"Definition of oxymoron" You haven't listen to the Acacia Strain or bands like xBishopX or Casey Jones if you think they sound the same.


anonymous 7/9/2012 5:33:58 PM

I guess he wasn't getting enough hardcore cred with c-ckpunch


anonymous 7/9/2012 5:37:12 PM

anonymous 7/9/2012 6:49:12 PM

Meh don't care, it's not all that great or original. Maybe i'll change my mind later??


anonymous 7/9/2012 7:40:40 PM

You haven't listen to the Acacia Strain or bands like xBishopX or Casey Jones if you think they sound the same. Have you listened to those bands?


blankzzz 7/9/2012 9:04:50 PM

was hoping it'd be a pop-punk band


This_fucking_guy 7/9/2012 9:49:39 PM

This is cool for griffin. He's a good dude, I had a blast recording with him in minneapolis with one of my bands.


ineedsalt 7/9/2012 10:24:40 PM

anonymous 7/9/2012 11:28:56 PM

On the bright side, you guys have another band to bitch about.

c-ckpunch >


anonymous 7/10/2012 7:02:00 AM

this really isn't bad.


anonymous 7/10/2012 7:29:33 AM

Does he say "slip my dick through a rope, to get my feet off the ground"?? Sounds really close to it.


anonymous 7/10/2012 8:12:22 AM

Sounds too wimpy coming from 3 dudes in heavier bands.


Stupid_News_Poster 7/10/2012 8:25:56 AM

How does sticking your penis through a knotted rope get you off the ground? This shit sucks, stick with TAS.


anonymous 7/10/2012 8:48:53 AM

lol too pure to die


Snoopy2 7/10/2012 9:41:41 AM

Talent is not stoked


anonymous 7/10/2012 10:16:38 AM

"were in 2012, bring something new" Go join the Dubstep revolution gay. Metal and Hardcore has found a shape and I'll be glad to see it regurgitate it until I die. I don't enjoy types of music because I hope they change, I enjoy them because they are good.


anonymous 7/10/2012 11:29:06 AM

pure shit...just like c-ckpunch...at least that band was a joke though, although it was a very bad joke. that dude needs to just stick with the one band that is decent and ride it out as long as he can bc they prob don't have many more good years ahead themselves.


anonymous 7/10/2012 2:05:55 PM

sounds kinda like "...And Life was Very Long" TAS. wish they woulda kept that sound.


anonymous 7/10/2012 2:52:58 PM

wow this is really really really bad


anonymous 7/10/2012 3:27:18 PM

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA they suck


anonymous 7/10/2012 4:45:19 PM

Pretty sure he says slip my neck through a rope.


anonymous 7/10/2012 5:32:26 PM

fck yeah brocaps.


anonymous 7/10/2012 5:43:34 PM

Rehashed snoozefest


sandpaperseatbelts 7/10/2012 5:54:20 PM

The acacia strain you say??? NO. CARE. EVER. On to the next shitty news post.


anonymous 7/10/2012 10:13:58 PM

BAINT


anonymous 7/11/2012 7:14:54 AM

Great! Another programmed laptop band!


marching_band_rules 7/11/2012 12:36:36 PM

i dunno i thought it was pretty good


anonymous 7/11/2012 2:22:45 PM

Emmure is stoked.


anonymous 7/11/2012 8:31:06 PM

this is fcking garbage.


shittyshit 7/12/2012 2:55:01 PM

Vincent Bennett, you're in a death metal band. I think you're confused.


anonymous 8/9/2012 10:21:48 AM

Fuuuuuuuck this, stop trying to be in a hardcore band and just do TAS. Sincerely, the fcking world.


anonymous 3/30/2016 5:55:53 AM

Fun Fact: 99.9% of comments here are from people who: A: Dropped out of high school B: Has a job that pays no more than 30k a year C: Aren't actual musicians D: Still engage in dick swinging with their "bros" to prove who has the biggest c-ck of them all. E: Live in suburbia F: Think their shitty local band/forum celebrity statues entitles them to an actual worthy opinion
