Woe is Me really need to break away from this genre. Their singer is one of the best out there and they restrict themselves to making the same cookie cutter music as every other Rise band.
I'm hoping their screamer quits and they progress musically as Emarosa and DGD did, one of the few Rise bands I think has some actual potential to make more than this bullshit Rise music shit.

Attack Attack! 2.0?
They sound like AA without synth, so i think that's technically a downgrade, though its hard to tell. Really depends on which piece of shit you think smells worse.

This sort of depresses me that I'm from around Columbus. They have changed their sound to move along with the trendy genre's over the past 2-3 years. Attack Attack! got big so they did stuff like AA! now bands are taking after For The Fallen Dreams, so a big surprise that they sound similar now. Rise needs to start signing more bands with talent, not 20 bands that you can tell little difference between.

Exactly. They're making some good money now with AA!, you think they'd sign some bands with actual talent. But for every PM Today or Tides of Man Rise has they have at least five shitty bands like this that sound the same, and most of them are just opening support on tours for a few years until they break up because they don't stand out at all from anyone other band out there.

i agree with all of the above comments. although most of the bands do sound alike, i really like this guys clean vocals. they have some neat sounding parts in their songs. id still say their cookie cutter, but theyre a step above some of the other bands i feel like. their cookie cutter is the one with all the neat shapes ha.
I honestly can't tell their vocalist apart at all, they sound musically and vocally identical to attack attack, they just don't use synth.

either way... lets say Rise signs bands everyone on this site likes (in fact they just signed two of those, though i have no idea when they will announce it.)

you'll just complain and ask WHY?!?!


Rise runs a respectable label, despite the quality of some of their bands. they have a great distribution, push most of their bands, and help get them on some pretty respectable tours.
Why would we complain that they signed a good band? That's when we'll be happy that a good band is getting label support. No on here is saying Rise is a bad label, they do a great job promoting bands for the most part, it just gets old when they sign the same band over and over when there are other great bands they are passing up. Signing bands like these lowers the popular opinion of an otherwise fine label like Rise.

If you sat all the rise bands in one room and had them listen to five random songs by themselves, they would not know who's was who's.

Yes, because pmtoday, This Is Hell, Emarosa, Dance Gavin Dance, Piebald, In Fear & Faith, Tides Of Men, Mswhite, Miss May I and Oceana sound EXACTLY the same...

American Me, Attack Attack, Miss May I, My Ticket Home, The Plot in You, Before Their Eyes, The Color Morale, The Devil Wears Prada, Ten After Two, For the Fallen Dreams, In Fear and Faith, Of Mice and Men, Legend, Scarlett O'hara, Woe is Me, Abandon All Ships, Sleeping With Sirens, Those Who Lie Beneath and Ms. White might be a little confused though. Especially more so with just instrumental songs. A lot of these bands sound similar in a way, some more so than others.

Axe TDWP off that list. They're not on Rise anymore. Just saying. Other than that....point taken.
List I say said they have joint distribution with Ferret so I counted it. Either way.

They sound like AA! because they recorded with Caleb.
Why would recording with someone change your entire style to sound exactly like Attack attack? They sound like them because they lack originality and think it would help them get signed, which worked I guess.

Who is they in that sentence? I definitely like I am Abomination's EP more than Woe Is Me's album, but I think their full length wasn't as good. Know what I mean?

IAA. Not your generic band.
Woahh, hostile. I prefer IAA, I just think they're full length didn't have too many stand out songs.
