No song titles as of yet, so I've just numbered them. First song is just an intro. The songs are pretty diverse, I certainly wouldn't say they're all post hardcore songs, but that is probably the biggest influence on my stuff. Also occasionally a bit of polymetric stuff in some of the songs. Let me know what you think.

1 was very boring.
2 is much better, liked the string part and the main guitar riff.
3 is already showing a tendency for harmonic minor, chugging and other generic ness. Right on cue a metalcore pedal riff comes in.
4 is better, the little arpeggios in the riff are nice.
5 has a good opening riff. Not the most original thing ever but it works well.
6 makes a change from harmonic minor or major.
7 makes for a nice change of pace, very pretty. Very uplifting.
8 is based on a good idea, but it just needs tweaking. It's a bit of a mess and lacks coherence.
9 is as generic as balls. ABR esque.
10 is another generic fest. ADTR esque.
11 reminded me of Avenged Sevenfold.
12 is yet another generic fest.
13 could do without those 3 snare hits in a row at the beginning, sounded odd. Didn't really like this song much.
Over all, a lot sounds like generic metalcore. There were good moments though, it's all well written enough.
It's like you have something against open hihats, ride cymbals and toms, considering how many songs there are you've avoided them a lot.

Overall, I guess you could say that all your influences are proudly displayed on your sleeves but are held together with sticky tape and coloured in with highlighters.

Also, despite being hated around here, I think ABR and ADTR are awesome, so I'll take that as a compliment.

Its a shame that no one could ever take direct plagerism as a compliment. How the hell can you live with yourself?

plagiarism? Though similar, I assure you I've never heard of that band or song before in my life.
#12
Awesome. Thanks. I'll get round to checking it out tomorrow I don't see the ADTR comparison either, let alone suggesting that it's verging on plagiarism hah.

What is your problem, dude? Yes, it does sound very similar but why would that be a reason kill yourself? You should start being nicer to people, being mean will do you no good.

OT: I liked most of the songs, 7 was a really nice listen!

I thought exactly this. There was no need for it at all. I've seen the comments epi posts on metalcore album reviews, and as a result have very little consideration for his biased opinion.
#15
Yeah don't listen to Epi. I can be a dick sometimes but he takes it to an unnecessary next level.
Listening back I have to say I don't hear the ADTR, not sure what I was on about. Maybe just the whole upbeat post hardcore was enough for me at that moment.
