Haven't to it yet but I just can bring myself to love these guys. I bought both of their prior releases based on the good things I had heard about them but for some reason none of the songs really stick with me. I hate to rehash what's been said but they really do sound like another August Burns Red. ABR is one of those bands where they fill the void perfectly for their type of music so having a "ABR lite" just doesn't do anything for me.

They're both from Lancaster. Roughly twenty minutes away from each other. TIJ have been playing and seeing ABR since they were 14. They're all straight out of high school. Give them a few years to at least mature a little. ABR has been able to do that because they've gone through two or three different vocalists and only have two original members left.

I will. They have the chops for sure I just haven't heard anything that I've loved. However, ABR has been the same band since 2006 and despite having 3 different vocalists I think it was their current that made them who they are and become popular. But the actual band has been the same since 2003 (minus a bass player change in 2006).

Generic, but not inherently bad. Older stuff was more skilled in guitar work.

This very much.
First album was quite technical, loved the arpeggios, sweeps & awesome speedy riffs, this is just chugging with a occasionally octave for me. Too bad.

these guys bring absolutely nothing new to the table, and way too many bands do it better than them
