  • bloodshy i think you're the closest person i have to a musical neighbor, based on artists liked
    December 3 01:42 AM
  • SteakByrnes Nice dude! For me to get the most accurate reading of my listening I'd have to completely move over to spotify lol, but I like my local files too much and having itunes on my phone. I would say lastfm would be more accurate but it wouldn't since I moved all of my itunes plays to lastfm a few months ago lol
    December 2 07:48 PM
  • SteakByrnes Funny enough, their first EP and first LP were pretty heavily inspired by TDEP haha. And nice dude lol my top genre was also metalcore, top artist was DGD tho unsurprisingly haha. I had 42k mintues logged
    December 2 07:44 PM
  • SteakByrnes Nice dude, and yea man Sleepless is huge! I love how ethereal it feels, they really built off of their last album so well. Those huge choruses get my blood pumpin my man
    December 2 07:35 PM
  • SteakByrnes hell yea man absolutely, it's a strong AOTY contender for me! Last Friday was huge man, new Coletta, new Palm Reader, and new Plini lol they all ruled
    December 2 01:08 PM
  • SteakByrnes Duuuuuude yessss I love hearing that! I love that album so much man haha, the closer is such a good build up to an explosive ending. Hope you dig the rest of the album a lot too! And nice man I hope you have a good time with the fam!
    November 25 08:26 PM
  • SteakByrnes I'll give it a spin my guy, and hell yea man THAN is a fun time! and righteous dude I'm hype for your thoughts on Daybreaker
    November 25 02:47 AM
  • SteakByrnes Nah man I didn't, should I?
    November 25 01:53 AM
  • SteakByrnes Dude yes I really dig that new record of theirs! I usually don't go for that sound too much but it's done so well, def gonna end up as one of the better albums from this year!
    November 24 09:54 PM
  • SteakByrnes That's righteous man haha that album is full of bangers! Early Grave is hella fun to play, Dead March sounds like a rad one to learn too lol
    November 24 07:50 PM
  • SteakByrnes THAN gets a lot of unwarranted hate, tracks 1-5 are all bangers man! Don't forget to check Hollow Crown too! And nice man, hopefully you dig Palm Reader man they own
    November 24 07:27 PM
  • SteakByrnes That's fair man haha, and yea dude they were super mathy up until they released Here and Now lol. Daybreaker is my favorite of theirs!
    November 24 12:53 AM
  • SteakByrnes Hell yes dude get on that Palm Reader binge! They slap very hard, and yea I'm feeling this new Plini could be his best work! As for Architects I'm not a fan of this change lol, but at least they didn't make the same song for like 40th time
    November 24 12:16 AM
  • SteakByrnes I haven't been jamming a ton of new stuff, but I'm hype for Friday man! Coletta, Palm Reader, and new Plini man gonna be a hype Friday
    November 22 11:01 PM
  • christopher164 We beat Baylor.
    November 22 06:57 AM
  • SteakByrnes Hell yea man I'm glad you're having a good time in college! Keep on pushin through the semester man you're almost there haha. How are the jams?
    November 19 10:30 PM
  • SteakByrnes Brooo what's good my man, I've been doing well! Really settling into my new apartment well, I love it so far haha. How have you been man?
    November 19 06:44 PM
  • SteakByrnes Nice dude glad you're looking forward to it! and oh yea you'd mentioned the volleyball team a while back, that should be fun lol hopefully they're safe about it
    October 26 12:11 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea man I'm hoping the Rays can pull through, they're a fun squad. And nice man you were talking about possibly doing that, that should take the stress levels down a notch! Have you joined any clubs or anything?
    October 21 12:10 PM
  • SteakByrnes Nice dude glad you had a good time! I'm not too happy with the result lol I wanted Rays vs Braves because I'm sick of the Dodgers
    October 19 12:26 PM
  • SteakByrnes That's good man! The time will go by quick my guy, soon you'll be done with the semester and you'll have time to breath haha
    October 10 06:14 PM
  • SteakByrnes I feel that man lol, school gets pretty crazy towards the middle of the semester. Just don't let it consume ya haha, you'll get through it man! My last few semesters I just focused entirely on school and didn't even really listen to music or play games lol, I just wanted to be done
    October 9 12:12 PM
  • SteakByrnes Lol it's all good, how's school been going for ya? And hell yea man, it's such a stellar album!
