AMAZING band, before the new album. Nocturne was freaking awesome, fun to play and very non-generic guitar work. The new album is horrible IMO. I think AJ left or something?

nocturne is one of my favourite albums ever, and im generally not a fan of that sort of music.

Yeah either AJ or dean or both left cos they said they weren't comfortable playing heavy music anymore. Disappointed by the new album

New album was ****, but the old one was amazing. Polaris and Vela were my favourites

Are you kidding me? Midheaven I can understand but Nocturne... That album is simply amazing. It's alot of guitar wank, but it's GOOD guitar wank.

Sorry Will, but...

It's the same sweeps and arps over and over again over terrrrrrrible Avenged Sevenfold vocals.

That sounds NOTHING like BTBAM :p:

Yeah, I'll give you the "same sweeps" part, but the vocals sound nothing like A7X. And the vocals are my least favorite part of the music anyway.

Haha, the singing vocals just sound so atonal and terrible. I'm telling you, A7X. Also, they play in C#, and they got Jamie King to do all of their production / mastering / etc. BTBAM rip-offs!

MustangMan, what bands do you like? :p:

Haha, well, let's see... I usually spin:

Between the Buried and Me
The Dillinger Escape Plan
The Number 12 Looks Like You
Advent
He is Legend
The Acacia Strain
Wu-Tang Clan
Common
The Faceless

To a lesser extent, I'd say:

Born of Osiris
After the Burial
Despised Icon
Trap Them
Snoop Dogg
Notorious BIG
Protest the Hero

And that's about it. Haha.

^I want to know too.

Am I the only one who liked Midheaven? I hated the guitar tone, but I thought it was a decent album. Nocturne was a beast.

I thought midheaven was decent but it was just such a let down after making an album like nocturne.

Yeah, if Midheaven was released by any other band- with a better guitar tone- i'd think it was an all right album. I just don't like it because it was such a disappointment after Nocturne.

That sounds like a generic comment for someone who's never seriously listened to The Human Abstract.
