  1. [quote name='Zen'][size=1] That's why I'm not a big critic of bands who emphasize breakdowns in their songs. While all the arm-chair music critics who only listen to music for technicality and extreme skill hate on those kinds of bands (Bring Me The Horizon, Emmure, Suicide Silence, etc), those same bands are always the ones who put on the most intense live shows. That's why they write with breakdowns in mind, because they don't plan on playing to a person in an armchair, they plan to play for thousands of young fans ready to wreck a venue. They write music to be played live, not to be li
  2. [quote name='Zen'][size=1]I'm just a big fan of going to shows in general. Everyband doesn't have to be top-notch for me to enjoy the show itself, its just a fun experience.[/size][/quote] [size=1]Very true, I'm going to the After The Burial/Miss May I/Emmure show here in San Diego this Saturday night. While I can't STAND Emmure, I have to admit the energy they give off during shows is pretty intense, you can't help but wanna move around and fvck sh!t up hahahaha[/size] [quote name='Zen'][size=1]But come on man... Dillinger... they taught all these kids how its done back in '99. Yo
  3. [size=1]Honestly? They have their moments with me. I like a few select songs, none of which I can name off the top of my head due to my serious lack of listening to them very often. I just can't get into them though. I can respect them for having a fair degree of technicality and originality to some of their songs, but it's just not what I'm into. Don't even get me started on some of the other bands playing though. i.e. Emmure, Attack Attack[/size]
  4. [quote name='James'][font=franklin gothic medium]I'm going through a Dreamcast rennaissance at the moment. I'm thinking of actually posting about it at OB World (it'd be nice to actually post stuff that isn't just about specific threads, too).[/font][/QUOTE] [size=1]OH GOD. For the past month, I've had the strongest urge to break out my N64 and play the hell out of it. Unfortunately, I sold it a while back. Stupid me figured I'd never use it again, and that I'd gotten over video games. Yeah, that was before the incredible urge to play Ocarina of Time all over again came back. Ti
  5. [quote name='Zen'][size=1]Whitechapel Parkway Drive iwrestledabearonce In Fear And Faith[/size][/QUOTE] [size=1]The only ones worth going for, in my opinion. Every other band playing there seems to be generic, talentless metalcore bands. The metal/-core scene is definitely going into the mainstream. No good, in my opinion. Nonetheless, I'm still gonna call in sick to work to go to this... ._.[/size]
  6. [size=1]lulz, Underoath? Define The Great Line was a great cd, they're utter sh!t live though. No idea why they got mentioned in this thread though, haha Anyone heard of Burning The Masses? I've been friends with all of them since before they became a band They're pretty big now though =][/size]
  7. [size=1]Prepare for awesome: [center][/center] GODDAMN I have to see them again asap. It's After The Burial, with their new vocalist, playing "Cursing Akenaten." :drool:[/size]
  8. [quote name='Nomurah!']I like Veil of Maya, boothten. Considering most of the bands you pointed out as generic don't sound alike other than yes, they use breakdowns, considering that's a big part of what metalcore and deathcore is... I'm sure you havn't heard most of them. If you want technical stuff, the best technical deathcore band is probably [B]Born of Osiris[/B].[/COLOR][/SIZE][/QUOTE] [size=1]You must not have heard After The Burial. Or the new All Shall Perish album. BOO kinda of copied Veil Of Maya's sound. Veil started the whole super tech deathcore sound, and BOO took HEAVY infl

Oceano are really good though, same with Winds. I've recently started listening to more technical deathcore. Stuff like Veil Of Maya, All Shall Perish, Whitechapel, After The Burial, and LOADS more.

  10. [size=1]They're all pretty messy, and with the exception of the third one they just don't look like they flow very well. Work on making your focal a more important part of the signature, otherwise you get something like your last one. A tag that just has way too much going on in it. Remember, more isn't necessarily better. Just keep working at it though. ;D![/size]

  16. [size=1]Alright, here I go haha. The main thing you should work on your banners, in my opinion, is overall quality. It seems like you're getting low-quality images and using them for these signatures. Make sure you're getting high quality stocks and renders, otherwise the quality as a whole for the signature is going to suffer. As everyone has already said, everything text-related could use work. Text choice is pretty bad, expecially in that first one. Text placement is pretty bad as well. One thing I [i]always[/i] tell people when giving a critique for their signature is this: "un

I've actually never heard of an Avatar Of The Week contest on any GFX forums I frequent, but I've no doubt it's out there. If you'd like, OtakuBoards has a thread where you can submit avatars you've made and/or don't use anymore so that other members can use them as their own.

    [size=1]Yeah, San Diego is an especially connected scene if you ask me. Everyone knows everyone for the most part, we all go to the same shows, it's all just good times. I like making new friends in the pit, haha. Like, whenever a band finishes a song, I like walking around talking to random kids and what-not. It's cool, cause if s**t happens to go down, you have a new friend to have your back, hahahaha. And Aberinkula! For shame. What do you not like about Whitechapel? Just curious, how did everyone start to get into their extreme music genre? Ha, if that doesn't make sense, what ban

    [size=1]Zen, have you taken a listen to their new stuff? Hah, you named songs from "The Somatic Defilement." I'm talking about "This Is Exile." OHMYGAWD. And here I thought the songs from "The Somatic Defilement" were brutal, heavy, and awesome. Seriously, please listen to [i]anything[/i] from "This Is Exile," haha. [i]FANTASTIC[/i] stuff. And Suicide Silence is awesomeee. I actually know and talk to everyone regularly. They're from San Diego county, I knew them before they were big haha.
