These guys have always just been easy listening for hardcore fans.
Yeah they do have some pretty cool songs here and there tho
Digging: Hollow Earth - Silent Graves
Cool. I've been wanting some new melodic hardcore. I think the clean vocals should have been omitted. They aren't bad but I like melodic hardcore when they scream and yell passionately over those melodic parts.
Digging: Death - Symbolic
Loved Stroma. Song and album art are good.
Digging: Stellar Young - Vessels
fuck yes, portland hXc haha
I remember seeing this band when I was fat and 16. They were good.
I'm thin and 21 now. Fun.
Ian's vocals sound awesome on this, but it's just too repetitive.
Digging: Black Sheep Wall - I'm Going to Kill Myself
this will be their farewell album, should be amazing.
Digging: Enter Shikari - The Mindsweep
Loved Capture & Embrace, couldn't get into Stroma though. This sounds okay.
I've always had a soft spot for these guys. Sounds like Ian has improved even more, but they may have overdone it a little with the cleans. Bet the album will be good, but it probably won't sound much different.
