first post. decent album. betther than their old garbage for sure.
um,f*ck this. do drugs and listen to the first rush album and wack off w/ the NUGE.
no care ever about shitty f*cking bands. review some good cds.
glas lambgoat decided to give this album a chance and review it, I think it's great
their first album was actually decent but this one just sucked big time. big disappointment here!
quit reviewing this type of shit. no one cares.
they are slowing down now and sound like Isis/Neurosis/Cult Of Luna? damn....that's original....
seriously, does at the gates get mentioned every time a band plays metal? USE A DIFFERENT f*ckING COMPARISON.
cult of neurisis is mentioned at least 7 times an any given magazine, blog, or website. it really is getting irritating. accept the fact that it is a genre already, there are more than 3 bands allowed to populate it.
While there are obvious nods to bands like Cursed, Neurosis, and Swarm of the Lotus, Nights Like These could be compared to a younger version of Knut with some of the commercial sensibilities of Deftones. SHUT THE f*ck UP
"there are a myriad of Isis/Neurosis/Cult of Luna inspired acts out there" and this band is clearly not one of them. Did he even listen to this album? I totally agree on the Cursed/Swarm of the Lotus comparison...throw in a slowed down Cursed and you'd be way more on point. Track 6 is the only track that has a hint of Times Of Grace/Through Silver In Blood/Mosquito Control. Everything else is way more "hardcore" or "metalcore" than current Neurosis/Isis/Cult of Luna.
Oh, but its of slower tempo...must throw in comparisons that everyone can relate to (5 years ago)!
eat shit, i dont have time to keep up with the latest current trend of "expansive doomy" bullshit, so you'll get isis, cult of luna, and neurosis until a band manages to take the genre further than these three bands. i am deeply sorry i used three well known bands to make a point, i should really try harder to pick more obscure comparisons.
good album. suprised the hell out of me after their last hunk of shit release.
if trend "hoping" (im sure your brilliance left out that p on purpose) means sounding like 3 bands...then yes!
i wonder how much victory paid them for this review...
record wasn't half bad, leaps and bounds ahead of the last record. I guess you could call it trend hopping...except they prob. had a larger market to be exposed to when they were metalcore. 1:because sadly metalcore is still going somewhat strong. 2. fans of the genre they are playing now will view them as "trend hoppers" and/or won't even give them the time of day due to the name. there is no more re-inventing the wheel...they play the style decently and the record is listenable....anything el
Being from there home town and watching them grow, this is a dramatic improvement over anything they've released. Yeah they're on a trend f*ck label and yeah they used to play half ass metalcore, but its good to see them finally get in their niche. Plus, who gives a f*ck if they sound like, Isis, or Cult of luna. Personally, I can still hear the orinallity in the music, and if you can't enjoy a band without having to find the similarities to another band (unless its totally obvious) then what i
I think everyone needs to quit being so gay. As it is with ANY music, you either like it or you don't. If you like NLT then great for you, if you don't then shut the f*ck up and don't listen to them, because no one wants to hear your pointless ranting about how much you hate this band. Especially because you couldn't write half as good as they do anyway. In my opinion, I enjoy Nights Like These. I liked The Faithless more than Sunlight At Secondhand due to the fact that it was heavier and
