These guys and Phil Robertson should collaborate together on an album.

It'd be the next Lulu.

Fuck this genre is so generic, "obviously no shit 8bit", but really, every fucking Metalcore band has this "OH SHIT MAN I'M TAKING A STAND" or "ARGGGHH HEAR ME THROUGH MY PROTEST MICROPHONE AND SKI MASK" brand. Most Metalcore bands with this sound have been around since 2007 for the most part haven't changed their sound at all, only a handful have actually changed their sound to something other than what was on their debut. So there are tons of these bands that have been around for almost 10 years from the inception of scene kids to whatever 5panel hat kids referred to as now, probably 5 albums in their discography, and there are kids who buy each of these albums even though they sound the exact fucking same. How do these bands have fans. How can these bands be content with what they put out? /8BIT RANT.

The whole Phil Robertson thing is stupid. He said that he didn't agree with homosexuality, but in no way was "homophobic" or hateful in anything he said so A&E basically kicked him off the network.

The main focus is placed on their uncomfortably religious lyrics, and as a result, composition falls to the wayside.

For Today really sucks.

It is very possible for a metal band to have religious lyrics while still not making your music absolutely unbearable to listen to. A few examples of doing this that immediately spring to mind are:

With Blood Comes Cleansing, Fit For A King, Norma Jean, and Impending Doom.

All great bands with good music that doesn't sound like the band is aggressively trying to convert you via their music.

Actually Phil compared homosexuality to bestiality. So that's pretty homophobic.

"Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men...Don't be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won't inherit the kingdom of God. Don't deceive yourself. It's not right."

"It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man's anus. That's just me. I'm just thinking: There's more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I'm saying? But hey, sin: It's not logical, my man. It's just not logical."

Also: "Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I'm with the blacks, because we're white trash...They're singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, ‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!...Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues."

@Multifarious There's nothing homophobic about a man believing what the Bible says about sex. He didn't relegate a special place in hell for gays or anything of the sort. I'm just gonna start making up "phobic" for anyone with a different view. You don't like prog? You progaphobe! Don't think anyone should be listening to country? Why you country hating bigot!

I have nothing against this band, I'm not a gay man that supports gay rights. I'm also not a straight man that strangely gets overly offensive when it comes to gay rights. I am straight man that doesn't give a shit about gay rights. Now lets talk about this song.

For Today has been on the scene for a while now that has put out 3 really good albums, but this and a couple other singles that are leading to the new album are really boring and a tad generic. Their pass 3 albums have been nothing but the same recycled metacore they've always done. If they dont try to make their music more fresh than they have bigger issues on their hands than these stupid ass people breaking their backs to support the gay community.

great song. new record will slay.
I also dont understand why a band needs progression if they are on top of their genre anyway. For Today can't get better, so they basically deliver breaker2.0 and 3.0 with their newer outputs, which really isn't a problem at all. August Burns Red should have done this with Messengers, Linkin Park with Hybrid Theory, etc. you knew for yourself what failures Leveler & the last two LP records were. thank god ABR woke up and included some chugging again, that's why Rescue & Restore does not suck in the first place.
tl;dr: if you are a haterboy, leave the younger genres alone.

Bahaha younger? Metalcore's almost 20 years old. And the "age" of a fully developed genre shouldn't influence who's allowed to critique it. Silly boy.

so it's logical to condemn those who are born to prefer anus over vagina as sinners?

what's disturbing to me is this dude has a masters in education : /

Even if it was proven people were born with homosexual tendencies (which it isn't; look up the studies yourself they're all
inconclusive but still pushed by the media) it doesn't contradict Christian morality. The bible says all people are born with a
tendency to sin, so I'm born with a tendency to lie, cheat, steal etc. Christians don't think you sin for having the attraction but
instead for doing the act.

But in practice, the ones that give a crap at all often do hate the individuals for who they are, regardless of what they've actually done (if anything) regarding that particular "sin."

@zaruyache I feel you man. I'm sorry if Christians or "Christians" have wrongly hurt you; I'm against real hate as much as anyone. I'm just saying Jesus never hated people that sinned (which is everyone) but gave his life for them and called them to live a better life. That's what real Jesus followers do.

Christianity is pretty clear on NOT judging people.

butt sex might be a 'sin', but blogging about those who take a shot in the shit are fucking up too.

the only time I've called some one a faggot is when he offered me a blow job and I told him I was married. he said no one had to know and I said fuck off faggot.

I think Jesus would have my back on that one
