Chris Barnes has called out CANNIBAL CORPSE for allegedly being involved in “price gouging” after a fan complained about the cost of tickets to the band’s upcoming tour.

Yesterday, a fan tweeted that Live Nation is apparently selling tickets to CANNIBAL CORPSE‘s March 10 show at Ace Of Spades in Sacramento, California with WHITECHAPELREVOCATION and SHADOW OF INTENT for more than a hundred dollars apiece.

“Damn didn’t know METALLICA was playing”, the fan wrote. “How the f*ck is it $105 per ticket for CANNIBAL CORPSEWHITECHAPELREVOCATION and SHADOW OF INTENT at Ace Of Spades in Sacramento Mar 10th? Where do you get reasonable tickets?”

A short time later, former CANNIBAL CORPSE frontman, Barnes, took to his Twitter to weigh in, writing: “Yikes! Price gouge much lol”. He also included a couple of crying laughing emojis.

Dates and tickets for CANNIBAL CORPSE‘s upcoming tour are available here.

Barnes recently received media attention after saying that death metal bands nowadays made him “physically ill.”

On January 19, Knotfest livestreamed “A Death Metal Round Table” hosted by Staypuft Mallow and featuring appearances by FisherTrevor Strnad from THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDERChase Mason from GATECREEPER and Alex Jones from UNDEATH.

In the video, the singers discussed “their early influences, the accessibility of the genre, inspiration from the weirdest places, live show between-song patter, their upcoming releases and tours and much, much more.”

Barnes wrote on Twitter regarding the video: “I just watched a ‘death metal’ podcast on YouTube that was done about a week ago with the ‘top’ death metal vocalists .. it made me physically ill. I despise what this genre has become.”

Later on, HATEBREED frontman Jamey Jasta, who co-produced Fisher‘s upcoming debut solo album, responded to Barnes: “come on the podcast & discuss.” 

Chris responded: “No thanks brother. I have no need to jump on that bandwagon you guys got that”. 

Jasta fired back with “Weak,” to which Barnes said: “Ain’t here to play that game. You have fun tho bro.” 

Jasta then wrote: “you’re the one playing games, you ‘hate what the genre has become’ but do you ever promote or discuss new bands or try & help build anything in the genre?” This prompted Chris to respond: “Lol promote lol hahahahaha”. Jasta then countered: “Oh right that’s beneath you lol”, to which Barnes said: “Nah I’m just not a shill…”
