I have always absolutely detested Chiodos, in every way. I don't expect this to change that. It's gotta be a good paycheck though. Hopefully this lasts for an album and we get a reinvigorated The Fall of Troy in a couple of years.

It'll be interesting, that's for sure. Chiodos has always been a band that I felt could be good but were held back by all the scene-ness surrounding them. Maybe this will change that. I hope he gets a big say in the writing process and contributes vocals as well

Doppelganger was a fun album for it's time, TFoT got progressively stale, now singer/guitarist is joining a continuously stale band.

I couldn't "meh" more if I tried.

If they kicked Owens out and brought back Balmer... and then kicked out their drummer and brought the one from Illumaudio back... and then kicked out Erak and brought Jason Hale back, they would probably make a good album.

^Hes better than Craig Owens. Although that's not saying a lot as Owens has the most annoying voice. Illuminaudio is better than anything that Owens has ever done, including the first few Chiodos albums.

the guy blatantly tries to sound like owens but doesn't have the range to pull it off

Could make the band somewhat better or make them worse. Regardless, the result should be interesting or at least laughable.

why do you think that? chiodos has definitely figured out how to write an actual song now, so having erak in the mix will just add to the riffitude, i think they could balance everything out
