all right, pn.o did a shit job reviewing this by giving it two stars when it's obviously a pretty good metalcore cd....but a 96%? are you fuckin retarded?
So let me get this straight...

You come here to slobber all over Darren's knob every time he writes a review, and you shit all over everyone else's? Please correct me if I am wrong.

i dont think the vocalist is what has taken them any further, he really doesnt have much different of a sound/range than jesse...i like him more, mainly because he sounds like sean ingram. Id say the songwriting has improved dramatically and they were able to blend melodic/heavy parts a lot better this time out. Good record.

because the way i see it, every year there's probably one or maybe two at most cds deserving of a 95%+...and some metalcore album isn't it

this is one of the better metalcore albums in recent memory (probably since hot damn), but the 96% makes my brain hurt

haha wow you are a moron.

First of all, why does the fact that it is metalcore forfeit it from the running as one of the year's best?

What makes you think Drew does not think it is 1 of those 2 for the year?

Why do you try and argue things like score instead of concrete points discussed during the review?

Grow up.

your quote says it all. the fact you namedrop hot damn! as one of the best metalcore cd's to come out further proves my point.

If you want to call Hot Damn! metalcore (which it probably is) then it is one of the best metalcore cds to come out.

I'm sure you are one of those Botch rip-off loving tards.

I'm always open to new bands.

from a second story window (both their EP and full length trounce anything by misery signals/etid

Leng T'che although most people would consider them grindcore...same family

At the gates-slaughter of the soul

Darkest Hour-pretty much anything

Embrace The End-its a recent release but its infinitely better than anything ETID has done

Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Converge, Breather Resist, Coalesce, Arsis, Blood Has Been Shed, Curl Up And Die, Deadguy etc.

all those bands have put out better albums than ETID have/ever will. I have no problem with people liking them, but to say they have put out one of the best metalcore albums is insanity.

that from a second story window album is trash, my man...talk about a half rate red chord ripoff

converge? metalcore? darkest hour? deadguy? you obviously have no idea what you're talking about

and i said in recent memory (2003, big boy), slaughter of the soul was in the 90s! and no, grindcore is NOT what we are talking about here

you missed the point completely

most of those bands are great but far from what I consider metalcore. At The Gates metalcore? I don't really think so, but yeah, Converge, Coalesce, Deadguy, Curl Up And Die and Breather Resist are all great. I guess it just comes down to what you consider metalcore.
