    :eek:ldnews:


    BOO's been around for awhile now. Not like old awhile, but since 2004. I bought the album last summer. It's pretty damn epic. The only thing that bored me pretty quickly was the production. The drums aren't as dynamic as they should be, IMO. The snare sounds way flat. And the guitar tone isn't the greatest either. But all around a great band.

    They are already according to their myspace.

    I like them a lot, although I wouldn't compare them to necrophagist... because I know a lot of necrophagist fans wouldn't like BOO at all. All the sumerian bands have a somewhat similar style and production, but BOO is probably the least technical of the bunch and is usually focusing on grooves... not much shred...

    I dig them, they have some cool grooves in their songs. I picked this up at the same time as Veil of Maya which I like too , but I prefer Born of Osiris abit more.

    Truth be told, they sound so similar to one another, I can't say one's better than the other. :2c:

    However, I'm totally in love with "The New Reign" and "The Common Man's Collapse", regardless.

    Veil of Maya has only 1 guitarist... Born of Osiris has 2. Seen em' both live as we opened for them. I think BOO has a bit better tightness of a sound, but Veil Of Maya are very creative. I dig their style a little more.

    Both bands ARE however pretty much the same and equally kickass.

    One of the bands I'm in has the privilege of opening for them next month, and I am stoked as fuck.

    I'm not really into the -core side of metal, but nonetheless to be opening for a band that's that renowned is awesome.

    ...now if only my preferred style of music could come here...

    If they were the faceless, then that would suck.

    I like that they're similar to veil of maya only add keys and change the vocals ever so slightly and I think VoM has more melodic lines perhaps.

    I plan on seeing them with:

    Arise and Ruin (new album Feb 17) on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads
    TERRORHORSE (ONLINE STORE NOW UP!) on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads
    DEAD AND DIVINE - THE FANCIFUL IN STORES NOW!!! on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads

    and if i didnt have mad expenses, I'd be buying the CD no questions asked!
