Parkway Drive's "Horizons" is an awesome metalcore CD. That's all there is to it. Really pumped me up at the gym tonight. Adam D from Killswitch Engage produced this album and pretty much anything he produces is golden. This is another band that I'll be putting at the top of my list. For fans of As I lay Dying, Bury Your Dead, and All That Remains.
Oh, Sleeper's album, "When I am God" is another good metalcore/screamo CD. They have a fine balance between singing and screaming and the vocals are pretty decent. I'd compare them most to Underoath, but I'd take Underoath over these guys at this point. Still a solid debut album.
I really liked Demon Hunter's "The Triptych" and "Storm the Gates of Hell" is no exception. One gripe I do have is that there isn't a huge variation between the two album's. Just like their last album they have songs where they have a combination of screaming and singing and then they have very melodic ballads. Don't get me wrong, Ryan Clark is a wonderful singer, but I'd like to see some change. Right now it seems like they are torn between being metal and hard rock. Overall, an enjoyable CD to listen to.

I have been to garages, warehouses, junk yards, and various of other places you could have a show, but I have yet been to a show in the woods

Anyone heard of He is Legend. I liked, oh two songs off of their last CD. I am Hollywood was their best song (listen to it), then they have all these other crappy poppy tracks. They have a new singer now who is awful.

Well I just saw the new Throwdown video
None of the original members are in the band, which explains why they sounds like crap.

Rise Records is on the rise...
INFO: For The Fallen Dreams hail from the blue collar town of Saginaw, Michigan, with their humble upbringing being displayed in the music they put out. These boys bring some of the most brutal yet melodic music today, with "Changes" showcasing their honest and angry attitude, appealing to fans of Bury Your Dead, Misery Signals and Emmure.
In today's hardcore/metal scene, it's easy for anyone to become jaded by the constant clones of, what is basically, the same band with hundreds of different names. We've all heard it; the same riff accompanied by the growling vocals and simultaneous "chug-chug" breakdowns. So, we wait and maybe search the music section on Myspace for a breath of fresh air. Thankfully, hidden in the obscure depths of the internet are bands that give this genre hope, and if you look hard enough, you can find them.
One of these noteworthy bands is Lansing, Michigan's well kept secret, For the Fallen Dreams. Formed in late 2003 and recently signing with Rise Records (The Devil Wears Prada, Drop Dead Gorgeous) in the summer of 2007, these young men show incredible promise through songs that showcase poignant and powerful writing, both lyrically and musically while still staying in touch with their hardcore/metal roots. Their music displays a well-done balance of metal and melody. Guitarists, Jim Hocking and Jason Spencer show a variety of ranges while shifting back and forth between hard-hitting metal riffs and some rather melodic guitar lines. Given their ability to draw the listener in with brutally honest lyrics about life, relationships, and struggle, the band shows solidarity for their future as a band to be taken seriously.
With 2008 shaping up to be a pretty big year for For the Fallen Dreams, I think we'll be hearing a lot more from them. Chad, Jason, Jim, Joe and Andrew certainly seem to be on their way to setting the bar for the future of hardcore.
INFO: Springfield, MO's Here I Come Falling have brought their melodic, yet punishing, Christian metalcore to a lot of ears in a very short time, playing Cornerstone Festival and doing their fair share of touring over the last year. Their sound takes punishing metallic riffs and integrates sung melodies to create a sound simlar to that of The Devil Wears Prada, Underoath and Norma Jean.
[here i come falling] is a 6 piece Christian rock band.
We don't claim to be perfect, or even close to it.
We just love playing music and going insane in the
name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Our main goal is to let the people we encounter know that
Jesus loves them and died for them so that they may
have eternal life through Him.
We will show you love and respect
no matter what your beliefs are.
We would also love to talk to you about ours.
We are just 6 normal, down-to-earth guys
with an incredible passion for music.
Talk to us, we would love to get to know you.
Thank you and God bless. <3

I picked up The Serpent by Still Remains today. Their vocal and guitar work is very solid on the album...it's a bit cleaner and better produced than the last. I like so far...

Anyone like The Warriors? They kinda remind of Comeback Kid, but more intense and varied vocals.

KEEP IT HARDCORE!