    October 5 07:36 PM
  • SteakByrnes Gotta check that new Svalbard brother it's a strong AOTY contender for me
    September 29 02:05 PM
  • SteakByrnes That sounds like it owns lol I'll def hop on it soon brother, I've heard good things about it from multiple people now haha
    September 18 08:24 PM
  • SteakByrnes I might dig it more then! END got pretty stale and one note for me lol
    September 18 08:20 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yooo I've been meaning to get into that band for a while now, gonna give that a listen as soon as I can!
    September 18 08:11 PM
  • SteakByrnes Lol yea everywhere I look people are saying it's super mid, idk if I'll listen to it tbh. All the singles I heard weren't really good unfortunately
    September 18 06:13 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea that show absolutely went hard, I loved it haha. I do recommend seeing them even now, I saw them last year and they still kicked ass! I got a pic with the Kirbs man, I told him about the first time I saw them and his face lit up and he said "Oh yea I remember that show that was a sick tour" lol it was great
    September 17 09:08 PM
  • SteakByrnes That's fair, a lot of people were introduced to them via STN or Deathgrip haha. I first heard of them because of a show I went to in 2013, they performed before The Plot In You and ruled so I started jamming them hard, CD was like still brand new at the time!
    September 17 03:25 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea I might stay away lol. I really only listen to CD, Slave to Nothing, and Descendants anymore, everything else feels like more of the same just less interesting to me. Deathgrip does have slappers tho for sure
    September 17 03:19 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea lol, I know a guy who's 6'5 and it's always wild seeing him! He makes me feel short even tho I'm pretty tall compared to the average height lol. Also, kinda debating on whether or not I'll even jam new FFAK tbh, I wasn't impressed by any songs that were released prior
    September 17 03:09 PM
  • SteakByrnes Oh wow lol right on dude, I don't meet too many people that are taller than I am
    September 17 02:54 PM
  • SteakByrnes Nice dude! Lol how tall are you? I'm 6'2 myself!
    September 17 02:45 PM
  • SteakByrnes Oh wow dude that's great! Had no idea haha, volleyball always seemed like fun for sure. I did a lot of parkour and free running with a bunch of friends but haven't done it in like 2 or 3 years, I miss it lol
    September 17 02:39 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea don't overload yourself man, take some time to relax a bit with easy classes and whatnot, volleyball sounds pretty dope haha
    September 17 02:35 PM
  • SteakByrnes Oh damn that sucks, yea you should get out of that asap my guy lol. Better to spend your time and focus your efforts on a double major if you really want to
    September 17 02:24 PM
  • SteakByrnes Hahaha yea I didn't do any performance music stuff, just did theory classes because those are the only ones worth it to me. I'm not even sure what the honors college thing is lol
    September 17 02:16 PM
  • SteakByrnes Do it man! I knew a bunch of people who did double majors, it's a lot of work but definitely doable!
    September 17 01:41 PM
  • SteakByrnes Nice dude it's good to get a minor in there! I had a math minor just from all of the classes I had to take for my computer science degree lol so it was easy to do. That kinda surprises me that there isn't a journalism minor, maybe you could do a double major lol
    September 17 12:05 PM
  • SteakByrnes Haha yea dude I had to take so much math, lots of studying and late nights. It's good to get those gen ed classes out of the way so you can focus on major classes your last few years! There were a bunch of random classes I took just because I could lol, I took some music theory classes and literature classes and I liked them all
    September 16 01:48 PM
  • SteakByrnes Hell yea man that's dope! I'm glad you're having a good time, and yea it can be tough not seeing family a lot but you'll get to see them on breaks and stuff at least! Calc was a wild time, I had to do it up to Calc 3 and by the end of it I did not wanna do anymore lmao
    September 16 01:57 AM
  • SteakByrnes I'm doing well my man! I've been ordering parts for my first PC build and it's super exciting lol, and work's been going well! How's college life treating ya?
    September 15 09:49 PM
  • SteakByrnes Bro that Static Dress song owned, hype to hear what they've got cookin up
    September 14 05:44 PM
  • SteakByrnes Ooo that sounds dope lol thanks for the rec, I'll jam it in a bit
    September 3 06:59 PM
  • SteakByrnes Niiice I'll be sure to jam it when it comes out then! And yes definitely, I had previously only heard their latest 3 but The Revelation is their best lol it's so good. I recommend jamming The Revelation, Fateless, and the latest one
    August 31 08:21 PM
  • SteakByrnes That sounds promising! I'll def give it a shot then! You ever jam Coldrain?
