ETID

What can you say about a 40 sec clip really, but my impression is that their new vocalist will make them rather generic. And indeed, sounds very like ETID.

Sounded pretty good. I will agree Wade does sound a lot like Keith from ETID.

"Keith is a fucking boss. Hope to see a new ETID record later this year (I don't wanna wait until 2012)."

seriously dude. I was almost offended at the first comment saying so but then I swallowed my drunken pride and realized the similarities are wquite palpable.

really stoked to see how this all turns out

Yeah, this is awesome. Doesn't sound any bit like Grey Britain, but I knew it wouldn't. I'm stoked to see how the record turns out. And yeah definitely has an ETID feel to it.

The Track was ok. Guitat work seemd alot more generic than their previous work. the new vocalist is actually pretty good but its just not the same without frank.

Obviously not a great 'band' if you only care about the vocalist, dickhead.

It sounds great. And I get everyone's feelings toward the new singer - he ain't no Frank. I think if they changed their name from Gallows to something else it would be redeemable. In fact, I feel like most bands should do that when they completely change their sound. But HEY, that's just me.

It's not very similar to ETID except being spazzy and the vocals. I like it more than Grey Boring but it's spazzy hardcore we've all heard.

Obviously it's not Frank Gallows, and even if they tried to imitate it it would probably fall flat on it's face. It's still sounds great so you can't hold much against them

Chasing after the sound and legacy of Frank would be stupid for Gallows. With Frank out and Wade in, they're a whole new band, so you can expect a whole new sound

I'm excited

A whole new sound doesn't mean a ripoff of other bands in the same genre. We have plenty of that to go around.
