    @Lextasys: Don't take anything JamesPhillips70 says seriously, he's a closed-minded entitled crybaby whose butt is always ruptured.

    Simply It does not matter what they play if you like it you do, if you do then you do. the band can´t bow to few fans who want it to be something that they are not. Peoples anyway these days try too much prove something to others, in otherwords actually nobody really is not right in these things but try to raise their opinion above the other. Anyhow it sort of feels like its in deep of human´s natural nature to label/to be more right than the other, sort of almost same as ignorance, they talk without knowing the whole idea but still think they are more right than the other. Anyhow I think it´s not needed to tell more.

    No, they aren't the same band as Creatures, they've evolved and "Reincarnated" themselves into their true potential, making a sound distinctly of their own, regardless of what people think or the music trends of current day. MIW is doing something that has needed to be done for a long time, and as every other band sounds more and more redundant and exactly like every other band, this band are taking the first step, not afraid what the crowd thinks, and being music artists as opposed to music "players". Bravo boys, well done. Their albums are getting better and better.

    I don't think M.I.W will ever return to the glory days of Creatures, it kills me a little inside, That's in my top 3 Post-Hardcore albums of all time, the Ultimate album and then they just flush themselves down the pan, the past 2 albums have been dire and will be instantly forgotten in less time than you can say "this sucks"

    Recently, I've actually preferred the albums they've released since Creatures but I think everything this band does is great. I've never really cared much for Manson or music like that but I like the way MIW takes that and combines it with their metalcore sound.

    It's already October, so I'm thinking Reincarnate is the best album of the year for me.

    Seems kind of goofy to say "this band died in 2010" because they didn't go on to make identical albums. =P I really loved both Creatures and Infamous though they were very different and I'm happy to see them still at it and willing to evolve and experiment. The vast majority of the bands I listen to have been around for DECADES and every single album isn't a personal favourite and that's okay, a little bit of music that doesn't do it for me has never brought down the rest of a band's catalog. Besides, music is subjective. I can't wait to see what they continue to produce and hope they follow their hearts as artists whether or not it suits me personally or makes every single fan happy. It's be really monotonous if they just did the same thing over and over again, anyways.
