Anyway, this song is pretty boring and awful. Continent was the only album by this band that I can actually back.

i mean, it's a matter of different tastes, but i like the diversity in frankie's vocals compared to what i get out of vince's. not arguing he's a better musician, lyricist, or anything like that, but i think he's a more engaging vocalist. i like some songs from the acacia strain, but they've never really hooked me.

This adds on to what I was saying. There's simply no denying that Frankie is a more varied vocalist which has a huge impact for this slice of metalcore. And to the person who complained Emmure is here, the reason we're discussing this is because these bands are often compared I each other.

People legitimately like this stuff, and take it seriously? I feel like I could have written this in high school.

Wow really?! I do believe that absolutely no one brought up the "the dumbass wonder years" so why be so immature and bring it up???
Ps: emmure is pure garbage

first time i've seen positive comments about Emmure here. Hmm.

TAS is still one of the most boring bands in whatever genre they call themselves.

yeah, it was heavy. i still like emmure more. vince's vocals are just too dull for me to want to listen for a whole song/album.

You should listen to Vincent's new band, Shut In.

Oh this fucking thread!

Not a fan.

I'll always be grateful for their first 3 albums- they were SO good.

but the next 2 sucked, and this shows they have absolutely no plans in becoming interesting and unique again. I still don't understand how a band starts with 3 guitarists doing overlapping metal parts and turns into 1 guitarist playing the same boring chug riffs in every song.

give up acacia strain, you're done. emmure is better. and so is shut in based on what I've heard.

Spoiler alert
both bands suck.
