well written, honest review. will check this out.
Great band... he should also mention that these are all KIDS. I don't think a single member is over the age of 18 or 19.
i saw a live video of these guys, and it was damn sweet. i'll be checking out this album for sure.
amazing drummer, amazing band, they're all i think at least 20 i believe but they've been doing this band for years
I was so shocked to find this album in the 'Used Metal' section so I instantly bought it. This is easily the best CD I've purchased for the mere price of $6. I was waiting for this CD to come out for a long time because I loved their PureVolume version of Holy Shackles. The drummer is simply amazing... and I believe they were all about 15 - 16 when they first released 'Shut It Down' but.... yeh, I dunno, they are a young band nonetheless Sean, excellent review man. Animosity \m/
just picked this up because I've heard some good things... this is excellent death metal. drummer is phenomenal, guitars remind me a bit of exhumed at times, but they're by no means a ripoff band. I like this a lot.
saw this band live at cbgbs gallery bastufft and never heard a single thing about them prior. i was blown away.. really awesome stuff
"Hailing from San Francisco, where K Swiss and G Unit are more popular than Cannibal Corpse and Napalm Death," uhm .. . haven't you ever heard of the huge Bay Area metal scene? regardless, this band rules. Empires is better than Shut It Down, but barely!
Shut It Down is way better than this. the vocals and music took a turn for the worse on this one. i miss that grind mentlity they used to have. now they're just trying too hard to write longer songs. and f*ck Taste of Blood. im tired of these shitty breakdown bands
Shut It Down will always going to be one of my favorite album. But I do not think that Empires is such a bad album. The Band did their best. And plus, I think Leo's vocal in Empires is really impressive same with the drummer and the rest of the band members. They really did a good job on this album. And to that comment up there... It's not that they're trying to make the songs longer or whatever... 5 minutes is not a big difference. They just making it a lot more better. and plus, if y
Shut It Down was recorded in my parent's living room. True Story.
I saw em last night and they were f*cking great. Make sure you see em live.
This band is f*cking generic GET OVER THEM!
i've seen these guy live as well as listened to their cd. My only issue with Animosity is that I feel the guitar riffs are a little to basic, generic, uninteresting. It's all power chords. The drums on the other hand are extreemly intuative. I like the vocals alot as well. Probly would give it a 7. a good 7.
