I listened to some of their stuff a few years ago after hearing their less than good cover of Bon Jovi's "You Give Love a Bad Name". I don't know, they just didn't strike me as anything special, nothing to separate themselves from the hordes of screaming whiner bands.
See that right there tells me that I won't even have to listen to them first to find out of I like them. :lol: Metal/Screamo has never done anything for me besides instantly shift my musical pendulum back to Enya.
atreyu is pretty good. ive seen them live and they put on a good show. theyre a very talented metal band but as said before if you dont like screaming vocals i would stay away. If youre looking for a good song i would reccomend bleeding mascera or ex's and oh's.
I like 'em. They seem more celebratory than most Screamo bands. I dunno how to explain that, it could just be my own interpretation. But yeah, I cant say I'll turn the radio off when they come on, and I've caught myself with a few of their songs stuck in my head.
Yet oddly enough I've sat over and over with my finger on the buy button with "Lead Sails Paper Anchor" in my itunes shopping cart and yet I just cant seem to work up enough confidence to actually buy it. I dunno maybe if I had more initiative like a sale or something I'd buy it.
