HYPOCRISY
http://www.metalupdate.com/interviewhypocrisy2.html

Hypocrisy frontman Peter Tägtgren should be a familiar name to many a
metal household. From fronting Hypocrisy to producing many great metal
albums via his own Abyss Studios, there's no doubt that his metal
achievements are at levels that most of us can only dream of. Instead of
dissecting the music itself, Metal Update had an in depth discussion about
the mindset behind the lyrics, the controversial CD burning epidemic and
the love of good ol' country music.

Yeah dude, that tour lineup is so great, it's too bad the Worcester stop is the metalfest (on the day I won't be attending of course).
