"heavy/catchy/rock"


anonymous 9/4/2013 10:02:40 AM

ShaolinLambKiller 9/4/2013 10:38:09 AM

gay fcking band no one cares about. choke on dicks.


Hibuddywazup 9/4/2013 10:59:14 AM

heavy/catchy/rock should tell you that this will suck.


anonymous 9/4/2013 11:00:23 AM

^ go back to your squaller, you mud huffing gay

Everytime I see Victory sign someone new, I think "Maybe this will be good". Every time I am wrong.


anonymous 9/4/2013 12:54:54 PM

in related news Islander has filed suit against Victory in an attempt to speed up time.


anonymous 9/4/2013 12:58:32 PM

Shitty third rate Deftones rip off


anonymous 9/4/2013 2:39:25 PM

I saw one of their first shows. It was fun but I'm sorry they got signed To Victory though.


anonymous 9/4/2013 2:58:05 PM

THIS SHIT SUCKS


marching_band_rules 9/4/2013 4:15:36 PM

so is this like mosh gays in dying local bands formed a nu-metal band? i can't hear it


thetowerofrome 9/4/2013 5:00:43 PM

This will be the new shit fad. Tuffcore 18 year olds thinking their making something progressive, but just ripping off deftones and doing it very awkwardly.


anonymous 9/4/2013 6:58:52 PM

Earth Crisis, Deadguy, Snapcase, Warzone, Strife... What the hell happened to that label?


anonymous 9/4/2013 7:42:41 PM

I live in Greenville, no one gives a shit about this band, how the fck did this happen?


anonymous 9/4/2013 8:01:36 PM

well HR really has lost it.


anonymous 9/4/2013 10:07:09 PM

Greenville represent! fck you haters. We're signed while you asshats type insults via Daddy's iPad. Forum flip fckers


conduit 9/5/2013 12:58:58 AM

Good to see nu metal back in full force.


anonymous 9/5/2013 4:57:18 AM

I don't get all the negative comments. You guys don't know where, or what, islander has done or been. When they won the Sumerian battle of the bands Sumerian records said they where a breath of fresh air. And to the guy from Greenville s.c. you obviously don't go to too many shows.


anonymous 9/5/2013 5:03:26 AM

If you're gunna censor sage, c*nt and gay. fcking censor Victory. The last three comments need to be hit with a brick.


anonymous 9/5/2013 7:13:25 AM

Hey Greenville represent guy... Typing here from my iPhone that I earned from a real job, runnin my own business doing something worthwhile and substantial. Your music sucks and doesn't mean you can't make money from that. Lady Gaga does it everyday.


anonymous 9/5/2013 9:14:38 AM

Glad to see this getting blasted on Lambgoat. This website blows, and so do most of it's readers. Go back to your black metal and straight edge hardcore, leave the real music for the real fans.


anonymous 9/5/2013 9:17:56 AM

sounds like BMTH. could be pretty awesome.


anonymous 9/5/2013 10:14:07 AM

I'm from Travelers Rest and I know these fäggots. Very gay, very dumb boys


anonymous 9/5/2013 10:31:06 AM

WE WILL GO BACK AND LISTEN TO OUR STRAIGHT EDGE HARDCORE! haha thank you :)


anonymous 9/5/2013 10:57:18 PM

this shows promise


anonymous 9/6/2013 12:02:57 AM

I'm from Greenville also... ... I am now ashamed to possibly be breathing in the same air as these gays.


bellini 9/6/2013 7:46:29 AM

anonymous 1 day ago Earth Crisis, Deadguy, Snapcase, Warzone, Strife... What the hell happened to that label? Don't forget Doughnuts


anonymous 9/7/2013 8:07:27 PM

Stray From The Path is stoked


anonymous 9/8/2013 7:21:29 PM

why is thoughtless, contrived horseshit getting any sort of recognition...

"Earth Crisis, Deadguy, Snapcase, Warzone, Strife... What the hell happened to that label?" I am with you. When I first started liking aggressive music, Victory was the shit. If this signing is horrible, what about A Day to Remember and Otep. Those bands are just as bad if not worse. Holy Shit.
