Seems true of a lot of black metal bands really. I'd love them back myself.

To be fair, if I stopped listening to bands because I thought one or more of their members were knobheads I'd probably have about 3 bands left to listen to, if that.
Wouldn't mind seeing them headlining the Sophie tbh, though how the amount of fire and pyro they use would go over in a large tent I don't know.

On the 3 occasions I've sen Watain do headline shows, the closest they have had to pyro was a couple of candles on Erik's little altar. I know their production at some shows has been pretty large scale, we're not talking Rammstein levels yet so a tent slot is more than feasible. I still think they are too big for such though.
All hail the brave sailor men of the mighty Jorvik Turbojugend!!!

And I've got to agree with the sentiment behind that, really, because I'm a Megadeth fan. I just don't agree enough to want to see Watain again. I see why others do, but I really don't.

Lol, there is no way they would accept a slot on the Sophie Stage. They couldn't even hack playing below Dio Disciples.
