Our score 3

by Cory

The guys in Summer's End are in desperate need of a metal and hardcore history lesson. There are a lot of bands out there that rip off Swedish metal, but Summer's End is the first band I've ever heard that rips off Avenged Sevenfold ripping off Swedish metal. They were wise enough to leave out the clean vocals, but everything else, from the embarassing abuse of good production to the inclusion of former "Misfits" vocalist Michael Graves, reveals a band with technical ability and no idea what the music they play is all about. Masquerading under the guise of a horror themed metalcore band, Summer's End certainly went out of their way to look the part; They've got the black clothes and Davey Havok hair, the album cover features the living dead, and they've even come up with a Tim Burton-esque pumpkin logo. Unfortunately, that's the only thing remotely "horror" related about this band. The song titles trick the listener into expecting fun, morbid lyrics and instead vocalist Josh Hansen bores us with lines like "my reflection is a skeptical fear of bruising cuts as soft as a fresh gash because these contradictions can be like razors" or "devoured time with your story of fiction caste (their spelling mistake not mine) into my flesh like a hook." As most of the lyrics are unintelligible anyway, I suppose it's not a huge deal, but strong lyrics are usually the trademark of good horror bands and Summer's End's are terrible. Every song utilizes the same basic formula: 1. Simplified Swedish guitar riff (a la Avenged Sevenfold) 2. Up-tempo rhythms underscored by double-bass 3. At least two breakdowns 4. Bad guitar solo The few risks taken songwriting and production wise backfire rather than paying off. For nearly twenty seconds at the beginning of "(Track 3)," as well as at various other points on the record, the band uses the "in a garage" production sound, something so played out it HAS to be done right to work. "Headwound" features guest vocals from Michael Graves, whose vocal ability salvages portions of an otherwise boring song, but when the fake rain noise kicks in and the song wears out its novelty, I found myself actually waiting for the metal vocals to come back. The first six tracks are new studio tracks while the remaining three are live renditions of previously released Summer's End tracks. The sound on the live recording is pretty solid, though the drums sound very flat. Bottom Line: Summer's End can barely do metalcore and fails miserably at being a "horror" band. Too many good bands exist for people to waste their time with bands who are too unfamiliar with the style of music they play to even rip it off competently.

killemokids_ 9/5/2005 1:39:53 PM

i enjoy this band/album...i dont enjoy a7x.

norm_ 9/5/2005 1:39:57 PM

i think the proper term to describe this band is "taint-faces"

Justin_ 9/5/2005 2:00:57 PM

terrible band. good review.

mefuckyeah_ 9/5/2005 3:01:37 PM

Jesse Zuretti_ 9/5/2005 3:32:36 PM

That solo is soooooo out of key its ridiculous

Konstrix_ 9/5/2005 5:01:40 PM

i dont have a problem with this band

Coley Thrash_ 9/5/2005 5:06:34 PM

Cory, I never had a problem with your reviews. I thought that they had a Cradle of Filth vibe as far as being so completely over the top. I knew you were a pretentious snob with blatantly ill-planted roots. But I thought you had at least a relatively firm grasp on music. This band is not my favorite, but they are a very talented band. The Bleeding Through image beats them somewhat of their "take me seriously" factor, but that doesn't alter the fact that they write fun, catchy and mostly impressi

anonymous 9/5/2005 5:28:44 PM

good review

sam baumann_ 9/5/2005 5:32:18 PM

the reviewer obviously hasnt seen what this band f*cking LOOKS like. when they are ripping off not only a shitty sound, but the complete shitty image, you'd think that being disgustingly fat, ugly and dressed looking like a bunch of taintfaced gays would warrant this band making lambgoat history with rating of ONE.

