I am not sure what the Acacia Strain has to do with any of this other than Emmure ripping off and stealing every Acacia Strain guitar riff, because Emmure is unable to be original themselves.
Down the road, there will be a bigger (and hopefully better) band that comes along and puts Emmure in their place. One can only hope they get theirs and knocked off this high horse they seemed to have been riding just because Victory and Brummel put them in his bread winning basket and they have Kurt Angle on the cover of their album. That does not make them tough or good by any stretch.
i mentioned TAS cuz everyone says Emmure ripped em off like it's blasphemy if bands sound alike. they are both good bands but i prefer Emmure, even if Kurt Angle is on the cover
their music is fun & simple
i'm pretty sure Emmure will see the light when tony fucks them over
i hope he doesn't though
soon there won't be any bands on victory
