Atreyu are Underrated Warriors

2021-03-04 by Rolling Girl | 47 Comments
Legendary Metalcore inventers Atreyu have just dropped two singles, "Underrated" and "Warrior" feat. Travis Barker. These come from their upcoming album Baptize which is set to drop June 4th via Search And Destroy records.

Of course this is the bands first release since the departure of vocalist Alex Varkatzas so anything heavy you hear is totally fake and the band has gone soft and sold out.

01. Strange Powers of Prophecy
02. Baptize
03. Save Us
04. Underrated
05. Broken Again
06. Weed
07. Dead Weight
08. Catastrophe
09. Fucked Up
10. Sabotage Me
11. Untouchable Feat. Jacoby Shaddix
12. No Matter What

I really tried..."Underrated" is ok, and I almost gave them credit for that until I heard "Warrior" which is unadulterated garbage.

Atreyu was my favorite band when I was in high school. If this is another imagine dragons covers album then I’ll pass.

"Metalcore inventors" lolwhat? I really hope this is a reference to that time they absurdly claimed to have invented a genre that existed for like 10+ years before they were even a band.

Surprised the mods didn't edit the text here lmao.

And yes I was referencing that quote from Alex, I was trying to be funny :c

I was actually pretty impressed by Underrated, Save Us was alright but Warriors is garbage holy shit.

I’m gonna come back to say they totally ripped off that broken sword motif from LOTR. I mean.... you can’t even make a SWORD BREAK look original??

Ah, yes, supreme mxc inventors have graced us with their presence again

4 seconds into Warrior and I'm already pretty sure Imma hate this song

Underrated wasn't too shabby, tho

The first song is probably the best of the 3 songs they've released for this album. Nothing really outstanding or something I'll actively replay when I spin some Atreyu.

That warrior song though... God lord, its so generic that it hurts. Sounds like they're aiming for sporting venue and WWE PPV exposure.

Additionally, lol at the people missing the metalcore inventers meme. Nice touch to the post.

Atreyu is the band equivalent of the guy in his late 20s you see walking around with a scene cut and ripped skinny jeans.

Like dude, move on.

Featuring a drummer when you already have a drummer is so weird

@Trebor it's more an added percussion part. Think Slipknot

I liked the manic energy of Underrated, but was still a bit annoying how it was trying to pander to radio rock lovers. Warrior is pretty bad with the exception of the drumline bit.

You’d think if you were trying to reinvent yourself in 2021 you’d probably not have features from Jacoby Shaddix, Matt Heafy and Travis Barker

When a band needs to associate to Travis Barker, you know it is bad sign.
