Given the title of August Burns Red copy-cat band since the start, TIJ has proven that they have what it takes to be a band that can stand on its own and not have to rely on such comparisons.

I always considered them heavily influenced by ABR, but not in a bad way, per se. But they could also stand to be a bit more original. Good review, I definitely plan on giving it half a listen at least.

The influence is there, but it's less prevalent than in their previous material. I think we'll see more and more of their originality with future releases.

Yeah, I seem to remember whatever streams I heard weren't AS reeking of ABR as I Am.

The record label informed me that Witkowski did the lyrics and spoken word parts, so I changed that in your review.

Be sure to catch their drummer, Adam, on Jay Leno tonight! http://www.equalvision.com/news/show/648

Thanks! I'll be watching tonight. Good to see that Adam is getting the exposure he deserves.
