Oh come the fuck on, richerd. That's just a blatant lie. You's a troll?

Nothing wrong with a few hundred breakdowns.

Lyrics are pretty lulz. Have you listened to Continent? IDK, man. Take it for face value. I just think Vincent's not really trying to make the type of music you think he is.

i don't buy the whole, they know they're making crap music so judge them based on that. especially when they think they're revolutionizing metal. did you read my quote? that was just a sliver of the genius.

There's not even a little bit of death metal influence within Wormwood or anything The Acacia Strain actually writes. Where are the blast beats, the faster tempos or more complex song writing??? I hate to say this, but Vincent is right with his quote.

I'm fairly certain they don't think they're revolutionizing metal. In fact, according to some
people, the very notion that you'd even call this anything other than deathcore warrants a large
amount of poo going in and around your mouth.

They're not making crap music. They're just not making music with the same goals in mind as many of
the other bands you like a lot.
-If it's about the lyrics, do you shun instrumental music altogether because of a lack of lyrics?
-If it's about the breakdowns, are they static, boring, and literally the only thing the songs
incorporate, or is it rather that they've managed to insert breakdowns where none existed
before(which you WILL admit is different, regardless of your stance on breakdowns themselves).

Look, I could have very easily fanboy rated this album a 4. However, that's just not reasonable. The
reverse is true for automatically considering the album shit because it contains elements you don't
like. I can't believe I actually have to write this much to prove a pretty fucking obvious point.

I was just about to write a post like that, thanks Winsomniac. fromtheinside seems to shun this just because of the lyrics or breakdowns, which is the equivalent of a guy giving OK Computer a 2 because it's "too experimental."

It's like watching a donkey and an elephant poo-fight over who's better at flying. Analogies, get @ me.

it sucks you have to get into these arguments with these eliteists who feel the need to review cd's in genres they dont even like. and they'll trash the acacia strain, and bands like them, even though TAS has been playing this style way before anyone had heard the term "deathcore" and they'll trash bands for having too many breakdowns, and champion bands that have just as many useless blast beats, or whatever you call the techie Dillinger Escape Plan chaos riffs that BTBAM and Converge are littered with. with that said, the review was well written and entertaining to read,

Dude, if you can't review albums you don't like, no one would review at all. The whole idea would be pointless. So take your butthurt-edness somewhere else.

you'd be the one to speak, considering you made an angsty 'bands that are NOT hardcore' list today

Hmmm I couldve sworn Continent had more breakdowns than this. Maybe I need to listen more. Continent is still better though.

that being said, this was silly. it sucks when people don't give albums a chance because they hate the genre but there'd never be negative reviews if the reviews were just written by people that love that genre or band.
