Yeah, but you love anything Rise and/or this genre, so it's kind of a moot opinion, no offense.
Not at all true. My favorite bands are more technical and/or melodic. I just don't have a stick up my ass like many APers and have a great tolerance for generic bands than most but I don't blindly like every "Risecore" band. Even so, I can think of two friends who have a lower tolerance for generic metalcore that enjoyed this album for what it is; a fun, well produced heavy summer album that is perfect for workouts.
