Late Night Thoughts: When I Was Your Age
Late Night Thoughts: When I Was Your Age
02/03/11 at 01:30 AM by Adam Pfleider
So, maybe I made a comment today that excited you, made you want to send me death threats or actually feel bad for making - but no. Oh no. I've stated this fact many times before, and I will forever stick by it.

Now, without sounding too old for many of you, or hipster-hysterical to most of you, I remember the first time I heard Underoath. I hated it. The first time I heard Norma Jean. I hated it. Then there were some songs that really lured me in. Before I knew it, I bought Bless the Martyr and The Changing of Times. It took some time to appreciate both of them. So when Dallas Taylor left, I was told things would be okay, since the screamer for This Runs Through...[read more]

Hmmm...interesting thought. I can't agree with it, however, since I really do enjoy They're Only Chasing Safety, and there have been a myriad amount of carbon-copy bands who tried to make that sound their own. Also, I'm surprised you didn't enjoy Bless the Martyr. "Face:Face" is probably the best metallic hardcore song I've ever heard.

not when I first heard it. I do enjoy it now, but I think that will stand as a different band since Josh left. The funny thing was, Bless the Martyr was more of a reference to a lot of the solid state bands that came after Norma Jean - even Underoath to an extent...that album was THE album for a lot of my friends since The Moon is Down...

Oh definitely, same here. During high school there seemed to be a transition of sorts into heavy music. I believe bands like Norma Jean, and especially Underoath, made it more mainstream. I will still to this day say, though, that The Moon is Down is my favorite record of all-time, and has been since 2002.

josh scogin is the man, everything he releases is awesome, his lyrics are sick and his screams are such full of passion, he even has a nice soft side (a rose by any other name), and then live he just has so much presence. i dont listen to a whole lot of hardcore music but josh scogin is by far one of the best in the genre.
