Bands that went from awesome to awful

Let's reminisce about bands that were fucking awesome, then over the course of time went to shit.

Exhibit 1

Eighteen Visions

The Psychotic Thought That Satan Gave to Jesus circa '98-99
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54-mJtUgPEU

Tower of Snakes circa '04
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XcP_t6G9WFg

Tonightless circa '06
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mksGK1NbUco&feature=fvwrel

Now you can see how they went from a super fucking heavy brutal hardcore band to scenie weenies who weren't ALL THAT BAD to ripping off bad music that were essentially recycled Stone Temple Pilots riffs.

Architects went from really badass tech metalcore to a c-rate Alexisonfire rip-off in a couple of years:

In The Desert 2006

Buried At Sea 2007
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFl8-ecBvcQ

Learn To Live 2011 (Alexisonfire rip off stuff)

exhibit 2

Comeback Kid went from kind of youth crew-y influenced melodic hardcore to formulaic boredom.

Lorelai circa '03
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xua_jWI2syY&feature=related

Broadcasting circa '06
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kP1UZ0GC2Ck&feature=related

cbk? yeah... that band meant a lot to me and a lot of my friends growing up, and they just kind of ran out of steam.

Exhibit 3

Earth Crisis were the torch bearers of vegan straight edge hardcore, which was like the scene metalcore of the mid-90s due to it's popularity (ExC made it all the way to CNN due to their politics), but decided to do like a good amount of bands at the time and give nu-metal a try, and well it was a let down.

Gomorrah's Season Ends circa '96 (we all know how sick Firestorm is so I figured I'd give another example by them since I know a lot of people on here only know them for that song)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mDbsdD6SdJw

Slither circa '00
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJ4fumhF38A

slayer, isn't shit now. world painted blood and christ illusion are still solid albums for a band going on 30 years old.

Weezer always sucked. That's the point of Weezer.

AFI after Sing The Sorrow sucked. Most people didn't even like that, but I did.

only AFI i'll ever listen to now is black sails, drowning, all hallows and maybe a couple of songs from their earlier albums (shut your mouth has some cool tracks). used to enjoy sing the sorrow but cannot listen to it anymore, everything after it was awful