    August 31 08:17 PM
  • SteakByrnes Word lol I'll give them a shot then, I'm not a fan of nu metal most of the time but if it's done well then it slaps
    August 31 08:11 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea I can hear some of that haha, they're just some wildly heavy and vicious djent that really does what it does well. And nah I've never heard of them lol what are they like?
    August 31 07:58 PM
  • SteakByrnes Right?? Lmao it is soooooo good. It's stupid heavy, the guitarists throw in these wild noises everywhere and riff so hard, sounds fantastic
    August 31 07:48 PM
  • SteakByrnes If you haven't checked Event Horizon or the s/t debut you definitely should
    August 31 07:00 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea it was Psychosis lol, but that's good to hear that everything else is better! I'll give it a jam in a bit probably
    August 31 07:00 PM
  • SteakByrnes Nice glad to hear it man. And nah I haven't yet, I jammed a single a few weeks ago tho and it was good, kinda not what I expected from them but it was done well enough lol. Their debut last year was one of my favorites of 2019
    August 31 06:27 PM
  • SteakByrnes Hopefully you're all good man! My gf's college is going under a 2 week lockdown since there were over 100 cases, dumb people partying and not following guidelines
    August 31 03:18 AM
  • SteakByrnes Ooof man that sucks, yea there are so many dumb people partying and doing dumb s*** idk why college kids aren't taking this as seriously as they should. They just feel like they're invincible
    August 30 05:22 PM
  • SteakByrnes Definitely, it's very good lol idk why people here are s***ting on it
    August 30 03:22 AM
  • SteakByrnes I don't know why JT sticks to that midrange like 90% of the time lol, it gets really boring really fast
    August 28 12:08 PM
  • SteakByrnes True that, hopefully they announce an album sometime soon tho lol. Somebody said that apparently spring 2021 is when it's coming but idk it's up in the air. The song has already grown more on me lol
    August 27 06:58 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea JT is actually pretty solid when he's showing his range for once lol, but yea Jesse's guitar playing is so wild lol. I love that super fast pick scraping that he does on the song lol it sounds dope
    August 27 06:49 PM
  • SteakByrnes I did! It's a solid track all around, nothing mind blowing but it'd def be one of the better tracks on Neon so that's a positive. JT still sounds monotonous as hell for the most part which I just accept now lol he'll never be that great. Jesse's solo is absolutely killer, he shreds out hard and it sounds very Augmenty at times. Chorus is solid enough, JT's backing cleans are generic (just like his screams go figure lol). Overall a very 3.7 track, I'm looking forward to the album
    August 27 06:37 PM
  • SteakByrnes I really hope so lmao, I did like Neon a bit but I wanna actually love another album by them. That band made my two favorite albums of all time
    August 26 10:30 PM
  • SteakByrnes Nah I didn't, gonna just jam it tomorrow lol I hope it's more Eye of God type stuff
    August 26 09:56 PM
  • SteakByrnes Good luck bro lol, that'd be sweet if you got your professor into Botch lmao
    August 26 02:29 PM
  • SteakByrnes True lol, hopefully he at least appreciates it. I had a short stories professor who I got along with pretty well and I showed him Dance Gavin Dance and he liked them lol so you never know
    August 26 12:12 PM
  • SteakByrnes Hell yea lmao I wonder how the professor would react. Honestly he might know of it but who knows
    August 26 12:13 AM
  • SteakByrnes Oh that's sick! Jazz is sweet, I love throwing on jazz from time to time, and it really augments different genres when they incorporate it into the music like Plini and Owane and artists like that. That'll be a dope class for sure
    August 25 10:21 PM
  • SteakByrnes That's good man I'm glad! Just make sure to balance the fun with the education lol stay on top of that classwork and s*** man
    August 25 12:29 PM
  • SteakByrnes Thanks man I hope so too! and oh yikes lol, at least they stayed out of class.How does it feel to finally start college man?
    August 24 02:09 PM
  • SteakByrnes It's been going pretty well, today was a little hectic but it's all good lol. Gonna be hopefully moving into an apartment soon!
    August 22 12:19 AM
  • SteakByrnes Yea that would suck man, hopefully everybody takes it seriously so the campus can stay open
    August 21 04:33 PM
  • SteakByrnes Oh wow lol I'm surprised they have so many in person, be careful bro. Must be exciting tho haha
    August 21 12:22 PM
  • SteakByrnes That?s awesome bro I?m glad it?s going well! Are your classes all online or are some in person?
