This has been my favorite band for the last 2-3 years, amazing live performance / amazing music / heaviest production i have ever heard.
Cannot wait for the new CD, any one else a huge fan?
Honostly, my MAIN problem with them is that its way too upbeat and frooty for me. I like me metal darker and more serious. Your perfectly welcome to love them, but i should be perfectly able to say that i dontDude, if tight guitar playing, amazing production, awesome songs and catchy riffs is horrible then ok :nuts:
I'm just kidding around dude, of course we all have different taste.Honostly, my MAIN problem with them is that its way too upbeat and frooty for me. I like me metal darker and more serious. Your perfectly welcome to love them, but i should be perfectly able to say that i dont
Have you heard the re-mixed/re-recorded version of Rareform with the new singer? Drums sound a lot better on it.I'm incredibly anxious to hear the follow up to their debut, esp after seeing this.
The only thing that killed the first album for me production wise was the kick drum was nothing but click. I cant even listen to it anymore because the kick is very distracting, kinda like early As I Lay Dying. I also could have done w/o a constant stream of cookie monster.
Ya know I've heard bits and pieces of it but I never got around to hearing it from beginning to end. Does seem like they address both of my issues with it tho! :metal:Have you heard the re-mixed/re-recorded version of Rareform with the new singer? Drums sound a lot better on it.
I took this video of their new song when my old band opened for them.

Eh, at the end of the day that is what they are... Another deathcore band along with the Meshuggah's, Within The Ruins, Veil of Maya's, Periph's etc etc. But hey, if you dig that genre, (which I do) what can be better than an endless amount of modified clones?I listened to that clip. It was alot better than what i was hearing in the preproduction vids, but still, i found it to just be a bit bland. I agree with angel on the bass drum to be annoying, and overall it just wasnt my thing.
Would i listen to it instead of a bunch of other stuff? Definatly, but would i actually listen to that on my own? No, i sounds kinda like a core clone band, but again, thats just my opinion.
That would be so much more awesome if it either had a real singer or no singer at all.The guitar in this song is a fucking workout and a half:

Their singer is really great (IMO), he might not be every ones "flavor"; but he adds a lot of energy to the music, and the timbre and aggression of his growls really puts the music into overdrive. The first time i saw After the Burial live it was like no other band i had ever seen in any genre of music, the whole venue went insane (from the back to the front of the venue with about 1000+ people present), there wasn't any one standing around just watching, literally every one was moving to the grove (really similar to when i saw Meshuggah play a few months ago) amazing energy to say the least, and the front man has a lot to do with it.That would be so much more awesome if it either had a real singer or no singer at all.
