freedom is great, but metalcore bands like this should be outlawed

Sat, July 4, 2015 8:57 AM PT

I'm sure the dudes in Wyoming metalcore quintet When Eyes Restrict are nice guys, but it's bands like this that make "metalcore" a dirty word. Yesterday they premiered a new video for their track "Darkside" and I'm not sure what's worse, the video or the song (which essentially features the same riff over and over). Meet your new favorite band below.

This is what happens when bands care more about videos and other internet bullshit than writing songs that don't suck the hair off a donkey's nutsack. Wyoming is a terrible place but this certainly doesn't help them out at all.

Well it was cool for one their dad's to fill in on bass.

anonymous 7/4/2015 9:18:49 AM

lol @ the guitar fretboard closeups in the video, as if we should be impressed

anonymous 7/4/2015 9:19:04 AM

Are they "special"?

anonymous 7/4/2015 9:37:16 AM

This is awesome!

anonymous 7/4/2015 9:51:03 AM

I bet those kids on the playground were fcking terrified with all those Undertaker eye rolls from that singer. Brootal doodz.

anonymous 7/4/2015 10:13:02 AM

I wonder if the singer has ever tried heroine. Sure looks like it

anonymous 7/4/2015 10:17:21 AM

Wait this whole time this was a real band? I thought I was watching a video for preschoolers on how to be metal.

anonymous 7/4/2015 10:27:41 AM

Those guys shred...

anonymous 7/4/2015 10:37:09 AM

is this king 810's new stuff?

anonymous 7/4/2015 11:13:27 AM

More interesting than the lambgoat message board....

anonymous 7/4/2015 11:16:42 AM

Still better than Lamb Of God.

anonymous 7/4/2015 11:17:54 AM

Wtf was that? That was the longest one riff song ever. It's nice they decided to employee a homeless man on bass. Singer looks like he needed an affliction shirt and jäger bomb to go with those shit vocals...

anonymous 7/4/2015 11:53:06 AM

john abraham is stoked

anonymous 7/4/2015 8:05:58 PM

I now know what to watch if I want to kill a boner. Thanks

anonymous 7/4/2015 9:32:06 PM

Guy 1 : Hey guys, just came back from my first guitar lesson ... I learned this riff it's so awesome! Guy 2 : Dude, lets use it for a song!

anonymous 7/4/2015 11:00:32 PM

I don't know what you fcktards are crying about, music is tight, video is lock-tite. If I was in a band, this would be one of the first bands I'd ask to go on tour with.

anonymous 7/4/2015 11:30:03 PM

Vocalists are so gay because everyone of them think they are cool. This vocalist probably jerks off to tranny porn. Not cool, dude

anonymous 7/4/2015 11:32:14 PM

"I don't know what you fcktards are crying about, music is tight, video is lock-tite. If I was in a band, this would be one of the first bands I'd ask to go on tour with." Thanks for your input, guitar player of this band. Suicide Silence is gay

anonymous 7/5/2015 6:01:28 AM

Vocalist of a mid-tier touring band here, just commenting to confirm that I also wank to tranny porn

anonymous 7/5/2015 7:38:28 AM

I've actually seen these guys play a fee times and they're huge in the Wyoming area. Because they represent that even people from Wyoming can attempt to follow their dreams. Maybe they didn't choose the right song to do their video for, but at least they're out there doing something while you're all playing keyboard warrior behind your screen. Just saying. Live and let live.

anonymous 7/5/2015 8:13:54 AM

People saying "these guys are huge in Wyoming" are either friends with the band or not in Wyoming because they're not. Locals talk bad about them constantly and they are overall just not a good band. They're still young and learning so that's the main problem. yeau music videos are cool but maybe you should practice and become tighter as a musician and a group.

anonymous 7/5/2015 8:15:21 AM

It's sad that this gets an article when Wyoming produced bands like Deadspeak, Beastwood, The History Of Hope, Internal Hate, The Front, and many more worthy of the recognition. Great artists but Wyoming, and Casper in particular is notorious for kids trying to be bigger than they are and attracting attention like this. Bad press isn't good like people say. It makes you known for being shitty.

anonymous 7/5/2015 8:32:35 AM

Did the vocalist mom have fun with a dying goat?

