7.5)
As I Lay Dying/The Devil Wears Prada Christ-off:
AILD(+3) vs. TDWP(-3)
Asking Alexandria/Whitechapel Deathcore Wank-off:
AA(-13.5) vs. Whitechapel(+13.5)

btw i'd totally take AILD against the spread.

anonymous
1/25/2012 12:35:44 PM
Slipknot?!?! Didnt the bassist die, the dj turned gay and the singer sings in like 4 other bands? They still have time to play shows?

anonymous

anonymous
1/25/2012 5:06:16 PM
this is almost the perfect mix of douche bag trailer park metal and highschool musical-core. Tap out shirts are gay and so are people who wear them, refer to their arm as a "gun show", and their friends as "crews". Mr. Christmas +1000000000000000000

You guys do realize that Asking Alexandria has more fans than most of the headliners right?

1/25/2012 6:33:20 PM
Anthrax watches amputee midget porn before they play

anonymous
1/25/2012 9:13:21 PM
I finally know what energy drink to buy since I'm a metal head. Will be blasting my slipknot/magrudergrind mix in my Scion xB when I roll up

1/26/2012 2:07:09 AM
"1-800-Ask-Gary Amphitheatre"

NO one else noticed this?

Guess there is no reason to show up early...Anthrax, Slayer and Slipknot are decent. The rest fail beyond any other line up announced so far this year.

1/26/2012 6:59:11 AM
would only go to see the old guys go at it (slayer, anthrax). fck the rest.

1/26/2012 9:20:36 AM
When Slayer and Anthrax get labelled as "poser shit" by anon 10 year olds you know this world is going to shit.

1/26/2012 9:58:01 AM
I encourage all anonymous posters to come to Oklahoma City and fight me

How long do you think it'll be before Kerry King snaps and kicks the ass of one of the fruitcakes from Asking Alexandria?

So that makes them better? And since when were anonymous c*nts allowed to post on here without an account?

Satan's greatest trick was convincing man he didn't exist. Looks like Satan couldn't keep the joke going.

Finally, a mayhem fest Jesus can get behind. That one dude's youth group is stoked.

1/29/2012 3:18:50 PM
AA and TDWP needs to go. sucks theyre all about the money. btw, i signed the petetion

1/29/2012 3:19:30 PM
penTITion. fck.

anonymous
1/30/2012 4:59:39 AM
Slipknot is legit if they don't stick to their newer material, but they usually play alot of old, and can't deny they put 100% into their shows. Slayer, as much as I respect them..they blow monkey c*nts, take your old ass's back to the nursing home. High on Fire is hands down the worst band I've ever seen live. The rest of the bands can fck off. Add On Broken Wings, they'll make up for all of the other bands.

2/14/2012 6:59:56 PM
ya wow ive never seen such a shit-dog tour like this , and slayers a fcking joke too for playing all these gay tours for who knows how long

anonymous
