I've been finding it more and more difficult lately not to choose the latter. I guess now that I live in Oakville, I'm not exposed to these faggots anymore anyway. Will only come downtown if there is actually a show worth attending, and we all know how often that happens Rolling Eyes

It HAS been a slow year, unfortunately. Even more unfortunate is that Inertia is the one putting on some interesting shit in October. Like Hawkwind. Usually the response to that is to go to Montreal or London and bypass that faggot entirely but Im going to the Goatpenis show next month and will not be able to justify another out of town trip so soon.

There has been some very vague and minor discussion about a possible show before the end of the year with the only active NS band I can think of from the area. Nothing to get wood over just yet, though.. Would probably have to be an invite-only deal like when GBK was in town

I also boycott Inertia shows, and hope sooner than later, many more will too. Probably the "thrill" of attending a live event is overpowering for many, at least for a few years.
There are always good gigs in the Toronto area that are not promoted by him.

The most annoying thing about Inertia (besides his ridiculous policies, and his past of trying to poach shows from the other promoters in town) are all the idiots thanking him for doing such a good job all the time. Every show, it's, "Thank you for bringing *insert international band here* to town, biggest promoter in Toronto!". Like they really had much of a fucking choice. He walks away with all the power, all the money, and none of the ethics and gets his cock sucked by all the suburbanites who drove to Toronto to watch Finntroll, probably because they weren't allowed to play within 100km of the city.

the midsouth has a weird umbilical connection to the hipster metal scene Portland OR so all the hipster sludge, frilly album cover design bands are big around here and surrounding cities, then shitty ass local redneck bands trying to emulate that but are just a few braincells short of being able to pull it off, then there are a few tech death/whatever bands that pop up for a minute then disappear, always competent musicians but just empty emulation,

however that is nothing compared to shit like this:

or this

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2FQciutxUU

these two types of redneck ass bands are in every single fucking small town in the entire south, their fat ass girlfriends come out and watch them and their uncles sit in the back of the bar shaking their heads for playing that "devil worshippin music"

honestly living in the south is fucking horrible and I can't wait to move, there are 4 good bands in Memphis possibly and I feel for anyone trying to tough it out here and get out of town

Where I live (In Orlando, Floriduh) 90's Nu Metal is still insanely popular here. I know someone who plays in a Nu metal cover band and they fucking sell out the house of blues! When they play in small clubs theres a line around the fucking block! Its still everywhere here! Feels like your stuck in the years 97-99. Those 3rd rate Nu metal bands that were on ozzfest back in the day pack every club to the max when they play.
There's still a ton of your pantera/Lamb of god/ Juggalo bands here to.

I wish I could answer that. Funny that you mentioned Woods of Ypres earlier, they actually played in my area when I was 17 or so. They played to a crowd of about ten people, and two drunk girls who were yelling nonsense at them for being Canadian. It was pretty sad, but not surprising at all.

Another Oakvillian eh.. Thanks for the list, I've only listened to Adversarial and Into Oblivion I'll get around to checking the rest out soon. Ever listened to Etheric Void or Breath of Chaos?

Can anyone fill me in on what the deal is with Inertia?

In Flames
Dark Tranqullity
Helvetets Port
Lost Horizon
Kill
Mustasch
At The Gates (sorry but i have never liked them)
RAM
Hammerfall
The Haunted
Hardcore Superstar

Only good bands from Gothenburg ever is Grotesque and Deathwitch.
Irkallian Oracle is of course one of the few good new bands.

At The Gates are really good. With I kiss the burning darkness is a classic. I like the other albums as well.
And RAM is solid heavy metal.
And Kill, come on. Kill is certainly not a shitty band.
Hardcore Superstar is a pretty entertaining hair metal live act.
