Hawthorne Heights - The Silence in Black and White

Victory Records has expanded so much since the days of Blood For Blood, Earth Crisis, Strife, and Deadguy. They went from releasing hardcore cds to releasing mainly whatever you would refer to bands likethis is, and frankly I'm sick of trying to figure out what to call this stuff. I guess you can listen to the below Mp3s and make up your own mind.

This band sounds a crapload like Thursday, but this guy's voice is a little better and not as off-tune as the guy from Thursday. However they follow the same sing and (unessesary) screaming. Save the screaming for death metal and grindcore, where it makes sense. If they were to get rid of that I'd be rating this a bit higher. They have part similar to hardcore breakdowns... and I'm almost 100% sure every 16 year old on this site will have these guys in their favorite band list within the month this is released.

All in all... this is definetly nothing original. If too many bands keep releasing stuff like this and I have to keep reviewing it, I may pull my hair out. Mainly because I've gotten 5 other cds this week that sound exactly like this. It's not terrible... but it's not great either. If anyone replies to this review with "you don't know what you're talking about this band RAWKKKSSS!!!!" it will prove my point that rich white kids have found a new "grunge" to blast in their cul-de-sacs. Well they can have it... I'm going to put on some In-Quest and probably never listen to this again.

Alright you people need to get off it. Hawthorne Heights is a great band. Just cause you think they sound like another band don't mean crap. Most people like that. It's not like you wanna sit there and listen to something totally new because whenever a band dares to do that they FAIL! So get off it people. I love Hawthorne Heights! I have loved them since they came out. Also,I aint no rich little white kid so get off that gay theory to.

If i was to meet these guys i would step on the screamers foot, for one reason....becuase he would just make that annoying monitone scream that just makes yopu want to fuck a horse.......I hate this album with great passion......I never heard a bunch of men try to make people cry............well i cryed becuase i just like like i had to take a shit, it was hurting my ass to much..............Stupid riffs....pointless lyrics........and the meaning to the songs.....forget it, i am not 10 years old, and certanly sick of bands trying to make hard points when it is just imbarressing .......

okay i just saw them live with the black maria (who kick ass), number one fan, and spitalfield. i was actually impressed with hawthorne heights live. they really know how to get a crowd moving. i have a lot more respect for them as musicians and as people. i got to meet most of the group, and they are nice guys. people who are dissing on their music...fine. you dont have to like them, but you dont have to disrespect them either. bleh, whatever. thats my rant.
