Since technically, they are signed to Walt Disney?
They're signed to Hollywood, which is owned by the Walt Disney company. Its also the same company that owns JB, Corbin Bleu, Miley Cyrus and Jesse McCartney.
I listened to them and their sound is metal, but what does the pit think of this?

Pretty much; in the same way you can't play guitar because you're in the Pit.

Its lame.

As far as I know, they're more Metalcore than anything. Elitists will probably correct me on that though with some unheard of, made up on the sport sub-genre, seeing as that is normally the case.

Dear lord, I hate how many different genres/sub-genres there are.

EDIT - Oh you soooo changed that title.

I thought most people would say that it's "Metalcore" which is not TR00LY BR00TALZ and KVLT.

And if the Disney factor bothers you, then consider the fact that Disney is working on this movie:

EDIT: actually, I'm not sure about the movie. I've heard different things. Either way, just cos Disney owns their record label doesn't mean they're sock puppets to Disney.

Procter and Gamble owns Gucci and Pringles. Does that change anything?

Why dont you do some research on that, then come back and tell us what you find?

I forgot they existed. I liked them when I was about 13, so they can probably be safely considered alt/nu metal.

...if you like Atreyu, why do you care who they are signed with?
The content of this signature is pretty much irrelevant

Well of course. It is a little gay that they are signed to Disney (they swear in a lot of their songs which is weird), but I still like em.

they're not signed by disney, just by a company owned by disney. it's just a way to get their music out there isn't it?

I see. As long as they aren't directly signed to Disney I am fine with it. Atreyu is post-hardcore btw. At least I am pretty sure of it.

Also fuck you guys that are calling em fags!

Not to seem like I'm picking on you ... but why?

As every teenager with the god-given right to spend nights by the computer, arguing with strangers about which bands suck knows, record labels are Evil Corporate Bastards™ who will get in the way of your art.

Any artist who gives two shakes of a tallywhacker about the quality of their music will avoid labels such as Disney, for fear of having their music manipulated and watered-down for mass consumption, rather than letting the artist do their own thang.

All sarcasm aside, there are labels like Nuclear Blast, Roadrunner and Century Media that sign metal and heavy rock bands almost exclusively. In fact, a lot of today's metal is on these labels, and it's surprising to see artists in this genre try anything unusual such as a Disney-owned label.

I like a fair few of their songs. Metalcore is the term I hear most thrown around when discussing Atreyu, well other than emo, ***s etc lol.

I would say they're metalcore, but if someone just says metal then I'm not gonna argue with that either.

I like their music. Labels shouldn't matter.
