Ya it kinda sucks. I think I may just have to buy this on iTunes. I don't think my local Christian store will have it.

It's a decent cd. I havent listened much so my opinion will probably change, and ill like it more. But until then...the vocals are ridiculously QUIET on the cd. And southern metal has gotten so overrun recently. So it lacks creativity points. MSOD does it best, and these guys probably 2nd best. I gave it a 5, but really i should have given it an 8.

I wouldn't call this southern, man.

It's got some southern...but...I wouldn't call it southern.

And you may want to wait a while before rating a cd...sometimes they get better, sometimes they get worst. But I think you need to have one a while before you can accurately rate it.

The guys in the band actually call it "All American Blue Collar Metal." None of them are from the South.

Yeah but we are referring to the genre, not the location. I know they are from the northeast.

This is a temporary review, i'm in a hurry.

This album isn't good. They definetly lack creativity, riffs are typical, boring, definetly nothing to brag about.
I love the vocalists scream, and I think it's awesome how they aren't doing the sing/scream with the clean vocal melodies.

Breakdowns lack, I mean come on guys, decide, are you hardcore or southern?

But definetly not written in stone, i'll give it more listens and vote.
But so far, complete dissapointment. First impression is that they aren't good enough to be a Solid State band.

If someone were to ask me for a southern metal band suggestion, I would recomend He Is Legend or MATSOD, even though they are rather melodic.
If someone wanted southern metal with very little cleans, I might mention these guys, but warn them that it is only mediocre.

We'll see if my mind changes.
