After hearing this band mentioned heaps over the last year I finally decided to check them out. I downloaded Monument to Thieves, and it rips hard.

Discuss and/or tell me if I should get Fifteen Counts of Arson as well.

Well I'd rather not waste my download limit on an album that's not that great, so why shouldn't I ask to see if it's decent first?

edit: allrighty, after I give monument a few more spins I'll get it.

First of all, I enjoy deathcore for it's complexity and it's the only genre heavy enough for me

Monuments is the only one I've got. Worth checkin out the others?

Fifteen Counts of Arson isn't as good, but it's still excellent. The Plot Sickens is good, but not recorded as well as the other two records. I also find that the songs feel a lot faster (more blast beats and such) and the record is over in like 10-15 minutes. Their Fools Gold 7" is probably the lowest quality of them all and I don't listen to it very often. Generally, the jams on Monuments to Thieves are not to be topped, but that doesn't mean their other material should be completely neglected.

Fifteen Counts Of Arson is the next HHIG record you get.
It's so raw and mean, there's no substitute.
Monuments To Thieves is great but 15 Counts is my favorite.

It was the 90's, they didn't know any better. Regardless, this band slays and remains one of my all-time favorites.

Yeah, when I first saw the name I though deathcore/synthy metalcore garbage.

Boy was I wrong.

They built the telescope so only they could see.
Painted it black and white so only they could see.
Put it in their pockets so no-one else could see.
Defined vision, so no-one else could see.
So I use my slingshot to bury rocks,
Deep in their eyes.


Songs been playing on repeat in my head for almost a month now.

BAAAAMP.

Such a dyno band. Fifteen Counts of Arson is one of the best sludge albums of all time.
Quote by ChemicalFire
The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.