XomeletX_ 9/5/2005 5:49:16 PM

Holy christ that's so amazingly f*cking gay

Ohhhhh_ 9/5/2005 6:35:30 PM

I like the cd. But what is with reviewing discs that came out months ago?

anonymous 9/5/2005 6:35:47 PM

I dont see how this is any different from Darkest Hour or All that Remains. It all sounds exactly the same. This is horrible yes but how could any other band in this vein get a better review than this?

omgwtflol_ 9/5/2005 6:50:48 PM

not a bad cd. shit reviewer. cory wouldn't know good music if it bit him in the ass. he spent a lot of time listening to avenged sevenfold to compare the two... that is pretty shitty.

hxcobd_ 9/5/2005 7:39:50 PM

I knew this review would be bad. No care ever, I f*cking love this disc. Metalcore album of the year, IMO

pulsar_ 9/5/2005 8:03:54 PM

This CD is alright. The song with Graves is by far the best one. I knew it was gonna get trashed the minute I saw it was reviewed on here haha.

Cory_Sucks_A_BIG_BLK_COCK_ 9/5/2005 9:43:30 PM

these guys are a f*cking worthless disgrace to the Maryland scene

truthsayer_ 9/5/2005 11:24:47 PM

I think I'd go with "shit band good review" as the response I most agree with at this point in time.

xsecondthoughtx_ 9/6/2005 2:30:48 AM

"the reviewer obviously hasnt seen what this band f*cking LOOKS like" - Sam Did you even read this review? The second paragraph starts with the way they look. This band is deffinately not my favorite band but its a good cd, i would give it a 6 or 7.

Joseph_ 9/6/2005 2:44:16 AM

Scott the Vile One_ 9/6/2005 2:48:03 AM

This band is one of the more kick ass bands out these days, and a hell of a lot better than some of the shit they play where I live (emo needs to f*cking die) All I can say is "When are you going to come to Sacramento, and you all f*cken rock hard, and for everyone who disagrees, you are all a bunch of f*ckheads." Now the sad thing is that you can all bash these guys all you want, but is that really gunna do much to ruin all the have accomplished, I think not you sorry gays.

yourmom_ 9/6/2005 2:52:42 AM

1)the reviewer, cory, is a thunder c*nt/f*ckshit. 2)he probably listens to cher and shania twian while jerkig off to pokemon characters. 3)summers end is very talented. 4)cory is a cl*t face. 5)who cares what they look like. it's about the f*cking music. 6)they got michael greaves to song on one of THEIR songs. that's saying something. 7)if you don't like this genre then f*ck off and go critisize the genres you like. 8)this website is full of retards.

adrian_ 9/6/2005 2:56:53 AM

this reviewer guy doesnt know shit...he just likes his mainstream avenged sevenfold crap....their new cd is what should get this rating....i kinda liked the band w/ their old stuff then out of nowhere....they come out w/ crap........summers end will melt all you queer's faces...they are soon playing here in salinas and i definately cant wait...awesome band.........and if you disagree....i dont care..that's ur opinion...i just know that there's more fans then people who hate them... www.myspace.c

Chad_ 9/6/2005 3:00:42 AM

OBVIOUSLY lambgoat is a piece of shit web sight prolly maintained by failed metal musicains who have nothing better to do that critcize people who have made it somewhere with there lives and arent at home hating the world because they suck. summers end is one of the most talented bands out there AND dont you forget it

Jessica_ 9/6/2005 3:05:32 AM

amazing review.. haha this band is one of the most shitty rip offs out there right now.. Half of the bands merch is a knock of wannabe Himsa. Not only did they get rid of the ONLY good members of their band.. they also are secret internet fattys.. by myspacing their images.. when in reality they need to lay off the twinkys and focus on their health concerns and bad teeth/hygiene before the focus on ripping off other shitty rip off bands.. This band over all blows.. and I wish them nothing but

Jessica_ 9/6/2005 3:07:02 AM

Oh and whats even more pathetic is this gay pathetic excuse for a band made a myspace bulletin whining about lambgoat's harshness on the review.. These pssys need to learn to take the truth.. The truth hurts doesn't it fat asses?

Scott_ 9/6/2005 3:10:54 AM

Seriously f*ck yyaawwll Summers End is the shiit, this review f*cking blows along with the ppl that agree with it.. OOH f*cking no they have a A7X sound big f*cking deal a lot of bands have the sound of others get the f*ck over it, gays these days i swear

fuckoff_ 9/6/2005 3:11:54 AM

your review is f*cking shit. I dont understand why everybody complains about the ripping off of genres. If you love a genre of music and want to make musi, wtf should you play. music you like, shut the f*ck up and sck a dck.

