Great song. Sorry to hear about their friend. Saw them this summer in Bakersfield and they had a great performance.

I get what you're saying, but take my word for it, emmure is a band of douchecakes. Even read the lyrical content, their supreme being vocalist writes about girls sucking dick and drugs. Not what heavy music stands for. And they overall are just plain terrible.

The Volumes ep has some great riffs and these guys show off some meshuggah influence here and there which isn't bad. A bit redundant after a while though.

I haven't had a real chance to decide if I like Volumes or not, but I agree Emmure just comes off as assholes.

I don't particularly like Emmure's music, but what really turns me off to the band is their image, and from what I've seen, Volumes doesn't share that same image (I could be wrong though)

As a fan of both Emmure (guilty guilty pleasure) and Volumes maybe I can help illuminate. People here don't like Emmure because their vocalist is often outspoken, blunt, and vulgar. He has no qualms ripping on cheap women and bashing those who have cheated on him and such. Added to that, that their musical structure is often fairly simple and you have a combo that is not going to go well over here. What annoys me is how people will shame Emmure but then praise all these rappers who say and do things along the same lines (almost always worse though). Very hypocritical IMO.

Volumes is definitely a more technical band (especially the LP). Like ZMMO said above, they have that Meshuggah influence that is well respected - "djent". That style is supposed to be very deliberate, repetitive to a building point which a lot of people like. It can be repetitive sounding but as an album experience it usually works out pretty neat.

Hopefully djent will die soon enough. The top string on 8-string guitars are stoked.
