    @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 mean, this thing is not bad, it's good metalcore actually, but I do not get the 'djent' tags or the comparisons to Erra, Elitist or Auras.

    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

    The opening vox on "If He Dies, He Dies" reminds me so much of Deftones. Love it.