COdy_ 9/6/2005 3:14:02 AM

so basically "cory" has a horrible tase in music. you need to realize that this band is perfectly crafted together. the timing on all of the instruments is perfect in sync. josh has a very unique/amazing voice. comparing this band to avenged sevenfold is such a horrible put down. summers end guitarists are some of the best musicians i have ever heard. "cory" you need to shoot yourself in the face because this review just makes you look like a dumb ass. better luck next time.

chello_ 9/6/2005 3:14:17 AM

Ok first of all i dont know where this guy is comin from, talkin like he is the god of metalcore and can critisise.*ignorant* i think this band has amazing musical talent and are a good clash of all sides of metal or METAL CORE whatever. im seriosly at a lost for words right now...idoit

Shawn_ 9/6/2005 3:18:23 AM

Everyone is entitled to thier opinion... And if you don't like the band or they aren't your kind of "taste" in music, well that is your opinion, not everyone else's. And I for one think Summers End are amazing. They have a good drummer, They're guitarists are pretty sweet and the vocalists' scream is awesome. Although I havn't gotten the chance too see them live cause they couldn't get over the border when they were supposed to come to Canada, I can't wait to see them. And yeah I can admit in

jon_ 9/6/2005 3:20:27 AM

ahah this site sucks ass. summers end.... love you guys

teddy_ 9/6/2005 3:24:15 AM

this review would be better if the reviewer actually knew what he was talking about. to cory: start listening to good music then you can judge good music. summer's end isn't the best band around but they can certainly own your face on anything.

Frank_ 9/6/2005 3:25:30 AM

f*ck this f*cking site i love Summer's End. I've f*cking chilled with these guys after a show b4. and f*ck im gonna go see them when they come back to San Antonio. so f*ck this site and f*ck you ppl who talk shit lets see you get signed or even release some good music. if you dont like it then dont f*cking listen.

KT_ 9/6/2005 3:33:53 AM

Wow so i completely agree with this review. The only talent they had was their old drummer Alexi. He had true experience, not saying that they werent cool guys because 3 of them were however those 3 guys arent in the band anymore. So it's okay to say these guys suck at life in all aspects.

god_ 9/6/2005 3:35:49 AM

uhh this band just straight up ripped off The Black Dahlia Murder with no shame. Haha pathetic attempt at originality.

Dylan_ 9/6/2005 3:37:38 AM

f*ck whoever wrote this review. i doubt that person even knows how to hold a f*cking drumstick. all i have to say is. you know playing music like that isnt easy. dont thrash on somebody like that. that required a lot of hard work, dedication, money, effort, and balls. all you do is f*cking write what you call "reviews". so you think they are unintelligible? i think you need to review what intelligence is before you say...HEY THATS NOT METALCORE?!?!?! you are a dumbass. they are horror core. ok.

Koriha_ 9/6/2005 3:38:45 AM

this guy is a scene dumbass.....WTF is he talking about HORROR? people cant even have a cool pic as an album cover without being labeled anymore. what a dumbf*ck

aj_ 9/6/2005 3:41:38 AM

f*ck off this band is amazing they shred way more then f*cking avenged sevenfold stop being such a music nazi

Matt_ 9/6/2005 3:43:28 AM

Summer's End write good deathcore and the only other band i can think of who have an extremely similar sound is Through The Eyes Of The Dead.. and even then they are doing something original in comparison. Download the clip for Haunting Hallowed Graves from their myspace its like 9mb and a good metal clip and the best song on the album.. A7x are sucking gays... \m/ www.myspace.com/snooker8th

max_ 9/6/2005 3:43:41 AM

This Review is BS. Summers End is one of The better if not one of the best sounding metal/hardcore/trash music around these days. Give them some f*cking props will ya?!! Oh yeah and dont f*cking say their solos suck, I bet you cant play worth shit. f*ck all you pssys' that dont know what real good music is. Oh yeah, and f*ck this review also.

unimportant_ 9/6/2005 3:52:14 AM

It seems like every one of you pre-pubescent, whiny little dirtbags has nothing better to do than sit around and insult every single review from every single band on this website. You're too caught up in being a 'badass' and having 'unique' music tastes to actually appreciate music. You want to look good for your crew, otherwise known as your group of more whiny, pessimistic gay kids. Music changes, and the old school shit that you praise won't be around forever. So get used to it and stop bi

cory_ 9/6/2005 3:54:57 AM

wook_ 9/6/2005 4:04:02 AM

wow, i like summer's end but everybody thats trying to defend them sound like 13 year olds that only know how to say f*ck and gay. i think you are doing more harm then good.

