I just gave them a listen on iTunes....every song sounded similar.

They're kind of catchy, ill give em that, but I think they're overhyped. Everyone talks about them like they are the heaviest band ever.


Ugh and dont use the word beast again.

Sikth. Now that's a unique band.
So sad they broke up.


ABR are ok. Kinda thrash-ish metalcore. The breakdowns are what kill it for me.
But that goes for any metalcore/deathcore band that has potential. They always end up ruining it by constantly using genre cliches.

If you weren't ignorant you would would agree with my post.
Or back up yours, with a somewhat reasonable argument.

This post is self-explanatory.
I might just have to sig it.


Eh, I don't know if it's quite sig worthy.
Keep your eyes open though, this kid has potential.

I LOVE ABR, stop hating on them because you suck at life.
Messengers, is a damn good A$S album!



I have no problem with this band.
I have problems with their fanboys and insisting that they're this amazing and insanely original band. When in turn, only makes them look like a complete ass because it exemplifies how truly ignorant they are to actuall good music.

Exactly! They're original, maybe, for the first listen? But after that, the musical structure is stale, whether the music itself is good, or not.

They make me go blah. All the songs I checked out sounded identical.

saw them accidentally when they were opening for unearth and darkest hour. they were actually pretty good considering when they walked out the guy was wearing a chicks v-neck shirt and i thought for sure they would be lame.

haven't heard their albums but live they are good.

I like these guys, but they're so unoriginal it hurts.
People reckon just because they have a few breakdowns in 5/4 they are "omg, so technical".

Even disregarding their breakdowns, their riffs are pretty technical. Not like zomg amazing, but pretty tough.

I don't like Himsa haha.
I also hear that Darkest Hour is pretty boring live.
I doubt that they play any of their old stuff anymore

Well I've learned Composure and Back Burner and they're not amazingly impossible, but there are some pretty tough spots.

i agree with the comment that 5/4 breakdowns doesn't make them technical, which is why i DONT UNDERSTAND how people think veil of maya and born of osiris have original breakdowns. just because you can chug through diff time signatures doesn't mean its hard

I don't think Veil of Maya have technical breakdowns, just breakdowns that sound a little different. But I do hate the excessive of them, which at times ruins it for me, and I can't listen to them, while at other times I'm able to look past them and enjoy the album thoroughly. Born Of Osiris on the other hand, boooorriiinnnnng.

I like composure. That's about as far as I go.
I think signatures are lame.


(Not really. I just don't have nice things to put here like you all do. )

The only part in Composure that was tough at all was that one fill towards the beginning, but it's an easy song overall. Backburner, on the other hand, is a toughie. Learn that one. A hell of a lot of fun, but takes a while to get.

Listen to Abstract Art by BOO. It's got a pretty great breakdown.

I definitely like this band - but I'm going to have to agree with the people who are saying that their songs do kind of sound the same....
