That was awful.

SOAD creates their songs around making the instrumentation precisely matching the quirky vocals and this version doesn't come close to doing that.

What a soulless, half-assed, by the books, hollow shell of a cover. This isn't even a cover, they
aren't making it their own, it's just like a play-through of the song itself but with screaming. And I
think it's a shit excuse if adding cookie monster growls with no variety to their cover is "making the
song their own" in their eyes, because that just shows how mostly every band in this genre has no god
damn identity outside of the same old loud noise they all make. Taking a band that is so unique, and
being this fucking dense on a cover of their material is just a disgrace. I liked these guys on their
album "A Higher Place", but they have gotten so damn hopelessly generic.

Yeah, if you say they aren't Deathcore, you're just being silly. You may not like the fact that your favourite band is tagged with the unfortunate title, but it's there to stay.

I actually like Born of Osiris, but this is a weak cover. Just had to alter the riffs, and the vocals aren't even as expressive as an average Born of Osiris song. It's all too bland and stiff and monotone, from the music to the voice. Sigh. I had hoped for the best, but I didn't get it.

"I can't think of any band who could properly cover soad."

think of anyone else. This is however one of the worse covers I've ever heard.

mediocre at best instrumentally. way too monotone vocally, this guy has no range or style. and i get the point of covers trying to sound different, but this barely resembles science musically. the signature riff in the chorus isn't even there. on its own, if they somehow wrote this, i would say it fails hard at keeping my attention

The vocals was bad, I'd have done this cover slightly differently if I were them too. They just got lazy. And don't be hating on the trend of lyric videos, I actually like the trend, as they help people decipher the lyrics when they're growled. Would be kinda cool to have a lyric video running projected onto the background when your band plays in a school or something
