Cool. Aaron's signature "I ruin anything half way decent with my trash vocals and goblin like appearance."
How anyone likes this dorks vibe is mind blowing.

1. Aaron Bedard was, is, and always will be a horrible vocalist. He literally just yells over the music.

2. This demo blows and isn't even as good as Bane who sucked.

3. It's pretty rich of him to go off on reunion bands in the first song "Headcount" when he has played fests which live on reunions for years.

Oh hey, it's Bane but with good riffs this time. Talk shit all you want but every single one of you mother fckers jammed out to Bane before you picked up your various drug and alcohol addictions. Now they are back with good music this time. <3

Bane is not back.

So everyone who stopped jamming to Bane became addicts, Bane was the reason they were addicton-free, got it it. LOL. Can you be more delusional? Btw I never listened to Bane.

I bet if you were still edge you would crank that shit every time you drove past the movie theater like you now do with Mindless Self Indulgence these days. Adderall is a hell of a drug aint it?

" Btw I never listened to Bane."

^ Looks like Aaron's new band is actually pretty successful all you naysayers. He is reaching people that Bane didn't reach before. If that's not a testimonial for how good the new shit rocks I'm not sure what is. With a fcking demo. They don't even have a release yet.

anonymous

A demo is a release. How is it "successful"? Based on what?Sales? It's a Bandcamp demo. Bandcamp doesn't list number of plays. What non-Baners have they reached? I need a laugh.

I think what it is is people are tired of hype. It's Aaron from Bane's new band, right. So? His vocals are still horrible. He's a shady-shade.

Can Aaron please do us a favor and leave our ear drums alone, we've been through enough after hearing the shit bane put out over the last too many years

Amen! Hardcore vocalists have never been known for their singing ability, of course, but this guy doesn't even try. He literally monotone yells over the music and it's distracting.

They'd be better with a better vocalist but then no Aaron from Bane status thus hype/shows/fests/tours from that.

If I remember correctly Asron Bedard pooped his pants on stage once

That's not really fair. He yells over the music but then he drops down to loud slow talking with drawn out syllables.

"I'm pushing 50 years old. I can't believe that I still get to do this and kids aren't laughing me out the back door. Five years from now, I mean....there's no way I'm getting up there. There's just no fcking way." - Aaron Bedard, interview with Consequence of Sound, 2014. Way to stick to your word there gramps.
