    Also no one fucking cares about your genre sob stories so bitching about whether this is metal or hardcore or how you think it's "a lowtuned harcdcore band with djtrendy djent riffz!!!111" is just going to make you look like a moron.

    I really wish the next release will be more in line with The Royal Thousand. PWF is just boring to me. Yes, heavy as fuck but boring. How to survive suicide is actually the only song I like on it.

    "It sounds like a hardcore band with low tuning and with overdone trendy djent syncopated riffs" Considering the guitar tone was also prevalent in the guitarist's old band, safe to say they aren't really jumping on trends. Just coincidentally making music that is also trendy at the moment.

    @PlagueSounds: Sounds way closer to hardcore. There isn't a single metal riff in their songs. Being heavy doesn't means it's metal. Lots of Grindcore is heavy as fuck, but still not metal in the slightest.

    @TheWatcho: so GC should be categorized as hardcore? lol that's even less accurate. Not that I give a shit about genres anyway.

    Can I ask how is this band even considered metal? or worse... prog? It sounds like a hardcore band with low tuning and with overdone trendy djent syncopated riffs, minimal metal influence (I would say no metal influence at all). Why in the US every modern hardcore band is being labelled as metal? Why? Both genres are so different, is ridiculous that there are people confusing them like if they were the same. Not prog (overdone 4/4 syncopation and atmosphere is not prog, the fuck), not even metal... why? almost every hardcore and hardcore-rooted metalcore are being labelled as metal, I just can't understand how is that even possible. Might as well say that Nickelback is metal.

    I agree with blue-sky-noise. I really love Glass Cloud, but a Tony Danza combeack, with a full line up would be the best thing could happen
