    A Well Thought Tragedy




    MySpace
    PureVolume

    What can I say. I love my Metalcore, and AWTT is a solid band that is melodic and has solid breakdowns. And this is one band I will make sure I pick up the actual CD for my collection.

    I know real HXC is about teh vinyl but, I gotz no record player...

    Funny that a description of the band is on Urban Dictionary
    In what is becoming a monotonous scene of breakdown anthems, AWTT bring their hearts to the table over and over again. Every-time blowing minds more than the time before. AWTTís love and appreciation for metal is reflected in their killer riffs and melodic choruses. After that complete brutality takes over. Having been compared to bands such Dead to Fall, As I Lay Dying, I Killed The Prom Queen, and other uprising bands in the metal-core scene, A Well Thought Tragedy is guaranteed to reel you in like a blood thirsty barracuda. Unlike a lot of metal-core bands out today, these fellers break the mold introducing head bopping riffs that even the inexperienced of this style can appreciate. AWTT brings elements of every style from old/new school hardcore, big hair/groove metal, to just plain out brutal...with a hint of punk rock here and there. Be prepared for a new sound in this "every band sounds the same" era. Seriously, you won't be disappointed.



    Dying For What We Love
    Track Listing:
    1. Exhale
    2. Failure Was Designed To Destroy
    3. Further Down The Spiral We Come Crashing
    4. Murder With Your Eyes
    5. A Quiet Separation

    Horse The Band is pretty badass.

    Killswitch Engage.

    HeavyHeavyLowLow - Fairly decent...

    The Devil Wears Prada - They have a few killer tracks.

    Old Underoath is greatness- Acts of Depression and Cries of the past are the best CD's by far. The new screamer has a better voice unfortunately IMO. Others like the old singer.

    Old Atreyu is good too. The new CD is pure balls though

    If anybody here has a high appreciation for progressive metal and hardcore you absolutely have to pick up the new BTBAM album Colors. It is without a doubt one of the most flowing, rythmic, well orchestrated example of brutal yet subtle musical compilations I've ever come across in this genre.. a truly impressive piece of work and I highly recommend you give it a shot!!! (and no I don't work for Victory ) Do it... hey, DO IT.

    I wasn't going to list these guys, but The Bled have their new album on their MySpace page.

    Wiki:The Bled is a post-hardcore band from Tucson, Arizona. The band members united over their love of music and their desire to get out of Tucson. They formed in 2001 and soon established a name for themselves in their home town, playing many shows and often to sold out audiences. Eventually they signed to Fiddler Records and released one album through them - Pass The Flask. The band toured extensively in support of this album. However, before recording started for their second album, original bass player, Mike Celi, left the band. He was replaced by Darren Simoes. The band is currently signed to Vagrant Records and through them, released their second album, Found In The Flood in 2005. They have toured alongside such bands as Slipknot, Alexisonfire, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Thrice, Midtown, The Used, My Chemical Romance, Underoath, Senses Fail, and AFI. The Bled's very first headlining tour was shared with Protest the Hero of Canada. They will soon embark on the Projekt Revolution tour, along with My Chemical Romance, Linkin Park, HIM, and others.


    INFO:Silent Treatment is the third studio album from Tucson, AZ's The Bled. This time the band moved up to Baltimore, MD to work with producer extraordinaire Brian McTernan (Thrice, Circa Survive, From Autumn To Ashes). This record is more of a retreat back to their earlier recordings, which featured stripped-down, raw energy and massive rif***e. Despite that, the band also found ways to use some of their experimental edge to create some of the most unique songs found in heavy music today.

    TRACK LISTING:
    1. Shadetree Mechanics
    2. You Should Be Ashamed Of Myself
    3. Threes Away
    4. Asleep On The Front Lines
    5. Platonic Sleepover Massacre
    6. Starving Artiste
    7. The Silver Lining
    8. Some Just Vanish
    9. Breathing Room Barricades
    10. Beheaded My Way
    11. My Bitter Half
  10. Running with the Big Boys

    Ligeia


    [media=600]http://www.ferretstyle.com/assets/ligeia/ligeia_logo.jpg[/media]

    MySpace

    PureVolume

    Been listening to my iTunes on shuffle and this band popped up, along with many others...........

