I really like them, but I've missed my chance to see them twice now. Annoying.

Can't decide whether I like them or not. Judging from that one video, it's just a screamo band using a synth loop in the background and not really fusing it in that well. I'd need to hear more, maybe they make better use of the electronica in other songs. But for now they get a resounding "meh" rating.

If I were to ever get off my ass and learn to play guitar and some other instrument, I'd make some kind of electronic/metal band. Electrometal if you will. That sounds like a bad idea...

I've heard a bit of these guys, and they seem pretty awful. The metally/rocky part of the music is annoying as...A7X (hardcore wooo yeah!), and the trancey stuff doesn't really stand out that much...

What are they then? Suckcore?

Well, I'll admit I was fond of Beast And the Harlot. Most of their other stuff annoys me.

The gerne you're looking for is either metal, or hardrock. (Atleast their new album, ' City of evil ' )

Even though they look totally emo and gay-ish, i still think they are an awesome band who should not be talked down to, as most people do and other people tend to do it aswell to fit in the general, a7x disliking crowd, likely to be yourself.

Then again, that's what forums are for; opinions. If everyone's posts purely consisted of solid, unrefutable facts, it would be a pretty silent place. =P

Trance

okay

Hardcore

cool

Screamo something.

INTEREST LOST

Just kidding, I'll check them out anyway.

--

EDIT: The synth and the instruments clash hideously. The screaming and and the synth clash pretty badly too.

Symphonically speaking, this is horrible, though they did improve slightly in the second half (probably because they screamed a lot less).
