What the usual metal crowd has yet to notice about hardcore/metalcore/deathcore, is that breakdowns have become a characteristic of that genre. It's part of the music, not a crutch. Most people don't really understand this album, or this type of music for that matter. Half the breakdowns in this albums get so heavy that they resemble drone metal. It's strange that so many people find it to be just rehashed ideas, because I actually found it to be a breath of fresh air.

See Emmure live. You'll understand. Even if you don't like breakdowns, which non of you seem to do, you can't deny the fact that they're amazing performers.

I like breakdowns when they're well placed, but not when they're the whole fucking song. I seriously doubt them even being interesting live, let alone amazing.

there are a couple songs that are good live plays, because the crowd gets really into certain parts. but in terms of the on-stage execution, the vocals are lacking and the guitars are pretty boring.

in conclusion, the only good thing about their live show is the crowd responding to their more standout songs such as "when keeping it real goes wrong", "10 signs you should leave" and off of this cd, "tales from the burg"

Any heavier and the world may actually shake.

I think you could just pick up acacia strain discs if you like this style. Its better music, and i think they started the super dissonant super low tuned guitar toned breakdowns that emmure, and others are ripping off pretty shamelessly

The acacia strain is a better band, I'm still an Emmure fan though. The new Acacia album has some sick polyrythmic stuff. If you haven't already picked it up, Check out the songs Seaward, Kraken and Balboa Towers.

this band is crap. Whoever wrote that thing about people not understanding music that is purely made up of breakdowns should end their life. Or listen to different music.

I can agree with the above statement that breakdowns have become a part of the music, as compared to a crutch. Sure it may not be what everyone is looking for, and yes breakdowns do get old. However, breakdowns do bring an element and energy to the music that nothing else really can. The most depressing thing about breakdowns is that they have become highly repetitive and unoriginal. Perhaps if they included a little more originality and included some of the talent that these musicians possess (or at least i hope they possess if they are in a metal band), then perhaps they wouldn't be so poorly regarded.

P.S. - The above statement doesn't mean Emmure is good, they are complete garbage and can eat my shit before I purchase their album.

I believe breakdowns (God, I hate that word) have begun to tarnish the definition of what "Heavy" is. Its like the more, the merrier. No.

I also feel because these bands are all trying to outheavy eachother, the consumers are the ones suffering. Its almost as if Metal Music in general is now regarded as a fad, and thats unacceptable. Its bands like Emmure and Acacia that ruin the bunch. Besides, true metal came from the 80s and 90s. This new Metal is tame. It might be heavy, but I see right the fuck through it.

I somewhat agree with you kygermo. I don't think that all new metal is tame and sure, there were some great metal and hardcore bands from the 80s and 90s, but, there are still "heavy" bands today that don't just rely on breakdowns. Many bands in the hardcore and metalcore scene do try and outheavy each other with their breakdowns, I agree.
