I love them, but I dont know any other bands that sound like them. That's probably why I like them so much.

theyre post-hardcore/lite metalcore

even tho their myspace saya "hardcore/emo" hardcore is fast punk songs, they have meatl in their songs.

and they arent emo because the have a warped view of emo, they think emo is lyrics and the way you act on stage


emo is emotional/melodic hardcore punk. look it up.

Never really got into this band, something about them that I don't like..

Some of their riffs are pretty good though.
there is no fear in this heart.

They're Emo enough for this forum. No need to get into the whole "blah blah elitism" argument.

And I don't mind their music. It's relatively creative, and Craig Owens has a wonderful voice (See: Cinematic Sunrise)

However, a large majority of their fans are dumbass scenesters.

Naw, most of the people on this forum are actually quite intelligent.

Or at least the ones who's opinions I actually give two shits about

I can't say I'm a fan. I've tried and tried to like them, but Owens' voice has this really pretentious sound to it that irritates the hell out of me.

Chiodos are one of my favorites. Craig has a unique voice and I'm really intrigued by it. Yet, they're not exactly what I call emo. Loved them as The Chiodos Bros. I kinda miss the days when they weren't so big, though.

One of my favorite bands. I guess the voice is really a love it or hate it type of deal, but it never bothered me and I actually kind of like it. Thier songs are also REALLY fun to play, I know everything off of AWTEW except for two songs. I also love thier live performances.
I'm a person.

i saw them live with atreyu and everytime i die. there stage show was ok and there guitarists/keyboardist and drummer were good and interesting but I found their singers voice to be shrill and annoying when he sang (though he wasnt bad when he was screaming) it also seemed like he was using a TON of reverb. Their studio isnt bad, but when i could spend my time listening to a band with a singer whose voice i like, i do. I also wouldnt spend money on buying an album (or time watching one of their videos/listening to the stuff they have up on myspace). They sounded pretty orrigional (some interesting instrumentals etc), which is nice but I really just cant get past how much their singer's singing annoys me.
And, IMO, atreyu and everytime i die>>>chiodos.

As much as I hate mostly anything emoish or post-hardcore...ish.. Chiodos is very cool.

A band like them to check out is Enter Shikari. They're kinda like Chiodos with some trance or synth or whatever. I think they'll get big.

Check out this Enter Shikari video, all you Chiodos fans should love it. (I couldn't get the link during school).

http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=1765533899

That was horrible.

If they didn't have the crappy synth then all those kids wouldn't be at that show.

The guitarwork is so generic it's almost laughable.

I think they are nothing special the guys voice is interesting but the lyrics are down right horrible in my opinion catchy but when you take yoursefl out of the music they are kinda retarded

Alot of them.

He and Anthony did a lot of duets.

And anyone who likes Craig should check out Cinematic Sunrise, his side/almost main now project.

They are ten times better then Chiodos.
