*sighs* well the biggest drum in a drumset is called a BASS drum, now a lot of metal bands have two, "double bass", in this case, he has three, "triple bass", *sighs*.

Actually i seen and interview with the drummer and he has some kinda of pedal that allows him to play all three.

shoulda known a bunch o kids tryin to not sound like noobs would flame but o wells. theyre pretty ok theyre newer stuff is getting worse and worse only because the singer is like not growling as much as he use to. if you listen to theyre first album (not suicide notes and butterfly kisses but i cant think of the name right now) then he growls like a beast and now hes like singing. on the contrary theyre guitarists have gone uphill but still away from the whole metalcore feel they use to have. hairmetalcore is what they are now. theyre drummer is pretty good. theyre bassist is well hes an average bassist. so theyre a pretty much OK band

Well I kind like atreyu, like ain't love grand, bleeding mascara, right side of bed, lip gloss and black.

They need a new vocalist though..the lead singer from atreyu sounds like he is barfing....
And how can their lead guitarist be that small?

You can operate a triple bass pedal, by like a normal double bass, then on the right foot, you use your heel and toe to control 2 pedals, pretty cool really.

So theoretically, you can have quadruple bass! Goood for crazy insane deathcore bands.

And if you bother using the searching,

Not at all. Scene Kids tend to go ape**** if they hear double bass so in turn they would go even more ape**** if they heard triple.

this is atreyu's way of trying to sound original.

But you don't hear triple bass anywhere, it's just a gimmick to make the bassist look hardcore or whatever..
Well if I get a triple bass pedal does taht mean I am fast?

no.

i have really never heard an atreyu song that uses triple bass. Come to think of it, none of their songs really use any fast double bass. Anyway, i don't think they need a new singer. He doesn't growl as much anymore but i like what he is doing now even though they are not keeping a real hardcore/metalcore image.

By the way jckido21, they're first ablum was called "Visions".

yeah. I like all atreyu albums actually, I guess its the sort of mood u have to be to listen to the type of song the band has but they have covered alot of different aspects of metalcore and hardcore from fast and brutal, now its more melodic and ballad like. I think maybe in thier next album if they release one they might change again altogether. who knows. maybe the old vampirous atreyu we knew from vision, fractures in the facade of your porcelain beauty and suicide notes and butterfly kisses will return yet again with something even heavier, faster and painful than ever imagined and in my opinion it is not beyond the bands talent to do so.

if he likes them so much, how did he not notice that the guy uses ONE bass drum with a DOUBLE pedal.
maybe he thinks you add the original pedal to the new double pedal.
but unless the guy has 3 feet, which he ****ing doesnt.

I just got The Curse yesterday and I really like it. I really haven't heard any of Atreyu's music until a yesterday. I don't know why lots of people don't like them. I saw on previous posts that he has a tripple kick pedal, but it really doesn't sound like he even uses it much.

KoRn dude
10-08-2006, 06:34 PM
He got the triple Kick for the new album (A deathgrip on Yesterday).

It is a little misty why As to why Atreyu are hated. Many argue its because they started out as one genre, then split out into another (many say they founded, but i dont want to say anything). So many of the original fans dislike the new sound.

Hope this helped.

Good band overall. Best thing about them is their guitar work. Dan Jacobs and Travis Miguel are one of my favorite guitar duos. "The Curse" has some good songs but had a lot of bad ones. "Death-Grip" and Suicide Notes" are pretty good. They need a new bass player, though. The only thing worse than his bass playing is his screaming!

i love "the theft"

thats because your homosexual
that song defeats the purpose of atreyu

its still kind of present but now they have songs like shameful, the theft, and exs and ohs, where there is like 2 screams.

I love Atreyu, I think they're a damn fine band. Not the most technical band in the world but still a good band nonetheless.

Most people pick fun of Atreyu because it's the cool, generic metalcore elitist thing to do. I think it's rather pathetic; if you don't like the band, that's fine, but please stay out of this thread.

Talentless hacks. Just like Bleeding Through and From First to Last, they're in it for the monetary value and not the music. I hate to use the word "gay" as an adjective, but it suits the "boys" here. Word on the street is that they're signing a contract with Revlon.

I kind of passed off Atreyu as just another metalcore band before "Death-Grip" came out. But when it did I immediatley got into 'em. It bothers me how so many people think Death-Grip is sh*t. Most of that stuff is pretty progressive compared to most of what other stuff metalcore bands are recycling these days.

$Roland$
06-07-2007, 04:15 AM
Personally, I really like Atreyu. I think the reason so many people dislike them is because they compare them to what they think is "real" metal or "real" hardcore. And it seems like a lot of people don't like when bands change. I'd much rather see a band grow and evolve than remain static.

chloroformkisme
06-11-2007, 12:10 AM
If you go to the Atreyu website you can put together the pieces to their new song "Becoming The Bull" and then listen to the song. It's not bad but they need to go back to the days of The Curse...this mellow stuff is for the birds. I just miss loosing my frustrations while listening to the screaming of the Curse and the new CDs lack that.

