Battlecross, Epica, Children of Bodom, Machine Head to Tour Beginning in October

EPICA at Hellfest 2007I'm a little bummed that they aren't coming any closer than Pennsylvania on this tour, but still... fucking Epica will be passing through the states along with the thrashers of Battlecross, the once-great (but now kinda meh) Children of Bodom (who will hopefully be playing mostly older songs), and Machine Head.

Battlecross will also be stopping in Mexico City with Black Label Society, and then to Brazil for three dates with Killswitch Engage and Memphis May Fire, according to Metal Blade.

A little confusing, but still fucking awesome considering Epica will be with them! Can you tell they are really the only band on this bill I'm really, really excited about?

Of course, there are many of you who dig Battlecross (including my husband) and Black Label Society is always awesome. Children of Bodom used to be really good, and I'm sure they will include some older songs in their set, but I don't know. I don't have a particular burning desire to see them, and I've heard conflicting reports about their live shows.

Here's all of the tour dates:

UPDATE! They actually will be stopping through here at The Fillmore Silver Spring on October 11th! Fuck yes!! I'm there. You'd better be, too!
