Don't know what it is, but I played that album frequently for months
It got old very quickly for me.

I feel like they didn't really try to make a solid cover. Kids are gonna love it regardless of what they do.

I still listen to it. New cd might not be quite as generic i'm thinking they'll mature more like most younger bands do.

I feel like they're either make another 12 songs that sound the exact same as the 12 on their debut, or they'll try to switch it up a bit, but they'll probably just be ripping off different bands. I can't see an ounce of originality in this band.

Like continuing to rip off Bring Me The Horizon?

And Attack Attack, A Day To Remember, The Devil Wears Prada, Alesana, and whoever else makes the same breakdowns as them over and over.

True originality is hard to come by anymore my friend. I cut slack on that sorta thing as long as their sound is progressively identifiable for them. I mean they're less mediocre than Attack Attack! so that's already a start lol and the only other successful trance-post-hardcore band is Enter Shikari and they've changed a lot so it's hard to say they would sound directly like any other band. Only downside is they wrapped it up with Sturgis again..and we all know how that goes. So mixed feelings really, time
will tell.

I wouldn't really classify them as trance or posthardcore, their sound is just a combination of different bands around them, such as the ones I listed above. I don't really consider them to have a distinct sound because they just combine elements of other bands who have an arguably distinct sound. They are just one of the many bands who somewhat have a style that is not at all original, and quickly get signed and make an album that sounds entirely the same throughout and very familiar if you have listened to other bands they tried to sound like. Saying they're betterthan Attack attack isn't saying much, especially in a musical sense, and they definitely don't have enough technical skill to stand out to listeners in any other way but having many gimmicks, which they seem to do well.

It got old before I was done with the first listen... and admittedly I generally like some of this stuff just for the fun side, but idk this band... whatever. You're right though, scene kids still eating it up.

Also it's annoying how they like try to be controversial. The singer (Dan? Danny? something) is always all like, "Oh, I party and I'm a addicted to sex and alcohol and get shit drunk all the time," and makes a whole stupid spectacle of it. And then they're always calling people whores and cunts onstage and curse excessively just because. Then going on yelling about STDs and having a required minimum amount of bras to be onstage before you start your next song... when most of your fanbase is underage... all filed under "Trying Way Too Hard."
Didn't know they were disgusting people on stage as well, only saw them once when no one cared about them and didn't notice anything like that.