In_revolution
06-11-2007, 01:29 AM
Woah, I totally didn't catch the similarity between Right Side of the Bed and The Hive, but your right. I think I just lost a little respect for Atreyu. Still a good band overall though, and at least Dan Jacobs still chooses to play solo's in most of the songs. Props to him for that AND his kickass guitar.

Kutless
06-11-2007, 01:46 AM
I personally Like them and have been a fan for a while. The only thing that bugs me is I saw them on Jimmy Kimmel or one of those late night shows and they played ex's and Oh's and it was terrible. well, the song wasn't terrible, the guy who does the screaming usually, was singing the verses and stuff, and the guy couldn't carry a tune for the life of him. And I kind of think the measure of a band is the way they play live. Cause any good producer can make a band sound good on the cd. Still love them, but those vocals near killed me

"A Death Grip On Yesterday" is a really poor album in my opinion. but anyways, my favorite songs by them are The Crimson, Right Side of the Bed, and Lip Gloss and Black is really cool too.

Love Atreyu, they're great...and I, unlike many of their fans, am glad they dropped the "love-gone-bad" and "evil women" lyrics. I think they're great.

However, I was a little bit disappointed by the lack of heaviness on their new album.

Atreyu is another one of those bands that was extremely sick back in the day, but disappointed me with their later records. I have to admit, though their style changed for the worse IMO, their new stuff is decent. A band that used to be as great as they were couldnt put out a $hitty record if they tried I guess.

It's because they went to a major label. And, as we all know, major labels these days will give absolutely no control to the artists if it means they'll make the most money.

What label are they even on these days? Even so, The Curse came out on Victory and that was the beginning of the end IMO. The only 100% badass Atreyu release is Butterfly Kisses. The band decided to go the '80's hair-metal sound' route on their own, becoming much more accessible to fans everywhere by tripling the amount of clean vocals in the songs. Standard formula for a hardcore band that sells out if you ask me. But like I said before, their new stuff is still pretty decent, even from my point of view. I'm not a hater or anything, just disappointed in a band that was once a favorite and now just another 'ok' metalcore band out there.

Hollywood Records I believe.

I disagree with your second sentence though. The Curse was my favorite album by them. I was addicted to Bleeding Mascara and The Crimson for quite some time.

But I do agree with the clean vocals. They should just let Brandon do them all. Alex should stick to screaming; he's a horrible singer imo.

I thought Alex's clean vocals could use some major improvement. Brandon did a much better job singing on LSPA, which is not good news for Alex. But the instruments were top-notch.

Hopefully he will scream more on their next album, but they did sign to Hollywood Records...which is composed of mostly Hannah Montana and Disney-esque crap. So we'll have to hope for the best.

Being a drummer I can say triple bass would be nice.


You can tune or a bass drum, just like you can tune any other drum. The third probably has a different sound than the others. Playing two same sounding basses (sp?) then playing two different sound basses has a nice effect. Its not like he can tune his bass drum on the fly.

Also, more room to mount toms and cymbals, etc.

The drummer for the last band I was in didn't want to sing and play at the same time (we never did find a singer, one of the reasons I quit), and I told him to learn some Atreyu songs, and he said that Brandon Saller only played simple stuff.

I'm not a drummer so I wouldn't know, but from what I hear Brandon's actually quite a skilled drummer.

I suppose you're right, nobody wins when someone wastes their time complaining about a band they don't like. But complaining can have a purpose; it often rallies the fans to defend the band in question and then I begin to see (or not) the qualities of the music that I dislike.

Anyways, I suppose I could type up a couple reasons why I don't like Atreyu. My biggest beef with Atreyu lies in their lyrics and the brand of music they play. I found the lyrics tacky and contrived; I generally frown upon any band that writes songs with an Anne Rice theme. As for the type of music they play; that brand of metalcore (I use that term loosely) is far too calculated and repeated to draw me in. The music sounds like it's made to sell records and thus looses its sincerity (possibly a symptom of signing to Victory). I also think the whole "screaming with singing tacked on" is displeasing to my ears.

I can't help but think that Atreyu (and the bands aping them) cheapen what metalcore is. Bands like Unbroken and Strife carved out a niche for their own brand of music and now these crappy nu-metal bands have changed it into some abortion of their own.

I could give a reason and it wouldn't persuade you. Also, you know you like a music. You find out why through analysis. You hear music and go 'wow this is awesome because of this, this and this', you tend to go 'wow this is good'. You don't need a reason for disliking music.

Victory are douchebags. Atreyu released Best Of Atreyu just so their contract with Victory would end. But then and joined a Disney label..

Atreyu blows now.

