    SOOO much salt being poured into these waters... If people ACTUALLY listened to Breakcore you'd noticed that he sounds completely different to Venetian Snares. But his sound is of high quality, therefore, saying he "sounds like VSnares" is nothing more than a compliment more than anything. As for the dissing because he makes other music just shows that you're all idiotic, you can hate his other music, but don't hate him because he makes one type of music that you LIKE and another that you hate. The dudes got diversity, probably more than you.

    He's making dance music under the name of "Slimes" now for anybody that's interested.

    I really don't understand where people see the connection with Venetian Snares. Flowers sounds like an opposite spectrum of breakcore from Venetian Snares.

    I've listened to Venetian Snares and I've listened to this dude and I seriously wonder what the fuck you're all talking about. It's like a bunch of people started accusing the Beatles of ripping off Elvis... Because they also used guitars. I don't think much of breakcore, I don't really like VS, I think this guy's stuff is just okay; but I'm prepared to defend him just because you're all such raging morons.

    It just sounds fucking good, who cares it may look like Venetian Snares, who cares he belongs to another band you guys seem to hate ? Just love these tracks, and that's all.

    I agree with bryce there, and I have one thing to add, for the people hating solely based on his other band: Love this music for what it is <3. Why does it matter what other music he makes?

    any bro know what his status is as acrnym nowadays? Any new stuff being thrown around in the underground or just pure indie now? :/

    lol the thing is very few artists can compare to vsnares. there s a lot of bullshit noise labeled as breakcore which makes him stand out. now i dont feel like acrnym's tracks are similar to any vsnares tracks. the fact that it feels like they could have been composed by vsnares himself is nothing else but a compliment. its sad to read so much dissing when there is so little competition already.

    Eh, it's good, but it sounds a LOT like VC. Also, the fact that the artist is in some indie band doesn't mean his breakcore is any better or worse
