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.

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.
