    Nowhere close to that I'd say. What's the max for the venue? It was full but definately not packed

    The crowd was about 800. And even though it was better than when I went to see Mastodon there, I'm still not a fan of the place.

    The max is about 1300 if you open it all up, but it was over 800 on the floor section I'm told.

    I was busy this week and money is very dry, so I missed out on the Melb show. Wish I had have gone. :cry:

    If they were playing Canberra I'd probably go but I'm not driving to Sydney for them.

    Home from Amon Amarth. Was a fucking massive gig. Good supports, and AA played for nearly 2 hours (on at about 10.15, finished around 5 past midnight with a two song encore).

    HUGE crowd - Hifi was PACKED (See what happens when you bring GOOD metal bands to Brisbane? *glares at a certain promoter who didn't bring a certain un-named band whose name rhymes with miced mirth to Brisbane partly due to Children of Bottom getting a shit turnout in Brisbane last time*) Yeah I'm not bitter :p

    Anyway it was a fantastic gig (apart from when the lead singer had to go off stage to throw up..."airline food" LOL!)

    Got War of the Gods and The Hero on video which I'll upload to youtube in the morning.

    I dont really understand how AA are bigger than Ensiferum....so my whinge is that Ensiferum have only been here for a short Screamfest set vs AA that have been here 2(?) times now as headliners....

    Not sure about HOW, but there is no doubt AA *are* bigger. Surtur Rising sold about 15,000 copies in its first week in the US charts. Ensiferum's last album sold 900.

    AA just seem to have a much broader appeal than Ensiferum.

    And me! Every time I've seen Ensiferum live its been an experience I never wanted to end.

    AA, while amazing, kinda becomes a bit of a chore live after a while as I find their music a bit too one-dimensional.

    Would love to see Ensiferum come back to Oz for a headline tour. If Turisas can do it, and FINNTROLL can do it, surely there is enough demand for Ensiferum to do it!

    In light of there being bugger all happening on the internationals front at the moment - BARGE TO HELL. Just wondering if any of you guys are considering going?

    www.bargetohell.com

    Half the lineup announced thusfar - Sepultura, Enslaved, Morgoth, Sacred Reich, Possessed, Six Feet Under, Moonspell, Artillery, Paradise Lost, Loudblast, Rotting Christ, Sodom, Krisiun, Hackneyed, Sanctuary, Hypocrisy, Soilwork, Kampfar, Solstafir, Belphegor.

    Zero interest to me - but as someone who has gone on the first two 70,000 Tons of Metal cruises I hope its a big success.

    I also hope one day for a 70,000 Tons of Metal-like cruise out of Australia :p Not gonna happen, but a man can dreeeeam.

    :cry: All i have is youtube....Had to miss screamfest because it was my son's first new years. And nothing close has come back since...no Ensiferum, no Sonata Arctica :( Hopefully either of their new albums makes it big here but i wont hold my breath.

    I was lucky enough to see the Ensiferum/Sonata/VP screamfest sideshow up here in Brisbane, then see them both play twice on 70000 Tons of Metal 2011 :D

    Could see Sonata live every week I reckon and not be bored. Would love them to come here again.

    Cannibal Corpse Aus tour

    Oct 4th Adelaide – Fowler’s Live
    Oct 5th Melbourne – Billboard The Venue
    Oct 6th Sydney – The Metro Theatre
    Oct 8th Brisbane – The Hifi
    Oct 9th Perth - Capitol

    After three long torturous years, death metals titanic kings, CANNIBAL CORPSE, return to Australia for a
    sarcophagic frenzy of sordid and demented proportions!
    Their new ceaselessly hostile album release, TORTURE, proves that when it comes to combining unrestrained maliciousness, involved song writing and technical precision they still have no equal. The twelfth full-length of their inspiring twenty-four year career, the Floridian quintet have never sounded so vital, the album building upon the wealth of powerful, dark, and memorable songs comprising 2006's Kill and 2009's Evisceration Plague and pointedly upping the ante at every turn.
    With blistering riffs, turbulent drums, ruthless and razored vocals, CANNIBAL CORPSE are THE pinnacle of death metal. Make no mistake. The sledgehammer force of the forthcoming live cannibalism will yet again prove this beyond any doubt.
