    I'm not gonna lie, they do sound like a million other bands and this particular sound is, well, how can I put it, a little 'flavour of 2007'; but there is still an entire demographic of people (myself included) who follow the hardcore/post hardcore scene religuously; and for whome they will in time make a name for themselves amongst, provided they work hard and record a full-length record rather than just an EP or the occasional new song to put up on myspace (nobody ever gives a **** about bands who do this). Undoubtedly they are definately in the upper 10% of unsigned bands playing this style at the moment judging from that one song so i stay all the power to them. Will definately be looking out for them over the next few months!

    They have some really unique melodic lead work. They've got a good balance of heavy and ambient/melodic sounds, I like it a lot.

    lol no please don't do that haha, i'm sure they are well aware already and don't need my advice. Just a thought to you in case you were having any grandiose parental ideas of your son's band being the next metallica or something. Please don't take this as personal offence, just I have had way too much experience of parents being over zealous of their kids' bands/music and I know there are a load of people on here who are probably going to bash this band and the 'illegible lyrics'/'cookie monster vocals'/'incoherent guitar tones' etc; so figured you would value an opinion from someone who knows a little about the scene and understands it. But they do have serious talent, how long have they been together for?

    Have they heard of a band called "Architects"? Definitely a similar approach to this genre, which is a good thing. As for "being bashed on tone" I actually tend to like their sort of thing more than the un-washed bluesy masses that populate this forum.

    Seems very cool that you are so supportive of your son's music. He's a great drummer! I dug all of the playing and liked the song. However...................

    I guess I'm too old school but, I can't handle the screaming. I just find it a huge distraction from some really good playing. Put some actual singing on top of that music and I'd be VERY interested in hearing more.

    Sorry to be a bummer on all the positive comments. Just my opinion.

    I'll give your son some kudos! Not my cup of tea.........however I am a former pro drummer (now trying to learn guitar but spending too much time on forums instead of practicing). I played with the Jayhawks and Joe Henry and many others a while back (long while) and my drumming tastes are more Charlie Watts all the way through John Bohnam with some Jim Keltner on top but your son is very good. I played for 30 some years and I couldn't play that!. Then again I am too lazy to now anyway. I would just want to sit on the groove. Good luck to them and glad your are supporting them. I have been working with my son a bit and trying to be the Jack Black of the neighborhood in coaching the kids on the weekends. I think I like it more than they do. When they get a little stronger maybe I will post them but they are really young.

    Again great job band & dad!

    Happy Holidays to all proud Dads!

    The singer is too laid back. Hopefully your son will continue to play music and not be a burden on society like lobbyists or attorneys.