    August 21 04:02 AM
  • SteakByrnes Oh sweet dude! How'd the move go?
    August 20 02:31 AM
  • bloodshy nice dude, yeah. i'm pretty into giving unknown bands more exposure as well. looks like you do a lot of reviews, i bet that would help a lot for some smaller bands, at least on the sput community
    August 16 08:20 PM
  • Crxmateo I see Anberlin mentioned. They're one of my all time favorite bands. Super underrated
    August 16 06:47 AM
  • SteakByrnes Oh sweet dude I'll add them to my list! Yesterday I went through all of Anberlin's discography haha so I might take today to just jam stuff I know, this weekend I'll give them a shot bro thanks for the rec
    August 14 12:07 PM
  • SowingSeason I'll get around to it soon! Thanks for letting me know
    August 12 09:48 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea I bet, ever since Earthwalker they've had a few duds on each album. Worldwide Suicide is a weird one lol, I think Jake sounds great on it but the song was just kinda boring
    August 12 12:28 PM
  • SteakByrnes True lol, I haven't gone back to that MTS album in a long while it feels like. I keep forgetting a new In Hearts Wake dropped too lol I gotta hop on that
    August 12 12:35 AM
  • SteakByrnes That is the best song they've ever done lol, I'd be down for an album of that
    August 12 12:30 AM
  • SteakByrnes That's be sweet man haha I was just looking at Crystal Lake tabs the other day, been thinking about getting a 7 string since I've always wanted one and now have the funds for it
    August 8 04:42 PM
  • SteakByrnes Lol all good man, and damn nice dude! It must've felt great to get it down haha
    August 7 09:42 PM
  • SteakByrnes Oh daaaaaaaamn dude that was tight!! It sounded flawless haha good stuff man, how long did that take?
    August 6 12:42 PM
  • SteakByrnes That's a shame about their house damage, at least none were hurt tho. Man that must've been scary
    August 5 03:41 PM
  • SteakByrnes Damn dude that's insane! I'm glad nothing happened while you were there man, did any of your friends get effected by it?
    August 5 12:08 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea man that was wild, that explosion was like a movie it was crazy. How close was that to where you were?
    August 5 02:16 AM
  • Beardog No problem mate!
    August 1 03:51 PM
  • SteakByrnes I'm hype to jam it, haven't jammed a new progcore act in a while lol
    July 30 07:51 PM
  • SteakByrnes oooo sounds like my thing, I'll add it to my list and jam it asap my guy. I'm down for some good proggy core in my life rn
    July 30 07:40 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea dude lmao that Gulch release whips hard, some real beefy dumb hardcore
    July 30 07:16 PM
  • SteakByrnes Word I'll give it a shot later my guy :]
    July 30 04:47 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea I bet man! Those first few steps and days into college are so eye opening already haha, I'm sure you'll have a great time. And hell yea try to meet as many people as you can
    July 30 04:13 PM
  • SteakByrnes Lol that's fair, I'd say getting prepped for college is more important at the moment. Are you excited bro??
    July 30 04:05 PM
  • SteakByrnes Bunch of random things lol, that new Gulch is a ripper tho I highly recommend. I wanna go on a t swift binge soon so I can properly rank her stuff lol I just know 1989 is the best. How about you man?
    July 30 03:57 PM
  • SteakByrnes Lol just stay safe brother, have fun tho my guy! College is a fun time and you'll meet lots of cool people I'm sure
    July 27 05:49 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea dude lol, he said he's gonna give me a key to the house lol I'm pretty hype. Gonna suck not having him close by but he'll be happier out there, he's very excited. And yea man once August hits those weeks will be gone lol that's how it always felt for me when I was in college
    July 27 05:42 PM
  • SteakByrnes That's good that you guys are all good! and yea I bet it's a little stressful lol, but that's good that you're leaving for college soon! It'll fly by and you'll be there in no time haha, and I've been good man! I just saw my best friend yesterday for the first time in months lol he's moving to Arizona with his fiance and brothers so it's a little sad, but I'll visit him as soon as I can.
    July 27 05:36 PM
  • SteakByrnes True lol how's it been being back in the states?
