Hmmm, I've been trying to get into this band for a few years now. I just don't understand the hype. They're not bad by any means, it just doesn't stand out to me. There's some interesting riffage, going on in there...but from what I can see that looks pretty standard for them, and not that exciting. Also the vocals are pretty grating.

Not sure what to think, might check them out at Warped. Might not.

Literally laughed aloud when I saw Jake playing the cowbell. Ridiculous. As was the whole video.

go record some songs with a band, then we can talk about how creative you can get.
ridiculous.
I can't tell what you're implying here. I was being sarcastic with my earlier post. August Burns Red are arguably the most creative and technical band in metalcore, and I've loved everything they've put out.

For the record, I have recorded songs with a band. Several times spanning many years.

When the fuck did August Burns Red turn into Parkway Drive? *meaning ABR sounds exactly the same as Parkway Drive now*

I think he was bashing the first guy for saying that their songs sound the same nowadays.

They are not creative or that technical at all compared to other bands (atleast not in the guitar and bass aspect). Throwing in a salsa part in one song doesnt make them creative. Bands like BTBAM, After The Burial and Protest The Hero blows them out of the water in making technical and creative "nu-metalcore".

I used to like them before but they are practically taking parts from older songs and putting them in new songs. For example 2.00 in up against the ropes and the intro to empire, the breakdown @ 2.05 in back burner and the breakdown @ 0.20 in internal cannon.

Sorry, I'll never listen to anyone who says JB and Brent aren't creative or technical guitarists.

Don't even get me started on Protest the Hero. Never seen a band morph their sound more to fit what's in.

I like the idea, and the video wasn't awful. But it just seems kind of awkward.
After the video for "Meddler", not much else can stack up.

I can definitely hear what you're referring to with the similarities in parts. That being said, metalcore is so narrow, I can see why it would be easy to write the same part twice without realizing it.
