Yeha os I just wanted a clever title

anyway,

I was psyched to hear that Dragonforce's new album is coming out soon! (August 15!!!)

And I was terribly excited when I realized that they're touring America!

but then I came down when I saw that Slipknot is headlining the tour

There's no way I'd be caught dead listening to them

But all I want to see is DragonForce

It's ridiculous that two totally different bands could tour together (even if they're on the same label)

So what,
should I just get super expensive tickets and just leave when Slipknot comes on?
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside
that shotgun barrel that's about to make me bleed

Like an ulcer in the stomach of the beast

How bout go embrace the feeling of a Slipknot concert and see if it changes your mind. Remember be open minded.

I'm going to be the first to say that although both not great bands at all - Slipknot are better than Dragonforce.

They're both terrible live.

Herman Li and company can't play their own solos for crap.

And Cory can't keep his breath at all.

why do you hate slipknot? i dont care for them but if your disdain for them is so great you wouldnt go see a band you really like you must have a good reason...
#8
Do you genuinely not like slipknot or are you saying that to fit in? Cause honestly, I don't mind their music. And if I really loved a band I'd at least put up with Slipknot for what, an hour? To get to see them.

Normally I say that's your opinion,
but in this instance,
no
You're wrong

but meh
It's not so much standing through the band as it is dealing with the fans

it was like that for the black crusade, shadows fall, arch enemy, trivium, machine head

then dragonforce...

but theyre good live, not playing wise
#11
Or.. You could always pull off some elaborate scheme in which you arrange so that you can sell 'half' of your ticket to someone that only wants to see slipknot..
Then you're doing both of you a favor. Ha.

how about FUCK DRAGONFORCE AND SLIPKNOT.

on a more polite note, honestly. why would you want to see dragonforce or slipknot live? dragonforce can't play their studio songs live, and their studio songs sound like 80's video game music to begin with. as for slipknot, well...live, they look quite like a mentally deficient, sadistic circus.
#13
I don't know which one is worse...

Wannabe-metal or Cannot-be-metal?

edit:triple post LOL


I keed I keed.

I don't really enjoy both though

Is it because Dwagonforce can twiddle?

Slipknot > Dragonforce. Besides, they put on a better show if nothing else.

and Pasta of Muppets, all those other bands on the tour were perfectly good

Wow so much hating

Why can't people accept the awesomeness of Dragonforce?
I do agree that they can't reproduce their entire songs live (they should bring out at least another rythm guitarist so the solos don't sound so empty)

But It's not so much the music of Slipknot (I really don't listen to them, don't think they have any talent)
BUT IT'S THE FANS
Slipknot fans are the people I have chosen to distance myself from
self-loathing too-cool-to bo emo-but I still hate my life kids
can't stand it

This reminds me of last year with Marilyn Manson (I think?) toured with Slayer. Except in this case, both bands suck.

Mhm.

That's cause he knows how to actually sing.
Cause with Slipknot he pretty much just yells into the mic.

what's the point of being famous if everyone just knows you by your mask?
And why wear it if it just restricts your ability to perform?

All Dragonforce fans seem to use "z0mg! Sooo Fast" as the main argument for liking them. I could listen to them if they cut down their songs to about 4 minutes (One solo is enough for me) and stopped singing about Fire for once.

Edit: I have a feeling I know where this is going, so i'll just be leaving now. They both still suck ass.

Just sharing my opinion, as so many of you like to do regarding Dragonforce.

So they could use their 'notoriety' to get their way to the top, then take off their masks for side-projects to get well known. Any Slipknot fan knows what their faces look like (Except for Craig)

It's called a gimmick. Most bands have one.

I don't listen to them because they play S000 F42T LOLOLZZZMUDKIPZ

but because they brought melodies and complex riffs to metal
And because listening to the guitar alone is interesting enough

and yeah they do have lots of lyrics about fire

but the content of their lyrics makes them awesome too!
(although it's going to be different on their new album, based more on touring experiences)

haha what are you trying to say?

If they can play crazy fast, then good for them they should

but that's not it

they have pretty intense sweeps and taps

it's the way they fit everything together and make it sound so Fing amazing
