    I've been greatly influenced by this band ever since I heard Siberian Kiss on the radio. I think the guitar work is crazy energetic and Daryl has some of the widest dynamic vocal range I've ever heard.

    Any fans up in here?

    I know what you mean. Outside of their first two LPs, i haven't listened to much. Been meaning to dive into their later stuff though.

    Yep. In a band with fans as well.

    Glassjaw was a working song title for us, courtesy of the drum beat :lol:

    New record is great. Saw them last year with Quicksand. Never thought i'd get to see them, since they rarely ever seemed to tour out west

    Big fan of everything you wanted to know about silence. Some great melody and lines in that album.

    That album changed the way i musically percieved things. It came out during a time when every band was downtuning their guitars, so it was refreshing to hear this band that did mostly everything in drop D, but sounded heavier and more energetic than half the shit that was being released at that time.

    Always enjoyed their more "chill" side like Trailer Park Jesus, Must've Run All Day, and Ape Dos Mil, etc

    Gotta love the Zappa references, too. I think they're the band who got me more into hardcore from being a metalhead as a teenager.

    I love them, and they are kickass live too. Worship and Tribute is one of my all time favourite albums . It's funny cause i remember Misha Mansoor linking metropolitan blood loss once and i thought "man those vocals are whack", and then i rediscovered them and the singer's articulation just grew on me.

    I remember instantly loving the vocals upon first listen, but also recall people hating them at first, only to later realize how good they are.
    They are pretty good live, but used to be insane back in the day. They used to have tons of raw energy. They're old dudes now, lol.

    Saw them at arctangent and they were really good last year. Old or not old, it was pure energy, can't even imagine how good it was in the past.

    EYEWTKAS was easily my favorite album for a bit in high school, and I still think it's really unique and loaded with incredibly awesome harmonies and creative guitar work and unique vocals. It's got that great effect-drenched shoegaze thing going at times and has a ton of really cool bassline interplay with the dual guitars, even on the most straightforward numbers like Ry Ry's Song. Almost every song on that album is a killer, besides the totally BR00TAL Babe and Hurting and Shoving, the latter of which at least definitely sucks.

    HOWEVER, some of it's an EXTREMELY uncomfortable listen for me now purely thanks to the lyrics. A few songs on that album are THE apotheosis of misogynistic crybaby teenage guy who turns to violent rage when he gets jilted by some blameless woman, and it really makes me cringe that I identified so hard with the likes of Motel of the White Locust and Lovebites and Razorlines at some point. It's still a great album, but...yeah. Absolutely no way I ever want any women I know today to hear any of that. Haha.

    Worship and Tribute was a huge disappointment. The trio of Mu Empire/Cosmopolitan Bloodloss/Ape Dos Mil is more than equal to the best material on the first album, but there's so much stuff on there that left me completely cold. Gilette Cavalcade of Sports, Trailer Park Jesus, Two Tabs of Mescaline, etc. It occasionally sputters to life, such as Radio Cambodia, but it still feels half-baked compared to the similar Ry Ry's Song. I like almost all of the bonus tracks and b-sides more than the album itself. (Convectuoso, Midwestern Stylings, Grasper, etc)

    Those EPs (Coloring Book and Our Color Green) I remember being quite good but didn't listen to them enough to remember them clearly. I also don't really remember what I thought of the new album other than I was surprised the singer still sounded the same.

    I feel the same way about eyewtkas. But it's funny you mention Gillette, TPJ, and two tabs as being weak tracks on W&T, as I feel like those art the strongest, especially two tabs. I feel that song in particular is the culmination of everything they did well as a band pre-break up. The way Daryl's vocals and the (albeit it simple) guitar riffs come together is just so pure to me.
