I fucks wit Princeton Ave

furthermore, Chronic Future and Zebrahead were the best Nu Metal Bands to Grace the Genre

Both Woe and Issues suck. If I had to choose between the two, I'd choose Issues, but I'd ask for a knife so I could stab myself in the ears shortly afterwards.

Lyrics aside, new Woe, Is Me songs are way more catchier and flows better in-between the singing/screaming.

I'm disappointed. King Of Amarillo is probably the best song on the EP, the other tunes are enjoyable but a bit boring. The intro is terrible.

The song without Michael is my favorite. He's lost something since they recorded Number[s].

Deftones = alternative metal :rolleyes:

guess these clowns couldn't live up to all that hype
good thing they're out of W,IM so W,IM can continue to be stronger & better

This is nu-metal.

i remember reading an interview where Chino stated that BACK TO SCHOOL (MINI MAGGIT) was not initially on the album and that to cater to the recent explosion of nu-metal popularity,their label had them go back into the studio and add this song to White Pony,according to the current nu-metal style. They were largely against it,but folded regardless. Although i still to this day love this song,it is not representative of their style at all. i would look up the interview,but im too lazy right now lol

Alright just finished listening... First off, I wanna start off by saying that I don't even listen to this type of music anymore. I've been a fan of screamo on and off since I got into the (let's call it) "scene" 13 years ago... screamo hasn't been an interest of mine for quite a few years now. I checked out Issues initially because of all the drama surrounding them... I can completely understand all the people who are still into this kind of music saying stuff like it doesn't live up to the hype or that it's wasted talent (love, sex, riot does sound like a nu metal song)... but to a (at this point) outsider to the genre, I thoroughly enjoy this EP. It mixes different influences (good enough) that it actually keeps me entertained in a genre that I normally think is currently stale.


Your opinion is invalid since you refer to this type of music as screamo.

I know exactly what screamo was originally, and that this type of music has falsely took over the name due to ignorance... I was simply referring to it that way because that's how the kids on this site talk... shut the fuck up and don't critrque me on what lamens terms I decide on using

Although I see where you're coming from, nobody really says screamo anymore. :\

I feel like they're really trying to fuel this beef between Woe, Is Me and Issues for publicity.

Yes they do, being that Screamo is an actual genre of music.

Yeah I guess not, but I really don't care enough about this genre to take the time to figure out what to correctly call it... I only get picky about labels when it comes to music I care more about.

While I didn't expect a whole, whole lot from this EP, but the lyrics are absolutely cringe-worthy. Also, I could just see them in the studio thinking they were redefining music while all listening to that whack ass intro.

damn i think i had one of their songs on a 2003 sampler (i think it was called "self medicate" or something, i still have the chorus stuck in my head), were their full lenghts decent for the genre ?
