06:05 - no one wonder if the majority of all different kind of satanists are metalheads
04:02 - Apothecary @Jaeryd, you're referring to LaVeyan Satanism, which is essentially Nietzsche/Ayn Rand type philosophy plus some Crowley - influenced ritual magick. Most theistic Satanists do not consider it as "real" Satanism
03:30 - no one because calling yourself a satanist sounds more kvlt
03:23 - Kuroboshi If you're not into the whole anti-christianity thing, it seems kind of stupid to call it satanism. Why not just say liberal atheism?
03:14 - Jaeryd Most Satanists I know are either moderately liberal or at least libertarian in nature.
02:59 - Jaeryd Some forms of Satanism aren't what I'd call stupid. They're basically just atheism with an added philosophical system that uses the rebellion of Satan as a metaphor.
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.