    Solid MetalCore with a Melodic edge. Reminds me of 12 Tribes, Misery Signals, etc...

    BAND HISTORY
    LIGEIA was formed by Keith Holuk and Ryan Ober in December 2003. After many line up changes, Ligeia formed into its finest with the addition of Bryan Forbes and Jake Lawrence. Ligeia has been touring DIY since they started and played just over 300 shows in 2006. They have raged across the U.S. and Canada many times as well as pulling stunts in the U.K., Belgium, and The Netherlands. They have toured with such bands as Remembering Never, Misery Signals, Haste The Day, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, Ion Dissonance, Ringworm, August Burns Red, Ed Gein, From A Second Story Window, and played countless shows with many other awesome bands. Their debut record "Your Ghost is a Gift" was recorded in December 2004 by Ken Susi of Unearth and released in late March 2006 on Ferret Music.

    So what the hell is Ligeia anyways? Pretend to care now because you won't once you actually find out. Believe it or not it's a girl's name, imagine that, a hot, dead female. Well they don't really know if she was hot or not, but we can all just pretend. It's also a story by a dead author, Edgar Allen Poe. He married his cousin, and the band thinks that's pretty cool.


    For all you cats in MA looks like they are putting on a free show, so check them out.

    Arch Enemy <--- Heard of them but really haven't made my playlist

    Chimaira <---- A solid metal band. I need to pick up their latest release
    Dry Kill Logic <---- Just heard these guys a couple months ago, but haven't listed to them all that much, but they sound pretty solid
    Hatebreed <---- One of my all time favorites. I belive they are in process of writing another album
    Heaven Shall Burn <---- Some great German metal. I am sure you have heard of Caliban, if not check them out. Looks like they have a new album coming out.
    Illdisposed <---- Never heard of them
    Spineshank <--- Good metal band, I like the lead singer's new band a lot better though Silent Civilian

    Ankla - "latin metal core," or in other words, makes me want to start a Tango Pit.

    Illdisposed - Danish Death Metal. Need I say more?
    Ankla sounds pretty dope. The remind me of Ill NiŮo, even Before you said Latin Metal...

    Illdisposed sounds pretty sick. Thanks for your contribution.

    Arise and Ruin





    Solid MetalCore. Remind me a lot of Unearth, but heavier and tougher.

Having completed tour dates with Between The Buried And Me, The Red Chord, Cephalic Carnage and August Burns Red, Arise and Ruin are set to take their brand of Slayer, Darkest Hour, and At the Gates-inspired mayhem to international audiences.

    That is another solid band that actually became harder and heavier then when they originally came out around the same time as Poison The Well, Atreyu, which the latter bands actually turned soft...

    Did you know xBishopx is a side-project of a few band members of RN?

    Epicure is still one of my favorite songs of all time. Harvest was a solid band but the last few tracks of Transition, you can tell they were getting ready to make a transition in their style.

    I just checked out harvest off the trustkill website, good stuff, I think a lot of newer bands should take note from this kind of stuff instead of making all the pretentious garbage that's saturated hardcore nowadays. I think someone whose been around for a while can tell which bands have a legitimate honest expression of aggression and which guys are just looking for more 15 year old myspace friends. Man seeing some posers going "BREE BREE PINCH HARMONIC BLAST BEATS BREE BREE CRAPPY BREAKDOWN" just pisses me off. I really hope there's still at least some younger kids that are into hardcore that believe in honesty, expression, and meaning as a requirement for a good band so they can carry on the legacy after this stupid faux death metal trend comes to an end, maybe I oughta just start a band and show these kids what's up. Sometimes I just wanna go out to a job for a cowboy show and beat up as many of these pansies as possible, but as it would be I have better things to do.

    Also I don't know if it's been mentioned on here before but what was that one trustkill band with the really fat guy for a frontman? Man those guys could rip it up!

    Harvest

    Also check out Brother's Keeper:

    Brother&#39;s Keeper

    Skycamefalling is an old school Ferret band that broke up in 2003, again this was before Ferret blew nuts as a lot of other labels do as well.
