Out of curiousity, if you were asked if Jim Florentine or Austrian Death Machine would be signed by Metal Blade, would you assume they would? Furthermore, The Goo Goo Dolls used to be on Metal Blade. Not to say that Attack Attack! is anything compared to any of them, but sometimes signings that don't make much sense just happen. Ask Limp Bizkit. Furthermore, why would they have to be Christian to sign to Ferret? Thats not a Christian label. Never has been.
So your asking if i would have guessed that the vocalist for As I Lay Dying (A signed Metal Blade band) would expect his own label to sign his side project..thats never happened before (Jonny Craig signed for his solo stuff, Of Mice & Men, Six Feet Under, Misery Index, etc.) so i guess you have a point there. But ya the Ferret thing was my mistake i was always under the impression they were a Christian label. Admittedly i over reacted but the point i was trying to get across was that Metal Blade is consist (more now than in the past) in staying true to the genre of music they sign, mainly Death Metal and Deathcore acts.

Jonny craig was never in of mice and men, six feet under, or misery index. He was in dance gavin dance, emarosa, and isles & glaciers. I'm well familiar with tim lambesis and as I lay dying and I get that that's why metal blade signed austrian death machine. Do you understand that you're contradicting yourself in saying that metal blade is very consistent in signing death metal, BUT they signed austrian death machine because of their vocalist? And yeah, I get that they basically sign similar bands, but as stated, they signed jim florentine (a comedian) and the friggin goo goo dolls. Yes I know they used to be a harder band than they are now, but they were never even close to death metal.

......Are you serious.... i didnt say Jonny Craig was in any of those bands.. Its indicated by the commas i used in the sentence. I was naming other bands that have been signed because they left their old bands and formed news and then their label would sign their new bands. And the Goo Goo Dolls were on back when like Metal Blade started. But ya back to the main point. Attack Attack probably follow ADTR where ever they go now that they are off of Victory. But regardless they will make money and continue to run their respective scene.

It's weird, but I honestly don't mind the Last Breath/All Alone sound, and I hope they at least mix songs like that with the sound of This Means War. Also, fun fact, Whiting said in an interview that they've recorded 3 songs in Drop F.