    July 26 08:36 PM
  • SowingSeason I'll tear to shreds any review you would like! ;-)
    July 26 07:02 PM
  • SteakByrnes Lmao I was wondering what happened but it's all good bro, I wasn't totally in love with Folklore but it was a nice listen. I still prefer 1989, especially after relistening to it lol
    July 26 05:26 PM
  • SowingSeason I'll check it out for sure!
    July 25 01:09 PM
  • Lucman Oh man, I'm looking forward to reading that!
    July 25 03:19 AM
  • Lucman Hey dude! I've been well. Just enjoying the wet and rainy weather. Perfect for Folklore haha
    July 25 03:15 AM
  • SteakByrnes Lol gotcha broski, gotta help a fellow sput homie out so that's all good
    July 15 01:48 AM
  • SteakByrnes Oh dang, hopefully they just lay down the guidelines and whatnot. My gf got a letter from her school a while back stating all the new regulations and stuff it was a long letter lol
    July 13 09:07 PM
  • SteakByrnes Word man I'll check them out after work my guy, and nice lol hopefully concerts are a thing later this year
    July 13 07:35 PM
  • SowingSeason I only heard the most recent and don't remember much about it. :-/
    July 13 12:52 PM
  • SteakByrnes Devil May Care has some super high peaks tho
    July 12 11:31 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea they pull off the straight forward mxc so well, I think it's their best album for sure lol
    July 12 11:31 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea dude they just went OFF on Enigmatic Smile, songs like Naked City, Panic Attack, and Traveler just go dumb hard and I love it haha
    July 12 06:26 PM
  • SteakByrnes Good stuff man! And yea that'll be good to give them some room for discussion for sure, I've always been a little sad I can never really discuss them on here lol
    July 12 05:22 AM
  • SteakByrnes The debut is dumb fun lol, they made a reissue of it that changes around the tracklist and adds some songs so I recommend listening to that version
    July 12 05:05 AM
  • SteakByrnes Oh hell yea man that'd be sick! They don't have any reviews so I have nowhere to talk about them lol do it up brother!
    July 12 04:17 AM
  • SteakByrnes God of Fire is fun and Ryo and Ryan sound amazing on it, def a song for a live environment lol. The other song was pretty meh I gotta say, sounded like every melodic metalcore band ever in the 2000s lol. Ryan's cleans are nice tho
    July 11 05:43 AM
  • SteakByrnes Ah gotcha gotcha, nice dude I hope that process goes smoothly! And hell yea that's exciting, that's gonna come up quick man! Kinda wild to think we're already halfway through the year lol
    July 8 02:48 PM
  • SteakByrnes oof lol that's a long day of flights, what are you doing once you get to LA? Just gonna book a hotel or something?
    July 8 02:38 PM
  • SteakByrnes Oh damn lol that must be wild! How long is your flight supposed to be?
    July 8 12:07 PM
  • SteakByrnes Do it brother! And yea I've jammed them before, never a full album or anything but they're solid. The vocalist is wild
    July 6 06:33 PM
  • SteakByrnes Oh trust me I watched all of those performances she did lol, I binged like everything of theirs this weekend haha. That Blessed Be song is like deathcore PVRIS it's great
    July 6 06:16 PM
  • SteakByrnes Apparently the last iwrestledabearonce album is good but I never jammed it, I hated them back when they first started lol. Glad I gave Spiritbox a chance tho, that's the kinda stuff I've been missing for a while! Belcarra owns hard
    July 6 06:07 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea I'd heard Courtney in her band called Unicron so I knew she ruled, but my bias towards iwrestledabearonce is what was keeping me from checking spiritbox out lol which was stupid of me
    July 6 06:03 PM
  • SteakByrnes I thought it was a ripper man, I'm kicking myself for never giving them a chance before lol I jammed them like all weekend
    July 6 06:00 PM
  • SteakByrnes Nice dude I had a feeling you'd dig it! The second song on that EP is so damn good, absolutely stellar song and one of my favorite songs from last year
    July 1 01:41 PM
  • SteakByrnes Haha yea dude, they've been on top of the metalcore and progcore scene for years and years. So much good s*** comes from there
    July 1 01:26 PM
  • SteakByrnes Word that sounds like my type of stuff so I'll give it a go! Have you ever checked Windwaker? They have an EP from last year that's super solid and got overlooked, def seems like something you'd dig too
    July 1 01:21 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea it def has that Dillinger feel to it! And nah I haven't, idek who that is lol what are they?
