I cant fcking believe this shit. This band has never toured....literally never, Tom Morris fcking walked around handing thier CDs out to Victory, Metal Blade, and another big shit. Can't wait to see how far they go. fckING HILLARIOUS.

This is not screamo, it is metalcore. Where you you been though? Metalblade has had AILD and Winter Solstice on board for quite some time. A few more clean vocals here is what separates this band from those, but similar style nonetheless.

I remember when Jeremy and Ahmed were in the band Calm. Same guys? who knows. Cool dudes.

LordofChaos 1/12/2006 11:21:41 PM

I guarantee somebody in this so-called "band" took one for the team, shit, maybe even two!

Ohhhhh 1/12/2006 11:27:51 PM

All the metal/hardcore bands they sign sound similar for the most part.

"screamo/metalcore on metal blade...i smell the end of the world" Metal Blade was home to the Goo Goo Dolls...just saying...

Document_GraceBudd 1/13/2006 9:36:14 AM

horrorcosmic, The Calm and Pheonix Mourning are pretty much the same dudes.

xtroyx 1/13/2006 11:56:18 AM

surprise surprise. i don't even have to listen to this to know it sucks. with each new signing i lose more and more respect for metalblade.

supercilious 1/13/2006 12:31:49 PM

metalblade sucks period.

phobophile 1/13/2006 2:34:16 PM

i guess the big labels are raking in dough these days, there has definitely been an increase in the signing of complete shit bands. sad.

lifeXinXaXbox 1/13/2006 2:39:45 PM

ClipTheApex 1/14/2006 1:15:04 PM

I don't understand the direction Metal Blade is going in. I'm annoyed by the signing of these overall mediocre acts. How many times have you heard that riff?

darkexhorror 1/15/2006 5:06:08 AM

metalcore blade. *yawns*
