I'm not sure of the relevance between the band's image and the quality of their music. Also, the score does not seem to match the review you wrote. For example, saying you could barely get past the vocals and then scoring them "6.75" seems quite off to me.

And a quick note, this EP was previously self-released by the band earlier in the year and just saw an official release this past Tuesday since they had signed to Mediaskare a few weeks prior.

Yeah, I sort of rushed the scores. Thanks for pointing that out to me. And I wasn't necessarily comparing their image to their music, but rather saying their image was an instant turn-off, which never really sparked back on. Fixed the vocal and a few other scores. I find it amusing that since I rated musicianship high, it makes the review seem so much better.

I love this album. It just pounds really hard. They are one of the fathers of djent. I'm pretty stoked on whatever full length they release in the near future. Album deserves to be in the 70's at least.

the fact that you like Hellogoodbye and disliked this album for the reason of dumb lyrics is wrong on so many levels. sorry. just what i think. this album wasnt amazing by any means but you really over exaggerated how bad it was. the vocals arent as excruciating as you said they were. not a bad cd but Periphery's got em beat. decent album, not so decent review

Ok first of all this is the worst review I have ever read.... Because they dress like rap artist you say? wow your such a ****** sorry they don't have gages and tight pants jeezes I cant believe people these days. Maybe they dont follow ****** trends like yourself and like to dress with something called SWAG and STYLE. They live in LA I would love for you to go to a Club in Hollywood dressed up like a metal head or hardcore kid LOL. wow I seriously can not believe this how old are you? like mid 20's or maybe 30? yea these kids are 17 - 20 and your gettn paid to right about em.Oh and by the way they record all there own material as if that is not mind blowing on its own. Give these kids credit for bringing something fresh to the table the front men are probably some of the 2 best screamers ive heard in a long time and they dont even look like screamers its really refreshing to see the younger generation knows whatsup unlike this ****** who wrote this review!

just wasn't my cup of tea. but thank you for your intelligent remark, and i'm not being sarcastic.

the Hellogoodbye remark was a joke. seeing as the two are totally different styles, the comparison wasn't supposed to be valid. although i like their sound, i know their lyrics were really bad. however, listen to their second album. just sayin. personally, after all of the post-hardcore/metalcore/deathcore i listen to, these guys are certainly towards the bottom of the pile vocal-wise. the lack of range in the screamers' voices was also a contributing factor to the low rating. and is every gazing over the fact that i gave instrumentation a 9.5? lordy. also, that Periphery comment made me laugh. just sayin.

so its the worst review you've ever read because you adore them? and goddamn, the rap comment was simply to show why i wasnt excited to listen to them the first time. that didnt contribute to my score in the slightest. i dont care about the style, that was simply a comment. and hey, bro? i'm 14. i'm not paid, at all. the band i'm in records all their own material. there is nothing fresh about this band to me, as i've heard many others that are similar to them. neither of them are that good of vocalists IN MY OPINION. people like you are the ones who need to stop jumping to conclusions and fully read. seeing as the whole bolded part is all about a one or two sentence comment is ridiculous.

Nope, this is how it goes. The lead screamer's mom is the drummer. She is dating the lead clean vocalist who is the screamer's best friend. This leads to a lot of tension in the band and the mom (who was born in Colombia and has yet to learn correct English) just becomes a fanboy of her own band's music to get through the long weeks.

I still dig the EP it's solid. They're more than likely going to progress.

I just read all the comments and I would have to say jus for example that KevinAIWW has a really cool positive nice way of saying things ansd TupacLIVS might be a little bit harsh but I think hese right over all the review was horrible ok ok he might be a little fan boy but what the fuck good for the band straight up if there really that young of a band good for them. In my full honest oppinion I think there a pretty cool band I'm not the biggest fan in metal but I would'nt call Volumes metal if you ask me I think there something new buttttt thats just me

Best,
Sean B

P.S. sorry for the horrible grammer
