I totally agree, Jase. I first heard them on Madden, of all things... I think it was 2004/2005, and it was Bat Country. That song got me to buy their album and have been a big fan ever since

Undoubtedly one of the most creative bands today. Each album changes. Updates on the new album say that it may be a concept album, and it's supposed to get back to more "classic metal". They also want to go back to longer songs.

I heard a song called Unwind the Chainsaw streamed for like 10 minutes on their website before it was taken down. I haven't actually heard it and can't find it so I dunno if I believe it.

Call it what you like. They have fun playing it and aren't lumped into a specific genre, which was their goal. Waking the Fallen was great, but City of Evil just had so much more to it. The self titled album was "experimental" in their words. Not my favorite album, but not bad. Wanting to create accessible music isn't selling out if it's what you like.

I didn't say I didn't like it, they are a kick ass band still. They went away from their metal roots and went more towards mainstream rock, which is selling out to me. I still like their music. The Rev is one of my favorite drummers.

Thats how they used to sound Dimbee, just in case you haven't heard it before. I freakin love The Rev, he is beast.

This, however, might be one of the best music videos ever.

Unholy Confessions! Everyone agrees that their older heavier stuff is way better but their new stuff still kicks ass.

I think City of Evil is by far their best effort. It exceeds Waking the Fallen in every facet. In my opinion, of course.

Sieze the Day is their best song, and CoE is their best album. They're kind of generic though.

Generic? That's an, umm, interesting adjective to use...

Agreed. In fact, they may be one of the furthest things from generic. They are always changing.

Also, I have read online in certain places that the next album is going to be more classic metal. Apparently Shadows has said to expect longer songs on this album, and potentially a concept album might come out. They admitted that the Self Titled album was very experimental, and this album is going back to their roots and influences. Hopefully so.
