    They're going back because they get a good/better response from the European crowds. Nuff said.

    Not a UK and Ireland tour, it's a Great Britain and Ireland tour as there's no date in Northern Ireland. Get it right.

    Eight dates in England (UK), one in Scotland (UK) and one in Ireland. UK and Ireland tour!

    UK is short for the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northeren Ireland. It would need to have a date in Northern Ireland to distinguish it from a tour of Great Britain.

    Can't wait! The lighting/ stage setup on their recent tour was incredible!

    As someone from Northern Ireland, UG needs to work on their geography. Dublin's in the Republic. The biggest city up here is Belfast.

    machine head, the first nu-metal band that spawned decades of garbage metal. pantera influence/envy + wannabees = machine head.

    Have you listened to nothing from the last two (even three) albums? They haven't been nu-metal for over 8 years or so. And the Pantera comparison is just dumb. It's something people say when they can't accept that every band sounds similar to other bands. For example, Pantera is an Exhorder wannabe ripoff. See, it's easy.

    lol, doesn't take much to get a fanboy worked up on UG. but yeah, exhorder kicks ass too. lol. but stand by my opinion, machine head is as generic as 90s metal gets.
    eatfresh1736
    But that's what I'm saying. They haven't put out that 90's metal stuff in years. Yeah, their first couple of albums are kinda crappy (their 1st one is okay). I hereby challenge you to listen to Aesthetics Of Hate with an open and unbiased mind, and tell me what you think. (Btw, it's a tribute to Dimebag).