    July 1 01:12 PM
  • SteakByrnes Oh nice dude! That's def one of my favorites of this year, I haven't jammed it in a while tho so I should give it another spin soon haha. That guitar work is superb
    July 1 12:57 PM
  • SteakByrnes Hell yea man, I'll try to get on them in the next few days or so
    June 30 05:53 PM
  • SteakByrnes Broooo Vildhjarta was like the hardest s*** imaginable back in high school, my friends and I played Dagger so much when we hung out and jammed haha. I honestly can't think of other thally bands rn, I don't remember them outside of Vildhjarta. And hell yea brother we gotta hop on that Circa train
    June 30 05:49 PM
  • SteakByrnes Lol I can give them a shot, I haven't thalled in a hot minute lmao I was all about that style back in the day. I kinda wanna go through Circa Survive's discog since I've only ever heard two albums and I never go back to them
    June 30 05:44 PM
  • SteakByrnes Watch Out is fantastic, that's my second favorite behind Crisis! And lmao nice dude, one of these days I wanna jam 1989 just to hear it
    June 30 05:38 PM
  • SteakByrnes I'll add it to my list for sure, I've been busy jamming Alexisonfire the past two days haha they own. I had heard some songs here and there over the years but finally decided to do a deep dive and I'm glad I did
    June 30 05:33 PM
  • SteakByrnes Damn that's a name I haven't heard since high school lol, nah I haven't jammed that I've only heard their first two albums, worth a shot?
    June 30 05:29 PM
  • SteakByrnes Same here man, I wouldn't have given a lot of pop a second chance or even a chance in the first place haha. I'm still more a fan of Asian pop than anything else but I've come to like some western pop
    June 29 06:00 PM
  • SteakByrnes Hey man that's totally fair lol, there are a bunch of album's that I thought were the best and nowadays I wouldn't even consider them lmao. This site really helped me branch out
    June 29 05:48 PM
  • SteakByrnes Lol the first review I remember from you was the EIS review, and I disagreed with the summary you put lmao. Good review tho for sure
    June 29 05:37 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea we'll see, if I'm ever in the writing mood I'll try to get something else out lol. That'd be a huge gap from first review to next
    June 29 05:34 PM
  • SteakByrnes Lol yea, sometimes it just comes to you and you gotta tackle it while that flame is burning. I have a bunch of rough drafts that never saw the light of day
    June 29 05:31 PM
  • SteakByrnes Haha thanks man I appreciate it, I've always wanted to get another few reviews out there but either the motivation isn't there or I just can't find the time lol. I wish I could get back into that headspace when writing that review, I just shot that out of my brain like nothing
    June 29 05:22 PM
  • SteakByrnes I might! You can check out the Young Lions one I did lol I did it over 3 years ago
    June 29 05:11 PM
  • SteakByrnes That'd be sick, at one point I was thinking of writing a review but idk lol. I might drag out my notes and dust off the old word doc
    June 29 05:07 PM
  • SteakByrnes Nice man I'm glad you dug! They're so damn solid all around, I love the drummer man. The drummer does the more clean singing like chorusy stuff, one of the guitarists does the shouty cleans, and then there's the screamer lol
    June 29 05:04 PM
  • SteakByrnes Oh yea man, check out Weaver by The Parallel. One of my favorites from 2018 and it wasn't too big unfortunately
    June 27 10:54 PM
  • SteakByrnes Hell yea brother Frankie's lows have always been pure gas, dude sounds amazing when doing lows
    June 26 07:30 PM
  • SteakByrnes Nice man! Look At Yourself is super solid, there are some downright nasty good vocals on that haha, and the guitar work is a lot of fun
    June 26 07:22 PM
  • SteakByrnes Idk enough about them to confirm or deny that both screamed lol
    June 26 07:13 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea I kinda feel the same about it, they should've stuck with what they had going on in the back half of the album for the whole thing for sure lol. The vocalists are both pretty good tho!
    June 26 07:08 PM
  • SteakByrnes Nice dude I hope you like them a bit more! And nice dude Hollow Front was pretty solid, kinda generic at times but they did the sound well enough for me to like it haha
    June 26 06:59 PM
  • SteakByrnes Lol yea definitely, those are two of the weaker ones although both have bangers for me lol. Grave Markings on EE is super good and actually showcases some sweet lead guitar work for a change.
    June 26 05:47 PM
  • SteakByrnes My guy you should jam Speaker of the Dead and Look At Yourself, those are the best Emmure albums imo and there'd be more for you to dig into there I think lol.