Bryan_ 9/6/2005 4:20:30 AM

first of all the solos on this album that r off key r done on purpose. there is nothing wrong with throwing in something different in songs. second of all i hardly doubt any of u that r saying all this shit about summers end r half as good musicians as any of the members. As for Cory, there was a misprint on the booklet for summers end. if u notice half of the lyrics r missing on most of the songs. Maybe u should get ur facts straight before u go out and start posting this shit.

METAALLL_ 9/6/2005 4:24:57 AM

cory you are a complete f*cking pleasure. go find me a band that is completly original has made there own sound has original riffs and dress differently to any other...you cant you idiot c*nt. every band in the world is going to be compared to another band.if summer's end sound anything like any other band it would be himsa,and himsa are f*cking rad so it doesnt say anthing bad about summers end..avenged sevenfold are awsome musicians i'd like to see you play guitar better then them you f*ck h

Joe Boo_ 9/6/2005 4:31:44 AM

Chris Campbell_ 9/6/2005 5:35:13 AM

Cory is low life bastard who probrably jerks off to gay bands like poison and rat. I know few bands who do guitar solos with sweeps, so hey Cory, yes you, pick on a band that actually doesnt have talent, and hey, once you show me music that came from your gay non talented music mutialting lifeless gay soul, il listen to one word that sputters out of your mouth in between the c-cks getting shoved in, get a life, summers end is by far a talented band, theyre out there trying to make it, and theyr

Cory_ 9/6/2005 5:40:36 AM

Im cory and i love summers end but i dont want to admit it because i think that theyre so hott because im so horribly gay, and dont want to admit it, and i smack off to theyre cd every night before my mommy tucks me in, my fantasy is to get reary beatd by the whole band one mamber after another, and i get th ebiggest pleasure out of picking on greta bands and making my gaygish ego boost little by little, almost the size of my little little dck

coryblows dick_ 9/6/2005 5:48:34 AM

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA cory has no life, summers end rules, and cory has no judgement skills , besides judging whether or not he should pick on another talented band and make them feel like shit or not while he hides in shame jerking off to pictures of james hetfield and james newsted

Kimberly_ 9/6/2005 8:15:11 AM

Summer's End is amazing. Their songs are so well put together and the lyrics - wow. Probably one of the best bands to ever be recognized. The english language cannot find words good enough to charcterize their immense talent. End of discussion.

what_is_wrong_with_you_ 9/6/2005 8:23:07 AM

I can't believe I just read through all of those comments. and the fact that people use the word "amazing" to describe this band is completely mindblowing.

rob_mcfeters_ 9/6/2005 8:47:05 AM

what happened? Did the MySpace shortbus get linked to Lambgoat for the first time? Did Summer's End get their feelings hurt that much? Wow.

robocop_ 9/6/2005 8:52:48 AM

wow...what a lame review. i think this cd is one of the more solid metalcore cds that i own, and i thought the band was pretty good live when i saw them too. on top of it, they're good guys, so i could really care less what your lifeless reviewer has to say about it.

Remy66_ 9/6/2005 9:14:22 AM

I agree w/ a couple other people on their comments about Cory obviously listening to A7X until his CD's were worn out in order to compare the 2. Who's dck did Cory suck to get this job anyways? Maybe A7X's? As far as image goes, they don't look or act in any of they ways he describes, maybe rather than jumping around like a bunch of f*cking idiots, being more concerned about quality is more important to them than their "image." It's understandable some won't think they're greatest band that

wow, these comments confirmed that the combined iq of summer's end fans is 3. i've never read such idiocy in my entire life. im guessing a majority of the people who disliked this review are still in middle school or new to high school? i sure hope so at least.

