So they are like activists with computer skill, sweet


If these dudes even thought about hacking my computer they would catch the swiftness and quite frankly the utter beauty that are my Bo Staff skills

The amount of nodding in the video is a little unnerving.

These guys supported ES quite a lot, but this really isn't my thing. Grime and metal? Naaaah

Pretty great, taken them far too long to release something new. Getting Cold Shoulders vibes from this.

I have, but I don't like grime in general, so the appeal was always going to be limited for me

one thing i will say about this band is they have a fantastic guitarist. great riffs and always gets my head bobbing.

i just wish they would really experiment with their sound cuz as of now all their material is a 3 at best

Might be a bit early to ask them to experiment when all they have is one ep of pretty original material. Djent rap combo? I don't know anyone that does that.

ive heard one other band that does it but ive forgotten their name


tbh i think they can go places. get more complex with the guitars. add in some spacey ambient stuff sometimes or something i dunno

Could be. I just think it might be a bit early to be asking that. They could evolve in interesting ways down the line tho

yeah its an interesting concept that i dont think is as terrible as everyone made out

i think a lot of it was people being put off by the rappers accents and sorta grimey style (a lot of brits were put off by it)

and djent gets a lot of shit.

The problem I have is that djent is too polished, but i don't think it would work any other way. Same applies for the song ^

This song stands out compared to the EP stuff. Actual hooks for once.
