A five piece Christian metalcore band from Augusta, Georgia.

How Is It

Not bad, and even though I say this in a lot of reviews, it's nothing you haven't heard before. After starting off the EP with a creepy intro, complete with exorcism, this band follows the formula that I've talked about in almost every one of my reviews. The vocals on With The Voice Of An Archangel are decent. Cody Landrum does a good job of laying down the growled vocals, but the clean vocals are what drags this EP down. The bottom line is, they don't sound good. Maybe they should try and follow another metalcore trend and use a vocorder; it would probably turn out better for them. They also follows the popular metalcore trend with adding a keyboardist. He really doesn't do anything special that is worth noting. It seems that almost every keyboardist does the same thing. They play an intro at the beginning of a song, and somewhere in the song, they have a spot to show off and show us what they can do and that's what we get with Seladora's keyboardist Carlin Thompson. Despite the weak vocals, the drummer, keyboardist, and guitarists sync well together to make Seladora a decent sounding band. There really aren't any outstanding tracks on the EP as every song on it sounds the same. Again, they follow the same metalcore formula: sing, scream, breakdown, repeat. This album seemed to be all over the place; it just didn't mix well at all. So if you're a big fan of generic metalcore, check out Seladora. After writing another metalcore review, I still have the same question: who will save the metalcore genre?

I actually messaged them saying "Every single one of my friends has deleted because of how annoying you are."

So not only do they suck, but they're pushing away any potential fans.
