Victims of The Acacia Strain
 
Watch a lyric video for a new The Acacia Strain song entitled "Victims of the Cave" in the replies. Spoiler alert: it's heavy.

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.

I can't back Emmure, but I will say that The Acacia Strain used to be a whole lot more interesting

You seriously prefer the dude from Emmure's awful fake scream to Vince?

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

xxdeadawakexx 09/06/12 06:49 PM

i never really understood all the hype around this band. Song is extremely boring and awful

I do too, there's no competition. Frankie's voice has some more enhancement but it's faaaaaaaaarrrrrr more engaging and all around interesting to listen to. His lines are much more varied and actually seem more threatening while Vince is a very monotonous and one tone singer. I don't think he varies his pitch once on the last two albums.

NewAgeofHorus 09/06/12 07:41 PM

I like their more "hardcore" influenced stuff. Their newest stuff is just more metal influenced.

But the lyrics in this song...ugh

"the sun without the eye. The world is filled with demons, the eye sees everything"

Why is Vincent talking about the eye of providence?!

Emmure might as well be Limp Bizkit and that dude's voice is awful. I can't wait his vocal cords are destroyed to the point that he can no longer continue churning out such terrible music.

Simulcast 09/06/12 07:51 PM

This alright. Nothing after The Dead Walk has ever grabbed me though.

Capulet 09/06/12 08:14 PM

that was awsome, great lyrics

iAMhollyood315 09/06/12 08:19 PM

this is heavy. I like more riffage than chugging but hey i'll judge the record as a whole when i get it.

Wow

ZachMadeMeOdd 09/06/12 08:43 PM

Band still sticks to what they do best, honestly a better track than the entire last album. And there is no reason to be discussing emmure in a TAS thread.

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.

BloodsuckerPtII 09/06/12 10:01 PM

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

xBranx 09/06/12 10:12 PM

"you guys, you're both just awful"

Brandon Allin 09/06/12 10:19 PM

Emmure lol

So do I.

ChaseTx 09/06/12 10:43 PM

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

more heart 09/06/12 11:05 PM

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

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

TheRealJohnOC 09/06/12 11:18 PM

Oh this fucking thread!

donwagenblast 09/07/12 12:00 AM

Not a fan.

PIG DESTROYER 09/07/12 03:02 AM

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.

trevorshmevor 09/07/12 04:03 AM

Spoiler alert
both bands suck.

Jaimehere 09/07/12 04:21 AM

One of those bands that I am HAPPY that never change.

thedaywedied 09/07/12 05:23 AM

Not as stoked on this as I was the first song they released, but I'm looking forward to this album as a whole.

ramomcferno 09/07/12 09:48 AM

Solid tune. Should be another good album.

atssawriiight! 09/07/12 09:52 AM

this band's been losing it since after "the dead walk"

life is very long and 3750 are TAS's best albums.

everything after that is the most boring shit ever.

eclown14 09/07/12 03:07 PM

Continent is one of there best albums and wormwood was pretty good as well this song shows more of there hardcore side and people plz stp comparing acacia to emmure it gets old. Acacia will always be one of my favorite bands out there

theacaciashit 09/07/12 11:22 PM

Dead walk or bust...

Krs-One 09/08/12 12:00 AM

this is crazy and fucking awesome

what's the meaning of life anyway?

escapeartist19 09/09/12 10:07 PM

Fucking awesome! I don't know why there are so many haters, "Wormwood" is the best album by TAS, already pre-ordered! Stoked!
