none of their stuff has ever had THAT many breakdowns. besides when they do use breakdowns, they're usually pretty unique/creative sounding so i don't mind.

This band needs to break up and bring back The Fortune Teller. Don't care if it was a THA clone, they ruled.

it didnt sound like breakdowns to me. maybe i'm just fanboying hard here but it sounded pretty close to the elitist i know and love. good groovy riffage.

1:15 and 1:50 and the rest might as well have been breakdowns.

I honestly can't believe I made it through that. Can't imagine what listening to the whole album would be like.

O and the band name is worse than their music. Seriously, Elitist? *Facepalm*

They get hate because they sound like every other breakdown heavy band out there. Their songwriting isn't anything to write home about either.

meaning apparently and refers to any metalcore band you dont like

Elitist are taking over metal. Time to take down your Iron Maiden posters and donate your Metallica shirts to charity shops. Elitist are the future. I honestly can't wait for this

If "breakdown" doesn't work for you, then how about this: They use the lowest open note on their guitar way too much. Even when they do tons of other fret work, they always return to chugging that open note as a starting point.

OPENFRETOPENFRETOPENFRET - COOL LICK OR CHORD - OPENFRETOPENFRETOPENFRET

Lots of bands like this do it, even bands I like, but it's just a fact. It limits, makes stuff samey. Fin.

Well, considering that definition is NOT the definition of a breakdown, at all; "breakdown" doesn't work for me.

I was expecting this too be atrocious based off of the comments here. I was a bit taken back when it wasn't. Nothing groundbreaking, but they are churning the wheel of the metalcore genre a tad.

I can finally enjoy the vocals. That only took two EP's.

If they didn't waylay on the bottom strings open all the time it might have a heavier impact. As is it doesn't sound terrible, but awfully boring. Pass, unless the rest of each of those songs is completely different.

If something is entirely a breakdown, doesn't that mean it was never a breakdown?

SmokingTheClouds: I'm not saying that's the definition of a breakdown. I'm saying that's what others are trying to convey to you, because it's not terribly far off from a breakdown to never stop palm muting the open note.

He's obviously in the band. I hope he isn't one of the vocalists because they were both genuinely terrible.

LOL @ Urgency. Those vocals..... wow. Don't post that anywhere else for your bands sake.

The amount of negativity Elitist is getting is actually a bit surprising.

Return To Sender is actually so fucking good. like holy shit. might be one of my favourite elitist songs. the technical riffage satisfies my elitist craving

Listening to the EP, and it really doesn't impress me that much at all. I mean it's not bad, but it PALES in comparison to Reshape Reason, which was amazing. Maybe it'll grow on me, but so far BTB is a 3.

so far it's a 3.5 for me, i dont think it pales but it's defs not as good.

might grow on me though, and it's still a solid release.
