    "I think they were heavily inspired by Deadwater Drowning cuz they sound almost identical" Revisionism at it's finest, Consumed By Your Poison and Syndicated Murderers came out before that and probably influenced Deadwater Drowning.

    I liked this band ever since I listened to 'em the first time around 2006 or so. I was listening to the metal channel on DirecTV at that time and I was blown away by 'em. I didn't properly get into them until this year.

    People still think Deathcore is hipster/trendy music? Is it still 2009 or something?

    "Why do they have to dress like that... jeez, they have very good music but look like fags in the main pic." Because they are comfortable with who they are and don't have to dress a certain way to fit into a specific *scene*.

    I've been impressed with these guys since the day I first listened to them off some music channel sometime around 2006 or 2007. I only have Day of Mourning so far. I'll get their other albums.
