Atreyu - The Curse

First I'd like to say... makeup has no place in hardcore. Secondly... I'm sure I'll get flack for this... but this CD sure does bite then big one. The only good thing about is the hot girl on the front cover. The vocals are typical scream then sign then scream then sing... and the dudes scream gets more annoying by the second. After listening to this I'm going to listen to Rapture for a good few hours to forget I ever heard this. (AND I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT "THE RAPTURE", THAT TERRIBLE ELECTO BAND, I'M TALKING ABOUT"RAPTURE", THE GREAT METAL ABND FROM FINLAND. SO STOP CONFUSING THE TWO, NUMBNUTS. CLICK THE LINK AND LISTEN INSTEAD OF FLAPPIN YOUR GUMS)

It's boring, run of the mill, and just plain retarded. I'm still ashamed that this band has the top plays in the mp3 section, there are so many better bands that deserve better. if you want a preview of what all the bands playing this year's hellfest, buy this CD. Otherwise, I'd say avoid this thing like herpes. But if the mainstream kids listen to this and stay away from my favorite bands, I'll be happy.

I don't care much about the image that this band gives off with the make-up and such. It's simply an image. What matters to me is the music that they play. I play the guitar, and as a beginner I can say that the material that they play is quite simple. However, at least in this album they had solos and that's something almost no rock band would ever do and to say that this band has no talent is to say that almost no rock band has talent. Even though I don't listen to rock, I think that'd be quite stupid. Another thing that was mentioned was only kids liking this music. I believe that this is so because I enjoy other bands that don't have the relationship problem filled lyrics and I believe that when I'm older, I'll look back on it and see how the only reason I was so addicted to this music was because of those lyrics. However, to say that anyone who listens to Atreyu is plainly stupid. People have different tastes. Intellegence has nothing to do with musical tastes. And besides the sterio-typed classical music, opera, and such that is made to look like all rich people listen to is to be ignorant and to say that whoever dresses completely in black listens to metal when they could simply be depressed. Or it is to say that whoever is poor will not listen to and enjoy classical music because it doesn't fit their economic status. It simply makes no sense. So stop judging and understand that music is entertainment for everyone, and if something isn't your thing then you should just drop it. Kids need something to listen to as well, and to listen to the hardcore life music is to simply live in fantasy at our ages.

Oh I forgot to mention that I disagree with Atreyu being placed in the "Hardcore/Metalcore" section. Their "Suicide and Butterfly Kisses" album barely fit the "Metalcore" category, but this album has too many melodic vocals to even fit metalcore. I'd consider it "Emocore."

How the hell do you quote? Anyway, I'm replying to cbrickhouse's post that mentioned the economic thing that I mentioned on my post... I'm not sure if I gave the wrong message or you mis-interpreted my message. However, I meant that people label the rich as people who listen to classical music. I never actually meant that poor people can't afford it. I was simply making a statement that too many people are sterio-typing faggots. People listen to what they like, and some of us don't want to only listen to hardcore music. Hardcore is awesome and all, but some of us find other types of music interesting. And besides, we don't only want to stick to hardcore just so we won't be labeled a "poser" or such. People's tastes chance over time. I used to only listen to death metal and hardcore. Seriously, you all joke that you'd rather listen to Britney Spears or shit like that, but would you really? By the way, for you hardcore metalheads, you make it seem like only what you like is good and everything else is bad. I'm guessing that most of you weren't born listening to hardcore music, were you? You grow out of certain types of music, and that's what you've grown out of. But the world doesn't exactly follow you, now does it? Atreyu might not play the most advanced guitar riffs and such, but it's better than the simple chords and beats that rock bands play.

By the way, what does this tommynorcal mean? And why is a similar band 18 Visions? 18 Visions used to be heavy... Atreyu's always been soft... By the way, Atreyu isn't mainstream... The few people in this city who listen to mainstream think Atreyu's too heavy, if that makes any sense at all. Oh well, mainstream kids are usually ignorant and ask pathetic stupid questions such as "Why do you listen to those bands? How do you understand what they're saying?" That's my only problem with mainstream people, ignorance, but if it's what they like as long as they leave my music and me alone, I'm happy.

reviews are supposed to tell you how it really is. chris did an excellent job with this one.

i trust his reviewing capabilities that i will never even listen to this CD because i know he knows what hes talking about.
