Not looking for any responses to these but:

1) Rise is not a major label
2) This band never had "potential"
3) How can a label add to a band's music? They simply promote the music.
4) What relevance do their past allusions to Christianity have anything to do with this record?
5) Conforming to the "Rise way of writing songs"?

Terrible, terrible band. I've had this misfortune of seeing these guys live not too long ago. And really, of all people to be featured on this album, it has to be Rody of PTH? Disappointment.

Anyhoo, decent review sir.

I'll be honest and say I really liked this album. It was fun to listen to, and did it's most basic function; to simply entertain me. Yes, they do have major similarities to a slue of bands in the scene, you're right on with the "autotunecore" name calling. However they are the most electronic of all the bands I've heard and if that's something you like it's easy to be hooked. The only thing that really bothered me was the screamer. I just think he flat out sucks.

the "music" of this band is an impertinence. 59% is way too high. their auto-tuned chugga chugga shitcore makes me want to destroy something. can't believe they actually have fans. bands like this ruin the music scene.

You don't follow music much, do you?

1. Rise Records, while not a major label, has major label distribution through ADA which is owned by Warner (one of the "big four").
3, 4, 5. Labels are supposed to help bands better themselves and their sound and fully realize their potential. Rise Records has a big reputation for producing the same sounding bands which has given the above mentioned nick names like 'autotunecore' and 'genericore'. The simple lack of overall originality coming from a lot of Rise Records bands is enough to label them.

Sorry, I know you weren't looking for answers.

Did Rody Walker SERIOUSLY FUCKING DEGRADE HIMSELF and contribute to these talentless clowns' album?

I feel sick.
