I wish people would stop using the term metalcore to describe this band. I don’t care what anybody say’s be it fans or the band itself. This is METAL in all of it’s glory. metalcore is what I use to describe bands that couldn’t hold these guys guitar picks. They use all of the great metal atmosphere from bands before them, early Slayer, and Max lead Sepultura! just to name acouple. A friend of mine who lived in Washington D.C. was raving about these guys and when he came back he let me listen to this album and instantly I became a huge fan!!!
