    There are definitely some sweet bands on this bill. Cattle Decapitation, Misery Index, Revocation, Havok and Last Chance to Reason are all great bands, and would make up a really cool tour even on their own. Axl and I have always been “meh” on Fear Factory, but as long as their presence as headliners of this tour doesn’t jack the ticket price up too high I’d definitely pay to see the aforementioned bands and, since I’d already be there, I’d be willing to give Fear Factory a shot at wowing me live. Voivod are a really interesting choice; I wonder whether any of the folks who attend this show for the younger bands (and most bands on the bill are very young) will have any concept of Voivod’s legacy or even know any of their songs? I like it, though. I’m not neither here nor there on Vildhjarta or Forged in Flame, though I’d be willing to give them both a shot based on association with the other cool bands, and as for the Dirge Within and The Browning… well… ya know.
