    Liking screamo music is like liking penis in the arse. Crossroads is an excellent album.

    Crossroads disappointed me, seemed to be missing the energy of their earlier albums.

    Yeah, it went completely under my radar until I happened to be on their Metal Archives page and found that they had something new

    Didn't even know that new album has been released! Extremely shitty promotion from Metal Blade. These days it's easier to be aware about "underground" releases and not about Metal Blade's new releases? Completely absurd...

    Mercyful Fate is one of my all time favorite bands, but the swedish portrait are hacks, I only acknowledge the screamo portrait as being real...
