I guess this is the thread to discuss the new He Is Legend record, "It Hates You" - which fuckin' kicks rear end. The intro riff on "That's Nasty" is so mean, bordering on drone-ish.

haha, now you're in my domain. scenecore is my specialty. first, check the new The Word Alive EP, Empires out. it kicks a lot of rear end.

Greeley Estates. their latest disk, Go West Young Man... kicks a ton of rear end.

I See Stars. 3D has been described by some as a better version of Attack Attack!. I think they're fairly different, but still worth checking out

In Fear and Faith. it's like attack attack!, but with more structured songwriting and lyrics about pirates. hearing the singer scream PIIIIRATES LIFE FOR ME over a sick breakdown made me a convert.

hell, just look through Rise Records and The Artery Foundation's roster until you find something you like.

Rise Records pretty much suck save for a few bands.

Saw FYS/SYG a couple days ago at the Meridian, they were pretty excellent.

I was wondering, has anybody heard Jonny Craig's (of Emarosa/DGD) solo stuff? http://www.myspace.com/jonnycraig

I recently heard the whole album and it is particularly earpleasuring when you listen to it as an album rather than individual songs. I was going to make a thread for the new album, but there probably wouldn't be enough fans here.

Gonna check this out later - he has an awesome voice and I should probably get Emarosas's new CD.

Just realized today that I hadn't seen this band mentioned yet. I dunno how popular they are, but they've headlined a few tours that came through here recently and their shows are always sick. A lot of their music is really catchy, especially the clean vocals, which is also fun because they do them well without making their music too poppy.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SxJiJ8Ok7Mc (I Am The Wind, You Are The Feather)

They are the weirdest looking people I have ever seen in my life. The lead singer can't be more than 4 feet tall (slight exaggeration, but he is a tiny guy) and they always have the craziest facial hair. Last time I saw them, they all grew out wild mustaches. They're a trip hahaha.

I had only heard one song from their first EP which was absolutely horrible, but then I listened to "Safe to Say" from their latest CD on some sampler, and that is actually a really solid song. I really like that the screamer isn't shrieking like a lot of the other bands in this genre (Sky Eats Airplane, to name one), but goes down in a deeper vocal register (dunno if that's what you wanna call it, but whatever).

Looking for some recommendations anyway. Is there anything else like Every Time I Die around? Big Dirty was awesome. I guess that sort of southern flavour with some good riffs and melodic bits.

Look into He Is Legend's "Suck Out the Poison" or Maylene and the Sons of Disaster's "II" or self-titled.

Also does anyone else love Chiodos? I have a feeling some of you may regard them as "scene wankery" but they are really so much more

I'm very much looking forward to a new Chidos album, though I have no idea whether or not they're even working on one.

I posted about how awesome Maylene and The Sons of Disaster are and nobody replied thanking me for exposing them to an awesome band in the vein of ETID

Seriously people check them out they're awesome groovy southern rock with the occasional metalcore flair

I didn't thank you because I was already agreeing with you . Also, check out Memphis May Fire's debut "Sleepwalking", especially the tracks North Atlantic vs. North Carolina and You're Lucky It's Not 1692. They have a bit of a Southern flavor - not as much as Maylene, but you will probably like 'em. Oh, and you of course know all about "Suck Out the Poison" by He Is Legend, right?

I love seeing them live, they put on a good show, but sitting through those bands is too much for me.

Whaaat? Maylene and the Sons of Disaster are awesome. I can't wait to see some videos on YouTube with Schuylar Croom as the vocalist (Dallas Taylor had to drop off this tour, so the lead singer of He Is Legend is filling in).

Nasam posted:

Those chromatic riffs really make Converge stand out, though, if you ask me. Ballou has this penchant for atonality and dissonance that just make it erupt in my ears. I wouldn't feel as much of an impact otherwise. You're right, though. The riffs do start to get a bit stale on their new album. I wasn't sure if it was just from listening to the band for so much over the past seven years. I do have to disagree about the band part. I think the guests make it sound like the band is even more comfortable and confident than usual. I'd even say this is their most confident album yet.

On another note, I'm never sure what thread Coalesce belongs in, but I'm still obsessed with OX and I really don't think I've found a release this year that can touch it. Converge has the only heavy album that tries to threaten its position for me. (It probably ties it, but I don't want to sound like your typical Converge fanfag. )

Could you explain all this technical mumbo jumbo to a guy who just think the new record is awesome? What should I be listening for?

Nothing, that dude just wants Ballou to "erupt" in his mouth. If you enjoy the record, you enjoy it. Don't look for reasons why.

No no, that's not really what I'm looking for, I just think it's interesting to hear exactly what the musicians are doing to achieve the heaviness and certain "feel" of the record.

I guess this belongs in here as well. Post-hardcore is still hardcore.

How does everyone feel about Four Year Strong? I've been crushing their Rise Or Die Trying album the past few weeks. Probably the catchiest thing I've ever heard. Here's a couple of my favorites:

Abandon Ship or Abandon All Hope - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tHKz86shOWo
(Anchor come and drag me down before I take a dive)

Maniac (R.O.D) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62ryw4Yv_TE
(I've always heard that the good die young! There's little time left to prove them wrong)

I wouldn't say they belong in this thread, because let's face it, it's pop-punk, but gently caress it - still such an awesome record. The intro to Heroes Get Remembered never fails to get me pumped. I think my favorite song is Men are From Mars, Women are From Hell, though. Looking very much forward to their next one, which is titled "Enemies of the World" if I remember correctly.

HORSE the Band will be participating in the next front page Q & A!

If you have something you'd like to ask HORSE the Band, you can post it here, send it to me in a private message, or e-mail it to me at garbageday@somethingawful.com.

Musically, HORSE the Band is a polarizing act in most online metalcore communities, and it seems this one is no exception. However, even people who don't dig keyboard breakdowns can usually respect that these are funny dudes who don't mind laughing at themselves and bantering with their hecklers. They've definitely had some unique adventures, too, most notably booking their own sparingly promoted and largely uncompensated 45-country tour in 2008. Looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with for what should be a great Q & SA!

I read in their bio on MySpace that they didn't like performing in Scandinavia during their world tour - what's up with that?

I heard these guys described as a drunk ETID, and I agree. Pissed off, dirty rock and roll with the occasional solo. A bit simplistic, but take 4 or 5 shots and you'll like it just fine.
