    Member of the biggest band? We opened for Bruce Dickinson on one of his solo tours.

    Otherwise, I'm not sure. Testament? Great White? Warrant? (Yes, Division's opened for both of them. Cash is cash. :lol:)

    The band that was biggest in terms of current CD sales at the time we opened for them was probably either Iced Earth or Kamelot.

    My old band played with Static-X and Devine Heresy a few years back. Wayne Static was as nice as they come, but Dino was a real asshole. And since I'm from Rockford we opened for Dope about a bajillion times. We even out sold them on merch once. :lol:

    We played the smallest stage at the Sounds of the Underground in 07 I think? The tour that had As I Lay Dying, Machine Head, In Flames, GWAR, etc. It was just the one stop at the Rave in Milwaukee.

    hahah too many to count

    Hatebreed 4 times, Parkway drive (2 nz tours, 1 aus tour) Unearth (3 or 4 times now) Madball (3 times) Terror (3 times) Have Heart, Blacklisted, Agonistic Front, Ringworm, Bleeding Through (twice) Darkest Hour (twice) Comeback kid (twice) Throwdown (twice) Black Dahlia Murder (soon to be twice) Most Precious Blood (3 times I think) Cephalic Carnage, God Forbid, Shai Hulud, Blacklisted, , Job For a Cowboy, Death By Stereo, Behemoth, Goatwhore, Rage Against The Machine (opened main stage of big day out so whover played BDO 2008 haha) was also main support for Taste of Chaos NZ so Rise Against, Gallows, whoever was playing that year etc. Was meant to be doing WhiteChapel this month but the NZ shows were cancelled.

    Beauty of being in relatively well known hardcore/metalcore/metal bands in NZ. Such a small scene so there's plenty of support slot opportunities.

    My band in California opened for Great White, haha.

    As far as modern bands though, biggest would probably be As Blood Runs Black, but at that same show, (and were way more fun and awesome,) was The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza.

    We did 3 different tours with Finger Eleven, 3 Days Grace, and Default, respectively. We also did random one off shows with Alter Bridge and Breaking Benjamin...there were a bunch of smaller bands we played with but I just listed the "big names."

    Biggest one we've played so far was with Anvil. We're trying to build more of a presense in Toronto to hopefully score a slot on some of the bigger melodic metal bands.

    The biggest bands I've played with are the ones I try to play along to during forever alone time in my room. :(