This band sucks... the cd sucks... the band as people suck... their "fans" suck... their "fans" can't use proper grammer... I have an idea... stop stretching out parts of a metalcore song to try and make it longer. You bore us all. Break up now and start playing shitty indie rock.

SwampLord_ 9/6/2005 10:08:17 AM

Attn: Fans of this shit band ------- Listen to Suffocation instead, gays.

Strongereveryday_ 9/6/2005 10:38:12 AM

ok, I gave this a shot, but it does nothing for me. This is boring, played out music. To me, this is like sitting in the dentist's office and hearing music in the waiting room. It just blends into the backround, never doing anything to peak my interest. I was hoping this would have some sort of an edge, something to grab onto or really catch my ear, but this is nothing. Really, it was in one ear and out the other. Completely forgettable, not one original element to this music.

I've not heard a single song by this band but judging by its fans I'll be stearing clear and avoiding listening to them. It must suck to have such immature, illiterate fans.

Jessica_ 9/6/2005 11:15:35 AM

To anyone posting saying Summers End is the best band out there.. You must be living in a f*cking box.. they are MEDIOCRE and are honestly basically good for one thing and one thing only.. A coaster.. Other then that the music is total and utter SHIT.. The furthest this band will go is being an opener for other shitty bands that sound slightly similiar to them..

ohsnap_ 9/6/2005 11:31:42 AM

thank you go out to the street teamers they really changed my opinion on this band, i thought they were shit, now i think they are worse than shit. obviously if a person gives a shitty band a shitty review the reviewer just "didnt listen" or "doesnt get it" ever think there is nothing to get? they play shitty music thats all there is to get. fin.

h4unt3dfx_ 9/6/2005 12:18:32 PM

You've heard of an opinion? Well everyone is entitled to one. I personally think Summer's End is a great band and I was one of the first people in the Houston area to get their CD and promoted them as hard as I could. I could see why some of you probably wouldn't like them but learn a lesson in respect. Summer's End is a talented band, so what if you don't like their song writing? They are all very good musicians who do a great job at executing the song. You might not like how they write the son

I think this review is needlessly bitter. Does this guy have something against the band? This bad isn't my cup of tea by any means but they are nowhere as bad as this review claims. Have I heard better bands? Yes. Do I give a shit what a review says about any other bands I might like? No. Essentially I'm saying that if you are a fan of this band who gives a f*ck what this kid says. I do agree with his ATF review though.

Puppet_ 9/6/2005 2:50:31 PM

This Is Is A Effing Piece Of Shit Review And Is All Too Byest. ..Oh And The Guitar Solo Thing...They're Effing Incredible And You Will Never Have The Stamina And Skill It Takes To Even Remotely Sound Like Them. kkthnx

Summer's Shit_ 9/6/2005 2:52:46 PM

Every one who posted that they think Summer's End is ok or Rawwwwking must be sucking the biggest black dck ever ..... Cory is 3 time greater than Summer's End or for you dcksmokers and yankees Cory > Summer's End

Fred From Up the Road_ 9/6/2005 3:38:02 PM

I heard that Fred from Around the Way wrote this review from Corey because he was trying to print something on his new HP and since it didn't work he was really mad at the CEO of HP, who happens to be a HUGE (!!!) Summer's End fan (she listens in her Bentley while driving to Martha's Vineyard), so he was all pissed and stuff, like OMG! So, like Corey had Fred write the review and Fred tried to print it to give it to someone (Fred actually gave this a 4.13/10.00) - it didn't work, so he downgrade

dogmatic_ 9/6/2005 3:50:28 PM

the fan base alone makes me hate this f*cking band.

vegans_taste_good_ 9/6/2005 3:58:17 PM

most of you dumb c*nts crying are still in 10th grade. grow up. summers end f*cking blows, they will not be known in 2 years, and all of you gay kids will move onto the next "cool" thing.

ihavegas_ 9/6/2005 4:04:37 PM

attention kids complaining about their opinions... this is corys opinion... shut up ... alright if you disagree .. GREAT, if you agree GOOD no one really gives a shit that much and to those whove said that people shouldnt be allowed to review if they dislike the band.. .what the hell again , didnt you just state something about personal opinions.. whats it matter. would you rather have nothing but reviews that suck up to the band telling them theyre so great and NEVER ripping off any o

Fred and Cory are cunts_ 9/6/2005 4:49:52 PM

OK f*ck FRED AND f*ck CORY , they both must obviously blow at judging bands, summers end does not fit anything that those jerks put down

JoeSummersEnd_ 9/6/2005 4:54:28 PM

OOOH, you don't like our music! boo f*cking hoo. Cry me a river fanboy. We have more talent in our little finger than you do in your whole body. What band do you play for tough guy? huh? probably some bull shit in flames rifoff. gays.

