Atreyu - The Curse

First I'd like to say... makeup has no place in hardcore. Secondly... I'm sure I'll get flack for this... but this CD sure does bite then big one. The only good thing about is the hot girl on the front cover. The vocals are typical scream then sign then scream then sing... and the dudes scream gets more annoying by the second. After listening to this I'm going to listen to Rapture for a good few hours to forget I ever heard this. (AND I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT "THE RAPTURE", THAT TERRIBLE ELECTO BAND, I'M TALKING ABOUT"RAPTURE", THE GREAT METAL ABND FROM FINLAND. SO STOP CONFUSING THE TWO, NUMBNUTS. CLICK THE LINK AND LISTEN INSTEAD OF FLAPPIN YOUR GUMS)

It's boring, run of the mill, and just plain retarded. I'm still ashamed that this band has the top plays in the mp3 section, there are so many better bands that deserve better. if you want a preview of what all the bands playing this year's hellfest, buy this CD. Otherwise, I'd say avoid this thing like herpes. But if the mainstream kids listen to this and stay away from my favorite bands, I'll be happy.

no songs about crying eh?

A Song For The Optimists Lyrics

Blow the last candle out. let the was harden
I wish I could stop crying. I wish someone still loved me
Just breathe and focus. how can I when the air is so cold and empty
That my lungs froze right in my chest
I'll be honest the silver linings are getting harder and harder to manufacture
And the smiles are so difficult to fake
What do I have to do, or who do I have to kill, to get what I want. what I need
Happiness is an emotion I was born to this world without,
nothing pleases me. I cannot be satiated
Thru this toil I will breed my own distress and destroy my best hopes,
fuck up the only things I love.
I WATCHED MY DREAMS DIE.
I watched my aspirations crash to the ground on the backs of the angels that I've slain.
But I meant so well, I tried to hard, gave every ounce of my soul, to what end.
Desolation, desire, exhale, pass away.

they don't sing about girls either?

Ain't Love Grand Lyrics

Gutted like a pig, all you want is the world to bleed,
someone somewhere stole your desire
The pain akin to, being punched in the throat, and stabbed in the chest
You would rather bleed than be without her
Gone are the tender whispers dancing in your ears
Replaced with lackluster memories you cry, your screams play in your empty room
It's so hard to see when your eyes are rolling in the back of your head
It's even harder to speak when everything you say just comes out wrong
Your bed swallows you whole as the days bleed together, torment on the lips
Of a loved one, and if you try hard enough,
you can almost taste her, feel her pass and
Scream, OH GOD WHY ME

who's an idiot?

Atreyu are one of the most amazing bands i've heard for years. They combine sensitive lyrics with the alteration of screaming, aswell sa having awesome guitar, bass and drum parts.

They're not overrated here in the UK, and not many people know who they are.

Just cause they wear make-up doesnt automatically make them death metal or goth shit, they're individual, and thats why i love them so much.

One day all you teenagers will wake up and realize that you really have atrocious taste in music. Well the ones that like talentless bands like Atreyu at least.
