Had never heard of these guys til tonight, so of course they have already split up by the time I find out about them.

Apparently their first album was a deathcore album, then by album two they switched to this amalgamation of metal/glam/aor/pomp/modern/whatever.

I have now ordered albums 2 and 3 based on these videos, but think I will skip album 1.

 

I did a search for the band on here, and only came up with a few small "listening to" type posts from the likes of Stefan, but I think a few people here will like them.

Did a search for them twice. once with topic and once as posts, both times the most I came up with was "currently listening to" type things.

Weird.

Yeah, how'd you miss them, Howdy? Now I know for sure you don't read my posts, lol. It was my favourite album of 2012 too.

 

And yeah, Karpetface, they broke up a while back. They recruited the lead singer from British band The Morning After, recorded one song with the dude but then broke up. I saw the guitarist had already started up a new solo guitarist project. There was a video on youtube which was pretty cool if you dig instrumentals.

 

A real shame about these guys. But it's basically the blueprint for any great modern rock band. Create a killer disc, then that's it. Lights out. Very depressing...

Well Feel the power came today (Pedal to the metal is on the way) and I am currently blasting it out, loving it. Even the growly vocals on a couple of tracks are not off putting.

Annoying that I only just get into them after they have split.

By all accounts though I am not even gonna bother with the debut as its apparently straight up deathcore metal.

Here's the solo stuff from Shred" Sean Maier (BBABH guitarist) I was talking about (stupidly tacky, but really pretty cool). The project is/was called Shred Starz:

Their last lead singer before their demise is also actually the frontman of Close Your Eyes, which I did not know. I actually rated their album 'Line In The Sand' quite well last year. Despite a really, really heavy British accent, which was also the issue with The Morning After. Not sure how that would have gone with BBABH anyway. Ah, so sad. :(

Definitely do not bother. Not even listenable.

And nobody brought up they were Christians! only album I cared for was whichever one had the lead off track the chorus lyrics said, "Mama sold her soul to the devil" and didst even care for all of that one, that debut fucking sucked in so many different ways, I couldn't believe my ears, I was so totally mind blown, I deleted the entire thing, FUCK THAT release.

Isn't every band christian these days? Just as long as they don't sing about it, though, that's cool with me. Or talk about it. Or even mention it...

    • Kind of where I'm at too.  I like a few tunes here and songs are okay but alot of the songs sort of feel samey.  I think I've put 3 songs in my playlist from it.  
    • I'm with you and think it might be similar for me. I always loved H.E.A.T with Erik and was pretty much a Kenny basher as I wasn't a fan of those first 2 albums at all.  I had very low expectations and really didn't think I'd care much for new music with Kenny.  Anyways, I've slowly come around on Kenny as the singles were released and I'm enjoying the new album.  Yeah, it's not exciting me quite as much as the Gronwall albums did but Kenny sounds excellent to my ears and I'm having no issues with sound or production.  Just sounds like some good melodic hard rock to me.
    • Yeah, at the moment he's the only option for me here. A few guys I'm not really interested in and although EM was everywhere a few years ago, he definitely appears to have settled down recently. If anything, wouldn't mind seeing his name pop up a little more these days, though it's fine as is. 
    • I've been a bit let down by recent albums but the genuine anticipation I feel for new material from these guys means they must have done something right through the years. Would absolutely love it if they unexpectedly hit another homerun.

    • I have no real opinion on the band's schtick. I do have an opinion on their earlier albums - they contained a lot of good songs. The last few... not so. Hope they can pull something out here but expectations aren't high