anonymous 7/5/2015 8:56:35 AM

so lame that this gets attention instead of good morning tonight or another band from wyoming that doesnt blow.

anonymous 7/5/2015 9:01:26 AM

"they're still young" The bassist has a fcking skullet, yo

anonymous 7/5/2015 9:18:12 AM

butt-rock festivals in flyover states just scored an opening band goldmine

anonymous 7/5/2015 9:19:44 AM

Pantera aren't stoked about those vocals

anonymous 7/5/2015 9:54:00 AM

Why is this band getting any sort of exposure when we have bands that actually put out amazing music from Wyoming, and actually tour their asses off!? Such as Teenage Bottle Rocket, Righteous Vendetta, The Front, The History of Hope, and Sorry, No Sympathy.

anonymous 7/5/2015 10:35:40 AM

this song/video is getting attention because it is funny. kind of like watching your skullet-sporting dad fall down the stairs. we all need a good laugh.

anonymous 7/5/2015 10:40:27 AM

These guys are NOT big in Wyoming. Wyoming is full of insanely legit bands that work hard and tour and do shit the right way. These dudes are a joke to the Wyoming scene.

anonymous 7/5/2015 10:45:35 AM

exactly what the dude above me said. these guys have people buying likes on social media and only play shows to their 7 friends that show up. these guys are a joke here.

anonymous 7/5/2015 11:38:38 AM

All of you can eat a dck. They are following their dreams and doing what they love. And have worked really hard to where they are now. Instead of being c*nts for no reason, other to hurt another. Have a heart and support. If you knew these awesome guys, and how hard they work on their awesome music, and knew what they do for every other band, to support and motivate. It would change your mind real quick. Could any of you dumb fcks do what they can? No

anonymous 7/5/2015 11:42:25 AM

Buy the album... cause i drew the cover.

anonymous 7/5/2015 11:52:12 AM

to the person above me, i personally have toured, released multiple albums, and music videos. just because someone doesn't do what they are doing, or are, doesn't mean they can't say it's bad. there are movies you don't like and bands you don't but according to your logic you yourself can't dislike something because you're not doing it. oh don't like the way this chicken tastes? too bad. you can't say anything cause you're not a chef.

anonymous 7/5/2015 12:54:27 PM

Now all Wyoming ppl look like white trash too. You could have used a better house, or cleaned that one up a little.

anonymous 7/5/2015 4:15:35 PM

The crystal methodist church is their sponsors

anonymous 7/5/2015 7:05:45 PM

Omg these guys are like grody.com

anonymous 7/5/2015 7:24:54 PM

Dudes are lucky Wyoming strippers will work for $20 on a day off to spend 5 minutes shooting a home movie.

anonymous 7/5/2015 8:38:16 PM

I'd rather watch the slow death of a child than watch this low-rent Mickey Mouse shit again.

anonymous 7/5/2015 11:20:45 PM


anonymous 7/6/2015 7:38:52 AM

Lol, it's all the lead singers mom's house! Probably didn't have anywhere else decent enough to film this.. which is extremely hilarious. I laughed so hard through out this whole video! Sorry, not sorry. Shits weak.

anonymous 7/6/2015 7:41:18 AM

anonymous 7/6/2015 8:33:44 AM

I'd bang every chick in this video. Straight up. Most of the guys too

anonymous 7/6/2015 8:34:39 AM

This is really, really embarrassing.

anonymous 7/6/2015 11:38:06 AM

Shai Hulud should hit these guys up!!!

anonymous 7/6/2015 11:47:29 AM

Where did they get all those hot girls? -_- (laughs)

anonymous 7/6/2015 12:21:29 PM

south jersey local bands have looked and sounded like this for 10 years posers

anonymous 7/6/2015 2:19:18 PM

New dead cold inside? I hear they all suck a mean dck

anonymous 7/6/2015 2:59:52 PM

you know a drummer's serious when they use the lars ulrich sticks

anonymous 7/6/2015 3:05:36 PM

I am the singer of this band. I don't pleasure to tranny porn. I make tranny porn. And my dad does not have a "skullet". He has sweet hair bro.

anonymous 7/7/2015 10:04:01 AM
