Attack Attack!

So as I can see, this blog is booming a little bit, so I think I'll start posting twoadays. I figure I'll give a little attention to the mainstream metalcore-ers and talk a little about Attack Attack!

This band, which formed in Ohio, no surprise, has been around since 2005, and has had two albums, both of which feature a different singer. They're a very good mix of metalcore and techno, which the metalcore scene has been seeing more and more of lately. Their music video for the song Stick Stickly, which is my favorite song off of the first album, is also the target of crabcore propaganda. I personally embrace the idea of metalcore just being referred to as crabcore, as it just adds a little bit of fun to the genre.

They're second, self titled album was released earlier this year and has a much different sound, but that also comes partially with the fact that they have a new singer. They're old singer now sings for Of Mice and Men, which is another of my favorites, and will eventually be featured on this blog.  As most of you are probably familiar with Stick Stickly, I'll be featuring Smokahontas off of their newest album.  Have fun.
