    But Alesana is not only a "melodramatic cry for attention". They create art, and they are way more better than any other band in the -core scene in general.... [2]

    "ipowers: it wasnt even a part of the triology... probably wrote this in a very short time to give the fans so that they wont waiting for so long... new album will be better i think" Let's hope so :)

    @bobo9390: Most people are just really fucking dumb and rely too much on other people's opinions to try to fit in. Yeah, I can definitely get down with stuff like Killswitch Engage, Unearth, Converge, Dillinger Escape Plan etc even a lot of death metal but I enjoy "pussy shit" like Alesana, Blessthefall, Silverstein and so on just as much. Just like what you like.
