I mean people can call them boring while they are out playing sold out tours,warped, and soundwave. They had rise records highest first week sale for challenger. They know what formula works and you can't hate on them for that. If you think this band is bad go watch them live you won't be let down. Each member is a great musician.
Playing a sold out your does not make you a good band at all, it just means your popular. I find their music boring as it's generic metalcore that's been done a thousand times before.
Have only heard their first EP and Sleepwalker. Really dug the EP because it had a very southern rock influence about it and a different singer. Only really gave Sleepwalker a few spins despite owning it. However, given the current vocalist was awesome live when I saw them a few years ago and the love for Sleepwalker, perhaps I should go back to this album?
Right? Their original style was a nice and welcome difference, but now it's just like most other bands of the scene. Regardless, they're great dudes and I still enjoy watching them live.
I wouldn't care less if they always sounded like this, just like I don't care about Like Moths To Flames, Secrets etc. But it's just frustrating when a band with a good, somewhat original sound changes to this. Oh well.
Everytime there's a new MMF 80% of it is comprised of lamenting their change from the southern sound. Matty (who I believe comes from the Pacific Northwest) has expressed several times how he is uncomfortable with that sound. It's not really in his blood so to speak as with the other members.
Every release from MMF has been excellent, though Challenger got the least plays from me.
haha, i love all the negative comments. matty is a ridiculously amazing vocalist. the guitar players mesh seamlessly, the drums are perfect for the genre of music they fall under....and their 2 most recent records have been amazingly well done. great production, catchy songs, they perform the songs flawlessly live. the video itself may be a bit on the typical/watch it once and thats enough side...but this band is awesome. and im happy to see how popular they have become with these past 2 albums....well, 3 if you include the EP right before those 2 as well.
