    So, I listen to The Acacia Strain quite a bit, somewhat of a guilty pleasure of mine, and have recently realized they've been engaged in a feud with Emmure that's actually quite amusing.

    1) Emmure is accused of ripping off TAS on more than one occasion



    2) In response, TAS writes the song "Skynet" in which the lyrics read:

    If you think like a whore then you're a fucking whore.
    Plagiarism is the highest form of flattery.

    Why would you ever want to be like me?
    We are all someone else's terrible idea.
    If you catch the evil twin then why would you keep it alive?
    If you feel the fucking daggers then why not just step aside?
    You are all bastard children and you've taken it all the wrong way.
    Keep fooling yourself with you unappreciation.
    Look into my eyes and know that I can see right through you.
    I'll erase you from the thoughts and tongues of everyone you know.
    Even if you apologized to me right now it would mean nothing.
    Cry to me and beg for mercy all you want, you're fucking dead.

    I don't care when or why you cry.
    I just want to be there when you die.
    I'll be collecting soon.
    I'll be coming for my payment soon.
    You're nothing but a fucking pig.
    And you owe me your life.
    Vanflip times a thousand.
    Don't believe the hype.
    No care ever.




    3) With Emmure's newest release "Felony" the song R2DEEPTHROAT is essentially a rebuttal to Skynet. The lyrics read:

    I can see right through you
    Now tell me does that sound familiar?
    Now that I got your attention
    I just wanted to say
    I am so flattered that you mention my name

    You've been paying my bills for way too long
    And I'm so happy that you just can't stop talking shit
    Keep running your mouth
    I keep cashing checks
    Snapping necks
    So keep running your mouth
    I keep them shook crews running
    Like they supposed to
    You come around but you never come close to
    I can see it inside your face
    You're in the wrong place
    I implore you to comprehend
    I'm more machine now than man
    You're so vain
    I bet you think this song is about you
    Don't you
    So much for plagiarism
    So much for you to waste your breath running your mouth

    A rat race to the top
    Sore losers never satisfied with what they've got
    Your career is flipping
    So do me a favor
    The next time you see her
    Ask your girl what my dick tastes like
    Yo
    What

    Pretty lame, but it's interesting to see a little drama between bands every once in a while.

    Sorry if this was a repost.

    I've been a pretty big fan of the Acacia Strain for awhile, and I know this guy who lives down the street. One day he came to interview me for his broadcasting school, and afterwards, he brought in some music he wanted to show me. One of the bands was Emmure, and a few minutes in, I was like -________________-

    So, I started playing some Acacia Strain, and it caught him offguard how similar the two sounded, like Emmure was lifting riffs from them. He hasn't listened to them since haha.

    Also, it's nice of God Forbid to appear in Acacia's video as the "band" :lol:

    :agreed:

    And another thing with it is if you ever go to a TAS show they all hang after and at Merch to talk to all the fans. The TAS dudes are straight up and cool as hell... The majority of Emmure seemed ok as I got a chance to talk to them on that last DD tour after the show, but the singer always comes off as a complete egotistical A-Hole. :noway:

    Hmm having just gone on tour with them i have to say i was surprised by how chill and cool they all were. I had heard that they were dicks, but honestly they were down to earth and fun ass dudes to hang out with, always smiling, always in a good mood haha. Apparently the 2 dudes who left were the ones leaving them stressed out and they were misrepresenting the band and mouthing off etc, and now that they have the new dudes they are in good spirits!

    As far as the beef goes, apparently TAS spits on fans who wear emmure shirts to their shows, i dont know if its true or not, but whatever, drama is funny when its not happening to you haha!

    First, with so many bands out there, this isn't really any kind of surprise. It's fairly hard for alot of bands to be original in this day and age, mostly because the musicians aren't creative enough but sometimes because someone somewhere has already done it or something like it before but they've never heard it.

    Second, no wonder they suck now! :lol: ...Of course that's no excuse as to why The Respect Issue was pretty bad as the Lionetti brothers were still on that cd, I believe. Goodbye To The Gallows was very good, but then they just have taken a turn for the worst since then, IMO. Conversely, TACs continent was still pretty damn good..not Dead Walk, but still pretty good.

    Third, I propose both bands fight to the death. I'd be willing to bet TAC comes out victorious, even with Emmure being on Victory records. hahaha

    there's coincidences and then there's rip-offs.

    this is a rip-off.

    Yea, it's pretty obvious. I was meaning to say that Emmure falls in that category of people that either aren't creative enough or are just stupid enough to blatantly rip something off.
