We Came As Romans

Troy, Detroit MI, United States (2005 – present)

We Came As Romans is a modern metalcore band formed in 2005. Hailing from Troy, Michigan, We Came As Romans are pushing the envelope, combining influences such as the intertwined singing/screaming vocals of Underoath, the theatrical, orchestra-infused metal of Chiodos, the crushing breakdowns of The Devil Wears Prada and the positive lyrics of August Burns Red on their debut Equal Vision release, To Plant a Seed. Their second album, Understanding What We’ve Grown to Be, released in September 2011 featured a darker tone than their previous album while still maintaining the band’s overall theme of positivity and brotherhood. They announced that they will be releasing their third album titled Tracing Back Roots on July 23, 2013.

Signed to Equal Vision Records (announced April 16th) after being named Alternative Press’ “Best Unsigned Band” early 2009.

Dave Stephens – Vocals
Kyle Pavone – Vocals/Synth
Joshua Moore - Guitar
Lou Cotton – Guitar
Andy Glass – Bass

    What a garbage the self-titled is. Huh, thank god they have 'Understanding What We've Grown To Be', that one is great album.

    I agree that We Came as Romans have got progressively worse with each album. To Plant a Seed was fantastic, their second and third albums were okay and had some strong tracks. This one is just bland and boring. I haven't heard a single song that has grabbed me. Very disappointed. :(

    The Last WCAR sucked (and i spend money on it..), but this one is just horrible. They were such a great band with their first two Albums, and now... what Genre is it now? Pop?!

    I actually like the new album, if only for the fact that Dave sings a lot more and he's much better at it than Kyle.

    If these guys don't step it up and give us something worthwile with the new album, then I'm deleting all my scrobbles. They've only gotten progressively worse with each album and the new stuff sounds so bland it's not funny. Shame, cause To Plant A Seed was one of my favorite albums...

    @flori_hedig bei allem Respekt kann ich ihren Artikel zum neuen Album nicht zustimmen. Die Band spielt anstatt Post Hardcore nur noch Mainstream Rock. Stilwechsel gehören im Leben dazu und man muss sie trotzdem respektieren. Und obwohl ich mich vom Post Hardcore abgewandt habe konnte ich es nicht vermeiden, dass neue selbstbetitelte Album zu testen. Und dass obwohl ich schon nach Tracing Back Roots merkte dass ihre Zukunft den Kuschel Rock Fanatiker gehört. Allerdings ist das neue Album wie eintönige Musik in einer Endlosschleife. Unvergesslichen Riffs, abwechslungsreiche Vocals, gute Texte und fette Breakdowns aus alten Tagen sind leider Fehlanzeige. Understanding What We've Grown to Be ist bei weitem ihr bestes Album. Diese Atmosphäre macht jeden Song selbst nach 999999x mal zu einem ohrgasmischen Abenteuer und dass sage ich, obwohl keine Post Hardcore Bands in meiner Bibliothek zu finden sind. Dass neue Album verdient eher 8 Minus Punkte. Zudem ist es Kuschel Rock. Metalcore??? WTF

    Just compare A War Inside with Savior Of The Week. Gotta say more?

    So now it's WCAR without the classic WCAR trademarks such as progressive music, heavy orchestration and massively high vocals. And they simply selftitle it.

    There's a few awesome songs on there, but the slower ones just seem really bland. I don't care about the change of sound because I understand that that's a thing that has to happen. Music needs to be dynamic. That being said, this album is like a solid 5 to me.

    New album is solid. I know it's totally different than their usual stuff but I'm happy that the band tried to do something new and moved forward. Songs are still catchy, maybe with some new vibes but still.
