    So I'll be posting some reviews, have some rants and just in general talk about music. I'll try to keep it organized and stuff, so yeah... So i guess i'll write a review already.
    A few things to begin, I would like for you guys to disagree with some things that i say, not to argue, just to have a conversation and discuss something. If you think something i say is wrong, just say so and we can discuss it. These are not promotions for any band, just recommendatiion (oviously). If you'd like to see a review of a band, just say so and I'll see what i can come up with. This is gonna be mostly anything to do with Rock, Screamo, Metal, Indie, Punk, Electronica, and a few other genres thrown in, so keep looking here to see what i post.

    Alesana

    Shawn Milke: vocals, guitar, piano
    Dennis Lee: vocals
    Adam Ferguson: guitar, vocals
    Patrick Thompson: guitar
    Steven Tomany: bass
    Jeremy Bryan: drums

    I myself don't own any of their albums, i get most of my music from the internet to put on my mp3 player. Anyways this band has had a good lineup.
    Many people don't like Shawns clean vocals, but to me they are perfect. I meen his voice is high pitched, but it fits in good mwith the music. Dennis probally isn't the best screamer but does and fudgin' good job at wat he does.
    Their first album was 'On Frail Wings of Vanity and Wax' They brought in a number of crowds. Headbangers liked their awesome riffs, Emo/Scene kids liked their emotional lyrics, and much more. Anyways my point is their a good screamo band that has a large varity of fans. But sadly their newest released CD 'Where Myth Fades To Legend' Hasn't been as big of a deal.Alesana will fight its way into your stereos and into your hearts.

    Greenday
    They could be the most overrated fake-punk band, ever!
    Billie Joe Armstrong
    Mike Dirnt
    Tré Cool
    These three guys are talented, no lie i own one of their cds. But i get tired when people go around aying that Greenday is a true punk band. They are completly wrong, if you want to listen to punk bands i'll make a whole list of them. Anyways Greenday started in 1986, or 1897 don't remeber, i'll check later. Anyways they now have two bands, yep correct Foxboro Hot Tubs are Greenday. All 3 memebers.Foxboro Hot Tubs is a 60's influenced rock band if anyone was wondering. My favorite cd by Greenday is Dookie, very cool sound. Anyway, cool band, just a tiny bit overrated, and always in the wrong genre.

    The High Court
    As promised here is a review of The High Court.
    JB - Vocals
    Ben - Guitar/Vocals
    Denny - Drums
    Shell - Bass/Vocals
    Mike - Guitar
    This band brkie up a litle while back, so nothing new will come from them unless they decide to get together again. They have one Cd out called Puppet Strings, good sound, their lyrics meen alot, about many subjects. They were a 'crunk' alternative band with a nice uptempo beat (cept for heaven on the horizon).Riffing guitar solos, and an irresistible personality , most definately worth listening too.

    Nice Journal!

    I am not a big fan of "Screamo" so Alesana is a bit brash for me. I am a mellow girl! LOL

    Green Day is ok. I listen to them. I like American Idiot and Boulevard of Broken Dreams.

    The High Court isn't too bad! A shame though they have broken up. The guitar riffs are great.

    I guess they are considered a post-hardcore screamo band, tell me if i'm wrong.
    Buddy Nielsen
    Garrett Zablocki
    Dan Trapp
    Heath Saraceno
    Jason black

    This band is alright i thought some of you people who like MCR, The Used , and all those needed something else to listen to so i wrote this for all of you. (haha?)You'll enjoy them =). Anyways this band is pretty cool, not one of my favorites , but i would recomend it to anyone. They formed in 2002 and the first thing they relased was an EP called 'From the Depths And Dreams' They used thier harcore/punk influence and the meaning of Nirvana to make this EP. Their emotion in their lkyrics were pretty intence. Their Debut album 'Let it Enfold You' was released in 2004. In 2007 after there release of 'Still Searching' Their bassist left for some other side project. They found a replacement for Mike, Jason Black from Hot Water music. They are now working on a new album wwich you should be looking out for. If i would have to compare this band to another i would say My Chemical Romance, i don't know why the sound is similar i guess, their vocals are differnet , but yea.
