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.
