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

First of all, I enjoy deathcore for it's complexity and it's the only genre heavy enough for me

^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.

No Claudio Sanchez doesn't sound as much as a girl as this guy does... And they all look really girly....

Decent at best.

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

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.

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.

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.
Common sense is becoming such and uncommon trait.
