"I would like to personally welcome you to the new chapter in my life "The Killing Lights". As most of you know I was involved in a near fatal car accident many years back. I feel the name The Killing Lights properly represents my struggle with this tragic event & the new chapter in my music career."
lol fuck you, not dying is not a tragedy, your music is a fucking tragedy
I was in a near fatal accident about a year ago. I got the fuck over it pretty quick.
with a name like Vampires Everywhere! i would hope so
In all fairness it's a much better name than the old one, the logic behind it is pretty dumb though. If I was him I would've said something along the lines of wanting to be taken more seriously as a band and a name like Vampires Everywhere! wasn't helping.
The Killing Lights released their demo. - https://soundcloud.com/centurymedia/the-killing-lights-dont-turn
Band needs reason for name change. Band goes with classic "personally meeningful" reason with generic story behind it. Band is still bad.
I'd probably buy their merch if they said "people were making fun of us and I haven't been laid in 7 months so new name"
probably a good business strategy
Digging: Tim Hecker - An Imaginary Country
They shall be known as simply Vampires Everywhere now.
I think you really gotta hit low when you rip off Attack Attack!
Digging: Direct Hit! - Wasted Mind
There's a whole subgenre doin it now called eazycrab.
same shit different name
andcas is gonna be stoked when he reads this
Eh it's a little different it's like Chunk No Captain Chunk mixed with uhhhhhhhhhhh that one band that covere the Brittany Spears song. Name escapes me at the moment. It sucks and all but it does sort of sound different.
Digging: The Pine/The Saddest Landscape - Split
both names are pretty bad
at least vampires everywhere! is sort of tongue in cheek (or at least i hope so)
the killing lights is just bland
Doesn't suck as shittily as the last VE album but still not good. Name doesn't suck either now.
Digging: The Dear Hunter - Act IV: Rebirth in Reprise
I don't even like this band, but this thread makes me realize how fucking stupid the internet is, let's make fun of this guy cause he almost died and isn't coping well, trolls.
Can we talk about how no one has mentioned that this dude is calling himself Michael Vampire?
Vampires Everywhere is a pretty awful name, so good call on their part I guess.
They can change their name, but they can't change their current legacy of lame music.
the demo sounds generic, but technically better than any of their other stuff. vocals are pretty damn bad too. it sounds like he has to strain to hit the most basic notes. at least they aren't ripping off manson anymore, regardless.
awesome band one of the pioneers in metalcore and post hardcore
"Vampires Everywhere! change their name"
Dracula will now be known as Jeff, and that bitch from Underworld will now go by Veronica
I think this is a reflection of what people actually think when they get to remain anonymous
Well I find that scary italian :/
The Killing Lights is a pretty stupid band name and its literal meaning is also fucking stupid. Fuck this stupid band.
"Michael Vampire" Lol, how can anyone take that name seriously?
@Dance I don't see how a car wreck that killed absolutely no one is something he should have to "cope" with. I understand the occasional jolt in the car, or possibly a flashback in a dream, but this guy has said before in interviews that he refuses to drive because of that accident, when he wasn't even the one driving. That, to me, is using the incident as a crutch. Like I said, I was in a near fatal accident about a year ago as a passenger, and maybe I'm just weird, but the first thing I thought was "I'm glad my friend and I survived." I'd be fine if he just wrote a song about the accident, but if this new band name so reflects the accident, he's only going to be reminded of it every day.
They should've changed their name to Zombies Everywhere! Vampires are out
Digging: Kyson - The Water's Way
Fuck Vampires Everywhere, and fuck The Killing Lights
@Justinking oh why were you in a car accident before?
Vampires are no longer everywhere, i guess? Just back to reality, oh there goes gravity /////
New name was better before hearing the lore behind it Lol. Wow talk about personality crisis.First they rip off all the autotuned hardcore bands, than MarilynM after other bands like miw did, and here we have a poor mans version of all the generic bands you'll find on most of the popular Metalcore labels. This band is bad on every spectrum.
