From a creative standpoint, perhaps. But I like my screaming. Like I said though, for this particular band I wasn't really complaining after a few listens.

Thanks. Haha. It was hard for me to think of a good, complex band to relate these guys to, so I just went with that, because I mean, what's more complicated and awesome than that?

No problem man, and I haven't taken a real close listen to it yet, but through the first play through I thought it was great. They have a real unique sound, and their guitarist is very impressive and their singer has one big set of pipes. As for the screaming, I only really enjoy Winston McCall-esque (mainly mids and lows) or melodic hardcore shouting [The Ghost Inside], which is hard to come by in most post-hardcore bands, and I thought it's a real nice change of pace for a post-hardcore type band to not scream, because in my opinion, it would've given them a generic sound. Also Since 1776 is a straight up jam and my favorite track.

And my man...don't be afraid to like ATDR, I know people give them a lot of shit, but they're soooooo catchy and were one of the first bands to fuse pop-punk and hardcore, which are probably my two favorite genres.
