Weed is my main influence. That's pretty much it. As far as bands I would say Every Time I Die or Shai Hulud.

This is what I wrote on the myspace for my band:

"Rites of Spring, Moss Icon, Lifetime, Dag Nasty, Ampere, Orchid, Daitro, Gorilla Biscuits, ...Who Calls So Loud, Fall of Efrafa, His Hero Is Gone, Shook Ones, Unbroken, generally music from the 90's and various albums from abroad that could be labeled "emo" by people who actually know what that word means."

I think it's accurate for when I'm writing emo or post-rock kind of stuff with hardcore flavor. When I write heavy junk I mostly take influence from the likes of Integrity, Unbroken, Acme, Acrid, Unbroken, Tragedy, Void, Judge, Union of Uranus, Chris Colo-bands, and Unbroken. When I'm writing really fast junk I just try to be as much like Infest and Negative Approach as possible.

i believe its best for hardcore bands not to get influenced by hardcore bands, because your songs will sound exactly like them.

I find myself reaching out to bands from The Devil Wears Prada to Winds of Plague to Protest the Hero.

So I guess in this forum it's shitty music with a technical aspect :p:

It varies for me. I have a bad/good habit (it's either/or sometimes) of writing in a similar style of a band(s) that I'm listening to at the moment.

It's pretty much Botch for me, but since I can't copy them even if I wanted, my stuff doesn't really sound similar.
