    Nonsense! Completely different from the Unbeliever, far more depth, variation, better constructed song structures, more groove, more interesting moods and flow. The Unbeliever is a great album but is two dimensional in comparison to the new album which has more in every department in comparison to the Unbeliever, except for 'chug'. Truth.

    i would say a post metal feel. but definitely a really, really talented metalcore band. with all sorts of interests and influences.

    Truth is that Shaped by Fate play the true metalcore. Bullet for my Valentine, Avenged Sevenfold and thingies similar are... just not metalcore. Wal-mart-core, I'd say.