Love the song "Ex's and Oh's", and the fact that they have a drummer that plays triple bass and sings too!!!!! Discuss.

no offense,but the triple bass drum there,is just for looks,he has 2 feet you know,ive seen him live twice,and met him...its humanly impossible to clamp the high hat,and play triplebass ontop of that

Atreyu are still one of my favorite bands. I was a fan since i first heard Suicide Notes. It was an album, like many others, that i really got into during my freshman year. Travis Miguel lived in P-town like me and i think most of the band lived in yorba linda which was the next town over. I think they're really good and the mix of brandon and alex's vocals work really well. The new album did take a while to listen to but sank in. Plus, Dan Jacobs main influences are a lot of 80's hair bands. They're one of my favorite bands coming out of the oc along with avenged and bleeding through.

Victory are douchebags. Atreyu released Best Of Atreyu just so their contract with Victory would end. But then and joined a Disney label..

Atreyu blows now.


And Death Grip is crap compared to The Curse And Suicide Notes.
I would have stayed with Victory, their situation was fine, I think.

lawl @ Triple Bass.


I'm a drummer, I can tell you he actually NEEDS 3 bass drums. He has a large amount of toms, so let's say he's playing the lowest toms he has, which would be on the far right-side of his kit. Now in this position, it would be impossible for him to play these toms AND keep a double-bass beat if he had 2 bass drums on their standard locations. So instead of having to worry about this, he can add a third bass drum into the mix, making it so that no matter where he is positioned behind his set, he will ALWAYS have 2 bass drums at the ready.

a7xshredda
07-05-2008, 11:21 PM
the reason he uses 3 bass drums is because his set is fairly big so the third drum (far right) makes it so that he can rotate his whole body to play the drums on the right side of the kit instead of keeping to lower portion stationary for the bass and rotating the upper portion of his body to hit the toms cymbals. i think he even has a snare for each side.

This is a band that I have loved for many years....but I was really disappointed when I saw them live. They singer not playing drums tried to turn it into a comedy show....the only bad part is that he isn't funny. The vocals just sounded really off and it left a bad taste in my mouth.

The much cheaper and more popular alternative to this is to rig multiple bass pedals to the same bass drum.I can guarantee you, he does not use that third bass drum. And while I haven't listened to Atreyu in a very long time, I'm almost as sure that he doesn't use all of those toms either.

Yes it is. Deanne is the first song i learned to play on my guitar from them. I forgot what song they ended with on warped tour but at toc they ended with lip gloss and black. the only thing i miss that piano thing they have on the album. other overlooked songs: Someone's Standing on My Chest, Nevadas Grace, and This Flesh a Tomb. i prefer any of those over right side or ex's and oh's

I would really like a full sized version of the Lead Sails album cover,
or a simple dark background with the atreyu logo and maybe dan's guitar or something.

but yeah i think theyre pretty awesoe and they have brilliant songs, such as my fork in the road (your knife in my back) , the crimson, ex's and oh's , bleeding mascara, and wehn two are one.


theyre first three albums were comepletly amazing, but im not so sure about lead sails tbh, yeah its good, its just not there style in music on all songs

Their best albums are their first two and their EP Visions.

Death Grip was ok...it had one too many filler songs.

By the time Lead Sails came out, when I first heard Becoming the Bull, I thought...this stuff is alright...and then I bought the album and was thoroughly disappointed.

I think Lead Sails is a good album, it's just very different from their previous stuff which I'm pretty sure was the whole point, having a go at a different style and all. I do prefer the earlier albums like The Curse, ect but Lead Sails is still a good effort on their part.

Lead Sails is good in most aspects. Alex's singing voice just doesn't carry as much weight as his screaming does. His singing is weak. Brandon's voice is MUCH more powerful.

But Atreyu hasn't STOPPED screaming altogether. Hopefully their next album will go back to their main hardcore/metalcore roots.

Lead Sails is the only album of theirs i care to listen to and i don't think it's bad at all. The only problem i have with it is the main riffs for the songs sometimes get a bit samey.

The drummers voice annoys me for some reason. I think it's because i like the other guys voice much better so whenever it's the drummer singing i wish it was the other guy haha.

i think the dummers voice in 100000000 times better then the lead singer/screamer. his scream kinda annoys me. this band(as korny as they are) went way downhill. and the fact that they made a "Greatest Hits" Album(ReallY?!) just to get out of their label is pretty lame.

my expectations for this album are on the floor. can't get any lower. this band has seriouslly gone off the deep end. i really hope its decent though because atreyu helped get me into heavier music back in my freshman year of high school, i'm a junior in college now. i was listening to pop punk at the time and suicide notes and butterfly kisses really appealed to me for some reason...i still enjoy it every so often, but as for the new album i don't think it will be good

Shredx
05-04-2009, 10:49 AM
Wasn't really aware/anticipating a new album for some reason.

I went through a massive atreyu fase a few months before lead sails came out. Took me ages to get into LSPA though, and it was such a contrast and wasn't quite as good.

So I'm expecting more of the same/combined more with the creature or the album after that (forgotten its name)