    June 26 05:40 PM
  • SteakByrnes Caviar is a good one for sure! and nice dude I'm hype to read your thoughts haha, I'll probably jam it later today after work so I can soak it up better lol
    June 26 03:06 PM
  • SteakByrnes The s/t gets overlooked far too much man, glad to hear that it's growin on ya! Kurt sounds amazing and offers up some killer vocal runs and melodies, and it has Uneasy Hearts which is their second best song imo. The guitar work on that album slaps so much ass
    June 26 02:08 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea man, the only ones that come close to Happiness are DBM2, the s/t, and IG for me. Still, Happiness is so far above them for me haha, but they don't have any bad releases imo
    June 26 02:04 PM
  • SteakByrnes Lol I still dig Afterburner, all it's done for me is get better over time really. Happiness is still their peak for sure, gotta love the homie Kurt
    June 26 01:26 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea I'm looking forward to it! Gonna jam it in a bit, been jammin DGD this morning lol
    June 26 01:14 PM
  • SteakByrnes Oh yea I was gonna jam it no matter what lol, Emmure has always been a band I had fun with. Saw them live like 6 or 7 times from 2013-2016
    June 26 12:56 PM
  • SteakByrnes Oh yea I forgot it came out lol, gotta jam it! Hoping it has some solid stuff on it, doubt it'll be as a good as the last album unfortunately lol
    June 26 12:46 PM
  • SteakByrnes Oh yea man do it up, I've been kinda in the middle on these new singles but they haven't been bad lol. Hoping the album has some good melodic gems like usual
    June 24 08:54 PM
  • SteakByrnes I'm super pumped for it haha, gonna go hiking, swimming, all that jazz. And ooo nice dude, I'll be checkin the reviews for sure man! I never got into Mushroomhead but some of my friends in high school dug them hard
    June 24 08:23 PM
  • SteakByrnes yea it'll be a great time I'm super looking forward to it! We're gonna be in a cabin on a lake lol it'll be nice. And nice dude pump out those reviews! What albums ya thinking?
    June 24 08:19 PM
  • SteakByrnes And yea I've been jamming a lot lol
    June 24 08:12 PM
  • SteakByrnes Dude nice! Gotta be nice to get on a vacation man, and that's exciting man only like two weeks! I'm going on a short trip with my gf next month man I'm stoked
    June 24 08:11 PM
  • SteakByrnes Damn lmao I keep just not checking it out, I'll hop on it eventually mark my words. And I'm good man, just jamming a lot of stuff and playing FF7 Remake when I can lol. How are ya boyo?
    June 24 08:05 PM
  • SteakByrnes Hell yea brother it's such a damn good album! They have a new album coming out this year but I don't have high hopes for it lol, the album after Ground Culture is just solid and the singles they've been releasing aren't that great
    June 22 04:59 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea man it goes so hard, some of the best guitar work of modern metalcore for sure!
    June 21 05:58 PM
  • SteakByrnes Bro I just checked to see if you had Kingdom of Giants rated and you do not, so you need to check Ground Culture ASAP my guy
    June 21 12:19 AM
  • SowingSeason I have a rec for you if you care to check the new Thomas Azier (Love, Disorderly). It's in my AOTY running and I'm trying to get it some more attention. Not typically my/your style but amazing.
