I hate to even waste bandwidth on Arcturus, but...

    I'm so pissed right now that the promoter hat is coming off.

    Arcturus is promoting their appearance at the Inferno Festival in April, 2012.


    I have never dealt with a such a group of unprofessional assholes in my career. I bent over backwards to accomodate them like I have no other band and in return, they spit in the face of both me & all of the fans that had made plans to see them here.

    Their lame-ass excuse should be even more apparent now.

    Give it another 6 months for another cryptic hibernation-related press release...

    Wow, that is beyond messed up!! I'm happy to say that I was never a fan of theirs! Maybe they needed more tome to practice? :err:

    Seems to me that they chose to "awake" at Inferno rather than ProgPower... what a bunch of douchebags...

    I'd been meaning to pick up one of their discs to check 'em out prior to the festival. Now I'm glad I hadn't -- and WON'T -- wasted any money on them.

    From what I'm hearing, though, Ihsahn is an upgrade, anyway!!

    It really looks like they just decided to turn up their nose at ProgPower. Like it just wasn't good enough for them.

    Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. I wouldn't be surprised they bail out of that one too, especially how far in advance that one is. Still, a bunch of douchebags.

    Your loss then. The albums are brilliant.

    Our gain, surely.

    Quite honestly, Arcturus (IMO) is one of the most overrated bands of all-time, so I could care less if they continue to screw themselves with bad business decisions that isolate promoters and fans.

    Ihsahn >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Arcturus

    Lazy fuckers. I wouldn't be surprised if they cancel their appearance in April of next year.

    I still love ARCTURUS but they seem to be idiots, which happens to often in this industry nowadays. Ihsahn is going to crush all! i do hope the dudes in Leprous are still his backing band.

    as I mentioned on Jen's FB post, is anybody taking any bets on whether or not their newly announced show will even happen?


    Sit & spin, 2 at a time! ---> :fu:

    Honestly, I think they will do that one.

    And, even though it may mean nothing, I kind of hope the promoter of that festival has heard about what happened here.

    I think they are playing Inferno because Borknagar also is headlining that festival. They probably cornered ICS and asked him if both bands could play there. That said, my money is on a cancellation.
