Know what's funny? Their first album was written 5 months after he learned to play guitar. He has all of the skills down, but he has zero knowlege of music, he just writes what he thinks sounds cool.
#5
Yeah, I really like his writing though.

I actually talked to him too, he's seems like he really likes going out to meet the friends... I got punched in the face while dancing during JFAC's set and I went to the bathroom to wash my face because I was bleeding and he was asking if I needed help, it was cool.

I guess, we're kind of a bit too death metal influenced though. Check out the bands I linked.

Yes, like, flailing around to fight off invisible ninjas dancing. I do that at shows. It's not that much an issue.
#11
I can't say I enjoyed any of those bands. Annoying hardcore screams and generic breakdowns. Some of the riffing was kind of cool, though. Psyopus is weird (in a good way) but not very listenable; though I wonder how they remember those songs.

You're officially a faggot if you punch people for dancing. When you're dancing, you take hits, oh noes, you don't try to hit other people but if it happens, it happens, it's ****ing assholes that get venues shut down who hit kids for dancing. Stop trying to be the ****ing police and enjoy the show. If you don't want dancing, start another pit!
#15
Hardcore dancing is ****in gay, go listen to some more screamo you poser.

Haha, I do listen to a lot of screamo. How am I a poser? Because I enjoy dancing at shows? I'm not trying to impress you chief, it's just fun. I prefer circle pits and just plain two stepping, but if kids are gonna be dancing, I'd rather just throwdown that try to change the tide of the pit and start fights.
#17
Meh, to each it's own I just hate when I'm at a death/black metal concert and here comes some kid with died black hair and a comb-over flaining there arms. I guess it's alright if your into that kinda of stuff, but I want it left outta the metal scene.

It's unfortunate, but there are bands who are into that... my band is. Through The Eyes Of The Dead is, their singer was in the pit during From A Second Story Window's set when they played with them, and there's videos of him when they were smaller getting in the pit with kids during their breakdowns. As long as there's bands like that, there will be pits like that, hell, Suffocation gets circle pits started.

The only time I ever got pissed was when Psyopus' singer asked to get a circle pit started, and some ghetto hardcore kids knocked me and the other kids who were getting it started down.
#19
Uhh circle pits are moshing. Flailing your arms about helicopter style is hardcore dancing. Hence, Through the eyes of the dead(metalcore)

TTEOTD is like melodeath with brutal death segments, not metalcore at all.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGklaAFWxK4

Only trait of metalcore they have is breakdowns. They have two stepping parts in two songs.

Then you look... Cannibal Corpse has breakdowns. In Flames has two stepping parts.

Cannibal Corpse and In Flames aren't metalcore... oh... shi.
#25
Are you blind? That's not even metalcore, thats fricken hardcore. And sadly, In Flames has moved to more metalcore

Preference is what you like. I like listening to stuff like the bands listed. You like listening to to Emperor (who I also really enjoy :p).

Genre classification isn't really preference. You can't prefer that something like Through The Eyes Of The Dead sounds similar to something like Aiden because of traits they share with Minor Threat, but you can say they sound similar for traits they share with In Flames.

You get what I mean?
#29
Yeah I get what your saying, I'm saying that you like things that I don't really. Doesn't mean you still can't talk about them and like them. Maybe I should have said personal preference.

You punch them in the face do you? Wow, thats amazing coming from a 'grim' Black Metal fan. Stop whining.

I used to be into this scene not so long ago, I really dug SYNT and Robinson. Thats not to say I don't enjoy them now, but I moved onto other things. That being said, Robinson are insane. Psyopus are pretty damn decent too.

How does Michigan grind differ from regular grind?


Really noise influenced and it has a lot more breakdowns than most styles.

Just because a band has melody doesn't make them melodic death.

If they're predominantly core then they're core. Period. One or two small exceptions doesn't make a band un-core. It doesn't make them any more metal.

Quit getting your panties in a bunch because someone called your favorite band core. Why? its just a ****in genre. Oh noes my favorite band is core, i can't be involved in the scene! Despite the fact I wear girl pants, have retarded bandannas and dance, I'm not core!! I'm totally fukkin metal!

Yeah right, buddy.

If you don't want people's opinions on a band or genre (scene grind, btw, is for homosexuals.) then don't start a thread about it. especially one that frowns upon scene idiots (whereas most of the forum indulges in "core" often, we don't post about it in the wrong forum) like this one does.

Learn to play at the internets, GTFO my metal forum, etc.

If you want to have a scene circle jerk the UG metal forum is NOT the place.
#37
How does the band sound, "core." Please enlighten me.

My favorite band ever is Orchid, they play screamo, am I getting worked up over that being a form of, "core?"

Also, you fail to see what the concept of an opinion is. I'm going to call you stupid because you can't recognize a fact. I never once said I was oh so metal or anything, I just stated that TTEOTD, based off of their sound, sounds closer to a mix of stuff like In Flames or At The Gates and Cannibal Corpse, rather than a mix of In Flames or At The Gates and Minor Threat.

Psyopus is cool. but almost too weird. they get a little bit annoying for the definant lack of low end.

All i can say is that they are more similar to KsE than In Flames. The Minor Threat video was the best out of all of those BTW. 80's Hardcore FTW!

Aren't Through The Eyes Of The Dead deathcore? I always labelled them that.

SYNT are a great band but out of all I prefer Kissyface Fashion and their faggotry. Psyopus are great but sometimes they give me a headache.
