    I was even more upset when they played CAFO :lol: I like at lot of the self-titled, but not CAFO. I will say that Physical Education was fun live. Also I forgot to mention that they did something special during Ants of the Sky

    This. I'll never be able to understand why CAFO is their #1 hit single summer jam. On Impulse is at least 4.37x better.

    Bummed I missed this tour. I was honeymooning with my wife in Ireland when the show happened in Nashville though, so I definitely can't complain. :) Trying to decide if it's worth it to go to Knoxville for this next tour. I just may, mostly because I'm jonesin' for some new Intronaut. One of the best live bands I've seen. Speaking of which, for vividox, check out their set on EMGtv.

    Awesome, not a single Canadian date.

    No, Toronto and Ottawa don't count.

    Which sucks, I'd love to catch Enslaved, especially with BTBAM.

    So, maybe this doesn't come as a surprise to anyone, but they're apparently doing a full Coma Ecliptic playthrough tour next year:

    Somehow coma ecliptic has allowed me to "get" them better. It's kind of been a backward gateway, and I'm working through the rest of their work now more than I ever have.

    I've been aware of these guys since Alaska, and seen them live 3-4 times. They always impressed, but they never clicked with me. The past tour with AAL and Contortionist really inspired me, all around.

    Now I've been on a btbam kick for a few weeks, and the more things sink in, the more rewarding it is.

    bumping this up because I just read through Heavy Blog's complete Parallax analysis, and have been on an absolute btbam bender this week.

    as incredible as the new album is, I feel like catching up on all the inter-related songs on parallax, TGM, and Colors has been taking over my free time. So many "wow" moments.

    Man, I love Coma and Paralax II. The older stuff is just too... something for me. To me, they finally perfected their craft with those two releases.

    Seeing these guys in a month for the first time. I'm preparing myself to be blown the hell away.

    They are epic live, tightest band you will ever see, my band had the pleasure of opening for them when they played here in NZ recently, such a friendly bunch of genuine nice guys :)
