Someone please stop this terrible band from making any more music. I felt the veins behind my eyes bulge as the tracks played, making it feel as if my brain was going to explode and shoot noodles all over my basement. I really don't know what sound they're they're going for, but the sound they found is "brain tumor", as in thats what I ended up with after listening to this.

I don't see why people hate this band so much,They kick new Norma Jean in the fucking face,though they are nothing compared to old Norma Jean.The Chariot is not music I get gripped by,but it is something decent to listen to.It's dark,hard,heavy,fast,raw, and very much original by the fact that it's so dischordant.I must admit that the drop D open palm mute thing is predominant in Norma Jean and The Chariot,but it's complemented by the weird other chords or semi-leads and riffs.Josh Scogin is not a musical genius no,however I think his voice is decent.I usually don't like bands that use his brand of scream but for some reason his scream is good.The main problem with The Chariot is that the dysfunction that makes the songs interesting also makes the album boring because it is aparent throughout the entirety.As far as their musical creativity...I wouldn't say it is completely absent.I particularly like the weird vocal sound made about 1:19 into If Wishes Were Horses More Beggars Would Ride Them.I will condemn the lyrics on this album for sure though,they are ok,but they seem fitted in a little randomly and they don't always have a clear context.But all in all if you just want a band to listen to The Chariot isn't the worst choice.I mean sucky hardcore is bands like Atreyu and Avenged Sevenfold,those bands have no relevance to this music...I also hate bands like Bleeding Through,As I Lay Dying,and Between The Burried And Me...those bands make me feel nothing when I hear them.

DUH space HxC.....ummm obviously that's what these guys went for. They're good at what they do. very annoying at times but if you like sloppy grindy circle pit music then these guys are what that is. Seeing as how they did make this cd in one take instead of constantly re-doing each chord that doesn't sound PERFECT like the majority of big bands now days. Admit that they are good at what they do.

don't take the grind comparisson to literal they're far from grind but the way songs are put together in a way they're alike.

You people are fucking STUPID. god I hate arguing about music but let me explain something to you. Any given band can make themselves sound incredible, it's called modern technology. You can make every instrument sound exquisite with the spin of a knob and a touch of a button. Anybody here heard and liked Bless the Martyr, Kiss the Child by Norma Jean? if so you're a bunch of dumb fucks, at least the ones who didn't like the chariot. The chariot recorded this album without the help and manipulation of computers. This shit is 100% authentic, which you're not used to hearing.

After seeing this band, I can honestly say, they are in the top 5 of worst live band I have ever seen. All I could do was sit there with my jaw almost in disbelief shaking my head and wondering how these idiots love a band like this, but a band as great as High on Fire gets no respect from them.

And like Decoyslikescurves just proved, it's all 16 year old newjacks that love this shit.
