I cheekily smacked both the bassists and rhythm guitarists bums at the Brighton gig.

Who wants to touch me?

The new album is actually fucking fantastic. I can't believe how it manages to be so epic and technical, yet stay so catchy and melodic. No band I've ever heard have done that so well before. They're kind of to punk and hardcore what Opeth are to metal. But on a much bigger scale I think. And they're so clever too. The lyrics and the concepts behind them. Awesome band.

I can see how people don't like the vocals but it just makes it a bit more powerful for me, and maybe a tad more cheesy (which as long as it doesn't get excessive isn't a bad thing) than purely screamed vocals would be.
I listen to Fortress whenever I'm in the gym nowadays as it just really fires me up. Bone Marrow turns me into some sort of super-human being.

i gave the new album a quick listen the other day, but haven't given it a proper chance yet. i loved 'kezia' though, this band should be much bigger really. if rags like kerrang stopped filling their pages with elliott minor and other such shit, bands with actual talent might get noticed.

Didn't even know they'd put out a new album. Kezia is the shit though, concept albums ftw.

I would have thought that this would be the type of band Kerrang would jump all over? Maybe it's changed a little since I was a wee nipper though...

ach, Elliot Minor piss me off a treat. Wankest thing since Kerrang! TV kept playing Sonne by Rammstein for 8 years.

Where did all the honesty in metal/rock mags go? was there ever any? I can't for one moment believe that a truly dedicated journalist would feel good praising the fuck out of bands like Disturbed and Bring Me The Horizon.

init, i can't understand how anyone would like such bands, much less encourage others to buy their records. elliot minor actually make me throw things at the radio. them and enter shikari. fucking awful shit.
