AOTY especially with DL producing

anonymous 7/18/2012 6:53:53 PM

I still can't believe these fckers share the same label as attack attack. stoked nonetheless.

anonymous 7/18/2012 6:54:02 PM


anonymous 7/18/2012 6:56:21 PM

how did these guys end up on fcking Rise? Shit is weak. Hope Rise didn't go behind their backs and add synth & clean vocals into their songs. regardless i bet these guys will knock another record out of the park.

anonymous 7/18/2012 7:06:54 PM

Hope more 8 Strings!

anonymous 7/18/2012 7:08:52 PM

Emmure should be on this

rick____tocchet 7/18/2012 7:11:05 PM

how the fck is there over 3,000 views on this shit in less than 40 mins?????

anonymous 7/18/2012 7:14:45 PM

shat in my pants

anonymous 7/18/2012 7:16:53 PM

gay band that posers like

anonymous 7/18/2012 7:17:12 PM

I doubt Rise will ever have anything to do withchanging their sound ever. they are always gonna gonna write mean hateful shit forever.

TheLoudestGuyInTheRoom 7/18/2012 7:20:25 PM

Nothing can top Continent...or can it? Prove me wrong TAS

Probably the biggest band in hardcore right now

sandpaperseatbelts 7/18/2012 7:45:27 PM

Death is the only mortal... thats deep.

anonymous 7/18/2012 7:46:29 PM

All you idiots complaining about Rise "changing" their sound have no clue how the music industry works. It's not like they signed with fcken Island Records.

anonymous 7/18/2012 7:55:53 PM

Pseudo-misanthropist hardcore kids are stoked.

anonymous 7/18/2012 8:05:25 PM

^psuedo-intellectual. Make sure your sentences make sense before you post them.

bees 7/18/2012 8:07:21 PM

Having mixed feelings about this release (based off the one song.) Vincent said he knew fans weren't too happy with Wormwood and that they would try and go back to their earlier "sound." Also, name of the album is so fcking stupid. Still stoked for it to come out though.

anonymous 7/18/2012 8:23:58 PM

thank goddddddddddd

anonymous 7/18/2012 8:32:38 PM

Finally. A band that can actually write a real record this year. Stoked for this release.

anonymous 7/18/2012 9:11:38 PM

Shitty band.

anonymous 7/18/2012 9:14:11 PM

Going to be a huge win.

stewietantrum 7/18/2012 9:35:47 PM

Still don't understand this band's appeal.

anonymous 7/18/2012 9:47:43 PM

stupid gay kids with gauges are stoked

anonymous 7/18/2012 10:18:41 PM

hope they have him on tour for this album cycle they certainly are doing fine for themselves

anonymous 7/18/2012 10:24:06 PM

At least we know the bottom string will no longer be under-utilized. Repetition is stoked.

anonymous 7/18/2012 10:47:23 PM

"Nothing can top Continent...or can it? Prove me wrong TAS" - Continent sucked. I'm hoping for another Wormwood. Bring the hate.

anonymous 7/18/2012 10:51:22 PM

they're going to push the boundaries..... ....and use more than 1 string this time. They're going prog metal. 2 strings!!! Stoked

anonymous 7/18/2012 10:59:47 PM

Critics will be critics. Fans will be fans. Points will be made. Points will be made in argument against others' points made. It's cool. I'm just ready for more TAS.

fourthgradecocktease 7/18/2012 11:17:48 PM

now shitty moshcore bands will know how to change their band's sound yet again

anonymous 7/18/2012 11:34:47 PM

Haha damn people. You don't like TAS? Well, don't worry about them. You want to hear/see/feel/smell/taste something that is perfect in your opinion...? Make it yourself then. Anyway, new stuff from The Acacia Strain? Can't wait!!!

anonymous 7/18/2012 11:35:33 PM

Any gay complaining about the acacia strain being on rise is a moron with no insight on the music industry. Did you read and sign their contract? No you didn't, your a troll who plague this site with idiotic antics. Please do everyone a favor go complain about verse not being edge on the B9 board and not waist your time Here

anonymous 7/18/2012 11:45:48 PM

Wow, what a gay site. Webby takes down the board for hatred of chelsea grin, and gives it back so the trolls can swaggle from the acacia strain's tiny c-ck. LAME. band has always sucked, has always been overrated.

slut 7/18/2012 11:49:29 PM

Want to catch a snake but can't afford to reanimate Barry White's corpse? Play the new record from The Acacia Strain! Out now on Rise.

anonymous 7/18/2012 11:51:29 PM

"AOTY especially with DL producing" Yeah, I bet it sounds GREEEAT. "Probably the biggest band in hardcore right now" You're kidding? Notice people defending this band have posts riddled with spelling errors?

anonymous 7/19/2012 12:10:03 AM

Franki Palmieri's flat-brimmed hat collection is stoked

anonymous 7/19/2012 12:47:28 AM

their best record is the dead walk btw. the downhill move started with continent and wormwood only made it worse.

anonymous 7/19/2012 2:55:36 AM

^ I disagree. Each album has been better than the one that proceeded it.

xburnfacex 7/19/2012 5:04:27 AM

xburnfacex is stoked

populationcontrol 7/19/2012 5:52:57 AM

Bands who have 30+ shirts in their merch store are stoked.

bees 7/19/2012 6:03:02 AM

"I disagree. Each album has been better than the one that proceeded it." I know people have different opinions, but how the fck can you say Wormwood was better than Dead Walk and/or Continent? I can't wrap my head around that.

anonymous 7/19/2012 6:37:24 AM

soooo another 50 minutes of downtuned palm-mutes and breakdowns. what musicians, artists of their modern craft/

xburnfacex 7/19/2012 7:10:37 AM

^^I mean, if you think about it, they kind of are. Post a video of your band, gay. Let's see how talented you are.

anonymous 7/19/2012 7:10:48 AM

How was Wormwood better? One word... Impaler :)

xburnfacex 7/19/2012 7:28:34 AM

^^ Probably because that's the only song you know off the album.

anonymous 7/19/2012 7:35:03 AM

why all you little pssys get so worked up over a fcking label stfu man.

