Yep, I was addicted to them last year, still listen to them a good bit, just not as much. Atlas was fine, just nothing special other than The Blue and The Grey at the end of the album.
Any other recommendations other than ABR and PWD? There's so many bands in that genre that know how to do nothing but chug breakdowns for four minutes, and I wish there were more that pushed the limits like they do.
Common Courtesy was brilliant, and I agree that every album has something special. I was a little let down by What Separates Me From You, only because it didn't have as many memorable songs as Homesick or For Those Who Have Heart, but after multiple listens to it I found that there are some great tracks on it.
August Burns Red are another favourite of mine, good choice! Do you listen to Parkway Drive by any chance? Love those guys!
As have I, been rocking 'em since Homesick. how do you like Common Courtesy? Probably their best as an album, but each release has something to enjoy. Their my second favorite, only next to August Burns Red.
