hmm they sound pretty good, singing sounds good and the guitars are pretty creative(though some riffs sound a little weird, little blues or jazz inspiration) I think they'd get more attention if they spiffed up their bandpage, like a new layout. Better recording may help and just plain playing shows outside their region

I'm guessing they don't want to be Escape the Fate, so your point is moot.

hmmm That's why when you guys start bands you guys get nowhere. I'm saying if they wanted more attention not how good they are or how they sound like(they are pretty good). All that stuff matters you dimwits, myspace is the most powerful place for a band to get recognition and overall tells if they are good/popular or not. If your page looks like the default myspace page chances are I'm pressing the back button right away without even scrolling down. I'm looking at this from a business point of view people 'o' plain Facts.

lookpizza said they needed more people to get into their music, well I'm just saying how they can GET people to listen to their music, or even look at it.

@Nashawa and your right, they'll never be like Escape the Fate....xDDDDDDDDDD

If you exit out of the page because it doesn't have a fancy design with twitter feeds you probably wouldn't like the music anyway.

Thank the lord.

Come back here when you're not 100% retarded. Then we'll talk.

Until that day comes, I can't be bothered.

The fact is that you're shallow and know nothing about the music industry, but you're acting like you're an all-star.

You forgot to quote good/POPULAR. I'm saying (from a very blunt point of view, when you 1st open a page) and they have a default bandpage, usually most will exit out (I know I do) It doesn't grab your attention and in turn wont get discovered by many. It has nothing to do with how good the band is but shows a lot of how good/bad they are at advertising themselves If you don't make an effort to put yourself out their, then you'll never get discovered 'o'

If you can't be bothered to click the play button because the band can't afford a flashy myspace even though you've already followed the link, that just says something about how much of a tool you are. It says nothing about the band.

Dude, and who the hell do you think you are?? Seriously bro? Didn't make a comment on the band but instead (like a troll) have to nit pick at someone's comment. I may be a little brute but I'm making a point, I'm talking about myspace dude not the whole music industry, get that in your tiny brain. Until you can throw in your two cents on the matter don't talk crap

I did throw my two cents in, hence your response. In fact, you quoted my "two cents."

And who do I think I am? I'm someone who actually knows what he's talking about, and furthermore, and actual music fan. I'm not trolling, you're just a douche and the world would be better if less people acted the way you do.

EDIT: And I've talked about how much I love this band in other posts. Just because you just decided to drop in and know nothing of this forum has nothing to do with me.

I'd rather put more effort in songwriting, DIY recordings (www.myspace.com/laatstehalte; we made recordings in a rehearsal room, we hardly knew how the equipment worked and had only one day to record, but I don't care, for me that's just a part of hardcore/punk) and playing live (recordings mean nothing when a band sucks live)

I'm so confused by this all. Usually if a band has a big flashy myspace I don't bother listening to them because it takes to long to load in my browser and that shit is gaudy.

edit: @kurtrip I didn't know that was your band hah I just downloaded your split off Skream your Lungs Out like a week ago. It's good stuff man.
I'm an asshole.

I never quoted any of your two cents boy. Lets see, all you have done is complain about my comments, you have said nothing knowledgeable or presented an argument towards mine, instead you complained like a girl on her period. I'm done wasting my time with someone who can't even play well yet acts like an elitist DDDDDDDDDDDDDD

Dude, just shut the fuck up. You obviously don't listen to hardcore and have no clue what you're talking about.


Also, Escape the Fate is beyond gay.

Bahaha. I hope you're no older than 13. If you are, then you have no excuse for being so mentally stunned, but if you're in grade 9, at least then I can dismiss you as a moron who'll hopefully grow out of it.

If you meant popular they why even write good? Fancy myspace pages are just a huge waste of bandwidth that are (usually) designed to draw shallow people in, and in my opinion to distract them from how mediocore the band's music is.

Escape The Fate sucks, if people see a myspace and it's not flashy and don't play the band's music. They are total tools.

For example look at Cruel Hand, Touche Amore, Bad Seed and I could go on and on. They have default myspace pages, and look at them, they are infinitely better then ETF. ETF will never reach the musical ability, passion, integrity or mindset those bands possess.

How the hell did Escape the Fate get into the convo??? lols you guys are funny as hell xDDD getting all defensive on something (which apparently was a meaningless argument to people) All the bands you listed got like 20,000 or less views on youtube, which says a lot erm herm. I don't like Escape the fate, just their old albums (when ronnie was in) and only the most brutal songs, not that poppy crap they had. Everyone get off my balls and drop the convo already, nothing you say is gonna prove anything or effect me Guys need to grow up and stop whining like a bunch of little girls

This isn't whining. We're trying to prove you wrong, which I'm pretty sure we did. Who cares if they have 20,000 views on youtube or whatever, still doesn't make them worse then any bands you like. Seriously, how dare you insult Cruel Hand. That is unacceptable in my space.

On topic = Stop being so butthurt guys, I agree with him to an extent. Recordings are important to me. If they sound like cats squealing in a bag then it won't give a band the proper interpretation of what they sound like. Saying that you should go see live but that isn't really practical when you live half way across the world.

Myspace layouts should look ok to an extent. I'm not fond of waiting an hour for it to load and to my dismay find that they sound like shit.

All bands I listen to have less than 10 views on youtube.com, therefore making them the best.

I feel like judging a band because they took the time to get a cool layout is just as bad as judging a band for having a default page.

You aren't annoyed when you have to wait 5 minutes for a twitter feed to load just to realize the music is terrible?
