PiercingMetal Thoughts: Having only just seen the tour by BTBAM when they stomped through NYC with Enslaved in tow I have to say that this is going to be an exciting event for sure. BTBAM are artisans on their instruments and their sound is at times hypnotic. Now I don’t know a whole lot about August Burns Red since I’ve never caught them before if you can believe that. I enjoy the presentation of The Faceless but Good Tiger is another new name to my Mental Metal Lexicon so when they close up this tour at Webster Hall its going to be half educational for me. The band ends their new album adventures with the two festival appearances but you know they will very likely be back for a third go round. A band like this seems to keep going like the Energizer Bunny. What do you readers think of this tour? Let me know in the comments.
