wow I don't think I've ever heard of someone getting fired for plagiarism
Hopefully in light of this gibbons has seen the flaw of his ways.

good band name

There's so many levels to this.
a). There are random youtubers out there writing and recording full on generic nu-metal songs.
b). Flaw is so creatively bankrupt that they're ripping off unknown youtubers' songs wholesale.
c). Unknown youtuber actually owned up to the fact that he had written the riffs on those Flaw songs.
d). Somehow Flaw haven't yet thought of just hiring the unknown youtuber to be their guitarist.
yea lotta flaws in this situation

It's almost as if writing nu-metal is really easy
Shame on you Tommy Gibbons

nu-metal is in a sorry state. we need bizkit to return and save it ASAP
Some of the comments on the original instrumental are pretty hilarious including this gold one:
"I was unaware of this, but I've been using this for over two years. It was on my band's first album. Is there a way we can work a deal so you can get the proper credit? I had no idea it was a royalty free track. Super bummed that I was lied to about the music being original."
How does this even happen
Vol IV: Because of the YouTubers
Disappointed there’s no comments about the fact this band’s whole career has been spent plagiarizing other D rate numetal bands
A flawed genre beyond repair. Just let it die in piece and never talk about it again
"Disappointed there’s no comments about the fact this band’s whole career has

Not true. Their first album Through the Eyes is one of the few nu-metal albums that's still listenable. Their second, Endangered Species is solid too. After that they turned to dog shit, though true.
yeah, through the eyes is one of the best nu-metal albums tbh, it still holds up
"d). Somehow Flaw haven't yet thought of just hiring the unknown youtuber to be their guitarist."
Damn, after Tool's disappointing release, can nu-metal survive yet another blow?

even the name Through the Eyes sounds like a Machine Head record
No surprise considering how mediocre these guys have always fuckin been
just give them each a songwriter credit and write out that $10 royalty check.
Also bring in a guitarist who can write original and - better yet - interesting songs.
"even the name Through the Eyes sounds like a Machine Head record"
It does lol. Give it a listen though, there are actually some really good impassioned songs on it.
^Through the Eyes is one of my favorite "nu metal" albums. Don't get the hate for this band.
I mean, I get the hate for that guitarist but not the other members or their music. I've always liked Flaw more than most other bands in that genre.
Endangered Species is where it's at. It's such a sorrowful, anguished record. "Consequences of Emotion" and "Keep Me Behind" are stellar too, somehow got left off the album.
That said, this whole situation is laughable. The level of replication, down to electronic whooshes and whatnot, reeks of not at all accidental plagiarism.
those riffs suck anyway so whatever
also it kinda sounds like a shitty version of my own summer so
crime doesn't pay, kids
what a mess

Lmao. At least steal some good riffs.

just heard the song. so we just ripping off power chords now? this dude will never live this down
I guess their approach to music creation was... flawed?
Chris Volz is a good vocalist and decent lyricist. He needs to find better musicians to play for his band. Both as far as someone who won't plagiarize, and people who can actually write good riffs. Not sure what happened to the original lineup.
Also, this song isn't one of the stolen songs. Chris had permission to use it. Tbh he should just pick up a guitar and write himself since the people he's chosen to do the job haven't been very good.
was bound to happen
Chris has always been the only somewhat talented guy in this band. Wasted potential really