ChemicallyImbalancedSloth_ 9/6/2005 4:59:20 PM

wow, these idiots just don't understand how entertaining they are. Thanks for the laugh, kiddos, but this band is still generic and boring.

Kevl_ 9/6/2005 5:04:10 PM

Good review, hilarious comments, and shit CD. Keep up the good work Cory, last two reviews you've written have been pretty much spot on.

corys emo!!!!_ 9/6/2005 5:04:23 PM

Cory, if i ever catch you anywhere ill f*ckin beat your ass you little prick, pssy ass bitch, you ain't no reviewer, your just a whiny emo bitch and you know it.... go listen to your avenged bs.... the day that you can play better then anyone in summers end is the day that i blow my f*ckin head off cause it would never happened... you stupid bitch ass pssy, show your face around my town and you'll get beat down like the little bitch you are, i already know your either friends with chili

xBrendanx_ 9/6/2005 5:13:29 PM

I love how Summer's End obviously sent their dumbass legions of fans on a jihad against Lambgoat. It's not Cory's fault you suck, guys, hate to tell you that. Stop playing music.

xBrendanx_ 9/6/2005 5:15:52 PM

PS - Whoever pointed out that Summer's End is better than other bands because "they got Michael Graves to sing on their album and your band didn't" needs to have all of their albums burned. They obviously do not deserve them.

anonymous 9/6/2005 5:21:49 PM

By: Cory on 9/6/2005 5:13:29 PM if you don't want to know that your album is crap, you shouldn't send it to people and ask for their opinion.

Badkarma_ 9/6/2005 5:34:45 PM

Listen to all you whiny little bitches. So he posted a bad review of a bad album. So f*cking what. This album really isn't that good. And I believe that reviews are based off of the opinion of the reviewer, so his opinion is that this band sucks, I happen to agree, but that's my opinion. If you think it's good, that's your opinion (although it's a really bad one) And to those making threats and whatnot, do you realize how f*cking stupid you look? It's a f*cking record review, you all act l

will_ 9/6/2005 5:55:33 PM

[summers end is a great band and great guys, just cause theyre not a bunch of fashioncore pussies with emo cuts doesnt mean they cant tear that shit up]

solideogloria_ 9/6/2005 6:05:53 PM

this shit is on hand of hope records. name ONE good album that label has released. this music is for gays that are too pssy to listen to cryptopsy. get a real metal album. p.s. micheal graves is a conservative jerk. DANZIG FO' LIFE!

jailbreak_ 9/6/2005 6:06:44 PM

this band is not good. why are people arguing about this so?

notorious_dob_ 9/6/2005 6:12:01 PM

why do people keep saying cory has no life? what does that have to do with reviewing a cd? it's also funny that summer's end posted a bulletin and used the word 'gay' in it. im sure many gays listen to them, so thats insulting their own fan base. shit band, good review

deframon_ 9/6/2005 6:37:19 PM

use what cory said and make your band better, you guys suck now but you can prove us all wrong or maybe not ahahahahahahahaaahahhahahahah

will_ 9/6/2005 6:51:29 PM

I love all the "hardcore" dudes who post threats to cory in their comments. so f*cking lame. you call him a whiny emo bitch, yet look who is pretending to get so worked up over an internet review. go talk to a girl you pimple faced douchebags. summers end is decent...headwound rules, though.

