If Claudio Sanchez was in a generic screamo band, this would be it. Anybody else like?

I discovered A Skylit Drive sometime during the summer and I don't get bored of listening to them like I do with some bands, at the moment Ex Machina is my favourite song

I hate this band. Please don't call them screamo. There are WAY too many bands that sound exactly like this and it pisses me off.

^What are they then? All these bands sound the exact same to me...I can't classify.

I guess they'd fall into metalcore. These bands have always been a mystery to me as far as classification goes. Not screamo though.

Girly metalcore. like Alesana and the like

perhaps....poppunkcore?! dun dun dun.

I used to like them with their other singer. this new guy just sings unnaturally high.

These guys opened for Chiodos last week. They pretty much suck.

^I could see them being really bad live.

They kinda remind me of Paramore with screaming, haha. Oh well, it's pretty catchy.

Their set was pretty horrible, after it was over however their lead singer decided to ruin Chiodos' opening song too. Really wish I hadn't seen these guys.

Wait, what?

Did they really attempt to cover Chiodos on their tour?

Decent at best.

Wouldn't they be considered post-hardcore?
Anyways, I like them. Haven't heard their live stuff though.

Hey Nightmare Where'd You Get Those Teeth is really the only song of theirs that I actually genuinely like. And the rest are meh.

No, their lead singer jumped out while Chiodos were playing their first song and ruined it. If they had tried to cover Chiodos I wouldn't have cared since their set sucked anyways.

They sound kinda like saosin and alesana had a kid to me. I actually liked these guys with their old singer, but the new one is god awful and tries to hard to be like alesana.

Due to the prissy-ness of the singing, it's confirmed that this band are the chosen ones of the "balls are too brutal, k thanks" cult.

Their drumming is awesome, but it is not original.

best lyric, " Breath easy, the doctors are about to arrive~~~~~"

I always thought Alesana tried to hard to be Atreyu with their lyrics...although Alesana's screamer reminds me of Dallas Taylor in Underoath's older years (The Changing Of Times album especially).

I mean seriously:

Underoath with Dallas:

Alesana:

The screaming vocals are extreeeeemely similar. It pains me to see no bands trying something new and just trying to strictly sound like their influences.

But, to get back on topic, A Skylit Drive is alright. Not too original but they still have a pretty good sound.

Can I ask what you like? I've seen you in like three threads and all you've said about the bands is "gay" or "terrible band." It's your opinion, but at least give us a reason

I fell in love with the first album with the old singer, Jag (new singer) I could definitely live without. I don't know what it is about him, his voice just seems to fake, like it's coming from a computer or something.

That is pretty weird...DH sounds nothing like them.

I like ASD, but it takes a while to get used to Jag's voice, much like any oddly pitched singer. All It Takes is their best song imo.

I remember seeing this band when they were just starting out. I liked them because they were local, but yeah every city has a band that sounds exactly like these guys.

jordan was a much better singer than jag is

03-31-2009, 03:15 PM
A Skylit Drive isnt too bad now. I definatly think the band was awesome with Jordan, and I really like the All-Star Diaries, but they arent as good now with Jag. Singers like him are a bit of an acquired taste I think, so they arent for everyone, but I definatly like Coheed and do like A Skylit Drive.

EDIT: I think bands like these, like Underoath and the like, are post-hardcore. THe ones with good singers arent too bad, but i really dont like Alesana myself.

I really can't stand this band.

But, I'm seeing these guys with a couple friends later this month. We're mostly just going for Dance Gavin Dance and maybe to have a little fun moshing. Are these guys any good live?

Hanzi_G
04-03-2009, 10:16 PM

I'm pretty sure they do. Don't quote me on it though.

The vocals are an acquired taste, but I think the screams are unnecessary on some of their songs.

I'm going to see them with Alesana on the last date of the Emptiness tour in Atlanta. Hopefully since it's their last show on the tour it will be good.

Nowadays my friends and I will randomly shout "FIRE RAGES IN ME" from "All It Takes..." during songs :D

Johnny Whitney's voice makes me want to learn how to be a vocalist, just so I can do guest vocals on one of my band's songs, screaming "SHUT, THE, FUCK, UP, WHIT,NEEEEEEEEYYYY"
The "neeeeey" part would be a huge inhale and all would be right in the world.