RickRock 7/19/2012 7:41:57 AM

Will lift weights to this.

anonymous 7/19/2012 8:21:08 AM

The Acacia Strain is awesome, but seriously fck Wormwood (except the album artwork).

big_metal_al 7/19/2012 9:09:49 AM

Wormwood wasn't bad, their previous efforts were just way better. stoked to hear this new release.

anonymous 7/19/2012 9:43:17 AM

Beautiful clean-toned melodies are stoked!

anonymous 7/19/2012 11:12:53 AM

This band is terrible. Youre all gays.

anonymous 7/19/2012 11:51:46 AM

For fans of The Acacia Strain check out these bands, you'll dig them as well: Black Veil Brides Attila Brokencyde We Came As Romans iwrestledabearonce Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! Miss May I Memphis May Fire Abandon All Ships Asking Alexandria Of Mice & Men Bring Me The Horizon

anonymous 7/19/2012 11:56:12 AM

"The Respect Issue" is by far the best material The Acacia Strain has put out.

marching_band_rules 7/19/2012 11:57:07 AM

best/most fun record is dead walk. just write 2 and a half minute songs like you used to

anonymous 7/19/2012 12:09:18 PM

bastufft dweller mosh

anonymous 7/19/2012 12:10:59 PM

these guys are so sick. best hardcore band ever. its like whitechapel and emmure had a baby, fck the h8ers

anonymous 7/19/2012 12:16:36 PM

People didn't like wormwood? That was their best since 3750 easy.

anonymous 7/19/2012 12:41:11 PM

Dudes who worshiped this band two years ago, but now are too hxc are not stoked.

anonymous 7/19/2012 1:10:08 PM

3750,The Dead Walk, and Continent were great records. Continent is the best one IMO but Wormwood sucked ass it was super boring. Only the hills have eyes sounded anything remotely close to old records

anonymous 7/19/2012 2:24:51 PM

gay album name fits gay band

anonymous 7/19/2012 4:03:35 PM

Fans of Messhugah who say The Acacia Strain copy of them can go cry to their mum upstairs from their bastufft.

anonymous 7/19/2012 4:53:48 PM

Worst band ever. Stop please.

anonymous 7/19/2012 5:08:24 PM

Are you even in a fcking band gay? then shut the fck up.

anonymous 7/19/2012 5:15:54 PM

Breakdowns for 30 minutes. I bet they spent so much time writing this one..

anonymous 7/19/2012 5:44:58 PM

Are you even in a fcking band gay? then shut the fck up. xSICK POST BROx

anonymous 7/19/2012 6:21:51 PM

anonymous6 hours ago "The Respect Issue" is by far the best material The Acacia Strain has put out. hahahahahahahahahahahahaha BACKED.

anonymous 7/19/2012 6:39:29 PM

Dead Walk=best

anonymous 7/19/2012 7:36:15 PM


IG88 7/19/2012 9:50:04 PM

"So stoked!" -complete fcking gays, circa 2012

anonymous 7/20/2012 2:29:02 AM

^ Lol. Doesn't mean you're not a gay though. gay

anonymous 7/20/2012 11:22:51 AM

"Nothing can top Continent...or can it? Prove me wrong TAS" - Continent sucked. I'm hoping for another Wormwood. Bring the hate. [2]

anonymous 7/20/2012 3:18:55 PM


anonymous 7/20/2012 3:35:01 PM

ohhhhh breasts

anonymous 7/20/2012 3:37:12 PM

Wormwood is what made me finally like them. To each their own.

anonymous 7/20/2012 3:40:41 PM

Hopefully DL starts playing live again. The fill in is terrible and needs to take that gay fro back to the disco era.

anonymous 7/20/2012 7:42:54 PM

Yawn. Will illegally download, just to delete it.

anonymous 7/20/2012 11:55:34 PM

Don't even bring up Emmure in a TAS post. They did 5 too many albums. Vincent isn't whining about any ex-girlfriends, he's planning to kill them.

anonymous 7/21/2012 4:35:44 AM


anonymous 7/21/2012 11:47:00 PM

Heavy band, real dudes, stoked for the new album. I can agree on everyone saying Wormwood wasn't their best.. It took a while for me to dig it, but it eventually grew on me. Everything sounds better live off of Wormwood because their in Drop A instead of Drop Meshuggah.

anonymous 7/22/2012 2:52:05 AM

Is their actual guitarist going to tour with them this time around?

anonymous 7/22/2012 11:54:06 AM

Band has sucked since Dead Walk.

anonymous 7/22/2012 1:19:41 PM

the dead walk was and always will be their best album. period. TAS found their niche with that album... and proceeded to say fck it lets turn into a djent band. sad story

anonymous 7/22/2012 2:19:51 PM

At least the record will be good. Terrible live band.

anonymous 7/22/2012 4:40:10 PM

DL Whoglee?

anonymous 7/23/2012 8:00:14 AM

Silly name

anonymous 7/23/2012 12:55:30 PM

Hope Vincent brings back the highs from 3750. And I don't wtf that statement means ^^ I've been following TAS from the beginning and I though Wormwood was dope

anonymous 7/23/2012 6:00:52 PM

Wormwood was dope as fck!

anonymous 7/25/2012 6:59:25 AM

@bees people didn't like Wormwood? I thought it was great. maybe not quite as good as Continent, but still pretty awesome
