    It appears that the middle spot has been filled on the tour by none other than.....







    DevilDriver, a band made up of former Coal Chamber members.


    Don't believe me? Go to www.ticketmaster.com and type in Opeth where it asks you to search by artist, team, or venue.

    has anyone even heard the band.... don't just sit there and make assumptions simply because it contains members of a band you didn't like for whatever reason

    I've heard them and if my memory serves me right it's just more boring metal although less nu and boring than Coal Chamber (the KINGS of simple, boring songs).

    DevilDriver, to me, just sounds like a more... err... "hardcore" Coal Chamber. Badly done vocals and subpar metal. The drumming's okay, though! ;)

    Out of all the bands I hate their in the top 10 or so and I hate alot of bands so that's saying something. This is pitiful. . . Hopefully they drop out when they hear the bad response that their getting.

    The Opeth crowd is NOT going to react positively to them, mark my word.

    seems like a mismatch to me...there are worse bands than devildriver, but they're kinda boring and the vocals are, hm, unfortunate.

    bearing that in mind, I'll sit through whatever it takes if Opeth is coming on afterwards.

    This sucks...I'll definitely consider skipping the opening acts this time...damn, talk about going from the heights (Porcupine Tree) to the pits...

    Is it possible for an opener to be concluded prematurely based on the negative reaction of the audience? If so, I hope that happens.

    From Blabbermouth:

    KATAKLYSM: 'DEVILDRIVER Are Trying To Make Themselves Look Real By Getting On Metal Tours' - Dec. 19, 2003

    Maurizio Iacono, vocalist for the Canadian death metallers KATAKLYSM, has issued the following comment on the reports that they have lost one of the support slots on the upcoming OPETH tour to DEVILDRIVER, the new band fronted by ex-COAL CHAMBER singer Dez Fafara:

    "Hey everyone... First I'd like to thank all the people that emailed us rooting for KATAKLYSM to be on the OPETH tour. I'm overwhelmed!

    "But today is a sad day not only for KATAKLYSM, but for real metal in general... no disrespect intended towards DEVILDRIVER, 'coz I don't even know the guys personally except for the fact that there's an ex-COAL CHAMBER member... what I'm saying is shit happens, we lost the tour... so what, business is business... but to lose it to a band that comes from the Nu-metal era is what I don't get, that style is dead and now they are trying to make themselves look real by getting on real metal tours.

    "If OPETH, KATAKLYSM and MOONSPELL would be on a Nu-metal tour we would all get tomatoes thrown at us, but we as real metalheads have to sit back and accept shit like this happening to our scene... anyways politics right?

    "We will work something out for later next year and I hope to see all them REAL devil horns held high. Thanks to MOONSPELL for offering to share their bus with us and to the agency who booked this for fighting for us!!

    "It's been a long week... glad it's over! See ya soon, Maurizio."

    I've just gained additional respect for Kataklysm.

    Coming from a Nile fan saying the drumming is good, I'll hold my shit-talking tongue on this one.
