    I just saw this on Eluveitie's Facebook page.


    This is a tour-de-force for folk/melodic metal fans. Eluveitie have announced they will be teaming with Wintersun*for a *Winter US tour, and they're taking Varg*with them. I repeat, Wintersun*is going to be touring the US. I know one person who is already at the front of the line waiting for tickets.

    Wow, I haven't been this excited for a tour in a very long time. I finally get to see Wintersun and I never thought I'd get to see Varg in the states. Damn I really can't wait for this show.

    I would check this out if the nearest date of the tour wasn't 1100 miles away!

    Actual text from a friend this morning:

    "Dude, they're actually gonna let Varg Vikernes enter the US to tour with Wintersun!?!?!?" :lol:

    Hahaha, what makes it even funnier is the fact that Varg is vehemently anti-nazi/fascist band. It's one of the reasons I like them so much.

    Ditto. Still pissed I missed Eluveitie and 3 Inches of Blood last time due to the god forsaken traffic that night in Atlanta.

    The routing of this tour sucks.

    Might go to the Pittsburgh date with a few friends but not sure yet.

    So they start out in the extreme west coast - go north and go across the northern part of the country in the winter? Makes sense considering the bands of the tour but dammit we have winter here in Colorado too ya know. Boo, Boo I say.

    Cleveland, Millvale and Chicago are all closer than NY to Atlanta.

    It is but I honestly could have waited another year for them to just combine the two releases. Feels like Time I is just an EP. The material that's on there is phenomenal though,

    Thank you Detroit for being a suckass metal venue black hole with your shitty little Blondies, pathetic tiny stage I-Rock and nasty gutted out old theater Harpos, not to mention tiny little metal crowds. Just love driving two hours to Cleveland on a Wednesday night! <rant off>