    June 20 12:22 PM
  • SteakByrnes Same feeling here haha, breaking that solid three album 4.5 streak wasn't easy
    June 19 07:40 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea man lol, I wanted some sweet riffage like on Uncharted but nothing really came close to it. Overall I'd say it's like a 3.7-3.8 and Worlds Apart is like a 4.6-4.7 lol
    June 19 07:36 PM
  • SteakByrnes The closer was a perfect song tbh, guitar work was stupid good on it and Sean sounded amazing lol. Whole album needed some nasty riffs and grooves
    June 19 07:26 PM
  • SteakByrnes idk man lol, they might've tried too hard to make a good sequel to Worlds Apart sonically
    June 19 07:23 PM
  • SteakByrnes For sure, her choruses just feel very forced on this one which just brings it down unfortunately. Almost like they were making some songs and thought "wait this doesn't have a chorus, let's put one in" instead of it being there organically
    June 19 07:20 PM
  • SteakByrnes Honestly agreed lol, Booka has some shining moments on Worlds Apart but she works better on the new album as like an atmospheric background voice
    June 19 07:17 PM
  • SteakByrnes True those are by far the best tracks lol. At least Sean still sounds like a monster
    June 19 07:14 PM
  • SteakByrnes Idk why they picked those singles man lmao they were such a bad representation. Then again, a lot of the songs would be a bad representation since the album is overly varied. I still dig it tho, just wish they could've been a little more cohesive
    June 19 07:11 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea true, Bones and Drown With Me are definitely the worst offenders of that. Honestly those two tracks bring the momentum to a screeching halt, and Erase Me doesn't really pick it back up too well. Just that stretch of songs is a shame
    June 19 07:07 PM
  • SteakByrnes I wouldn't say it's pretentious, maybe that they're trying too hard to have variety lol
    June 19 06:58 PM
  • SteakByrnes True lol that must've been a busy time, that's good that you have more down time tho! crank out some jams and a few reviews haha
    June 19 01:09 PM
  • SteakByrnes Oh word that'd be dope, feels like it's been a while since your last review haha
    June 19 01:02 PM
  • SteakByrnes I like it a good bit so far! Maybe I've grown to like this style more lol
    June 18 02:42 PM
  • SteakByrnes Niiiice glad to hear it, I'm hype to jam it later! I'm jamming new Phoebe Bridgers rn lol
    June 18 02:40 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea man no problem lol, might jam that later today then
    June 18 01:58 PM
  • SteakByrnes So apparently Phoebe Bridgers released her new album early so it's out now lol
    June 18 01:50 PM
  • SteakByrnes That's fair! I was thinking about it and I really don't have any albums I'm anticipating other than new Misery Signals in August lol, unless I'm forgetting something
    June 18 01:40 PM
  • SteakByrnes Do it up man! I jammed that song Kyoto by Phoebe Bridgers and it was decent enough so I might check the new album when it's out lol
    June 18 01:37 PM
  • SteakByrnes Not sure if I got anything new I wanna jam today lol but we'll see, I've been pretty sporadic with what I jam lately lol. Got Crystal Lake up next after I jam latest Loathe again, then I'll see what I'm in the mood for lol how about yourself?
    June 18 01:30 PM
  • SteakByrnes I initially had it at a 4.5 after my first few listens and then dropped it to a 4 after a while of not going back to it, but I've been jamming it again recently and remembered why I had it at a 4.5 in the first place lol. Absolutely love the vocal performance on the whole thing
    June 18 01:27 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea agreed, the newest one is my favorite for sure but they're all damn good. Might raise the newest one back up to 4.5 tbh lol
    June 18 01:24 PM
  • SteakByrnes Really digging Loathe's debut man! The EP was solid stuff too, def gonna have to jam them a bunch more
    June 18 12:40 PM
  • SteakByrnes Word lol I'll add it to my list, might jam it tomorrow if I remember!
    June 17 09:01 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea Marc is still a riff machine, he's def stripped some of it back but he still goes hard. And yea Brandon was such a dope vocalist, I loved his lows lol he was amazing live too
    June 17 03:26 PM
  • SteakByrnes Yea it does lol, every song on it is riff city
    June 17 03:18 PM
  • SteakByrnes Unbreakable goes so hard bro, incredible way to open the album. Hope you dig brother
    June 17 12:33 PM
  • SteakByrnes I think that's what I have CMC at too lol, id and Eclipse are both better imo. There are some moments on both that just blow my mind
    June 17 12:27 PM
  • SteakByrnes Lmao yea man they were much more unique back then, just some groove machines. Wait until id bro that album smacks so hard, got some wild stuff on that
    June 17 12:23 PM
  • SteakByrnes Nice dude, gotta have those types of albums for sure!
    June 16 09:21 PM
  • SteakByrnes Lol nice man, I remember that not being my thing when I checked it out but I've been meaning to give her and Julien Baker another shot to see if my opinion changed at all
    June 16 08:26 PM
  • SteakByrnes Worrrd I'll peep those and add it to my list, I've been jumping from album to album lol just jammin so much stuff lately haha
    June 16 08:23 PM
  • SteakByrnes I've actually never jammed their debut tbh lmao. And yea I've been really digging a few albums lately. That Macaroom album, FACT's s/t album, and Illuminate by SHADOWS have been heavy in my rotation
    June 16 08:12 PM
  • SteakByrnes Oh damn really lol yea go through their stuff. The run from CMC to Eclipse is stellar stuff
