Scene death-metallers doing a cover of 'Engine no. 9'! I don't know whether to laugh, cry or end it all......
they block myspace at work. nazis.
I'm on a Fact-Finding mission.
....I guess for death metal they are kinda simplistic, the singer looks like he should be in a hardcore band rather than a death metal band and (most importantly) the fact that they gained their initial notoriety from myspace. That might be what makes them 'scene'. Also - at their gigs its loads of 16 yr olds doing mosh moves, whereas at a 'real' death metal gig its older dudes with long hair headbanging.
I had the displeasure of looking for Metallica vinyl in Zavvi on Monday among hundreds of twats who had turned up for a Bring Me The Horizon signing...eurgh
Does it matter what their vocalist looks like? Surely it matters more what he sounds like?
They have toured fairly constantly for the last couple of years as well - I'm not disputing the role MySpace has played in their momentum-building, but they haven't sat on their laurels either.
Surely it is a Good Thing that teh kidz are coming to death metal shows? It stops them from going to Disturbed shows.
i actually like a bit of suicide silence every now and then and ive seen them live and they were surprisingly good. I was just trying to say why many consider them 'scene death metal' - i dont care if they are or not or whether they tour loads or whatever tbh!
^ This is my exact thoughts on them too.
I wasn't trying to be stand-off-ish, I was just makin' talk! ;)
Isn't out until Spring :(
