    Saw these guys open for Slipknot...I enjoyed it because I like the band, but my god did the sound guy screw them over. I feel like sound guys at that venue make the openers sound worse on purpose, because the only time i've ever had an opener sound good there was Halestorm (opening for A7X and Disturbed). I was a bit disappointed, but it was still cool to see them

    Just got in these guys because of their song with Dani Filth (shoot me if you fucking want, I take no blame for having different tastes.) Though...their fanbase didn't took it too well I liked "Puppets 3" Anyway, I must say, they're quite impressive, I like their Industrial/Core sound, something most bands now a days don't really do [by this I mean, experiment.]

    One of my favorite bands ever, and I'm a death metal enthusiast. Out of all this decades Metalcore bands, this band stands out. Their blend of industrial and metalcore differentiates them from Asking Alexandria and all the other "scene core" bands that lack the passion these guys have

    Motionless In White – Break The Cycle крайне высоко оценена в критике и аналитике рок-песен, одна из лучших песен жанра!

    Jorgetime: They've changed a lot. They started as a Post-hardcore band with keyboards. Then creatures was a metalcore with keyboards, just like bleeding through. Now they have more Marilyn manson influence/industrial.

    surely, strange tags. for me, they're metalcore with some keyboards, just like bleeding through but more accessible

    Even HIM has more balls than this band honestly.

    Strange tags. Post hardcore? Screamo? Hardcore? for a band that mixes Metalcore with Industrial...

    Chris' clean vocals now sound like he's trying to be Breaking Benjamin's frontman, and of course he's still doing the Marilyn Manson thing. It's overall a very odd album to say the least.

    Seriously, you could take that exact same argument and turn it around to be about how When Love Met Destruction and Creatures are crap (they aren't, they're both great but bear with me here) since they were using an established sound (breakdown and synth heavy metalcore) that was already cemented by bands like The Devil Wears Prada and Sky Eats Airplane.