Paul_ 9/6/2005 7:12:15 PM

Corry you are a f*ckin idiot. Just because a band dares to step out of the boundries that everyone else is following and not play the same break downs and chuga chuga riffs doesn't mean you have to bad mouth them. All the bands in the hardcore/metal scene sound the same now its good that someone dares to be different. And I bet you have never even seen these guys live. John is a sick ass guitar player with way sick solos, so dont talk shit about the guitar playing until you can learn to play. Al

Jake_ 9/6/2005 7:14:08 PM

SEninja_ 9/6/2005 7:54:45 PM

theyre not tryin to pull off a look or anything. they just are who they are. they play AWESOME music and are great guys. all you guys who are sayin stuff about em dont even know em. and uh, cory....if you hate em so much, whyd you spend all ur time writin up an essay about how horrible they are???

Dirge_ 9/6/2005 8:01:18 PM

alright well first of all, Summers End is f*cking awesome and if you dont know them get to know them. the guys are just as awesome as their music. which is pretty f*cking awesome. and second Summers End inspired me to get off my ass and play my guitar instead of sitting here and eating cheetos. Oh yeah, cheetos are awesome too. If it werent for Summers End id still be some gay lil computer geek looking for things to make fun of, hmm kinda like you cory

f*ck you gays. and f*ck your negative reviews. eat shit.

Michael Graves would indeed play with a shitty band. He got famous being the worst example of a scab ever.

James_ 9/7/2005 12:30:20 AM

Wow.. This is CRAAAAAAAAAAAAAZY.. IM definatlly not a fan of Summers end.. But cmon.. That review was a Bit harsh... It really Seems to me that Cory has something Against This band From the Start.. To all of the Kids posting here.. You All call these guys gays... Do you know them personally? They may Be really cool Guys... I met A few of them on the Warriors Tour and they Were super Nice... all about having Fun.. Who cares What they Look like... Instead of Insulting People that are Different

avenged_silentfold_ 9/7/2005 12:53:26 AM

kudos to james. obviously cory has something against summers end...OBVIOUSLY he takes that into account of his review. not very "professional" of him at all. and if any of u have any doubt of how summers end is an accomplishing band, then look at their fanbase. summers end, keep playing for the fans. that's what is all bout'. who gives a f*ck about no lives and their "reviews".

James (Doesitmatter@inter_ 9/7/2005 1:05:54 AM

Also i just noticed that Cory added " f*ck Summers end.. f*ck that band in there Shitty asses" or something of that nature... Thats REALY mature... That makes me Lean twards the Fans defending them...

pulsar_ 9/7/2005 5:37:58 AM

I like Summers End, but this is retarded. So someone gave the CD a negative grade. WHO CARES? Getting pissed off on a comment board doesnt solve anything.

Steve McG_ 9/7/2005 10:20:45 AM

Well, a few things. I read all of the comments, and let me say that I'm moving to Cananda, if i am to believe that you are all the future of this country. I once met a man named Henry. Rock and roll. Chuck Barris was really a CIA agent and ? and the Mysterians kill ish.

badkarma_ 9/7/2005 2:10:03 PM

I had to read through all the comments again for a good laugh. But you know, I don't even find it funny anymore; actually it's pretty sad. These poor kids think this 2nd rate band is the second coming, and to be honest, I'm a little concerned. Kiddies, please, look for something better, cuz if you're this passionate about music like this, man, your life is seriously lacking something (mainly intelligence and taste) so please, do yourselves a favor and listen to something better.

hangthedj_ 9/7/2005 9:09:46 PM

LMAO!I can NOT believe this shit!I've never seen a band act so unprofessional in my life.They are not a good band by any means at all.AT ALL.They are $$$ and image and thats it.They play the EXACT same music that is making Himsa,Bleeding Through,It Dies Today and any other makeup wearing "metalcore" band wealthy.I'd actually probably rather listen to ANY of those bands over these guys simply because there isnt one moment on this album I havent heard somewhere else.THE ENTIRE ALBUM IS RIPPED FROM

guys seriously....cory's right...we f*cking suck donkey balls......seriously....you guys should probably quit listening to us

theguyfromcameo_ 9/8/2005 3:10:59 AM

because of this review (which was f*cking brutal, by the way) more people know about this band, and many people probably listened to the mp3 out of sheer interest alone. There is no bad press, anyone hating this band just helped em out, and the fans that posted look stupid and uneducated. Everyone needs to just make out...but seriously, this is a 4 or a 5...

