Whoa whoa, now lets not say things we can't take back!
I enjoy FBTMOF and Converge as much as the next guy, but to say those are capable of topping Colors? Thats a bold statement. Colors is one of the most original releases in metal of the last few years.
I DO think however, that Ire Works has the best shot of catching up to BTBAM, although I don't think it'll quite beat it. I'm sure both are gonna be in my top 10 though at the end of the year.
And I still have cds from A Wilhelm Scream and Protest the Hero to obtain soon!
Converge consistently puts out amazing albums, and their next album, whenever it comes out, probably wont be much different. I think they are very capable of doing an album better than Colors, seeing as they already have with Jane Doe in 2001.
Fear Before is capable as well. The Always Open Mouth made them one of my favorite bands, and I already think that album and Colors are on the same level. If they build on what they started on The Always Open Mouth, I believe their new album can easily top everything else in the scene.
Isis is also as good as converge in the sense that they've never released a bad record. their new stuff should be amazing, i dont expect any less.
Colors is an amazing record though, so dont take this as me bashing BTBAM. they are one of my favorite bands.
Ire Works should be incredible, I think dillinger knows what they are doing, and if the rest of the record is as good as this song, we should be in for a treat.
