Well I personally can't wait for Madina's full-length to come out. Their EP is great. I'm sure they're generic "emo" to a lot of people, but I enjoyed them in their previous incarnation as The Blank Theory, and I like the guys voice.
It's a shame GCH went to shit with their new album because TPC was awesome. I find it interesting that Travis ranted about shitty mainstream hip hop when I saw them live but now their music sounds like just that... check that, a combination of shitty mainstream hip-hop and Fall Out Boy. What the hell happened?
Yes I have; I'm a music director at a college radio station and listen to everything I get sent, including their album. And guess what it said in bold print on the onesheet I got for the album?
"For fans of: My Chemical Romance, Aiden, Avenged Sevenfold"
Have you heard the entire album? I'm interested on impressions. I don't think they have a similar style to those bands, but maybe thats just what they get categorized as? I've heard them compared to another band that made more sense but I can't remember what it was now.
