This is going to seem like complete trolling, but this band is honestly great. When I first heard them I thought it was trash but after seeing the video for C'est pas si loin I was hooked. I got the CD and was pleasantly surprised. It's much more of a Blood Brothers meets pop with less screaming than what one would expect. The "Bear" has an excellent voice.

I really hope that people check out there last CD, it's easy to write off but it's very fresh and ungeneric.
Does seem like trolling.

Haha, yeah no one likes this genre here it seems. If this were a heavy band I would totally understand the hate. The thing with this band is that they're more of a popish experimental band with light screams that don't take the center stage. I don't think there are any breakdowns to speak of. The songs "C'est pas si loin", "Ocean Floor", "Alley" are all good IMO. I recommend at least giving it a casual listen. It's far from a technical masterpiece but they have a definite charm that works. At least, you should see that people are overstating their badness.

It's just that even if you think this experimental pop/ metalcore/ whatevercore sound is done well by these guys, it's just a terrible sound to begin with. In my opinion anyway.

Throwing in my two cents, this is hard to stomach, no pun intended.

Who gave this band funds to make sweatpants, let alone release music?

To be honest with you I don't even care what the music sounds like. I don't think I could ever support a band that feels like they need to wear masks to make music

Normally I'd agree but I think they chose a simple idea and it works.

These guys embrace the hate. I've heard of them for a bit now, and I'm happy that they got big. The Bunny is such a talented dude, he's had whole idea for this band, the image, and the music and just made it happen for him and his bandmates. I'm not big on the sound, but there are a couple of tracks by them that I love like C'est pas si loin and Path. I'm glad he's got it in him to write another album so quickly, I'll definitely check it out.

I think the contrast between the bunny and the bear's vocals is what makes them awesome. When I first heard them I hated it to, but then I fell in love with the bears voice. it's so unique and I think that makes them better than a lot of other bands. As far as the mask thing, lots of good bands wear masks. Fuck, my favorite band is slipknot, they rock out in masks. Hollywood undead is pretty good too. It's called creativity. not every band is for every listener thats what it comes down to really
