Sounds like that whole "melodic hardcore meets TGI" sort of things that a lot of bands are doing with the positive lyrics thing.

It's the new band of Alex Erian from Despised Icon. I'm actually really stoked to see this come to fruition because on DI's farewell tour Alex said he wanted to start a hardcore band, and, well, here it is.

Alex is also just a really fucking nice dude. One of the nicest guys I've met at a show.

His vocals still sound way too tough for the style of music though and the guitar tone sounds too metal. But hey, I'm still gonna keep an eye out for it.

I'll give your thread some love Jay.


I kinda liked what I heard from the clip, but it seemed a little generic hoodiecore to me. I'm sure I'd much better appreciate it live.

The ending of the video with their names coming up as the camera focused on them reminded me of a typical set-in-New-York-about-6-post-grads comedy.

I can dig eeet.

It's a shame TGI turned into a srscore band. I used to really like them.

My news feed is blowing up over this, because it contains members of DI, as well as the bassist and guitarist from Blind Witness. If there's something Quebecers like more than complaining about their rights, it's Blind Witness.

This band was okay, I suppose. They're playing their first show in a 1500 cap room, I have no idea why.

New song/video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqnZw4rh-yQ
Completely generic from the 5150s, negi stomps and flat-billed hats to sorta-melodic parts and the appearance of a bulldog, because if there's anything that hardcore dudes love, it's their dog.

Almost funny.

His vocals bother me.


It's like he didn't even try to assimilate into hardcore, they're generic as hell.
#14
I don't know how Alex went from Despised Icon which I've always thought was one of the more respected Deathcore bands to managing Skip the Foreplay and this thing. I mean, is he looking for a fast payout or something?

No, people in Montreal are really like that.

They pretty much said they weren't gonna do anything particularly new, at all, even slightly. And they've done exactly that, released a really generic hardcore song. It's alright though.

This always brings this question to me. Why do people like TGI/respect them so much? They sound like really generic metalcore, and not even the "Melodic Metalcore" type deal, like As I Lay Dying/All That Remains type deal.

Those bands. Those bands to me are the ones that heard ATR, KSE, AILD, etc. and went "Guys, we so have to sound like that!". Problem is, it sounds like the worst parts of those bands.

EDIT: That song up there, that was awful. I swear, aside from the vocals, it sounds like something off of an A Sense Of Purpose B-sides cd.

Sounds like Parkway Drive...and not in a good way. That first riff is straight up PWD.

Because they were one of the only good deathcore bands ever to exist. And also why does them being a different genre from those melodic hardcore/At The Gates worship bands make them bad... you're not allowed to talk anymore.

Did someone just call TGI deathcore? What the fuck?


Also, I'm interviewing Alex.

Ask him if he jumped ship on Despised Icon because he realized mimicking sterilized and formulaic hardcore with slick production and breakdowns was the next trend, and he just wanted to stay in the money.

DI split because they couldn't maintain a stable lineup after their one guitarist left for JFAC. One of the members was starting a family.

Last I heard the other vocalist wanted to start a Pig Destroyer-esque grind band.

When Alex said he wanted to start an "old school" hardcore band, I didn't think hoodiecore would be the result
#31
I kinda want to ask him about how OTB came to be, why he's managing Skip the Foreplay, how he thinks people will perceive his new projects considering he was in one of the most influential deathcore bands around, etc.


But you guys have to understand that everyone in Montreal is into this stuff, I knew that it would turn out to be like this.

I was talking about The Ghost Inside.

Different aesthetic, different appeal, different sound, different crowd. I didn't say they were bad because they're in a different genre. They're bad because they play that genre, but for some reason the melodic metalcore kids still eat it up. Brb talking, u mad?

I think TGI is the most respectable hoodiecore band that's out there. Plus they're all good guys in general/not assholes like other hoodiecore jerk offs.