thegoddamnawesome_ 9/8/2005 8:07:09 AM

Hate to break it to you, but this cd still sucks...especially considering Tom Jones is dropping some new hot shit on Tuesday

nightmare_ 9/8/2005 5:01:34 PM

after reading all these asinine comments, i have realized that summer's end sucks so much more than their shitty music. threatening to beat up people anonymously on the internet= youre a scrawny 17 goth kid with the sexual experience of an 8 year old and the music taste to match. in fact, im gonna go see if summer's end will add me as their friend on myspace, upon which i will flood their comments section with my personal opinions of their band, and see how quickly those crybabies take it down.

nightmare_ 9/8/2005 5:02:47 PM

P.S. this "cd" should have gotten a -3/10. now whine about it on myspace you raging gayasses.

Lambgay_ 9/8/2005 6:07:44 PM

lolocaust in it's truest form.

Simply a passerby_ 9/8/2005 11:11:35 PM

interesting as it may be the ony reason half of these kids that are bitching at cory knew about this review is because summers end wrote a myspace bulletin telling kids to rip cory a new one. Looks like there are more robots than i have expected. I applaud you cory for giving your opinion on these talentless fools. Also on another note i talked to their old bassist dave he as well agrees that their shit sucked and that with the new lineuo they are even worse. i say we blowup their van? Anyo

drewcifer_ 9/9/2005 8:25:21 AM

horrible f*cking shit. pretty close to my review as well, so i have to say good job.

XjohnnyXrebelX_ 9/9/2005 10:27:44 AM

guys seriously....cory's right...we f*cking suck donkey balls......seriously....you guys should probably quit listening to us posted by Summer's End (summersend@summersendband.com) on 9/8/2005 3:02:29 AM When did we ever really start actually "listening" to your shit band. Seriously... You guys should go on tour. And you guys should play Cincinnati. Talk all of the shit you want there. PS- MMMMMMMMMM-bop is way better than this shit. And so is big black nigga diNk.

heartwork_ 9/9/2005 7:20:44 PM

great review....and if your gonna be in a band you should not be f*cking pussies and realize that not everyone is gonna love you and bend down and kiss your ass, and if it bothers you so much that you post a f*cking bitch fit about then you should not be in a band....f*cking babys

Youg Uys _ 9/9/2005 11:05:24 PM

Upon much consideration, we have the following to offer. 1. Youg Uys rocks. 2. Summers End < Youg Uys. 3. All of the excellent members of Summers End have been dismissed and with them, their only literate fans. 4. Yeah, they're fat. 5. Youg Uys is far more svelte and sexually appealing than Summers End. Just consider the cover of their debut album, "Dink Bitch," and compare. 5. Youg Uys is so comfortable with our total superiority and lyrical wizardry that we not only have n

All I can see anywhere is "U gayS OMG SUMMERS END IS SO BAD" They're not good? Of course they're good. They're talented. When it all comes together, it sounds like a train wreck.

dykamflow_ 9/19/2005 12:53:53 PM

and thus summers end sucks

youreasillydickhole_ 9/28/2005 6:05:26 PM

so like i was saying, how the f*ck do you get that summer's end sounds like avenged sevenfold? LOL @ you for even f*cking attempting to degrade a talented band with such filth. I don't know what you listen to, but i'm sure summer's end beats them horribly, you f*cking pansy bitch. and i mean seriously who is a album reviewer on lambgoat? isnt this a f*cking road runner records forum? LOL @ THAT, go rock out to nickelback, gay

Truth_ 10/1/2005 3:41:04 PM

I really must think that all these retards defending Summer's End really know nothing about metal at all, that is the only possible way they could be so ignorant. Summer's End was probably the next step these kids made from Korn to something a little heavier, but just as shitty. Also, what is so original about this band that people keep mentioning? I agree the review was harsh but at the same time it was the truth. I've been playing guitar for 15 years, and while I admit these guys are decent pl

steve dead_ 10/19/2005 4:25:09 AM

Seriously, taste is taste, whether you love tough guy, mediocre mosh bands or if you love grind/sludge/lmao/lol/rotf/power violence.
