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.

HH sent out a mass email for fans to bring a cowbell to the show and play the cowbell during the bullet song.

so if your going to the show, remember the cowbell.

i dont see what the fuss is about, wow, hawthorn heights have 3 guitars! but the funny thing is, not one of them have a bit of talent! these guys are terrible, and i hope that they have fun lacking integrity and touring with taking back sunday until time ends. and itll never matter who headlines, because they both sound exactly.fucking.alike.

ill admit, i really like this cd. the three guitars gives them an advantage and it seems to work. there are some good layering effects. sure it might be generic, but that doesnt mean its bad.
