Great music. I'm glad the vast majority of the singing isn't screaming, it would probobly just make them scene as fuck. He's got a great voice, and I love how political their shit is. I got one of their other albums though, not really diggin' it, they used to almost be straight up true hardcore, on the punk side, but this release is brilliant, Kezia.

Thanks for the heads up.

Have you guys heard any "protest the hero"?
It takes awhile to get used to them. It took me along time because I wasn't really into how beserk they are. But yea their new album "kezia" is rediculous, apparently they have been writing since their early highschool years and they wrote it before they could even come close to playing it and then forced themselves to learn it. The songs on these sites from their new album are Nautical and Blindfolds Aside.

Definitely check these guys out, alot of talent here.

Ok my topic got merged, i'm too lazy to edit my first post.

Actually their new album isn't political at all. It's actually all about a story that they thought up.
I'll try to explain it but i'm still not clear on the story.
Kezia is a woman who is imprisoned for something. The CD is separated into 4 sections. Each section is in a different character's point of view. The characters are Kezia, the prison priest and the prison guard/gunman.

But yea you can figure out the rest.

I checked them out since they're playing with The Fall of Troy and Anterrabae and man oh man I haven't been able to go a day without listening to Kezia at least once. I'm real excited for the show now.

How is their old stuff? I'll probably get it anyways, just wondering.

I find their old stuff kind of sloppy and i'm not really into the old vocals but yea it's all good.
"Soft targets make softer graves" is cool and so is "silent genocide"

Protest the Hero + Fall of Troy = wow i wish i lived in the U.S...... wait no i don't. But yea thats an awesome combination.

:thumbsup:

great shit man, I'm seriously

The guitar in this band doesn't make me want to kill myself like in so many like bands. Very fast, switching directions on a dime.

Outstanding singing with comeback kid shout alongs and the occasional bark but still.. sick.

Kezia is a solid motha fuckin' album

This is pretty good stuff. I haven't heard all of the full length, 'Kezia' yet but the EP was solid!!

Yeah, I wrote a review for them for the website I used to work for. Kezia's a brilliant album. Pre-Kezia's pretty shitty though. By far in my favorite/only listenable 10 "scene" releases, IE "core" music, etc.

Definitely as tech if not moreso than Thomas from TFOT. I've learned most of Doppleganger, but can seem to only pick up parts of Kezia.

I LOVE the fact that the majority of the vocals are clean, with no screaming, it's soooo refreshing for an otherwise dead, boring, generic genre such as metalcore.

I discovered them rather recently, and bought Kezia. I was not dissapointed wit this album, there are no weak tracks.

Their bassist is one of the coolest people I've seen play live, they're alright recorded, I didn't see anything too amazing in their cd though.

I do like the predominently clean vocals as opposed to hardcore vocal screaming all the time. It gets old though, the music's amazingly technical, obviously, but it's very repetitive.
