02:37 - !J.O.O.E.! Hey ZÖN, I found your stuff last week actually, really nice, especially with headphones.
02:00 - mz also, I have not heard your music yet, but experimental/ drone/ dark ambient fits my taste prefectly.
01:56 - mz on a serious note, the majority of active users are into black, death, doom and sludge it seems.
01:54 - ZÖN Are there any interested in blackened power metal though. I can get on board with that
01:52 - mz @ zon: welcome to the MS. We have a nice comunity of small number of people who are active, and the atmosphere here is much more civilized than MA+ there are not many active users interested in power metal, which is very good :D
01:38 - Maco Call me Maco Trunk. Don't tell it to my man Karl.
01:35 - Maco I'm like Eddie Trunk, main difference is that I don't believe good music died in the 90's.
Writing a review for August Burns Red is a bit of a challenge. It's not so much that their sound is difficult to describe. Rather, the group's extremely consistent output of technically-inclined metalcore lends itself to redundancy from reviewing one album to the next. But while it may not be the band's best album (an accolade I award to Constellations), Rescue And Restore is definitely their most melodic and different.
I've been a fan ever since I first heard the greatness of Constellations, and then picked up Messengers. Leveler was just alright for me, but I'm looking forward to hearing this record, I'm sure it will be great.
It is rare for a straight-up metalcore album to be good these days. August Burns Red is really the last of these groups I think can still bring it (now that As I Lay Dying is dead). This is their most melodic album yet, too.
